Have you ever wished for the seasons to change? One day you’re happy with the warm and sunny forecast and the next, you’re tired of the heat. You then find yourself wishing for fall to hurry up and get here. That kind of thinking is similar to the seasons in our lives. One day we’re happy with the way our lives are going. The next day we find ourselves in a tough situation and we start wishing and praying for a change. We’ve all been there and it’s natural. However I believe wherever we are in our lives, we are to live in that moment. There’s obviously a reason we are where we are at this time. I call this thinking Living in Your Season. This is something I’m working on and understanding more as the days go by.
I’m pretty open with what’s going on in my life here on the blog, but I don’t talk about everything. I do however want to share something that you don’t know. I’ve been going through a tough season for the past few months and only my family (really) knows and understands the depth of it all. While I’m not gravely ill, my health hasn’t been 100% for sometime now. Because of this, I’ve experienced an array of emotions – angry, sad, confused…just to name a few. I’ve watched the physical state of my body change and it hasn’t been pleasant. I’ve also watched my energy go from 10 to 0 and that has been the biggest downer for me. I’m usually an upbeat and energetic person. I have a pretty active lifestyle and I enjoy it. But nowadays my energy comes and goes so quickly. All this change is an unfortunate “female issue” (as they say) and to be frank, it sucks.
This season has been really hard, especially because I still have to go about my day to day life as if I’m “fine”. But recently, I’ve made the decision to live in this season. I’ve decided to take this time to devote myself to making a few necessary lifestyle changes. I pray daily and I always read some sort of devotional each morning, but I’m now taking the words and meditations to heart even more. I’m meditating on the words and repeating silent prayers throughout my day. I’ve gone from asking God, “why are you letting me go through this” to “what am I suppose to be learning from all this”. I’m opening myself up to receive whatever it is He’s trying to teach/tell me. I’m trusting that this season won’t last forever, and that I will come out on the other side even better. What have I learned so far?
1. This too shall pass.
2. Pay attention to your body and it’s changes; you know your body better than anyone else.
4. Be proactive about your health.
5. Periodic life AND body cleanses/detoxes are necessary in order to live a healthy lifestyle .
Have you ever been through a tough season in your life? How did you get through it? Let me know!
In doing all of this, I’m realizing that what I’m going through won’t last forever. As long as I continue to take care of myself, physically, mentally and spiritually, I will be able to make it through anything. Until next time, I pray that you all stay blessed and stay safe…XO!
