With the winter cold and snow now starting to effect me I have to really remind myself that life is beautiful every day come sunshine or snow...
Lately I have been homesick for places we called home before we moved back home. It's hard sometimes because when I have so many great people in my life now in several different states, my heart is torn a little. Life offers us so many opporinties to grow and learn and love. I moved to places that I thought I would HATE but in fact had so many amazing experiences given to me. It reassures me that God loves me & blesses me with happiness no matter where I am in life as long as I seek happiness, he shows me the way.
Life can be hard and stress is something I struggle with, but I have never been abandoned by my Heavenly Father and I've always made through some things that I shouldn't have. My world doesn't come crashing in and even if it did...I know I would find the strength to pick up the pieces of my broken life and create a new beginning of a new life.
Staying optimistic is a talent and talents have to be nurtured or we'll lose a little of them which then requires us to practice even harder to regain them. I have lost so e of that talent however, I realize what a gift it is to have in my life. It made me strong enough to endure pain, suffering, fear and to take on the hardest thing I ever did in my life just 5 years ago....I miss that Jamie. So I'm going to work hard to bring her back. I can do whatever I set my mind to, I have control of my own happiness and success, I can reach even the biggest of dreams. Life doesn't limit us, those around us don't limit us....we limit ourselves. We can find happiness and beauty in all things we just have to look and sometimes look realllllly hard, but it's there for us to partake in if we choose.
Where I live doesn't limit me, it allows me to get creative. Find beauty in all things...find what can bring you happiness even if you are not exactly where you think you should be in life because that is just a small part of the equation. When I felt like I was very far from where I wanted to be in life, that is where I found exactly what I needed and it brought me happiness. When I look for the beauty in things I find it....everything has a beautiful side. Through trials and tribulation there is beauty in the strength we gain and I have become a stronger more beautiful person because of my trials. I Pray I can always remember how beautiful each day I live and every moment of life I am given good and bad....if there was no "bad times" how would we learn to appreciate the good? So from that I'm grateful I can appreciate the good a lot. lol
