Focusing on Blessings

“I believe I am exactly where I am supposed to be in this point in my life,” I said to an old friend that I recently reconnected with. I used to dwell on the What-might-have-beens, if only I wasn’t too afraid. I used to compare myself to others (still do, at times) and feel as though I was behind in life because I wasn’t exactly where other people, my age, or younger were at in their lives.

Part of improving my mental health is to let go. I am trusting my journey in the hands of God. Even if you aren’t a religious person, I hope you can trust in letting go of complete control. I am sorry if you don’t believe that there is some kind of higher power watching over you, and guiding you in your journey. It is such a blessing to have that feeling that you are not alone, and you do not have to carry that burden.

This doesn’t mean that you let go of all responsibility for your actions. I think there are lessons in your path. I almost got stuck in a house that had more trouble than what it was worth; and I wondered why the process was allowed to get as far as it did–to the point of even losing a significant amount of money–but I a reminded that maybe it had to get that for for me to be reminded to be patient.

And now there are more opportunities happening. And now I am happier about just letting things go that are out of my control. I am also being reminded of how I should appreciate what I have.

Everything truly is in God’s hands. He shows us the exact path we should be following, even if it is simply because it will be a lesson learned.

I am praying that things work out the way they are supposed to, and that I continue to be reminded of the blessings that I have right now.

I must admit, I am slacking in all other wellness goals at the moment because I am so focused on this goal; my dream home.

But, I am still saving money with my money saving challenges. I am still working on my reading challenge; I am on book #5 of the year–well on my way to surpassing the number of books I’ve read in 2020.

Sometimes, it is okay to focus on one goal at a time.
