It has been a while since I last wrote, so I felt like it was time to let you all know what else is going on with me. I really have no idea why people read what I write, but I like to think I'm funny and brighten people's days somehow, so I will try to fulfill your reason for reading this blog post. First of all, I'm working two jobs right now. My first job is working in customer service for a place called Fin Fun Mermaid. They sell mermaid tails in which girls can actually swim.
|And I want one.|
This one specifically.
Anyway, my second job is not as exciting, but I love it just as much! I work at the Distribution Center for Deseret Book. I get to be around products everyday that uplift and inspire people. What more could you want? Working two jobs sometimes makes me feel like this:
BUT, it has been a HUGE blessing. My time is jam packed and I get to pay off as much of my loans as I can before school starts in January. (If you didn't know but wanted to: I am an Economics major. Yes, I did change it once again!) :D
With all my time filled, I have found that I have been lacking in developing my relationship with my Heavenly Father. If I did have time, I didn't really want to spend it like I should either, so I found that I started to slowly regress. This is pretty much how I felt when I realized what was happening:
I've never been the kind of person who just accepts an error when it is something I can fix, so I pondered on how I could progress once again. What I came up with is updating my ipod. I uploaded General Conference and General Authority talks. My music is similar to what I listened to on the mission and I have focused my thoughts, every free moment I have, on the Savior and His Atonement. This has helped me resist temptation and focus on what really matters most. I am so blessed to live in this time period where good, uplifting technology is available to me. I know that I can change and be forgiven, and it fills me with joy that I can share that amazing fact. I love the gospel, the teachings of Christ, and His atoning sacrifice. Thank you for reading! I hope you thought it was worth reading this post. :)
