The Path of Life
It’s a little after 1am and I can’t help but to lay in bed and reflect. When you’re young, you think you have your whole life as an adult planned. You look forward to getting older because when you’re young, being an adult seems like the answer to all of your problems. By 25, I thought I would be married and in my dream career. I thought I’d have all of the money in the world and that everything around me would be perfect. I thought it would get easier with age, but boy was I wrong. The lessons never stop, the problems don’t always go away, and the unexpected always occurs.
What I’ve learned through out these 26 years on this earth is that life is full of twists and turns. God has a plan for each of us. Sometimes we don’t always catch on to what our purpose is as quickly as others do and that’s okay. If we all had the perfect life, would we be able to grow and learn without ever going through a rough patch?
I promise, it will be alright
I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to not be perfect. It’s okay to not be where you thought you would be when you reached a certain age and it’s okay to not know your purpose in life yet. I’m still learning myself. I’m still growing as a woman, but I’ve learned to be content with this life that I’m living because God has blessed me with a roof over my head, food on my table and a job that keeps the lights on.
Don’t get so caught up with what the next person is doing because 9/10 their life isn’t perfect either. Even though it seems like it, I promise you, it’s not. Life is a journey filled with the unexpected, but don’t ever let that stop you from being great. Here’s to discovering your purpose and accepting all that’s ahead to come.
-Until next time, continue to sparkle!
