Do you ever just sit and wonder? I know that I catch myself all the time in this day dream of, “I wonder what life will be like?” or a big one for me is “Am I really feeling like this, or is it just in my head?” I know I’ve been told that I cant just let my mind wonder to place of wonder, it can cause a lot of stress. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just cant help it. I always wonder about the future. What is in store for the life ahead of me? What will I be like in the future? What will the house I live in be like? Who will I want to spend the rest of my days and all my eternity with? I wonder, I wonder. Oh geez do I wonder. Then I start to think of my life now. Should I do this? Will it make my life more stressful? Will it bring more joy to my life? Should I let someone know how I feel? Is it too early? Am I being dumb for holding it in? Oh the question that come into my mind. I always say that I want to take each and every opportunity as it is brought into my life, but I honestly have the guts to do it? Can I just plunge into it and say, “Yes I am going to do this no matter what the outcome is.” The questions and wonders in my mind can seriously get me lost in though for hours. I like it for the fact that it makes me think, then again. Do I like to sit and wonder. Who does? How can you help not do it?

So I was sitting in sacrament on Sunday and this guy was giving his homecoming talk. As my mind wandered in and out of the talk (due to cute hailey on lap and my doodle pad) I heard him say something along this line. It made me think. I ended up loving it so much that I just had to write it down in my book. I knew I would regret it later if I didn’t, yeah I’m weird like that. Oh well. Here it is.

“Think of your happiness to bring in one soul, your content. Think of your happiness to bring in many souls, you feel blessed. Now think of the happiness of the souls you brought, you are blessed to have them and they are the ones who make you feel blessed with the appreciation of you taking the time to bring them here. One small step can turn into something big. If you make a small thing a habit, it becomes just something that you do on a regular basis. Which can bless your life and make it rich, it can be big or small. Just start somewhere.”
Take sometime to think about it, What can you do?
