Life is very unpredictable & it can bring you through seasons you wouldn’t wish on anyone else. The truth is, everyone is going through their issues & dealing with their baggage. It can be overwhelming when you have a lot of ambition & a lot of goals when you are forced to take a break or a step back.
In life there will always be struggle & it will come when you least expect it. The point of any obstacle is to throw you off balance, to catch you off guard & distract you. In the moment of your hardships it will be hard to redirect your vision from the negatives & realign your focus on the things that matter the most. I think that being at your lowest is often more of a blessing than people think. I know that I’ve become a different person after each major setback, & it’s all for the better because to learn, you must go through things that make you want to quit.
I have decided I want to be better than the girl I was yesterday, every single day. I want to make it a goal to do something to outdo myself every single day. I am going to make a list of small ways I can become a better version of myself, & if you’re reading this, I think you should do that too, because there is always room to grow. I for one know I am not perfect & this is not about chasing perfection, it’s about making the effort to grow & having the ability to self reflect.
This year has been a giant question mark & if anything, I think it’s served the purpose of showing us that life is too short, situations are temporary, & there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel.
I was talking to someone & they said “if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.” It can be hard for me to find peace in short quotes or sayings sometimes, just because I feel like I’ve almost seen it all, even though I haven’t, but hearing this felt different this time. Will you ever be given something you actually can't handle? No.
You have to take a step back & realize how far you’ve come rather than how far you have to go. I’ve said it before & I will say it again, it’s the journey, not the destination. The road to success is often a lonely one & as unfortunate as that may be, the people meant to walk your path will be right by your side, & those who aren’t will find their perfect way. So wherever you are in your journey, keep climbing, because eventually you will land where you are meant to be. <3
