One day I will get things right..

A lot of the time I tell myself, "One day you will get things right.." That can be taken as either a negative or positive view depending on how you look at life.  Sometimes school slaps you in the face, family and friends laugh at you, dating can be confusing, you lose a sporting event, and you get stressed out about your future.  Its our choice to determine what our reaction will be.

President Packer recently said "Understand that you are not perfect, but that you are moving along that road."  This is something that I try to remind myself of.  I am not perfect, I can give you a huge list of why I am not, but I am moving along that road, learning and growing from each and every day.  Sometimes I move along that road like a snail, and at other times I am in a dead sprint, but I am moving along that road at all times.

I've talked to some people about how much our attitude makes a difference.  We can think, act, and be positive and life will be happy and fruitful.  Or we can think, act, or be negative and be depressed and lonely.  It is up to us what our life is like.  Our situations and circumstances don't make us who we, its how we react to them that determines who we are.

We all know that things have a way of working out.  Rely on the Lord and they will work out for your benefit.

"Change your thoughts and you'll change your world"

"Your future is as bright as your FAITH" - President Monson

"If you don't like something, change it, if your can't change it, change the way you think about it"

"You were given this life because you were strong enough to live it"

"A river a mile wide 1 inch deep dries up faster than a river 1 inch wide a mile deep. Don't spread yourself too thin else you risk disappointment and things unfulfilled."

"Treat everyone like they're struggling with something, because half the time you'll be right."

Sometimes its about forgetting ourselves...
