talks

Long talks.
They're so perfect. It really is through long talks that we learn about all that really matters in our jumbled/confusing/crazy/overwhelming/but-oh-so-beautiful lives, but they teach us so much about ourselves, too. I always come out of them feeling so grateful and enlightened.

Sometimes I think we focus a lot on what we are not and what we lack and what we wish we had and were. But sometimes, I think it is important to recognize what we are and what we have and what we know and what we can become. This reminds me of when Elder Holland talks about our quest for faith in his talk Lord, I Believe when he says "I am not asking you to pretend to faith you do not have. I am asking you to be true to the faith you do have."
I think life is about never forgetting what we do know and have and who we have become now and then from there moving forward being better and better day by day. Elder Hollands put it beautifully when he said:

"The size of your faith or the degree of your knowledge is not the issue--it is the integrity you demonstrate toward the faith you do have and the truth you already know."

Day by day, precept upon precept.<--that is life.

Oh, and thanks to a certain blog I follow, I am now officially obsessed with this song.


As if I wasn't already obsessed with "Royals". It's fine.

Happy Tuesday.
