It's not me, It's you.

There are a lot of things that I know to be true. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on the earth. I know that my family loves me. I know that an education is important. I know that the sun rises in the east. I know where the stars form the big dipper. I know that dreams come true. I know that everything happens for a reason, that I am here for a reason. And I know that, no matter what, everything is going to turn out ok.
I've noticed that a lot of people are afraid. We all have something that we are afraid of, that keeps us from doing things that actually could end up being good for us. I'm afraid of a lot of things. I used to let that hold me back. One day I realized, that if I keep letting fear rule my life, I'm not going to get anywhere I want to be. Because EVERYTHING in life that is worth anything is going to require some effort. It's going to be risky, it's going to be challenging, it's going to be hard. But the point is that it IS worth it. Everyone gets so sidetracked by the little steps in life, all they can see is the path right in front of them. What people need to do, is pick up their heads and look straight at what they are headed for. Can you do it? Of course you can. If it means a lot to you, you can get anything you want in life.
I believe in fairytales. I believe that if I keep trying, I'm going to get exactly what I want out of life. I don't let fear rule my life, I let FAITH rule my life. No matter what happens, I have faith that I will be just fine. Better than fine. Trials are but a small moment. Pure happiness comes to those who make an effort to find it. Love comes to those who are prepared for it. I've seen way too many of my friends hold themselves back because of fears, and I just want to shake some sense into them! Broken hearts hurt, but they teach a lot.
It's worth it. Go for it. Be brave. Take the steps. Faith, not fear.
I'm having a great time being brave! Go ahead and join me. :)

p.s. I'm making sunday dinner tomorrow. Wish me luck!
