My Love


So as I was walking the other night I realized that I have some pretty big expectations out of my life with no desire to get them. As I look at what those I look up to are accomplishing and have accomplished in their life I am coming to realize that I want more..... I want to find that thing that I can do and the thing that I will LOVE more than anything else...I have no idea what it is yet but I figured I could start with things that I know I love already.... and maybe these will lead me to what I am looking for...
But the number one thing that I love in my life is the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that he loves me and the closer I get to him the closer I will be to pure happiness in all that I do.

Creating an adventure


Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
~ Helen Keller


I don't want my life to be nothing so I am taking these wise words and making each day an adventure. Stepping out side of my comfort zone to create a life which is worth living. In relief society this week we went over President Uchtdorf talk Happiness, Your Heritage. He speaks about the desires of the human soul and our yearning to create. He says "Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty." This got me thinking how can I encompass my desire to make each day an adventure while following this advice. I am making goal today to create something each day whether it is an amazing artistic masterpiece (which I feel is highly unlikely) or a smile on some ones face (much more likely). I want to live like I am not afraid of who I am and help other people feel loved and happy and maybe the dark rain cloud over my head will go away. "The more you trust and rely upon the Spirit, the greater your capacity to create. That is your opportunity in this life and your destiny in the life to come." Heavenly Father wants me to be happy and created me so that I can be that way and that I can one day create like him. I can not wait to see what this life has instore for me =]
