Finals have come and I need a study break/I am procrastinating reading about Wyoming history.
Lately I've developed two new mottos.
How true is this statement! Countless times in my life I'll think, "wow I'm feeling pretty good about..." (this or that). I tend to be a healthy kind of confident until I compare myself. Whenever I start to compare I immediately say this quote in my head. Doing this has helped me so much to walk more comfortably in my skin. Don't let yourself steal your joy.
As I open this chapter in my life I have so many "what ifs" occurring. I am a planner. I love to be prepared and have my life in order (you're right, Lu I'm type A). This time in my life is absolutely driving me nuts! I know I need to go on a mission, but I also want to know the future too! I want to know why things have happened the way they have. For example: Why did I meet this person? Why did I have to have this experience? I came across this quote and found it so applicable. My version of this would also be, "give me the faith to have patience until I can understand it for myself." Learning to act on faith is a simple principle that is difficult to complete. I know as we act on faith things will unfold how they are supposed to. Life just has a tendency to work out.
I also find this applicable to those struggling with doubts. Some things we will not find out in this life and that's okay. I keep to the hope that one day we will understand everything perfectly, but for right now we have to wait and keep enduring to the end.
