I think that life is all about discovering moments of bliss amidst the all the havoc of the universe. I guess that's kind of what I've been figuring out while my own little universe has seemed to be in shambles recently. I have absolutely no control over anything. And I suppose I've learned that countless times throughout the course of my existence... but now, more than ever, I am learning that as long as I make righteous decisions, I am in the Lord's hands. He gives me both a reason and the choice to smile and it's all up to me to decide whether or not I will react to life and all it's ridiculous circumstances happily or give up and allow the darkness to suffocate me. I don't quite think I'd enjoy suffocating all that much... and I rather like smiling.

So that's the trick. The trick is looking for the blessings that come among all the hardship. Because you'd better believe that hardship will come; that's inevitable. But you know what else? The blessings will come too. God loves us too much to abandon us in difficult times-- He always sends blessings our way; whether in the form of a lovely sunrise, a good friend and a warm hug, or the realization that sometimes it's not as big of a deal as you make it up to be. God loves us so He blesses us. Immensely. And I know that to be true.

Yes, this is the hardest thing I've ever done. Yes, there's not a single day where I don't sit in awe and wonder why the events of my life have played out in this order. Yes, I feel utterly and entirely confused and I'm not exactly sure what to do at this point... but I know that I have a Father, a Heavenly Father, who knows and loves me perfectly and has created a plan just for me that will guide me to happiness far beyond anything I could ever imagine.

So maybe I have a whole bunch of questions and not a lot of answers.
But then again, I have one important answer....

I know He lives and I know it's going to be okay.

So for now, all the other answers are unimportant.
And I really do believe that.
