Real Life

posted on: Wednesday, August 10, 2016


I’m going to be honest, its been a tough week for me. Looking for a job is rough and at times so overwhelming and discouraging. I’ve had to go for daily walks to clear my head and get out of this funk I’m in and yet, each day, I find myself right back in it. I know this isn’t fun talk, but it’s real life at the moment. I’m so happy to be here in this amazing city and I know it’s where we’re supposed to be right now, but I need to provide and I’m just hoping the right opportunity comes along soon. I’m just in a weird place at the moment, but I know and trust that there’s a reason for it and maybe it’s that I just really need to learn to find my joy in spite of tough circumstances. It’s not an easy thing to do and some days are tougher than others, but it’s definitely been on my heart lately that I need to find and fight for my joy no matter what’s happening around me.

Life has been an emotional roller coaster these last few years and, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some solid ground. It’s so much easier to be and feel negative, instead of finding the positive around you, the beauty and the GOOD stuff. I believe it starts with gratitude, so I’m trying to be thankful for everything that IS good, even when it feels like what’s going wrong is so much bigger. It’s not, there’s definitely more good stuff, we just have to find it and recognize it.

That’s what I’m working on these days, finding my joy (and a job). How about you?
