it is well with my soul

January 22, 2006

I think that it’s important to take note of the different emotional phases we go through. This week was not one of the better weeks I’ve had, but now, it’s the end of the week/beginning of next week and I feel good. I feel happy and peaceful and I like that.

Some people may view the fact that everything has to end as a bad thing, but to me it’s one of the beauties of life. Yes, this does mean that good things have to end, but it also gives hope in the ‘slough of despond’ times. Whenever I’m on a flight where the passengers are angry, I feel sick, the weather is rotten, we’re delayed.. whatever the situation, it’s really nice to be able to say, yes, like everything else in life, this flight must come to an end as well. We have to land eventually. Or, I have to feel better eventually. I can’t imagine ever feeling so sad with my life that I would give up hope that the bad times would end and it would get better. I was thinking yesterday how when it rains it pours. I went through a lot this week, not only with my bag being stolen, dealing with the loss, recovering what I could, letting go of what I couldnt’, but some other personal stuff I was dealing with. But now, I’ve survived, just like always, and I’m going to be fine.

The rain is falling outside and it sounds beautiful. I’m turning 25 in 2 days and I’m excited. Some people worry about turning 25 because they feel they’re getting old, but I feel like I’m really starting to get to the good part of life. I can now do everything any other adult can do, except get the senior citizen’s discount on Wednesday (I’m not ready for that one). I could do everything before but I’m just talking about insurance going down and being able to rent cars without paying extra. I’m excited that God has allowed me so many wonderful years. I have great friends and a wonderful family and the future is bright.
