This is a plaque I have in my room that I got from a friend right before my first year of college started. I haven't really read it in a while and I think it was the perfect time to look at it...
There are those days when I think things just couldn't get any worse....But then I finally snap out of it and realize how truly blessed I am in my life.
I have an amazing family. I seriously couldn't ask for a better one.
They love and care for me and I know that I can always turn to them. We always have so much fun when we are all together! What a blessing it is to have such a great relationship with my family. I love them so much!
Then I have great friends; I've met so many amazing people out here at BYU and friends I've known for years. They strengthen me and help me in my daily life. I know that without them, I wouldn't be the person I am today.
I feel so blessed that I am at BYU. It is such a great school; I worked so hard in highschool to get here and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be at this campus. It is amazing... hard, but amazing.
I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I don't know where I'd be in my life without this gospel! I feel so lucky- we have amazing leaders and have great guidelines. I am so happy to be a part of this church; I feel like I recieve so many blessings every day that I should recognize a little bit more.
This list could go on and on. I have so much to be grateful for and I need to appreciate it all a lot more.
So when life puts you down, just think of "The Real To-Do List". I know everyone says this but life is too short- so instead of spending it being unhappy or complaining about how things didnt go like you planned, realize all the great things that are out there and that things happen for a reason. Don't sweat the small stuff... be happy...
Thats my two cents for the night. It's something I needed to think about and I figured I'd share it with you.
