Over the past two months, I’ve felt so many emotions, such as defeat and hurt. So I ran here to vent. This mini mid-life crisis, which happened over the holidays, was a not joyous occasion. I cried countless times, screamed, wanted to give up and completely shut myself out from the world. I wanted to comprehend and solve the situation immediately; it only made matters worse. Soon I realized enough is enough after continuous prayer and consistent encouragement from family and friends.
I learned to be okay with it, but ultimately realizing I’m going through something - a fire (metaphor for: test, storm, struggle.) The fire throws negative problems/issues back-to-back without warning to deter your plans. It drains the individuals from all aspects of life, while making them want to give up. The fire, also, tries teaching lesson(s) missed from past experiences. But this post isn't about giving up; it's about pushing through to get through. It’s also about using those flames to dig deep to find your true self and make room for new - new experiences and opportunities.
In order to do that, I started making self changes. I found three ways to push through and get my life together.
Somehow I found restoration, peace and joy, and I thank God for it. No matter the situation, problem, or trial, push through the problem and become your best self, or an even greater version of yourself. Storms and fires are bound to happen, but you can’t (shouldn’t) look like what you’ve been through. Come out unapologetically unbothered and keep reaching for your dreams. Never let your emotions solely dictate your actions - it takes away your power, energy, and Queen status.
I’m ready for change in all aspects of life - my environment, employment, lifestyle, and hair. Realizing this power, I am ready to conquer it all. Yes, it’s a little scary, but is necessary - VERY necessary. With prayer and guidance, I will come out victorious.
"Let it shape you, but never change you!"
