A few weeks ago I wrote a post on Facebook expressing that though your life may not be where you want it to be, it is OK. Things don't always go as planned, but I've come to learn that the hiccups we experience in life are actually more common than we perceive them to be. We spend our time living our real lives in secrecy and portraying an image for the general public. Social media can make everyone's lives seem so perfect, and your own life feel so empty. I was going through a tough time in life and felt like my life really wasn't worth much at all. On the surface I had a college degree, purchased a home and had a steady career. On the inside I would come home to an empty house because I'm STILL single, felt the connections with those I was once really close to was slipping away, gaining weight due to stress from one of the toughest times in my career and the list goes on. I would peruse the pages of Facebook, pictures on Instagram and videos on Snapchat and it further implanted the idea in my mind that everyone else's lives were so amazing compared to my insignificant life. Then God started to reveal some situations that "seemed" perfect on the surface, but had much deeper issues going on. At first I was confused. How could things like this be happening to people who for years have had it all together, or at least looked like they did? I realized everyone has a story. No story is without its adversity. God has touched me in a number of ways through revealing true stories about people, messages at church and personal study in the Word. A weight has been lifted, and though my life isn't where I want it to be, I'm OK with that. In the mean time I'm going to live my life out loud and make the most of the life I've been given. I hope that you enjoy joining me on this journey.
