Ruin is a Gift


'It feels like a precious wound, a heartbreak you won't let go of because it hurts too good. We all want things to stay the same. Settle for living in misery because we're afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. When I look around at this place, at the chaos it has endured - the way it has been adapted, burned, pillaged and found a way to build itself back up again, I am reassured. Maybe my life hasn't been so chaotic, it's just the world that is, and the real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.' ~ Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
