Sunday Style: Trust and a Blue Dress
I haven’t written for a couple of weeks because I’ll admit I’ve been a little in a funk. Life has been passing by and I want to be able to actively participate in it more. This whole looking for a full time job thing really is a full time job. If you’ve been following along with me, you know that it’s been three months since I was let go and began my job search.
Before you say it, I know, I know. I’ve heard it all. You’ll find something. It’s their loss not yours. Something better is just around the corner for you. I bet after the beginning of the year, it will pick up. I’m telling you, I’ve heard it all. I even say it to myself. But when doubt and frustration creep in, it’s hard to get them out of your head.
So, I think I’ve picked my word for this year and it’s going to be Trust. I have to trust more that my life is meant for more than this. I have to trust that I will move on and life will indeed get better. I trust that I will meet the right people who will be instrumental in my life. I have to trust that the best is yet to come.
All of this is easier said than done. You’re trying to trust when you don’t have the money to pay the bills. You’re trying to trust when you make moves. All of this on paper should be so easy. You’ll be fine- something is coming your way! Trust that it truly is coming my way. Trust that it is meant to be.
I honestly learned so much about myself in 2018. It was a little bit of a rough year for me in all aspects. I learned what I want in love and in life, what I need to sustain me emotionally and physically, what I need financially to pay the bills and save for traveling and fun and what I need in a job to satisfy my longing for training and development.
Sometimes when you’re in the midst of the storm, you can’t see your way out of it or it being anything but stormy. You think this is the only way that it’s going to be or the way that it was meant for you. Maybe you feel guilty or think you’ve done something to deserve the storm you’re in. Maybe you become guarded and defensive as a result. Trust. I’m going to do my best to trust. Trust the process. Trust that there is a solution. Trust that you are not alone. Trust that everything is going to be okay. You’re going to be okay.
I went up on the rooftop of the blue parking garage at the Star in Frisco- it also is the home of the Ford Center where the Cowboys practice. It has a beautiful view from above the city and on a clear day you can see miles away. It was so windy up there! I was trying to get good pics of this blue dress but the wind just kept blowing my hair all around and in my face and my tripod even blew over a couple of times! I continued to try to take pictures. I continued to plug along and get some content. Then the most beautiful sunset started to appear. All of my worries for good pics were subsided as I stared at this beautiful work of art. I was reminded that even in the storm, there is beauty. And after the storm, comes the rainbow.
I hope this has helped someone. It helps me to write and it helps me to know that I’m not alone. There are so many people who have it worse than me and so many people who have their own storms they are going through right now. All I can say is trust. Trust that it is going to get better. You’ve made it through every bad day that you’ve ever had. This one will be no exception.
Trust. I also like this quote from Corrie Ten Boom “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
I’m slowly getting back to myself and picking myself back up. It’s been a difficult road but not one I haven’t traveled before. Whatever you’re going through, I hope you will trust and find what you need as well. In all things, I choose joy. I hope you will too.
Now, here’s a few pics of this fabulous blue dress from the rooftop! This dress is from Unique Amazing and I’ve actually got a few dresses from them that I’ll be showing you all in the future as well!
Thanks for reading and following along with me!
