The realization that those things and people in your life that showed the capacity to develop into something in the future can no longer be due to a variety of reasons. Life happens. People happen. Sometimes things just happen and we don’t know why.
I have realized this and it still has the ability to suck. Unrealized potential for me is one of the saddest affairs. Why? Because there *was potential and for whatever reason and that potential has faded, disappeared, or has somehow lost its will to fight.
This could be a new business venture, and new idea, a passion that once was and is no longer. It could be a possible new love that has the potential to whisk you and all your dreams away. Either way…it is no longer.
But what I do know is that regardless of this unrealized potential coming to fruition that life still moves on. More importantly life gets richer. What we once thought was unrealized potential for a certain thing is then replaced by something much greater, richer, and more full of life than we ever could have dreamed or imagined.
I have been blessed beyond measure AFTER some of these potentials have become unrealized for me. I have grown both personally and professionally far beyond what I could ever think. That’s what I have hope in. That’s what I look back on and give thanks for. That’s what I trust in…His hand guiding my way.
So if you feel like there is some unrealized potential in your life….don’t fret. The realization of something far greater is around the corner on His timing.
