The Moment You Realize You're Letting Go Of What You Thought You Couldn't

Things fall apart so better things can fall together.

The Moment You Realize You're Letting Go Of What You Thought You Couldn't
Karen Corrales

"When you don’t move the mountains I need you to move, I will still trust in you."

But how hard is it for us to actually remember that I easily forget to let go and let God when things don’t go the way I WANT them to go. I quickly forget about God's goodness.

I forget that I’m not in charge but HE is. My plans aren’t his plans. As hard as I try — he shuts them all down. And that is the problem. I “try." He wants me to stop trying and just let everything be because at the end of the day I won't get the answers or expectations I wanted.

The job you didn’t get, the relationship that didn’t work out, and all those people that rejected you- just know everything happens for a reason. As crazy and untrue as it sounds it’s TRUE. Everything does happen for a reason.

"God steps in whenever something isn't for us. And he will make it very clear to you."

I chased after so many things. I tried so hard to fix and change things in people, including myself. I thought I was in the wrong and began to believe all the negative comments I was given and started settling for less than what I truly deserved. I had plenty of warning signs that whatever I was doing wasn't the best thing for me. My mind knew I had to let go but my heart couldn't actually do it.

I was in a battle with myself and thought things would change and that everything will work out. That didn't stop me from chasing after what was the most toxic person I've encountered but you see when you're with them for a while you accustom to that life and accept everything they say to you and how you get treated. I became used to his behavior and ways.

I didn't see it as a problem anymore and I didn't want to listen to anyone who told me he wasn't good. I truly believed that my way would work. With my luck, I got exactly what I was warned about by everybody and even myself but I tried denying it.

I ended up with a broken heart, and emotionally a wreck. I couldn't believe it was the end of what I thought was love.

As I'm looking back now, I can truly see how manipulated I was and how emotionally abusive this guy actually was. For close to a year I was made out to be the crazy one who was paranoid and had trust issues, but everything had a reason behind it.

I can say I'm quite disappointed in myself for not listening and pushing everyone away because I was tired of hearing them tell me it wasn't going to end well but this is a big thank you to everyone who stuck with me on this roller coaster that I'm sure seemed to be one that wasn't going to end. I can finally say that I feel at peace with myself and I feel free. It feels like the air has cleared and I still have work to do but I'm proud to say I am moving on.

As hard as it is we have to let go of what we want and understand it's completely out our hands to change someone. God knows our desires and he will make it happen in his perfect timing. Letting go is hard, I’m not going to sugar coat it. It really is- but going through the pain makes us stronger and gives you a powerful feeling that now you are in control. This season I’m facing is hard but I have the best support system and always trust in him. His ways are always good and for the best of us even in moments when we think they're not.

God has a plan for each of us. How beautiful is knowing that? So during your trials, please don't lose focus.

Let go and let God.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
