The best way to see rock bottom is there’s only one way to go from here. Up. Rock bottom can mean many different things for different people. For me it’s pretty much life. There’s only one way to go now and that’s up. I’m single, 28 years old (for a few more weeks), living back with my parents, getting my cosmetology career back up and running along with a few other side businesses, paying off debt from my early 20s and a failed business endeavor and getting my feet back on the ground.
In my original life plan I’d be married, own a home and probably have or be getting ready to have children. I know life doesn’t go the way we plan and I’m ok with that. I’ve had a life of ups and downs but never a real struggle as an adult. Fortunately I have a pretty positive outlook on life but here lately the high of big life change has worn off and I’m left with now what. Now it’s time to pick the pieces up and put them back together how God intended them to be in the first place. You guessed it. I’m sitting at my rock bottom.
Now is the chance I’ve been blessed with to do life the right way. I think a lot of times it’s how we look at our current situation that will determine how we will get through it. Don’t get me wrong I’ve moped the last few days about it. But at some point you have to pull yourself out of bed get showered and throw yourself back in the world. Because when you realize there’s only one way to go why procrastinate on that journey? It’s a new adventure that I guarantee is going to take you to a far better place than where you were. It’s a taller mountain with a bigger better view that you can’t even imagine.
So what are you waiting on? Heck what am I waiting on? Say prayers and ask for direction and you can’t go wrong. We may never understand life’s mysteries but we can certainly learn from the journey. It’s ok to hit rock bottom. Sometimes it’s even necessary. What’s not ok is to go ahead and make camp there. You weren’t built for rock bottom. You were built for the climb. Let’s go.
