SOMETIMES i like not being able to sleep, i know weird huh. but it feels nice to ponder and have the time to do it. to be able to look at my life and try to correct things in life to make changes. Time to listen to some happy music and sit back and close my eyes. Just sit and let my thoughts wander and re arrange in my head. Just feel that peace and calamity that I strive for everyday.
Life's tough.. but you know I CAN DO HARD THINGS. A motto that's stuck through out my life as a kid. Thanks, Bro Tanner for that. I'll never forget it
Another thing I strongly believe in is, NOTHING is achieve without sacrificed. Whether good or bad, big or small. Without sacrifice of time, money, feelings, whatever it may be. You sacrifice something in order to receive something in return. Sometimes the return may be big or small. Whether you want to sacrifice you're time and talents to help those in need, or for memories. The choice is up to you.
I believe that, thats a main part of the recipe to happiness... Willing to sacrifice for the better.. willing to let go of things that don't belong in your life no matter how much you want them. Willing to change. Willing to have faith, that there are things waiting in store for you, if you're willing to make the sacrifice.
Motivation, one of the biggest things people are missing when they try to change. Many feel like they have no control over themselves. “This is who I am.” “I cannot change.” “I was born this way.” The world makes claims like this all the time. “I can’t control my desires.”
I cannot say this any more clearly, you can deny it all you want but it's true. We are ALL children of our Heavenly Father, thats WHO WE ARE, who we are destined to be. We need to learn and understand this but yet its not easy. Its a "hard thing" and you know what I CAN do hard things. I know that if I humble myself and understand that the lord has a better plan for me. That these changes can be done, that this change of heart is possible. Its all wether i'm willing to put in the sacrifice whatever it may be.
This reminds me of the General Conference talk Elder Dale G. Renlund about preserving the hearts mighty change. In it he states, "Enduring to the end can be challenging because the tendency of the natural man is to reject the spiritually changed heart and allow it to harden Once we begin to make the sacrifices our motivation can only last so long and at times we give up and and begin to dig the whole we once sat in, trapped and alone. Just because it's the easiest way out. But yet we all know that the easiest way isn't the best, so why do we still try the easy way? make shortcuts in life? I believe we need to learn to want to sacrifice, to have the patience for things to get better in our life, for the mysteries of God to unfold. All in order for us to have true happiness. To be able to live in a blissful state
