What do you do when you don’t know what to do? I believe everyone has reached this point at some point or another in their life. What do you do when it seems like you can’t go anymore? What do you do when it seems like every time you take a step forward, you end up taking two steps back? What do you do when you finally decide to take a chance and open your heart up for someone only for them to walk away? How can you carry on when you have a heart so big and so much love to give? What do you do when you begin to question yourself on every decision you have made so far? What do you do when you don’t know if you are on the right track? What if you feel stuck and wonder if maybe you should have taken a job instead of going to graduate school? What do you do when all you want is to make sure that your kid is happy and has more and better opportunities than you do? What if you don’t know if you are doing anything right? I hate it when life gets hard and the days come when you just don’t understand. What if you know what you want in life but you don’t know which step to take to get there? What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
You shed a few tears. And then you probably shed quite a few more. You slowly begin to pick up the pieces and you hit your knees hard. You pray. You pray hard and you pray daily. You have faith that the Lord has an amazing plan for you. You trust in Him and the process no matter how hard or how much you may not understand. You pick up those pieces and you begin each day with a smile. You laugh. You laugh hard and you laugh often. You grab a good book and dive in to clear your head. You reach out to the people who mean the most to you. You talk to that best friend at 3 o’clock in the morning because they know you need them. You spend time with the one who believes in you the most, who sees more potential in you than you could ever know. You reach out to the one who lives in another state to have them remind you that life is hard and everyone struggles, but it is about owning that struggle. You even reach out to the ones who tell you what you need to hear, even though it may not be something that you WANT to hear. You be yourself because you are special just the way you are. You continue to love because that is who you are. You continue to push forward because that is what you know how to do. You keep going and one day, one special day, you will be amazed at how much you really have accomplished.
As always spread some love, the world could always use a little more love.
