This week was a bit of a rollercoaster ride. I’m in the process of creating a formula to love the discouraging moments. I stole most of these ideas from the talk "Come what may and love it” By Elder Wirthlin. I absolutely love that talk!!
First off, count your blessings. Love the little things...the cute puppies in the street, the warm soy milk in the morning or, the smell of fresh bread in the plaza.
Second, learn to laugh. When the day has been tough and your companion somehow trips into a hole in the street, just laugh it off together and keep walking. See the humor in the tough times.
Third, remember that there is a balance in all things. So, if you’ve had a bad day just remember that it’s a universal law that, an awesome day is on the way!
Everyone has trials, we need them, we are humbled by them, and ultimately we learn from them. Love the tough times. With lots of prayer and faith in the Lord we can make it (happily) through whatever comes our way.
Be strong, Keep the faith and Follow the Lord.
