When You’re Going Through It

We go through seasons in life. A season of settling into a new place. A season spent working on or planning a major life event. A season of happiness or sadness.

Sometimes these seasons last for months or even years. Sometimes they last only a week or two, but it’s a week or two of just going through it. Maybe you’re so tired you can’t imagine what it felt like to be well rested. Maybe your family is struggling and you don’t know how to help them. Or you’re dealing with health issues that cause you to feel isolated and alone. Maybe it’s just been a crappy week at work.

I just want to say.

It’s okay.

It’s a season.

It will pass.


I say this to reassure myself as much as I do to reassure you. When you’re dealing with something that’s difficult, isolating or just monotonous, it can be difficult to see the light. Take a moment to remind yourself that this is only a season. It will come to an end.

And if you’re in a happy season, take a moment to relish it, remember it, and be thankful. Write these moments down. Make a video. Instagram it! Recalling these moments in times of struggle or sadness can bring a smile to your face and a warm reminder that things are going to be okay.

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” ― Albert Camus
