“‘It isn’t as bad as you think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry’ -I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. ”
― Gordon B. Hinckley
My dear aunt reminded me of this quote by the former President of the LDS Church. We both consider ourselves nonmembers, both raised in the church, we tend to disagree on a variety of religious material in the LDS Church. However, we are quite fond of President Hinckley and his words of wisdom.
Anyway — I am quite surprised at how my attitude changed in a matter of seconds after reading this quote.
I’ve been feeling lonely lately. I’ve been searching for something more than this.
It’s nice to know people care enough to send a few thoughts my way.
It’s hard to remember that whatever we are facing, there is always someone else facing something ten times harder than we are. It’s okay to get “down” and pray for help — but what matters in the end is that we recover and pick ourselves back up again. I’m learning this…slowly.
Sometimes I get wrapped up in believing that I’m breakable. But life has proven time and time again that I’m a strong individual who always finds a way to take hold of the scariest situations. Even now as I head into my 4th semester of college — I still feel overwhelmed and unprepared to meet deadlines for payments, books and homework. The semester hasn’t even begun yet and I’m in pre-worry stage. This is something about me that I want to change. I over exaggerate most everything that I cross paths with. I tell myself to breathe and literally have a pep-talk with myself in my bathroom mirror.
I’ve been given many opportunities, and being a Resident Advisor/Assistant for the Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 semesters is quite the experience that I’m ready for. I want to embrace this opportunity and hopefully I can relax and focus the way I desire.
My goal this semester is to do well in all my classes, not only through grades — but in the classroom. I want to talk to my professors more and reach out to my classmates, too.
Wish me luck!
