Mrs. Brightside

I didn’t choose the thug life. The thug life chose me ūüôā

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven” – Ecclesiastes 3:1

I truly believe we live in different seasons. ¬†Sometimes, life is like springtime, full of excitement and promise, a time of rebirth and new beginnings. ¬† When life is like Summer, everything is at peace, comfortable and easy. ¬†Fall is a time of wisdom, fulfillment, and abundance. ¬†And then there’s winter. ¬†Winter is a time of suffering, a time of darkness. ¬†Winter is bleak and it sometimes seems as if there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Since July 23, I’ve been living in winter. ¬†I thought this was going to the be the year of CrossFit competitions and amazing PR’s. ¬†Instead, my car wreck put my life on hold. ¬†I allowed myself to become consumed with depression, frustration, and anxiety due to my physical pain. ¬†Now, I’ve decided it’s time to stop feeling sorry for myself.

My future and success depends on many things, but mostly they depend on me.  I have the responsibility to shape my life.  I am the person that pushes myself forward or holds myself back.  The power to succeed or fail is mine alone.

I’ve decided it’s time to go back to being Mrs. Brightside. ¬†I know God will be glorified through my trials so I’m going to thank Him. ¬†I’m optimistic about my recovery and excited because I know Spring is just around the¬†corner!

What season are you in?
