Daily affirmations

The past 2 years have been a huge roller coaster of emotions, there have been many ups and many downs. Through it all I realized that I am pretty good at keeping my feelings on a very superficial level, after all I have had 25 years of practice. Everyday I roll out of bed, put on a happy facade (sometimes it is better than others), and I pretend like I am not struggling to keep the tears back as I watch those around me interact with their friends and family. I pretend that I love the job I moved across the country for. I pretend like my family does not treat me like I don't exist. I can't help but wonder WHY? and WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO LEARN FROM ALL OF THIS? Then I found this quote on pinterest and realized that I need to read this on a daily basis... because it's true.

" Someday everything will all make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason." (quote from pinterest)

    "Having faith doesn’t mean you’ll be filled with joy and conviction every moment. Having faith means you keep persisting and believing that the blessing and comfort lie ahead. And I testify to you they do." -Sister Oaks

    "Often the deep valleys of our present will be understood only by looking back on them from the mountains of our future experience. Often we can’t see the Lord’s hand in our lives until long after trials have passed. Often the most difficult times of our lives are essential building blocks that form the foundation of our character and pave the way to future opportunity, understanding, and happiness."
    "Patience means to abide in faith, knowing that sometimes it is in the waiting rather than in the receiving that we grow the most."
    President Uchtdorf
