Hey You! (yea, you 20-something!)
Can we get real with each other today? I want to talk about happiness and why it doesn’t always seem to show through in our lives each and every day.
Have you ever gotten stuck behind one of those loud, gross, super slow dump trucks when you are trying to get somewhere fast? Um, annoying, right? It’s even more annoying when everyone behind you is slipping past the truck so fast you don’t even have a chance to squeeze in line with them. Ugh.
Sometimes I feel like life can be just like being behind the slowest dump truck ever. We are all trying to reach certain goals or life milestones and it never fails, something gets in our way or steals our happiness. This slows us down and its just plain frustrating. That might look like a crappy job or maybe a bad habit.
Have you ever wondered if that bump in the road was all in God’s grand plan? That it was supposed to be apart of the adventure? A teaching moment? A sign to actually slow down?
Let me reassure you are not alone in those moments of being stuck and feeling unhappy. We are all dealing with something, but you know what? There’s hope. God promises to pull us through to the end.
Over the last few weeks I’ve had my fair share of “blah” moments. Its normal to go through those seasons, but it’s also important to identify why you are walking down that path and how to work yourself out of the rut. So, I’ve done some soul searching to identify some ways to keep our spirits up in those times when we are in that weird unhappy, blah mood. (thank goodness, there’s hope) Here are 6 habits we can take on to be happier.
