Don't Ever Give Up

Pin It Now! I like to consider myself an optimist... but sometimes life is just hard. Sometimes, it's easier to mope for a while and wish things turned out differently. Sometimes, it's easier to wish things went your way. We all have things in life that make us feel defeated and upset.

Sometimes we just wish that life would deal us a better hand. We think that we'd be happier if things were different.
For me, it's always been the same battle.
I've always felt self-conscious about love. Why hasn't anyone come along? Am I too picky? Am I holding out for something that doesn't exist? Am I just delusional?
While I know the answers to all these questions, and get frustrated that I ever let myself think this way, these thoughts still drive me crazy. I'm a great, genuine, happy, girl.

I just have to be patient.
Isn't that the test? Being patient when so many other people seem to be so happy and in love? Being surrounded by couples and serious relationships- it's hard. It's emotionally draining.

So here's my attempt at positivity. It will happen for me. I know it's part of God's plan—he wants more than anything for me to share my life with someone. I just have to let go and trust him. I have to know that everything happens for a reason—and when I get there, it'll mean so much more.

I encourage you to trust life. God has a plan. Relax, enjoy the ride, smile, laugh and appreciate all that you do have. You'd be surprised what can come along when you least expect it. :)

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us."
Ephesians 3:20

PS- Coming Soon! MY VERY OWN FULL-LENGTH MAGAZINE! :) Written, laid-out and published all with the blog as inspiration.



  1. Lovely post. I know the feeling. It took me until age 31 to find my wife. And yes, it happened when least expected.

    One thing I've learned, had I not had those years when I was an independent bachelor I would not have the skill to be a husband today.

    Know thyself....or something like that :)
