24 Things I Learnt Being 24: Day 8

Disappointment is God’s guidance.

I write this one with a heavy heart. I had big plans to ring in my 25 year. After settling on plans months ago it had all fallen apart in a few days.

Initially I responded well, I understood that it wasn’t meant to be but the emotions came through. I couldn’t hide how disappointed and distraught I felt about a milestone I wanted to celebrate no longer being celebrated. I’m yet to figure out how to feel.

What I do know though is that’s God’s will and design is perfect and though I may not understand it, it will be fine.

I write this now as a reminder to myself as the day draws closer that it will be ok despite how it may seem.

I’ve had my fair share of disappointments in the past few years and it has definitely taught me that it’s not the end of the world. It doesn’t feel great for a while but I’m where I am today because of the no’s I’ve heard. If they were yes’ things would be different and there is no telling which way that would’ve gone. But I believe I’m being led in the right direction, disappointments and all.
