When Life Does Not Go As Planned

I recently turned 35. Yay me! I am so grateful to be alive but inevitably, I got to thinking about my life. I think in many ways that age represents a sort of watershed moment and so I suspect that I am not the only single Christian woman who feels the need to examine her life when she arrives upon this milestone.

Gratitude

Do you realise we are inherently ungrateful? That I think is a key contributor to our being unhappy or feeling like failures in many cases. I don’t know about you, but I find myself  grumbling (to myself) from time to time about the things I do not have in my life. On some occasions, it is that I do not have a husband; on others, it is that my friends are far away or have their own families and so I have no one to hang out with on a weekend. Sounds familiar?

Two weeks ago I spoke about having crazy faith. I really feel more and more that I am being called upon to exercise just that. I am thinking of making some changes in my life right now, career-wise, but it’s hard. It’s hard because it would require getting out of my comfort zone, essentially getting rid of my safety net, and jumping!
