    You certainly want to break up this sentence into several ones. Not sure about the progressive -- "I feel" is probably better. I don't think you can take steps to face dilemma. Something happens in your life.
    If my English were not so rusty I would try and rephrase it, but I'd better forget it

    I am feeling optimistic as well as hopeful and I'm taking steps needed to face all these dilemmas in my life so as to live a deserving life.

    I suppose this is what is intended. I guessed the meaning here and there. [note that "and" should not be found twice in a long sentence so close to one another. Just does not work.]

    But I am for the breaking up of the sentence. Shorter sentences in the midst of long sentences gives the reader a break as well as enhances the meaning.
