messy & sweet

i would have to say that between the hard times, this year has been mostly sweet. maybe not going all the way to happy, but sweet. sweet like learning more about my younger siblings, sweet like seeing the world around me with new eyes, the glorious state of it. sweet like learning more about myself, about why i love what i love, and why it's important to me.

it's always weird finding yourself after you've changed, and i'm in that transition mode. that adjusting mode. learning more about the people close to me, what i love, my hobbies, God's creation, myself. it's a tough call sometimes to attempt to put on a good face to get out of the house and continue with life when i'm hurting so badly. then looking around me, at this beautiful world i live in, at these people who aren't all that different. 

we all have problems, and they all seem really huge at the time, but when you look back, what you remember wont be the nights spent crying in your bed wondering why this has to happen to you. you will not forget that period in your life, but it was put there for a reason. God always has a bigger purpose for your life, and no matter what, He knows what is best. lately i've been giving things to him. sometimes small things like thoughts in my head, or big things like my future. He knows what's best for me, and i don't want to get in His way.

i guess the real point of this post, is that when you look back, you don't want it to seem like a dark tangled mess, even if it really was. try, for yourself most of all, to add something to your life as it is right now. yes, everyone has messy seasons, but that's just how life is. try not to dwell on them so much. that's not the right way to go about every moment of every day. add something, darling. 
maybe it won't be happy, but it can still be lovely.

  2. I know exactly what you mean, I've definitely learned a lot about myself this year, and changed a fair amount as well. It's been an interesting year, but a very enjoyable one.
    Love your photography as always!

    1. yes, you're never alone. others have the same problems, feelings, and thoughts. God is always bigger than all of them, and He's on your side.

      thank you!
