I guess break is over because I find myself truly realizing that maybe I’ve relied on alot of things that presented a false sense of comfort instead of the things that made me, me and got me where I am. So often we forget that getting to a place that provides a certain comfort means quality maintenance and to never take anything for granted. The same things can be said about relationships. It all takes balance and nurturing. So many things wake us up to the realization of asking ourselves are we living for our purpose or am I just dialing it in?
True confession: I’ve had moments that made me want to quit and even more truth I had days where I was just dialing it in. Seeing some of the dark parts of our world made me so solemn and bitter. There are things that I’ve experienced last month that made me feel so inferior and powerless. I had to pull myself out of darkness and get back up. That hasn’t been easy but you realize that life isn’t just happening to you and ultimately things could be worse.
I was listening to a rising artist named Taye The Truth who has this song called “Turbulence” that spoke to my heart about what I was personally experiencing. ( https://open.spotify.com/track/6h1A0tqp6qU4XjDGFWRukV?si=019a6c9562f34405See ) When we realize there are moments that we just need to let go of what we can control and hold the fuck on because the storm will pass and we become stronger, wiser, and more resilient. In all of these seasons, it is truly a choice to endure and build instead of being in a constant place of worry and suffering. The highs and lows are truly something and it’s important to show the world who we are instead of hitting the panic button through everything that life throws at you. If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
I’ve also found out that True power lies not in changing everything around you, but in owning your perspective and finding a way to be grateful in any circumstance. I welcome these moments and I will continue to push the weight off of me on all levels. We are often told to worry about tomorrow and the things out of our control. Life will always be life and sometimes the sting of it comes when you least expect it. If anything I’ve learned and don’t mind sharing the fact that you must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it. Life is unpredictable, and that’s what makes it exciting. Embrace the ups and downs with a smile, and keep moving forward towards your goals. We too often wait for a perfect moment. Well I say don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect. I’ve failed too many times to count but God isn’t finished with me and if anything I’ve truly learned that if Christ is for me then who can be against me. Make the most out of the mess and evolve.
Psalm 27 1
The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
