What Gets Me Through A Trying Day


In my 20s, when asked what gets me through a trying day, the answer was the memories of a wander-filled life. Now in my 30s, while I still enjoy the wanders, it’s not enough to get me through trying times. Perhaps, it is age or the feeling that I have been there and done that. I’m not really sure.

I have been planning to repurpose this blog for the longest time as I don’t see myself writing about adventures as much. As a mom of 1, wander is possible, however, I no longer have the cravings for it.

Connecting to God was my “trying times pill” in this season. I never really thought that this time will come. When I was chasing wanders, it consumed me. There was never a weekend that I didn’t longed to be outdoors. There was so much to explore.

I have never been to much by people’s standard. However, the joy that I get from connecting to God has given me peace and satisfaction.

It must be true. I wish I’ve known in my 20s that I’m chasing the wrong pill towards happiness. I don’t have regrets though because while it doesn’t get me through trying times in my 30s, the wanders that I’ve had has become a mark of how blessed and favored my life has been. Thanks to the architect and creator of life!!!

So whether you are in your 20s or 30s or even 40s, chase whatever makes you happy. You do you. As a Christian, it will be right to chase God first and the rest shall be provided for. Find the path of focus towards our maker. No one really knows us better than the one who created us. Go to Him and seek out your purpose.
