Sadness has it’s place too.

I tend towards living my life with intention. Part of that is feeling every emotion. I am like any other person and have my seasons of sad too, it’s just part of the gig. I few months ago I wrote this post…thought I would share it again for my peeps that are having “the sads”. Perspective my beautiful friends. I love you!

Sad is wonderful, because it makes happy all the more precious. I am so thankful for a God that gives me seasons of both, because now I recognize how important it is to live in the moment. To take in the sadness and grow from it.

Throughout my life I have grown deeper in love with sad, because I now recognize it’s purpose. Sadness changes me. It teaches me empathy, compassion, and a tenderness that wasn’t there before. I know when sadness comes, so does progress. Thank you Lord for cutting me down, for loving me enough to hurt me. Thank you for giving me seasons of growth. Everything good and strong that has ever come from me, started with sadness first. The best part about sadness is creating the path to overcome it. To aim for higher ground. I love the journey, I love the summit. Thank you God, for molding me into something more. For helping me see my depth through dark places, and helping me to appreciate more fully the light.

Quite simply, There are no wasted emotions. Each one is a benefit and has a divine purpose. Yeah… I’ll take my sad for a while. ❤
