What I’m Learning Right Now

Do you ever have one of those seasonsΒ where you just know the Lord is teaching you a lesson? In college I often found myself growing anxious, but luckily I hadn’t struggled with that in years. Until recently. Right now, the Lord is teaching me to let go of my anxiety. And if I’m being honest, I’m not 100% certain what the main cause of my anxiety is at the moment. And I think that almost makes it worse- the whole ‘not being able to pinpoint it’ aspect.

But in this struggle I’m reminded that it’s okay to not be okay. It’s just not okay to stay there. Sometimes we need these seasons in life to redirect our focus & to help us grow. I needed the reminder at this point in my life to just let go. It’s time for me to stop focusing on what I can/can’t do and start focusing on what He can do.

Are you in one of those seasons right now?
Or have you ever been there?
What are some lessons you are learning?

    These shots are absolutely gorgeous. And girl, I feel that way ALL the time!! Especially this year! Taking long breaks keeps me sane when I am getting super stressed.

    This is such a nice post. When my grandmother passed away in April, she left me her beautiful 18K gold crucifix (and her collection of pearls!!!). I wear the crucifix everyday and this may seem silly, but I now feel “clearer and lighter”. In her passing, she taught me to really live life. To get “rid of the noise”. I’m now focused. I feel I really know what I want to do now. I stopped hanging around with people who are toxic. I started doing things I love again like hanging with my cousins, riding my bike, gardening and just loving life. Thanks for reaffirming my feelings!!

    I always love reading your posts, they are so insightful and thoughtful! You’re so right, especially with blogging we need to worry about things we can control.

    I come across those seasons from time to time, when I try to find a meaning for everything and a path to follow! But these times are just making us stronger, so I try to direct my concerns constructively and take something good out of the whole experience.
