Change remains a constant. It’s best we learn how to welcome it. I hope this inspires you as it inspired me! 🙂
Have you ever heard someone say “welcome” to change? I haven’t. In fact change is something that used to be my worst nightmare until I experienced it, and God faithfully altered my view of change. But that’s another story for another time.
I find it ironic that autumn is my favorite season, while I used to hate change. After all, autumn is basically the season when the most things change. Leaves fall, grass dies, chilly weather rolls in, school starts. Life shifts gears. Change is natural. It’s something God created beautifully. We should embrace it.
Some might say they wish summertime would last forever. I completely understand this. I’d thoroughly enjoy the school-less, beach-filled, relaxing, sunny season for days and days. But I would get tired of it eventually. I would probably get sunburn on top of my sunburn, feel extremely bored, and tell the Texas sun to stop frying me.

Thanks for sticking with me from the first letter, to the second, the third and now. I may be writing this to help you but it is helping me more. I think letting things out in the open helps. It makes us know we are not alone. I like listening to NF music because he says all the right things…the things I feel. In his words, ‘this is therapy for me’ 🙂
Depression and loneliness.
Sometimes I think it’s a cause and effect relationship, where depression causes loneliness or is it loneliness that causes depression? I don’t know anymore. Maybe it works both ways. Being lonely often gives room for the depression to invade completely. While being depressed also pretty much drives people away, leaving you lonely.
Isn’t that all the devil wants? To keep you so far from help and fill you with negative thoughts. Suffice it to say loneliness and depression go hand in hand.
Isn’t it funny how we fill our Instagram and Facebook feeds with pictures of our food or pets? We photograph and write about our lives for the sake of a like or follow. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. The truth is that we do like the attention (even I do). We like how social media…
Joy! That should be something really happy and exciting right? Something that makes you lift your hands in praise when things aren’t going well. When you’ve lost someone dear or a job you found security in. Joy! That makes you laugh when the economy is receding faster than your hairline when you’re aging. Joy! That makes you love those you know hate you. Joy! That makes your heart merry even when the night tarries. Joy!
I know you hurt right now and the last thing you want to hear is that you should stay strong or just shake it off. I know there’s nothing I can say to you that you don’t already know. The worst part is, I know you think no one else understands what you’re going through. But I do, because I’ve been there. Thanks for reading the first and second letters. Read the rest of this entry »
