I’ve been so sporadic on here and on social media since the new year started and for very good reason. Life has hit me with a ton of bricks and the almost hilarious part of it is, it has been nearly all at once.
If you read a previous post of mine called, When Life Throws You Curveballs, you’d probably laugh for me (or feel sorry for me, lol) because as soon as I hit the publish button on that article, more of life happened.
Was I really surprised? No. ‘Welcome to the Life of Huong’ should be the title to the movie of my life. And the subtitle? ‘I’m used to it by now.’
The positive side of me has tried really hard not to think about all the negatives that has been happening lately. I’ve been fighting hardcore not to let myself feel defeated, even for just a bit.
But lately, things have been getting very uncomfortable. And this is coming from someone who always tries to see life with a platinum lining.
As much as I like being comfortable, I also like growth and change, just not all at once in every area of my life. And to be completely transparent, I’ve been learning how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable while doing what’s right for me even though everything seems overwhelming right now.
Have I liked that changes are happening? No. Not really.
Why? Because I’m not the one making those changes. But, what am I going to do?

Besides, there’s nothing I can do to stop life from happening. All I can do is do my best to navigate these changes by planning and executing what I can control.
Even though I don’t want to, I have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Otherwise, I’d just be one miserable person. Why would I welcome negative vibes on myself and my life when I can adapt, learn, grow, and control what I can control?
After reading an article my best friend, Sarah, sent to me today, one thing I’m proud of myself is that as a positive person. I’ll always be shifting my perspective to the good side of life.
Lesson for today?
I can’t bring myself to say these things happened to me because I prefer to say that life is happening for me.
That’s how I know I’m truly living life instead of going through the motions.
