“There is no time for ease and comfort.
It is the time to dare and endure.”
Life was never meant to be easy. It was never meant for us to twiddle away and watch it pass by as we sit and stare in laziness. It was meant for growing, learning, enduring and serving. I’ve found that it is important to be happy with the stage in life that you are in, but it is still essential to keep yourself motivated to be better and do better. (Continued below…)

Each life experience is there to help us improve and be added upon. It is our privilege in this life to make choices and it is our duty to actively make them and strive to choose what is right. Consequently, we are also accountable for the choices we make. In October 2014, Elder D. Todd Christofferson talked about this subject and said, “It is [God’s] plan and His will that we have the principal decision-making role in our own life[ ]. God will not live our lives for us nor control us as if we were His puppets.” He continues on to say, “We should (and we do) rejoice in the God-ordained plan that permits us to make choices to act for ourselves and experience the consequences, or as the scriptures express it, to ‘taste the bitter, that [we] may know to prize the good.'” It is important that we use our agency to make choices and to take accountability for their consequences. We have the ability to choose freely for ourselves.
Hope you have a great Wednesday everyone!
