life is good.

by @according2kelly on April 22, 2008

i’m not saying life is perfect, but i’m doing okay, i’m hanging in there… thanks to everyone’s thoughts, comments, phone calls & prayers. everyone struggles, i know and accept that. if we never experience the hard times, then it’s difficult to appreciate the good ones. so each & every time i feel the weight of the world on my shoulders, i need to take a step back & just breathe… each & every time i feel alone, i need to remember that i have friends and family who love me… each & every time that i feel like i’m not good enough, or that what i’m doing doesn’t make a difference, i need to remember the words of a wise man – gordon b. hinckley:

i have discovered that life is not a series of great heroic acts. life at its best is a matter of consistent goodness and decency, doing without fanfare that which needed to be done when it needed to be done. i have observed that it is not the geniuses that make the differences in this world. i have observed that the work of the world is done largely by men and women of ordinary talent who have worked in an extraordinary manner.

Thank goodness life is just one day at a time. I think its amazing, if you have the right attitude, how much we really can handle. I think the lord knows just that. There is always something to be grateful for, that's what gets me through those hard days. Just have to focus on the blessings...
