Goodbye Tumblr!

Well, my dear followers, its time for me to say goodbye. I’ve recently made the decision to serve as a missionary for my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am SO excited for the opportunity to teach other people about Jesus and hopefully try to share some of the happiness that I’ve found in my own life from trying to follow his teachings. In preparation for my mission, I’ve decided that its the best all-around decision to let go of tumblr :/ for two reasons: (1) its so GOSH DARN ADDICTING hahaha and I spend so much time on it, but when I’m a missionary i won’t have access to the internet or a phone for 18 months. so its probably a good idea to break the habit now instead of suffering withdrawals when I’m already a missionary and (2) I feel incredibly unprepared to teach people about my Church, so I want to spend as much of my free time as possible studying the scriptures and the word of God, and getting rid of my tumblr will help me manage my time much better.

HOWEVER, I still love all of you and I want you to forgive me if I’ve ever not messaged you back or posted something stupid or anything. Good luck with the rest of your lives!!!

Beautiful scripture. 

I remember my old seminary teacher starting off a school year with asking me to write what I wanted to gain from my studies that year, and then to read this scripture. I wrote that I wanted to know if it was all true. 

After I read the scripture aloud to the class, an overwhelming warmth and sense if peace flooded my body and I heard the simple phrase, “Yes, it is.”

Never will forget that wonderful experience.

Three qualities are from patience:

(1) not speaking about your misfortune
(2) (not speaking about) your pain
(3) not praising yourself.
