I'm feeling good!

Ahhhh, I just really feel better about what I am doing. . . . life throws things at us that discourage us sometimes, and life builds us up at other times. It's getting through the discouragement and finding ourselves pushing to improve, to become better to counteract the discouragement. Sometimes things that can change my whole outlook can be the smallest things. . . .

I think I am my worst sabatour. I have been noticing it lately and I don't like the way I make myself feel. So how does one tell oneself to shut up! I remember something from school (I don't claim to remember much from school). . but I do remember hearing a teacher or something say "No one can make you feel inferior unless you let them." I am not sure if that is exact, but to that effect. It makes sense though. YOU are the one that tells yourself that you are inferior to another person. I think status is determined by us. A rich man could try to make me feel inferior because he has more money than me, but it is when I believe I am inferior that I feel inferior. No person is more or less important in life than another. Respect is earned, not demanded or entitled. I think every person should be treated with an equal amount of respect, then depending on the person's actions or behaviors, the person can earn more respect or can lose the respect of others.

I am very tired and I am pretty sure this post doesn't really make much sense at all :) What I am trying to say is I believe in me. . . . I see improvement and it is much needed!

Someone once told me that if you want to stop shoot yourself in the foot (or being your own saboteur, as you put it) ask yourself before making your choices if that choice fits with your values. Ever since I was told that - which frankly would have been nice if I'd been told that ten years earlier - I've been surprised at how many times I'm about to make a choice that I don't value.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
