Zora Neal Hurtson once said, “there are years that ask questions and years that answer.”
If I wrote this blog to please other people I would type out rainbows and unicorns and sunshine, bragging about my University life, the fun parties, the new clothes, the cute boys, and the quiet life of not living in the city. Or I could be brutally honest and discuss late nights, early mornings, homesickness, missing my friends, temperatures well below 50 degrees in April, the terrible classes and even more terrible professors. But out of options A and B, I choose C. I will not write this blog to sugar coat anything and I will NOT write this blog to complain about my problems because in the grand scheme of life- the problems I have today, are just that… today’s problems. There are way to many things to be thankful for everyday to ever have a “bad day.”
Everything happens for a reason- a very overused but true cliché. Sometimes people pass away so you can learn how to appreciate the people you have, while you have them. Sometimes a relationship ends to teach you the difference between being in love with someone and loving the person you thought they were. Sometimes you lose friends to make room for new ones. Sometimes people won’t see your beauty as much as others do. Sometimes people will do everything in their power to bring you down, but it strengthens you to stand taller. Sometimes you won’t get a grade you expected but it is a reality check, meaning that not everything comes as expected. If life didn’t give us hardships, how would we recognize the blessings in our lives? Any question you ask, will be answered, but not always the way you expect it to.
So always remember,
your value doesn’t decrease on the inability of others to notice your worth.
