More To Come …

It can be easy to believe that something we’re working through or struggling with won’t get any better or that the weight we’re carrying will only become heavier. For a time, it will feel like things may never blossom, improve, or be fulfilled — but we haven’t overcome everything that’s crossed our path so far for this to be where opportunity, growth and love stops. There are more good things to come.

poem by molly from transatlantic notes called more to come that reads you deserve to see how much more love will come your way, hold on

If you know someone who is struggling with something, don’t wait for them to reach out for help and support — chances are they won’t — check on them and see what you can do for them or simply remind them that they deserve to experience the love and joy that will come after the challenges, upheavals and lows have eased.

  1. Coincidentally, today I came across a friend who was going through a really bad depressive episode since she couldn’t ace her exams due to the pandemic. And, I knew she isn’t paying attention to my words of comfort and I am constantly talking to her, and luckily she is feeling better by emptying out her heart to me. It is indeed extremely important to check up on your loved ones, especially in times of a pandemic, which has been hard on all of us.

  2. Visiting your blog for the first time and I just have to add you to my reading list. A friend has been having a tough go at it and I’ve been too busy with my own mess to really check in. This is a good reminder. Thank you for posting x
