I’ve seen this #BISsisterhood Link-Up for a few weeks but have never joined in but I’m starting today as we blog about LIFE.
Life is an interesting thing. It’s part of what we do every.single.day…until we die. Somedays life is good and other days life is bad. Sometimes life just SUCKS.
I remember the day back in February when I went to visit my dad at the cemetery after a lot of healing and a good 4 years and stopping in a little shop to buy some flowers and my mom talking to the lady and the lady was blunt (this was NYC) and said, “Life is just so unfair…it’s just not right!” Something about how she said that secretly made me feel better and was true.
I think if your life is good all the time it’s not necessarily a good thing. I think we need the ups and downs of life so that when good things do happen we can enjoy them for all they are worth. When my life is bad or just sucks I try to just take life one day at a time and get through it. But when good things happen I cherish them with all they are worth.
Two years ago this May my sister got engaged. I call that my breaking point. I’m probably the only person that cried and was sad and jealous for their own sisters wedding. I so wanted that to be me and not her. It was one of those, “I do all the right things why does my life suck so much moments?” I also was mad I didn’t get to see them get engaged on the cruise ship and his parents did.
I saw that as my “breaking point” as after that event I really started to evaluate my life. I decided if I really wanted to fall in love and get married I needed to be more pro-active in the way I live my life. I needed to stop feeling sorry for myself and just LIVE LIFE. I needed to stop overanalyzing everything (yeah I still do this but I think I’m a little bit better).
I can say that my life is very different today than it was on that sad May day two years ago. I’ve gone on some amazing adventures, met some awesome people, and dated some creeps (but that’s just part of the whole dating scene right?). I’ve also gone on some really fun dates as well.
Right now I have no idea where God is leading me in life and what the future holds but I’m happy to be living the life that God has told me to live and I’m having an awesome time doing it!
