Isn't it weird how you wake up one day and everything you thought you'd have is not what you have?! But then you realize it's just because there are better things out there.. Heavenly Father gives us experiences to make us stronger. To test us. To help us see that we are better than what we thought, and that we deserve MORE. The hardest struggles are the ones that make us our very best. (Which is hard to keep in mind when you feel like you don't have a handle on it!) I may not have all the things I thought I wanted, but that's okay. Because there IS something better. I may not have found it quite yet, but I'm getting there.
When everything falls apart, I refuse to admit defeat. It's a chance for a totally fresh start. Which can be a really good thing. :) So here goes nothing. It's time for a change, it's time to take chances and not be scared! I CAN be anything I want, do anything I want, become anything I want. And with the Lord leading my footsteps, I know I will be okay. Sometimes you just have to put it in His hands and trust in His timing. He is the way to happiness, if we trust in Him.
I am so thankful for my amazing family and my best friends who never ever give up on me, even when I want to give up on myself. I am thankful for the two most amazing best friends, the people who let me complain and cry and freak out, and then calm me down and tell me I will figure it out. Life never goes exactly how I plan it to go, but I am learning to be happy with that. Because there is a bigger picture that only God can see. I am so thankful for the church in my life, I might not have everything figured out, but I know what I want. And that is the first step :) Everything WILL fall into place. Everything WILL be okay! :)
