“There will Come a Time”—a Message for Women on their Long Journey Home.

Dear you,

There will come a time in your life when you will no longer care about what people say, nor waste your time on the latest drama. You will value—above anything else—your peace of mind. You will know how to cherish your family, your closest relations, and even those who have left you or who you have left behind.

There will come a time when you no longer fancy things or material possessions if they do not involve sunshine, salty hair, and mother ocean to keep you occupied. 

There will come a time, my dear, when all the things you long for will flow naturally to you: a healthy and active body, a career with purpose, excellent jobs, and opportunities to think about. 

But above all, a gentle smile when you look in the mirror. The reflection like you once knew. How you have grown and operate more and more from that meditative and calm state of mind. 

There will come a time when you’ll find a way to share your story with those wishing to hear it. Softly. Silently. Without the endless battles of your ego or swimming against the tide.

There will come a time, my dear, when you will know what it is that you need, even though you are forever changing—just as life is meant to be.

There will come a time when you look back and wonder at all that you are, or have been. You will say thank you and let that version of yourself go with ease and mindful consideration. It was she who started this long journey home. She took you to all these places for you to grow, study, learn, and seek.

Dear you, you are bound for beautiful destinations—not because you are so unique or different, but because you dare to follow what is inside of you and lead. 

Dear you, there will come a time when you will lose many interests, things that no longer mean anything to you, as they don’t give you joy, health, or energy. 

Dear you, that time has arrived.
