hard seasons

Not all of us have more options and choices in life.

Sometimes you need to pick up messy things and fix them on your own, sometimes you need to work in the places that you don't like, sometimes you need to take up courses that you don't want, and that's the reality of living underprivileged. It always costs you something and it always leads you to do hard things. And sometimes when you reach rock bottom, you need to start from scratch on your own while finding the right path at the same time. It's messy, hard, and disheartening. But despite those things, it always teaches you valuable lessons in life. It always leads you to higher ground and molds your character to become a better person. Someday you will be grateful that life is tough because it makes you more courageous.

Perhaps your path is harder because your calling is higher. Perhaps you need to be familiarize with pain and hardships so you'll appreciate happiness and success better. One day you'll be glad not because you're capable of doing it on your own but because His grace strengthen you and carries you every time you can't walk through life anymore. As long as you're living you are still winning.

One day it will makes sense too, keep persevering!

 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
