One of those days…

Y’all, you know those days where you feel good, you’re looking cute, you’re cowlick didn’t do that weird thing it does all the time right in the front of your head (can I get a witness), it’s beautiful outside, just a great day in general. Then……BAM! You see/hear/read something that completely knocks you off your rocker. Suddenly, you don’t think that outfit looks as good on you as it did in the mirror this morning. This hair, ugh, has an evil mind of its own all of a sudden. The beautiful day just loses its luster and you want to get in your car, drive back home, and hide under the covers where it doesn’t matter that bed head makes your hair look like you have a nest of baby birds on your head. (Can you tell my hair and I have a serious love/hate going on?)

The cause for this sudden change varies from person to person, and if you’re like me, day-to-day. All self-confidence goes out the window when you see that adorable family with the blonde hair blue-eyed baby that could pass for yours, but isn’t, because for some reason your body does not want to complete the normal functions of a woman and reproduce. That pregnancy announcement on Facebook from someone who “wasn’t even trying” when you have done everything imaginable for years to get pregnant and cannot. When you are trying to lose weight and get fit and then see that gorgeous woman and automatically feel like a troll. The guy and girl on a date that instantly makes you question why you haven’t found someone yet because you are a good person with lots of love to give. Maybe you have lost a child and something about this certain little one at the store brings back memories or makes you wonder what it would be like to have your own baby with you shopping.

These days happen to all of us. The reasons are our own and others may not understand why certain things upset you out of nowhere or why you haven’t been to a baby shower in almost three years. Why you cry at every wedding because you want so badly to find your own soul mate. I just want to tell you that its OK to not be OK, sometimes. Life is hard, and there are plenty of obstacles to step over, climb up, or even run through. Just know that you can do it. You can get through that moment that causes you to stop breathing for a second. You are woman enough to be a mother. You look adorable in that outfit, even though you are still not at your goal weight. There is nothing wrong with you as a person, and the fact that you are single later in life than you wanted to be just means God is taking His sweet time preparing that man for you and your love.

Take a minute, hour, day and let yourself get those feelings out. There is no shame in that. The only shame in having those feelings is when you live in them. Take some time, work through it, then pack up and move on. The day goes on. Life goes on. God is not done with you yet, and His timing and plan are worth waiting for. I hope those days for you are few and far between, and know that even in those unexpected moments, you are never alone. The Bible says in Jeremiah, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.” He knows the plans. It’s not a minute to minute decision making process on His part. He KNOWS and they are plans to prosper you, not harm you. They are plans to give you hope!! Hold on to that hope in Him and His plans for your future. Also, as hard as it is, we have to try not to get in the way of those plans. We can mess them up in our desperation and times of turmoil in our hearts and minds. Just remember, He has your future laid out, and It. Is. Perfect. He does not make mistakes. Allow yourself to relax and rest in that hope and enjoy the ride!

Love and Prayers,

Cody †♥
