Its just temporary

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning light-Psalm 30:5 

Recently, I spoke with someone whose family member was going through recovery. I was consoling the individual, and I looked at them and said, it’s just temporary. Recovery is just a process, and its rough in the beginning, but it will get better.

My nephew is doing group project at school and the kids are not participating. He’s frustrated, I told him, this situation is just temporary and after this project, it’s a strong possibility that you won’t have to deal with these kids anymore. Middle school only last for 3 years, and that’s it. You’ll probably forget about these kids when you’re an adult.

I feel like we tend to make temporary situations permanent. Oftentimes, we are given lessons and we drag them on longer than they are supposed to be. I believe that if we look at things as if there temporary, then we won’t make a big deal out of the situation.

We dwell on things far too long. Life is just a journey. Life doesn’t come with a time frame, but we tend to live like it does. If we just focus on the here and now, then we won’t be so frustrated about our circumstances, because everything really is temporary.

I believe in living your best life, we only get one life and we should just enjoy the life that we have. The fact that we are living is a miracle. Its a blessing, and we shouldn’t be so stressed out over temporary things, and we shouldn’t make temporary decisions permanent. Whatever happens, its okay to bounce back.
