When you think everything is sorted and all of a sudden……..
July 12, 2019
In life, nothing comes easy not even your happy moments. You have to fight for them, face the difficulties, go through struggles and even then you might get what you want. You will work hard for fulfilling your desires, your dreams and will start to think that you have achieved what you wanted to but then life will take a complete u-turn and you will be left with nothing. When you think everything is sorted in your life and you have achieved it all and you have it all in you, then life will give you struggles, it will test you to the extent that you will want to quit and take a step back from everything in life. All of a sudden all the sorted things will appear to be mixed up and puzzled, nothing will be clear, you will be lost, the feeling of failure will catch you and anxiety will take place of the happiness.
You don’t get to choose what events comes your way. The sorrows that interrupt your life not even the happiness that will make you smile…nothing is to be chosen by you. They will likely to be a surprise for you in your life, it will catch you off guard and unprepared. Just when you start to think you have everything sorted out, you suddenly realize what a mess you have landed yourself into. Life is funny sometimes… just when you think you have got it all right and figured out and you start to plan something and get excited about, everything will change. You will have to stop thinking that you are stuck in a situation forever. We feel like nothing will heal and nothing will be alright and you will never get out of the impossible situation and its a struggle. Don’t confuse your situation with lifetime. You will grow and life will change, things will eventually work out.
Disappointments are just God’s way of saying ‘ I have got something better”. Be patient and have faith in yourself. Your journey will mold you for creator good. It will be exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you have lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to this place. Things don’t happen for a reason. We are grasping for ways to make sense of the chaos around us. We try to give meaning to things which don’t have a meaning. We focus more on hope than on reality. We are like lost souls wondering endlessly and desperately seeking comfort from the notion that things will work out eventually. We trick ourselves in believing that everything will be sorted and fine in the end. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that everything will be OK…maybe not now, maybe not tomorrow, but one day it will be. Things and people change for a reason… you just have to accept it and let go.
Life is hard. Sometimes we just want to give up on everything, giving up on things and even people. Sometimes we have good days and sometimes bad days. Every day you question yourself.. “what is this for and why”, “ Am I making a right move”, “ Is this the place where I want to be”, “ where am I suppose to be”?. We have more questions than answers and sometimes we don’t even know how to explain our situations to others. We start to feel that we have made ourselves clear to everyone and we have sorted everything but suddenly the feeling of emptiness hits back and we start to question ourselves again.
Eventually, all the pieces fall into places. Laugh at the situation, deal it with passion. Live the moment and know that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life is all about your dreams, hopes, and vision for the future. But there are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other and that’s okay…… if you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way. Feeling unsure and lost is a part of your path. don’t avoid it.
