Surrender means accepting any outcome. With gratitude. I know this. I'm just not quite there yet...My resistance always coalesces into the same question: "Why does life have to be so painful?".
Hello! I'm Emma. My blog is in transition. It used to focus on personal growth and spiritual transformation.
Update November 2020
My life has changed a lot in the last 7 years as I married a prisoner and waited for him to be released. I haven't written on this blog very often since then and much of it is outdated in terms of how I think currently. You can read some of my more recent writing on my site emmaarbogast.com.
When you have an experience in life that strips away everything you thought you knew, and everything you thought was real, that is when you find what is actually real and cannot be taken from you.
Life, pain, God, and loving yourself and the world with such fierceness that you find the state of Grace.
My childhood as a failed protector-of-moths, why this blog feels so vulnerable to me, and how I don't want the story to end there.
Wherein I get everything my heart desires and am still unhappy. But not for the reasons you're thinking.
