Sometimes you can’t understand why some things happen. You think you’re doing great, keeping up, being nice, whatever it is, & then BAM. It’s like a punch in the gut. It knocks the wind out of you. So you sit down & try to comprehend what the hell just happened, but you can’t. & you know what? That’s okay. You just sit there for as long as you need, cry a little if you have to, laugh it off, whatever you need to do to get over it. & then do that… get over it.
A while ago, I put an end to a one-sided relationship & in doing so, I opened myself up to the biggest blessing that’s ever walked into my life. Yes, it was tough & it hurt, but then I healed & I was able to move on & be happy.
I think back to that day/week quite often. Because if I hadn’t broken it off, where would I be now? Not here, that’s for sure! So that’s how I think of it now, it was a blessing. I could not be happier with where I’m at & what I’m doing now. & I would have never been here in a million years if I hadn’t done what I did that day.
Life can be real crappy sometimes. But its also beautiful & wonderful & exciting. No matter what, you’re always doing better than you think you are.
Do you have a job? Great!
Are you going to school? Awesome!
Staying at home & raising children? Go you!
Do you have a place to stay? Yes yes yes!
Do you have a car? Even better!
Are you healthy? FANTASTIC!
All over this world there are people who are hungry, sick, cold, or homeless. No matter what you’re going through, it could always be worse. I have to tell myself that when I’m going through something particularly trying… & that’s okay too, it keeps me humble & it keeps me happy.
Remember to be thankful for everything that you have in this life because there are people all over with less than you.
& if you’re going through a rough patch right now, know that there are better things ahead for you. Focus on that if you have to. This is not how it will always be, it will be better soon. There are blessings ahead!
