Times change, people change, and things fall apart.

Most of the time, all of it just creeps upon us unannounced.

And in some cases, these things hit us like a ton of bricks.

When things do fall apart, they can make or break us, inside and out.

Falling apart can alter the content of our souls and character.

These shifts and changes can also feel like a peeling away or redefining in our lives.

Ironically, though, it’s often in hindsight that we even realize what has actually fallen apart.

Whatever falls apart in or around us can be a blessing, it just depends on our perspectives.
