It was this one person in my life that was always sad and I would always give ’em advice. For some reason, this one piece of advice sticks out in my mind a lot.
I said: Life gives you so much bullshit, you have to sort through everything and find the shiny thing that makes you happy.
It was something like that. I remember “sort through” and “find the shiny thing” lol.
But basically, I started using my own advice.
Sometimes you really have to S O R T through the let downs, heartbreaks, disappointments, guilt, loneliness, etc. & find something…anything that puts a smile on your face. Life is always in a pile. Life will always make you sort through it, but never let life pile up on YOU. Nothing is worse than being buried by your problems. This is my last post for the day and I just wanted to leave yall with Romans 8:18 (my favorite):
“FOR I RECKON THAT THE SUFFERINGS OF THIS PRESENT TIME ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE COMPARED WITH THE GLORY WHICH SHALL BE REVEALED IN US.”
In other words, one day you’ll be able to stop fighting. One day you’ll find that shiny thing & the happiness it brings you will outweigh the sadness you fought through.
