Dear non aliens, April 30, 2018
Life is too short to let yourself wallow in misery. Life is too short to keep yourself sitting in sorrow. Life is way too precious to not take every opportunity you have to sit back, chill out and just laugh. The good kind of laugh, the kind, kind that makes your cheeks hurt and eyes wrinkle and has you clapping like a seal in a circus and gives you hope.
Yes there are hard times, yes life comes with its sorrow, but there comes a point where you realize you cannot always change a circumstance and you move on. Don’t stay in the past when you have a whole future that’s up to you, waiting in front of you. Let God guide you to blessings.
I mean honestly, you’d think some people thrive upon pity for themselves and enjoy lacking hope. Don’t fall into that trap. What good comes from letting yourself stay in the mindset of life being a disappointment? Nothing. Even when horrible times happen, keep the faith, y’all, because we cannot return to the past, only step towards tomorrow.
I understand how sometimes the future seems bleak and invisible. This is where we begin to doubt. Not long ago I was filled with doubts because my mind couldn’t seem to make a decision that would be what “made sense” for my future in terms of career or college or basically all those “where am I going” questions. Last year I was working on a farm, I absolutely loved it. I helped with kids birthday parties and field trips and gave pony rides. Not to mention the farm was about 2 minutes from my home, hello saving gas money! However, I couldn’t stay there. I had to move forward, I needed more hours, and I needed to further my education or I needed a full time job so I could continue saving money. I had no idea what I was going to be doing, but I can look back now and realize there was no need for me to stress so much, leaving such an enjoyable job for me was not fun, however, God knew what he had in store for me would be even more fun. I am still on a journey, but I can rest knowing God has something in plan for all of us, why waste time being angry things aren’t going our way?
Do I wish I could have stayed at a more fun job than I am working at for the time being now? Yes, but what is best for me and down the road, is in God’s hands. I have faith.
I find it easier to relax in the moment and just giggle about the silliest of situations when I come out of hard situations always realizing that with faith, God is with me and helping me.
Take a moment and breathe and then laugh.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” Pslams 126:2 ESV
