I was about to inform you of all the people here in this Area, the progress, the goals, and the obstacles to be overcome, as well as a 3 sentence biography on all the fun people i've met and we are teaching. Actually... i think it will be fun xD!
But i think I'll save that for next time...
Upon reading the emails, and also seeing as a new mission rule is to shorten the internet time (for a couple transfers... 30 mins only)
(commandment from President to deal with some issues... so we ought to support him. He said if we're good, it'll change soon. So...
easiest way to get something better is to obey, might as well obey! =P!)
I apologize, but the email won't be about me or my area. But rather...
I don't know...haha.
You know something thats interesting? Two examples...
One, scriptural. Everywhere, in the scriptures, we see the Lamanites and the Nephites, and we say to ourselves... come on, why are you doing that? Come on, dont you know history? Dont you remember? This just happened to you. Why can't you see and understand something so simple?
Second, in movies. We always see when someone should or shouldnt be doing something, because the whole story is made known to us. And we often think to ourselves, or shout at the TV, or etc...saying, no no no! or don't do that! or this is gonna happen... etc.
Amazingly... even though we can see this everywhere else... we often fail to see it when we ourselves, living our own lives, are the main characters. If only we had the power, and humility, to check ourselves.
I find it amazing... almost always... we are the prolongers of our own Happiness. Often times...we are the only obstacle, to being happy. Ain't it weird? But it's true. We hurt ourselves.
People think its impossible to be Happy, always. That's why in there lives, there is a great deal of misery... they've been taught its impossible. They believe its impossible.
I promise you... if ever theres a minute in our life we are not feeling this Ecstasy of Life... something could, and ought, to change.
It is NOT impossible, to live a life full of happiness. Yes... there is opposition. So what? That will never change. It's the world.
It's our choice... to be Happy, or to be Miserable.
Neverthless...suffer as many stripes [...] However long it takes, until finally we understand.
I love my Family.
