Whatever season of life that you are in, whether you are in a happy, fruitful season or a sad, devastating dry season... it's OK. Your life is more than OK, just the way it is.
Right now, I am absolutely the happiest I've ever been in my life.
That's right, I said it! I AM HAPPY!
Some people don't like to tell others that they are happy because...
#1. Some people are just haters. They are miserable, so they want you to be miserable as well. Misery loves company.
#2. Some people don't want to seem like they are bragging about their happiness. They want to downplay how happy they are or not talk about it at all.
#3. Some people think, "Well life is great now, so there must be something bad coming soon..." My response to that comes in the words of Will Smith,
"When there is no problem, your mind makes one so it has something to do."
Mentally, I went through all three phases. Now, I have decided to tell you I'm happy because it's OK to be happy! And guess what??? It's OK to be sad as well.
ENJOY THE RIDE!!!

No matter what season of life you are in, whether happy, sad or bored.
You are there for a reason. God makes no mistakes.
Yes, I am the happiest I have been in my whole life, but just over a year ago, I was in one of the saddest seasons of my life.
I went into a deep depression. I was single after the ending of my 9 year relationship. I was broke and unemployed and top it all off, my dad become extremely ill.
I was so lost, sad and extremely broken. But I would not change a thing because I learned so much about myself.
I became a stronger, more resilient person. I learned to be happy with very little.
I am who I am today because of every, single, thing that I've gone through.
If you are going through a sad season in life, YOU can get through it!
After the season is over, YOU can become a stronger person as well.
Look at your life, figure out what you want and just do it.
If you're in a sad season of life right now, decide to do one thing each day that will make your life better. When I was depressed, I choose to exercise everyday. It helped to get me out of bed and it added some structure and discipline to my life. It also gave me something to look forward to each day, instead of drowning in my sorrows. Also, try to find one thing that you are grateful for everyday. The attitude of gratitude will give you the energy you need to receive more positive things in your life.
If you're in a happy season of life right now, ENJOY IT! Don't allow others to make you feel bad for being happy. Having joy is a gift from God. Being in a state of bliss is beautiful.
Just remember that the lows of life will still happen.
If you are bored... well... spice it up. Do something different. Be creative. Do something that scares you. Then when you are old, you can tell your grandkids about it :)
God knew every single thing that would happen to you. Everything happens for a reason. You are purposely made. So whatever season of life you are in,
And you will get through it.
