Sometimes I have days when I stare at this screen and wonder if I will ever start typing. These are the harder days. They are not hard as in finding something to be thankful for, there is always something to be thankful for, but they are hard as in the day as been a more difficult one. I am not going to sit here and act like my life is perfect and that all my days are great because sadly no one’s are. We all have bad days for various reasons, but how we handle those days makes us better in the long run. No, my day was not affected because I have to go back to school. I am actually kind of excited about that, but it was just one of those domino effect days. By that, I mean once one thing happened, everything started falling in sync. You know what they say, when it rains, it pours. I know that life isn’t meant to be easy and I am kind of glad that God gives me the hard things all at once because that just makes the good days even better. So today, as I sit by my fire and take it all in, I have a couple of realizations.
1. Never does it say God’s plan for us is easy. With that being said, I have to remember that no matter what he is the one person I can always count on (and my family too).
2 . I need to realize that things have changed. I cannot have a college life and the life I love at home. I can have a nice blind, but I can’t have them both.
3. Jealously comes from the devil and it only makes things worse. Being jealous is negative and that is something that no one needs in there life.
4. I need to stop getting my feelings hurt by things that don’t even deserve my time or energy. I mean honestly, will any of this matter? no. This is life and this is what makes a person prepared for it.
5. People are put in our life for a reason. Some to stay. Some to go. That is also part of God’s plan that I have to stop trying to control.
No, I don’t need you to worry. That also comes from the devil… trust me. I am completely fine. I just needed a place to express my self and as I last checked, this is what I do this for. I express myself the best here and if you would like to read and learn from my off days, go ahead. If not, carry on! I am thankful for a place to express myself where I can be myself. I am thankful for the things I learn from a day that didn’t go as planned. It is okay though because the hardest days are often followed by the best. Sorry for the rant… It was needed! Don’t let hard days get you down… learn form them and move on. Remember the future is oh so bright! I sure am thankful for it!
