I’m going to be honest here and say for today’s MORAvational Monday, I didn’t exactly know what I was going to write about. There’s always so much going on in all of our lives, but for some reason, I really was at a standstill with today’s topic. Then, after a few conversations with friends from different walks of life, I realized so many people in the 18-28 range are feeling like they are in this kind of limbo.
Truth is, the second we graduate high school, we face a lot of changes. Some people go off and travel, some get jobs, and some go to college. We don’t necessarily feel like we’re in the limbo just yet, because we are experiencing our first taste of freedom.
Hearing so many of my friends speak about changes in relationships, life, career, and friendships made me think about my own changes. I have also felt these changes and I’ve felt them hard. Contrary to my control-freak beliefs, life cannot and does not always go as planned. And you best believe the universe will test your patience during this time.
So, what do you do when you’re feeling like you’re in limbo and you’re in need of some answers?

Or go to a psychic that will tell you everything will be alright. Or both.
Whether you are Christian, Muslim, Jewish, or even an atheist, it doesn’t matter: you can still find the faith that everything will work itself out.
Take it from someone who has been through the ringer and back, once you truly believe that it will be okay, you can find a way to just keep going. Look back on the hard times of your life. And I mean, really look. Did it ever not fix itself or show you why certain things have happened?
9 times out of 10, if we find it in ourselves to really reflect, we can see why certain things had to happen the way it did. But, it’s not easy to push yourself to keep going when you feel like you’re in limbo and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, I don’t have the magic solution on how you can find your faith, but I can tell you that once you do, everything will seem a bit easier.
I’m personally at a time in my life where I’m in a constant limbo: half of my friends are either in serious relationships or getting engaged, my career isn’t where I want it to be, and there have been a lot of changes in my friendship circles. Just to name a few things. However, I’ve changed my attitude about how I feel about all of this.
Because every morning I force myself to wake up and say ‘something amazing is about to happen and it will take me out of this weird time’, I’ve become a different person. Fake it until you make it. Drill it in your head that things will be okay until you truly believe it will be.
And that is how you learn to find the faith.
