Well everyone I'm home! 
Not what you were expecting right? 
Yeah me either. 
But sometimes things happen that we can't control and the only thing we can do is choose how to react. I'm choosing to look on the bright side of things and see the simple blessings from our Heavenly Father. 
It is definitely not easy. It's probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Being home has been such a challenge. For one, my plans for the next year and a half have been completely changed and I'm scrambling to figure out what to do. Another thing, 
People can be so judgmental. It's hard keeping your head up and standing strong when you know there's others trying to tear you down. But I refuse to let that happen. Yes I came home from my mission, but at least I gave it my all. I served with all my heart and I don't have any regrets.
By far the hardest thing about being home is,
Being home.
Sometimes I feel like a complete failure.
I have moments where I think to myself, 
"I shouldn't be here.
I should be out there serving.
I should be in Mexico.
I'm letting so many people down."
But you know what? None of that is true. Satan is working really hard on me. He's trying to pull me down and make me feel hopeless. He doesn't want me happy. He doesn't want me to realize my full potential. 
But guess what?
I know the ending to this story.
He won't win. He won't ever win. 
It's a daily struggle and I know that but I won't give up hope. I'm going to be okay, it'll just take a little time. As long as I trust in the Lord everything will work out and I'll realize this little bump in my road is exactly that, just a little bump.
But for now I plan on taking it just one day at a time.

  1. I know this is totally none of my business, but I am curious as to why you went back home? I have a friend and his brother had to come home too. So I totally understand how you feel on people being so judgemental.
