You Can Do Hard Things

Recently I have had to deal with the "loss" of one of my best friends. They didn't die, but I couldn't be friends anymore with this person because of their choices and how it was affecting me. Even though I don't see or talk to that person, I still think about it all the time. Recently I have been pondering and gained some powerful testimony builders.

The main thing, is that you have to live your testimony. You can't say you have a testimony and you know what's right, and then do wrong. To be a true disciple of Christ means that you try your best, repent, and keep trying your very best. In the words of Sherri Dew "...a casual knowledge of the gospel isn't enough, you have to immerse yourself". You're either all in, or you're not in at all.

I know that the Atonement brings peace to everyone who uses it. We are loved. :)

Can someone please buy me this picture? It's only $300...

Ok - can I just tell you my day yesterday?! So you can understand how hard my life is (haha jk I have like the best/easiest life ever):

Ok Sunday morn - woke up at 9 to meet with the Bishop, had church at 1, went to work at 6pm

Sunday night - someone called in "sick" (she has the flu?! gosh...haha jk love ya talya!) So I started out with 8 patients, by 6am I had 11 - why do people keep getting bowel obstructions?! And a pneumothorax?? You wimp...your lung collapsed, so what?

Monday morning - came home and finished my HW that I didn't do because I'm retarded. Then I met with my group at 10am, then drove to American Fork to renew my CPR...guh. Then I came back to school to do my presentation at 2, then class, then wrote 2 papers.

The rest of the day was amazing - James picked me up and we went to our favorite very healthy all-you-can-eat pizza and pasta buffet :) We talked about lots of good things - as usual - because we're like really spiritual and deep...haha. Then I came home and went straight to bed. At 7:30. It was amazing. When I woke up there was like 3 inches of snow - I guess it snowed last night!

Ok - so also I just want to say that I love my job so much. It's hard sometimes to never sleep, but I love getting paid to serve people, it's the best ever.

Be happy :)
