As October draws to a close, we begin to feel the fall air that does it’s best to sneak in as the sun sets. My spirits lift with the cool evening air and I wonder what the holidays will bring. Someone asked me the other day, “how are you going to get through the holiday’s alone?” I looked at them and said, “Alone? I’m not alone.” I know what she meant and I can’t say a feeling of loneliness won’t creep in now and then but I won’t feel alone. I have great friends and an awesome family that I will surround myself with.
Change is inevitable like the seasons. I knew mine would be taking a turn and it has. As the season changes to fall so is my life; one day at a time. God won’t put anything in front of me that I cannot handle. So there is nothing to worry about.
If you have read my blogs over the past months you have seen me grow through my hurt and pain. In sharing that with you, I know I have helped some of you through your life situations and I thank you for your private and public comments. As I’ve said before, life can deal us some tricky hands. How we react and deal with them will determine the length of our stay in hell. (if you know what I mean.)
As you make your way through your life situation, you begin to see things more clearly and understand why things happened, because you are on the outside now looking in. It is hard to make any sense out of our situation when we are so deep inside. We may not be quite where we want to be yet, but we are on our way. You can start to allow yourself to meet new people, open your heart to new possibilities, or even love again.
I began writing my life story 8 months ago as part of my healing. It has allowed me to see who I was, where I came from, and to change the patterns in my life. My book may be lengthy, but the best chapters have yet to be written. I hope that is true for you too:)
Smile and be happy! Is your season about to change?
