    Smile to make it all seem like

    Hello. Would you please tell me what the underlined sentence mean in the context below?
    Does it mean "We look for mountains in the clouds like it's worth it, like it's really important in our life"?
    Thank you.

    ----(from a children's novel, The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart.)
    Taking my weak little steps through the snow down that mountain, I got it all.
    I thought of all my sickness, all my anger, all my fear.
    All that was just the darkness, just the storm. I got lost in it.
    But there's always the other side of the storm. And the people who get you there.
    All the world's a storm, I guess, and we all get lost sometimes.
    We look for mountains in the clouds to make it all seem like it's worth it, like it means something.
    And sometimes we see them. And we keep going.

    I think "looking for mountains in the clouds" is the strength that makes us keep going.
    So the meaning of the underlined sentence is a bit confusing to me.
