Hey pplz, I'll keep this one quick, so you can get back to doing more Sunday stuff.  I woke up this morning feeling as gloomy as the weather, which is ok every now and then. I was prepping for my daily pick me up: some prayer, reading and meditation. When my boyfriend decided he wanted to scare the crap out of me, by hiding behind the door and lurching out at me. My immediate response was of course fright, followed by anger and a whole bunch of F-bombs and to my surprise tears. He scared the crap out of me, by crap I mean all the thoughts, fears and frustration which I've been trying to quietly and secretly comb through.             
Thoughts such as, what is next in my life (as if anyone really knows)?   
Frustrations about feeling stuck. I feel like I haven't started grad school, I haven't been traveling, I'm still at the same job and I haven't bought my mom a house!         Fears that I won't find my true purpose, won't live the life I dream of.    
All that crap hit me hard and fast. I just started crying like a hormonal crazy woman. My poor boyfriend is standing there feeling super guilty until I tried to explain everything to him. I was overreacting, well kind of, I was finally reacting to my feelings. Finally coming face to face with true feelings.                            
I finally calmed down when my alarm went off telling me it was time to get ready for work, I went over to my phone to silence it, when my Bible app sent me this alert.

Ecclesiastes 3:

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
    a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.
What do workers gain from their toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
15 Whatever is has already been,
    and what will be has been before;
    and God will call the past to account.[b]
16 And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment
    both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
    a time to judge every deed.”
18 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[c]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”
22 So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?

Would you look at God at work!
I didn't interpret this as "sit on my butt and wait for opportunities to fall in my lap" no not at all. Instead I saw this as " keep working towards you goals, be patient God is at work". This is my season of planting/ sewing and searching I guess. 

More importantly, Let go and let God. Put God first and allow him to lead and guide my life. I could plan, stress and worry my self to death or I could put my trust in God, his plan and his timing. After all my entire life is a result that God is at work, waking me up everyday and catching every time I fall. Like today ^_^

When I started writing this I searched for a photo of myself to capture my mood I couldn't find a photo in which I wasn't smiling smh. But within writing this post there was a severe thunderstorm, it was raining  like crazy outside and then suddenly then sun is out just in time for a vibrant sunset.
