I have been doing a lot of deep thinking (yea I know hard to believe) I have been reviewing my life...or lack of it as of the past 4 years.
After I had my heart attack, and all the other "stuff" that came with it, I just kind of died. I quit living.
Once upon a time,
it was nothing to jump on a plane with a friend...just to go...
Shop...until you drop!
Party... no party??? Well, we will make up a reason for one
Laugh...and then laugh even harder...
As I said, I have been doing a lot of thinking, and growing mostly spiritually. In the midst of all of this I realized I was missing out on an important principle...This life is called the "Plan of Happiness" not just getting by, not staying in my house afraid to leave for fear I might get sick, or feel weak, not worrying about dieing today.
Why did I forget that?
Satan loves for us to be discouraged, it is his favorite tool.
So, today I am going to live! I am going to love life, I am going to live like I once did. And I am going to continue to thank my Heavenly Father everyday for giving me another one to enjoy!
from the words of President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
" to all who feel discouraged, worried, or lonely I say with love and deep concern for you, never give in.
Never allow despair to overcome your spirit.
Embrace and rely upon the Hope of Israel, for the love of the Son of God pierces all darkness, softens all sorrow, and gladdens every heart. "
