Remember to turn on the light.

The world works in mysterious ways sometimes and although I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, sometimes understanding those reasons aren't as easy as you'd like them to be. For a little while I had been struggling with how to even begin to be okay with losing something I didn't even know I had and the consequent realisation that I didn't even really know I wanted it until I'd lost it. Confused? Don't worry, I am too. I don't feel sad or angry or bitter, well I did at the time, but not anymore. Now I'm mostly just confused. But also oddly positive and uplifted because now I know that if one day I'm lucky enough to have it again, it'll probably be the best time of my life, ever, and I can treasure it and enjoy it without having to worry if it's the right thing. Because it will be the right thing. And not having to worry about things like that makes everything about a million times easier.

Hashtag vague.

I love you. 
Thank you for always being there!

  1. I have had what I think are the exact same feelings hun, I hope you're ok. I realised that it probably happened for a reason, and after getting over the pain and sadness that it was probably the best thing. It made me think about my future and how / whatg I want in the future, when things will be more suited to the outcome.

  2. Well, that's why it happened - you lost it so you'd realise it and now you know if it comes back just to embrace it and not over analyse :) something I should probably learn!

    1. I think it's one of those things that's easy to say but not so easy to put into practise! xo

  4. Oh Jennie I hope you are OK? Life does work in very mysterious ways and often we do not know what 'lesson' we are suppose to be learning, not just whilst we are going through it, but for a long time afterwards. Sending big hugs x

  5. Oh Jennie, I think I know what it is - I have a bit of an intuition for these things - and I am so, so sorry but I'm so pleased that you're seeing the silver lining in it like you ALWAYS do with EVERYTHING. You are absolutely amazing, a complete inspiration and the world would be about a million times more wonderful if everyone tried to live just a little bit more like you. Lots of love xxx

  6. This is possibly my favourite part of Harry Potter - such a beautiful, true quotation.
    I hope everything's okay Jennie, all we can do is muddle through and trust that everything will work itself out in the end.

  16. Jennie, just want to say how amazing I think you are! I have severe depression and it makes it hard for me to believe there's good things in the world, and that there's always hope, but your blog manages to give me a glimmer of hope in the darkest times. Your posts make me smile, laugh and cry, and you're by far my favourite blogger. Please don't change, and I hope you get whatever you've temporarily 'lost' back! <3

  17. I hope you're doing okay Jennie! I feel like I've had simialar feelings to this, and I'm glad your dealing with it okay. You're right, things work in mysterious ways - something things end up totally different than what you thought.

  18. I've been in some pretty rough places too in the past, but the knowledge that there are no ups without downs has always kept me going. And like the quote says: in the morning you've got to decide what kind of day it'll be - sure you can't turn off sadness and you can't wipe out bad things that happen, but you can try to force a smile and hope it'll stick on you for a while and make everything better. And of course: friends. Lean on them and let them patch you up when you're not capable of doing it yourself.

    Hang in there! The future is bright. <3

  19. Oh dear, I do hope you're okay. But I also truly agree with you that everything happens for a reason! I've experienced these feelings before (at least I think I know what feelings you're experiencing...) and whilst it hurt so dreadfully at the time, it allowed the world to slot everything into its rightful order and for good things to happen. So glad you're seeing the silver lining. Lots of love :) xx

    I find the books so inspirational and even though tehy're technically children's books, they're highly philosophical and have immensely shaped my look on the world!
