Life has different seasons.
These past four months have been the busiest most uncertain season of my life. From my last post, you might recall that we were changing cities after only living in our house for about four months. I then proceeded to not blog for the following four months.
I am sad that I didn’t do a better job of recording things! However, life has been so hectic that I decided to wait until after storm to blog again. Here are a few updates that will be expanded on in the next few weeks:
- We sold our house after six days on the market, four viewings, and amazingly, four offers.
- We placed an offer on a new house in our new city a week after we sold our home.
- We moved out of our first home and into our second (much larger!) home the first week of April.
- We have been working endlessly on renovations throughout the house.
- I celebrated my 23rd birthday last week (I feel like I’ve aged a decade this last year though!)
- My love and I celebrated 1 year of marriage on May 23rd!
Though we are still in the midst of home renovations, adjusting to our new environment, and learning to deal with more business trips that keep us apart, we have really grown through these experiences- especially me! Nothing causes you to turn more to God than having EVERYTHING in life pretty much change over two months (though I may have struggled quite a bit on my own first, because #humannature).
The one thing that has really thrown me for a loop has been losing my routine. I’m a very type-A personality and usually thrive on structure and routine. HA. those two words could not be more polar opposite of what the past months have been. HOWEVER, I am determined to create a new routine for myself starting this week. Birthdays have a way of making you re-evaluate where you are at in life. I realized that with the goals I have set for myself this year, I need to kick my butt in gear and discipline myself into some structure. Daily devotions in Scripture, regular journaling, and creating a blogging schedule are all a part of this new routine. One of my future blog-posts planned is “How to Re-center Yourself”, so I won’t go into more specifics about this new resolve for my 23rd year now.
But I will say that I am back to blogging. I am getting back into a routine. I am seeing progress made on our house and am encouraged that this is just a season in our life. I don’t know what our new normal will look like, but I do know that God is working all things in our life for a reason and that I can completely trust His plan for me. And I am so thankful that at least our family room is finished so I can sit in here and blog and momentarily ignore the fact that everywhere else in my house is in disarray. For a season.
I would love to hear from you! What season of life are you going through right now? What is your best advice for getting through the tough seasons? Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today!
