Life has changed lately. I used to think that I was okay with change, that it was good. I still believe that change can be good. Change is required for progression, but change can also be scary and hard. I found myself writing in my journal this week, "I feel like I have lost myself a bit." That's a scary sentence. Hear me out though... I had to quit my job, leave my friends, (miss my BFFs wedding... love you Abs) and move to the other side of the world.
With all that said. Let me tell you that I found the answer to happiness this past weekend.
(I don't know if I really found it, more like rediscovered it).
One of my favorite talks was given my President Dieter F. Uchtdorf during the General Women's Session. He gave us a recipe for happiness, peace, and eternal life. I mean really, what else could you want?
"The Creator of the seas, sands, and endless stars is reaching out to you this very day! He is offering the grand recipe for happiness, peace, and eternal life!
To qualify for these glorious blessings, you must...
1) Humble yourself
2) Exercise faith
3) Take upon you the name of Christ
4) Seek Him in word and deed
5) Resolutely stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places"
I needed to hear this. I was looking inward and not upward and outward. I can be happy when I serve others. I can be happy when I look to my Heavenly Father and trust in His plan. The answer is simple. I knew it all along. I had just forgot. Sometimes we need a little reminding from our loving Father in heaven, and that's okay!
