Have you ever gone through an experience that had you questioning what you really stood for. 
All those years you knew exactly what you wanted, who you were as a person, and then you suddenly don't. Like your world has been flipped upside down and you're 
frantically searching for a solid grasp on things. 
Life is weird like that, don't you think? 
Or is it just part of growing pains?  
I believe that God has the upper hand and everything happens for a reason. 
Of course it's not always easy to accept why some things happen the way they do. As humans we are a curious bunch, we want answers, we constantly ask 'why', we want to be able to reason everything. Learning to let go of things that are not in our control or that we can't change is quite literally one of the most freeing feelings. 
Focusing on the good isn't always easy when you're in the thick of it. But choose one thing each day that you're grateful for, focus on it, breathe it in, have it help you rise above the storm. 
Each day do this, until one day your outlook on life changes, you start to see through the clouds and can see your old self again. 
And guess what, it might very well not be your old self that you find, 
it can be a new and improved you! A wiser you! A better you! 
How cool is that! 
I will tell you it's not easy. 
Some days are worse than others, but keep the faith yo!
 It gets better. It's painful, but in the end...
I promise it'll be beautiful.
