4 Important Things To Remember When Your Life Is A Mess

1)  You aren't a failure.
You have goals, you have dreams, and you haven't achieved any of them.  This does not mean you never will.  Or that you're a failure.  It's easy to get frustrated with ourselves for not succeeding, but hey, circumstances have you where you're at right now and that's nobody's fault.  It's just life.  And there's a reason behind it.  I promise.  The fact that you're moving towards your goals, though, is proof that you're not letting those circumstances completely stop you.  They're just a temporary roadblock right now.  You'll find your way over - or around - them.  You're weeding out the ways that will and won't work in you reaching your dreams.  And you're awesome for doing that.

2)  You're growing and learning through this time.
Whether you realize it or not, you're storing valuable information and learning many lessons through this crappy time.  It's profitable, it's life-altering, it's good.  Life isn't a movie.  It's not perfect like some people portray it as.  But one day, you'll look back and realize just how good it was.

3)  You're not in this alone.
Nobody knows what they're doing.  If someone says they do, they're lying, cuz I'm pretty sure they haven't lived through life and somehow started all over again with a brain full of wisdom.

4)  This isn't the end.
I don't know what I would do if I didn't believe in a loving and sovereign heavenly Father who was looking over me - and who has already written my life story.  I would be a mess - worse than I already am;)  But I'm His mess.  He's doing all kinds of crazy stuff in my life and in my heart and it's a beautiful mess.  He's changing things around, taking things away, giving me new passions and desires, and guiding me along to wherever it is He wants me to go!  What an exciting thought.  This isn't the end.  It's not the end until He says it is and so far, I've survived my worst days just fine.  I got this.  You got this.  God's got this.
