LIFE MOVES ON

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Growing up...isn't always fun.
It's difficult at times,stressful..sometimes indescribably unfair!
But you can't stop it from happening..sometimes you just have to take a really terrible year and take out the good parts and be happy with them!
You can't go back in time, can't go back to when things were easier,simpler..we aren't 2 yrs old, not a teenager when the hardest thing was SATs sr year, not even the fun times at college.
We take those moments we look back we smile, but if we try to go back..we stop ourselves from growing into who we're supposed to become.
No being an adult is not what I expected...but trade the happiest moments I did have since I turned 18...since 5 yrs ago..last year. Wouldn't trade them for anything they made me who I am.
Hope God continues to help me become a better woman and be filled w grace and love and overcome the hardest of times. feeling thoughtful.

    Isn't it funny that when we were much younger we couldn't wait to grow up and once we got to the adult stage wished we were still younger.

    So true, you can't go back, you can only move forward. Thanks for this post. I also need to remind myself to just remember the happy times, and that everything over the past 5 years made me who I am today.

    Good thoughts there. We take the good with the bad and the icky, then sort through the mess to come up with memories. emoticon

    When I read your blog, I immediately thought of the John Mayer song "No Such Thing". And one of the lines I have always liked the best is "I am invincible...as long as I'm alive".

The 20's are a time for growing, learning and experiencing all of the new, the scary and the unknown that is waiting out there for you. It is a time that can be devastatingly hurtful (you thought you left that behind in high school, right?) and it is a time when you come to the realization that there really truly is no life-plan that doesn't have many detours and hills and valley.

I've been living through my children's 20's for the past several years and I can honestly say I would never go back there. At the same time, you need to know that no matter what you are facing right now, YOU ARE INVINCIBLE. No one and nothing can defeat you unless YOU allow it to happen.

    No matter how bad the bad times were, it seems those memories fade with time and the happy times remain.

    You are right, it does stink being and adult at times. I have been laid off a year and only recently did I find a job. I hate it and can barely tolerate it. The bad times make me realize how wonderful the good times can be. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, I guess. Keep up the fight.

    Our lives were never meant to be perfect. The things we go through and how we adapt and change are the things that make us wiser and more able to meet the challenges of future days. Sometimes we can't plan ahead very far and have to take each day and get through it the best we can praying that God will supp;y our need.

    The truth is that as we age, those "bad" years don't seem as bad as they were. Our perspective changes. emoticon

    Life is unfair to everyone. We have to look for the best in everything. I like this quote.

"All my life I never understood why things were so unfair...but these difficulties that arise in each of our lives are just battle wounds that will eventually heal and show that the outcome was great and we were victorious."
