Yesterday, I sat and thought about all the things my heart wants to see. Things I have dreamed of ever since I was a little girl. I noticed how much heavier they felt now. Like children, dreams have a way of growing right before your eyes without you noticing. One day you wake and feel as though you are no longer strong enough to carry these desires anymore. At least not like you used to. Then life becomes a scale of you balancing their weight vs the wait.

So yesterday, in my exhausted state, I looked around the room and felt overwhelmed with how the same that day felt to the day before. Ever had that? Where despite your hard work everything appears to be ordinary. Just another day of carrying the dream, while the sky has the audacity to just let the sun and moon rise without much fuss. Without much hope. And while I processed all this, the pinkish hue of light that seemed to peek through the window caught my eye. Like a child running down the stairs on Christmas Day, I grabbed my shoes and took off running outside. And this is what I saw.

I stood and studied the sky as though it was the answers to a test I would be taking the next day. My eyes tried to drink in every cloud and swirl. I’ve seen many sunsets in my day. but I wanted to remember this one. It felt important. And today, on another day that feels painfully ordinary, my heart comes back to the sunset. I see it now. It indeed was the answer. And that answer was just a reminder to me, that in the midst of all our ordinary, out of seemingly nowhere magic happens. The same ol skies we have been faithfully working beneath, suddenly explodes with color, and new opportunity, and favor and blessing and dreams fulfilled. And while those around you clap over the wonder of that “overnight success” you shake your head knowing they missed the most breathtaking part. The real beauty was how your ordinary yesterday surprised you with something extraordinary today. How you survived all that weight and wait, just for this moment.
