Stuck In Life :(

faith, life, brittanyBrittany GrahamComment

If part of life is feeling stuck then I’m doing a pretty good job at life right now because all I feel lately is exactly that, stuck. Recently I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost control of the happiness in my life. I feel like everything that I want for my life in the future I no longer am capable of achieving due to circumstances beyond my control. This is honestly probably THEworst feeling in the world as a young, passionate, driven, independent person. Having goals and feeling like that they are out of reach and there is absolutely nothing you can do about them. People always assume I’m always happy and positive but you got me I’m human, and just like anyone else I too have those very weak moments. And this just so happens to be one of them.

I’m struggling lately to figure out what’s a person to do when you feel so stuck that your own happiness and future is no longer in your hands? First plan, sit, be sad, and stay stuck. Very, very unsuccessful this past week. Next plan? Pray, pray and give it to god. The past two days I constantly have caught myself all day long in deep conversations with God. Praying for guidance, asking for strength, peace, and patience. It’s silly of me to think I can be in control because ultimately, he his. I have to put all of my faith in God and his plan for my life. I have to continue to believe that he is in control and know that he did not put me here to fail or be unhappy.

So instead of dwelling on my problems, for now I will embrace them and know that in time God will show me the way. None of us should ever feel stuck about life and the difficult situations that come our way.  I know that what I'm going through is something that won't change over night, but everyday we wake up and have a choice. So every morning as I'm blessed to see another day, I will choose to be happy. I can easily doing that knowing that by giving my problems to God he will work everything out for me. Life is too short, embrace the struggle, have faith, and choose happiness.
