"we must ever remember who we are and what god expects us to become." - Thomas s. Monson

"as you continue to face many challenging choices in life, remmeber, there is great protection when you know who you are, why you are here, and where you are going" - Russell m. Nelson

"and he said, the things which are impossible with men are possible with God." - like 18:27

The lase week and a half has been the most frustrating period of time this whole year. I was feeling like I was getting things together and organized. Like I was finally on top of it all. Then everything fell apart. And I have no time to put it back together. I sprained my knee so even the simplest tasks are hard. Driving. Walking up stairs. Sleeping. I'm exhausted. In the last week I've worked 43.5 hours. All those hours have been spent dancing or walking all on my sprained knee. And I have 21 hours yet to work in the next three days. And yet my body doesn't sleep well because the pain in my knee.

I've let myself have 0 time for anyone else or even myself. Until tonight. When I oped my bible. I haven't been home for more than an hour and yet i feel revitalized. I wish I would have remembered this earlier. I could use this feeling more often I'd be happier. I'd be a better person. I'd be... Me. The me I am when I don't let everything else take over.

Remember "I can do all things, through Christ; which strengtheneth me."

  1. I know this sounds cheesey, but thank you for this post Jessica. I know how you are feeling, and though our trials are not the same (I hope your knee starts feeling better!!!) I understand, somewhat, how you are feeling. This helped me a lot, as I am also dealing with some crazy things. A lot of good things are happening as well, so I am grateful for that. But the adversary is ever present and trying to make our lives hard. Stupid him. Once again, thank you for this post. I needed it. I don't know what exactly about it helped me or made me feel so much better, but whatever it was, thank you for it.

    Anyway, I hope everything smoothes out for you. You look like your summer at Lagoon is going well! Hopefully I'll be able to stop by and see your and gray's shows!

    Much love to you cute girl.
