Be Stong

Being strong is not something that comes easy to some. 
I know I personally have had to work exceptionally hard at it.
And even more so this past year as I am becoming accustomed to the Air Force life and it's unpredictable nature.

I'm not sure if I'd really call myself a STRONG person, but I am stronger then I used to be for sure. 
And I know that is something I can thank my Heavenly Father for. 

I'd say that maturity and time also help when it comes to having a sense of strength along with a decent amount of patience to hold yourself together. 

It's amazing how much a person can change in a lifetime, really.

My mom and I were talking about how people change this weekend in fact and how much we ourselves have changed. 

I'd like to say that I have changed for the better and become more of the person I want to be at 25.
Which is good news and I certainly wouldn't be who I am without having had the experiences I have.

I say this because this morning I completely surprised myself .
I received some very disappointing news but instead of becoming upset and mad, I simply accepted it for what it was. I immediately prayed for peace to come over me and that any bad feelings would simply stop.
 I knew that I was not in control and unfortunately I had to be ok with that, which I am.
It doesn't make it any less disappointing or upsetting, but having strength and keeping faith does make it a little bit easier.

Isn't it so hard to be strong sometimes? But isn't it so funny that once it passes you, go hmmm that wasn't so hard. I can tackle the world.
