Savor: On Seasons Of Life

Seasons are weird.

And I’m not talking fall, winter, spring, and summer — although, those can be weird, too.

I’m talking the seasons of life: ever-changing, the ebbs and flows, the beginnings and ends of eras.

This season for me has been mostly sweet with a touch of longing.

This season has been marked with big changes: leaving my job at Summit, starting with Movement, and trying to open a new climbing gym. It’s been marked with investing in new friendships, and some who’ve been put more on the backburner.

I also started going to a new church, Disciple City, which has been monumentally good for my faith and also mental and spiritual health. A lot of newness, a lot of change, a lot of excitement.

But something that’s lingered on since the last season is a bit of longing, a bit of loneliness, a bit of struggling with this seemingly perpetual singleness. It’s something that’s heavy on my heart and mind, and I’m not sure it will go away until I’m in a mutual and healthy relationship.

But that’s OK, and I’m truly OK.

I really am enjoying this season of change and newness. I really am enjoying a new job, a new church, and new friends.

It’s OK that my current season is mixed with a little bit of sorrow, because truly what is experiencing joy without sorrow, anyway?

My encouragement to you is this: stay present, stay thankful for this season if it’s good and sweet and memorable to you. And if it’s not, remember it’s only a season, and this too shall pass.

Let’s celebrate the moment. Let’s celebrate the seasons!

    As hard as it is, waiting often brings the perfect companion. I’ve seen it happen so many times. I think there’s a richness and depth to a long-waited-for relationship. And “they” say, when you quit looking, that’s when he/she shows up. 💜
