You’re Going To Be Okay.

When tragedy strikes it becomes hard to understand and believe there’s a purpose for what’s happening. I’m the type of person who believes everything happens for a reason even if it’s bad. We all have a place in this world it’s only a matter of finding where you belong. There was a time in my life when it seemed everything was going wrong. If something bad was going to happen it was going to happen to me, It was like that for months. I got really sick, shattered my phone, totaled my car, and i was struggling to book any shows. It was like somehow i hit a dead end. I didn’t know what to do. I felt stuck and angry at everything. I got to the point where i was tired of being mad and feeling like there was a dark cloud over me. I decided to change my attitude that’s the least i could do, right? If bad things were going to continue to happen the only thing i could do is stay positive.

It’s crazy how the one simple thing changed everything. My whole outlook flipped around i learned to appreciate the outcome. I could’ve been killed in my car wreck but, i wasn’t. I was sick but, i got better. I came out stronger because of all of that i learned to be patient and appreciate the little things. When everything seems to be crashing down and you can’t find a reason why, keep your faith. Believing in yourself and staying positive is the key to success. I was in such a bad place and i thought i’d never get out but, the light is brighter on the other side. Don’t ever lose the light. It’s always there sometimes you might have to just look a little harder to find it. Life gets hard to understand at times and often can become overwhelming and feel like too much. I don’t know why bad things happen to good people and why life can be so unfair at times. The only thing we can control is our actions and our mind.

If you’re in a spot in your life where you’re struggling, don’t give up. Times get tough but always remember you’re tougher. Stay positive when things fall apart and don’t lose hope. Never forget sometimes the way you react to a situation determines the outcome. Pray in the confusion. You’re going to be okay. I know it might not feel like it today or maybe even tomorrow but eventually. One day everything is going to work out and you’re gonna feel okay again. Keep your head held high and don’t lose the light.
