Good Things Are On Their Way!

:

There are some times when you feel good. When you feel like you’re on the right path. Even when you know that not everything is in place, even when you feel that there’s something missing, you know that you’re going in the right direction and you’re doing something right for yourself.

That feeling is amazing.

What seems like so long ago, and then just yesterday at the same time, I was aching for something and I had no idea what it was. I felt trapped, caged. Freedom seemed so elusive no matter what I did.

There are some times when you feel good. When you feel like you’re on the right path. Even when you know that not everything is in place, even when you feel that there’s something missing, you know that you’re going in the right direction and you’re doing something right for yourself.

That feeling is amazing.

What seems like so long ago, and then just yesterday at the same time, I was aching for something and I had no idea what it was. I felt trapped, caged. Freedom seemed so elusive no matter what I did.

I was praying all the time for something to happen, not knowing what it was that I wanted specifically. I tried so many different things, but nothing felt right. Nothing turned out right. I believe now that it was mostly because I didn’t know or trust myself entirely. I had no confidence in my dreams and the goals I wanted to reach. And I had no trust in God’s timing. I was so impatient that I refused to wait and listen to directions and instead frantically tried to find my own way…only managing to get myself more and more lost.

When I reached one dead end after another I had the choice of giving up or admitting my faults, swallowing my pride, and asking for direction. The direction given was to trust myself, have faith and confidence in my dreams, and learn how to be strong enough to follow after them and accept the hardships and rewards with the same amount of gratitude.

I’ve finally reached a place in my life where I feel like anything is within my reach. I’ve also realized that it takes devotion, passion, strength, and patience to achieve goals. There can not be one of those things missing. Accepting that it won’t be easy and that hard work is necessary is the first step to the happiness I’m searching for.

Though things are far from perfect, it feels wonderful… to know that anything is possible, to know that I’m going in a good direction, that I’m on a good path.

I’m grateful to my family and friends for supporting me and loving me through everything. No matter where I’ve been in my life you were there to hold me up, to encourage me, and cheer me on. You continue to do that, giving me strength daily to live life fully and discover more potential within myself to reach even greater heights.

Though I am far away from so many of you, I am thinking of you, appreciating you, and loving you as much as ever. Next time we talk, I hope you can feel proud that you are some of the reason that I am the person I am today, learning how to be a better person tomorrow.

It was a tough week, but I made it through, and better times are ahead!

Everyone keep a smile on. Keep your spirits up.

Good things are on their way.

Until next time,
