Don't get scared because it is a wonderful life but too many portray it as one big "high" when it isn't. This is why when tough times come, these people are the first to fail because they are unprepared. As you begin your walk with God, you will see that the problems which once seemed paramount will look like a molehill in comparison to the majesty of God.
