A Better Tomorrow

I was looking back at some old notes of mine I had written about 4 years ago during a not-so-pleasant moments of life, and I couldn’t help but laugh and smile. Back then, however, I can assure you there was nothing remotely funny or a crack of smile present when I was going through said moments. Now, I read these notes and I can’t even recall the exact events. Today, I look back and those struggles and tough times no longer occupy a space and are dwarf in the grand scheme of things.

The joy of today has wiped away the tears of yesterday.

If you are reading this and hanging on to a flimsy thin thread of hope thinking and questioning will it ever get better? The answer is a resounding YES. Things will get better. Things are getting better though it may not feel like it, but the good news is that our feelings were never a good marker of reality. Persevere just a little more. Hold on tightly the thread of hope.

Now, you may be wondering who is these stranger on WordPress telling me “things will get better” when they don’t even know me or what I am going through? Yea, I get it. I have been there too—-when people will say things like “you will be fine” or “all will be well.” But because I was so consumed by the current circumstances of disappointments, rejections, no-show, hardship, & etc I found it hard to believe or accept their words. Nonetheless, I persevered and held on to my faith in God. Years later, things in fact has gotten better and all is indeed well.

I say this—-from a place of care and lived experience—things will get better. It will. But, you mustn’t give up or give in. Half the battle is all mindset, if you believe you can, you will. The most important person that must believe is YOU. Even if your loved ones and strangers like myself believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself then it’s hard to take the next step forward in the midst of challenges and set-backs.

So, STOP reading for a second and say to self boldly:

I believe I can

I know I can

I am more than capable to achieve

I am more than able to obtain

Everything that I want to do

And everything that I want to get

A day will come when you too will look back at your struggles and laugh and smile about it. A day when your current struggles will no longer be the dictator of your happiness but a source of laughter as you reminisce. A day when your current struggles has shrunk in size and no longer play the lead role in your life. A day when your struggles are now a source of inspiration and not a source of sorrow, sadness, and sleepless night. The day will come.

You got this. You can do it. Keep planting and very soon you will pluck what you’ve planted [Eccs. 3:2].

A better tomorrow awaits you.

He has made everything beautiful in His time.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
