Whatever it is, pitying yourself won't solve it.

Did I ever need to hear that today.

I have been struggling a lot lately.  There will be times where I will be sitting at home, the room silent, and I will just start thinking about things.

Thinking isn't a bad thing... except for when you start thinking about all the things that, supposedly, are going wrong.

That seems to be my problem, lately.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I have seen good in everything that I have done over the last few weeks, but my heart has been hurting over some things that I look at and see as if they are going all wrong.

The more I think about those things, though, the less amount of options I see in fixing the "problem."

Yes, I know, this blog post is extremely vague.  But that's okay, because I just need to get this out in the open.

So, I have decided to just let go.  Let go of all that is bothering me, all that is hurting me, all that is causing me to feel as if I have all the problems in the world on my shoulders.

Good bye, worry.  If I can't fix it, then I am just letting go.

I am a Daughter of God

“I won’t flirt with the darkness that I am here to fight.  I’m a Daughter of God, and I’m holding on to virtue.  I am confident in my divinity.  You’ll find me on my Father’s side, no matter what the world may do.”

You know, there are days when I am sitting in my apartment, gazing at my wonderful husband, and thinking about all the things that happened in my life to get me to where I am today.  Let me tell you, there were many events and people that helped me bring my life to where it is today.  But through everything I have gone through, there is always one thing that has never changed.  One truth that I always held on to.  One item that was always a part of my dreams, no matter the good nor the bad that I went through.  I knew that I was a Daughter of God, and I knew that one piece of knowledge would never change or go away.  And because I was a Daughter of God, I would always be able to find my way back to Him.  I love that knowledge.

Now, I am starting my final semester in college before doing Student Teaching, and I felt really alone and worried before it started.  I am only two days into it, but that feeling has gone away.  Why?  Because I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me, and wouldn't ever leave me alone.  And, if I remain faithful, He will help me through everything, and He will guide me on the path that I am meant to go on.  

And for that, I am so grateful and humbled.

Sacred and Divine

"There has come to you as your birthright something beautiful and sacred and divine. Never forget that. Your Eternal Father is the great Master of the universe. He rules over all, but He also will listen to your prayers as His daughter and hear you as you speak with Him. He will answer your prayers. He will not leave you alone."

President Gordon B. Hinckley
