enjoy the moment

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

One thing that I have learned this past week is you have to enjoy the moment.

I feel like we often focus too much on the past and also too much on the future. Now I am not saying that we shouldn’t talk about past experiences or we shouldn’t plan, but that we should enjoy the time we are in now. I feel that a lot of time our lives get stressful or we have a lot of things that need to get done and we often think that it will be so much better in a week or a month. We often forget that and don’t focus on what we are learning and the experiences we are having in that moment. One thing that I feel we often forget is that when times get hard or stressful is when we should just enjoy the moment. We just need to laugh and enjoy what life puts in your way.

New and Old Be where your feet are!

Be where your feet are!

For example, today I bought a new pair of shoes. I was really excited to try them out and see how they worked. When I got back to the house there was only one shoe in the box. I looked around the box to see if the other one fell out. But I realized it had not. I was a little frustrated and ready to go back to the store and tell them that they only put one shoe in the box. The AP offered to go back with me and as we got in the car he said, “Will you get my wallet out of the glove box?” I opened up the glove box and there was my shoe. They had played a joke on me. It was hilarious. Something to lighten the mood in a stressful moment.

We just need to remember in Ether 12:6 that trials will help us become strong and will help us draw closer to our Savior.

Love you all and hope you have a great week.

Elder Wagstaff

Ether 12:6 – And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith. 

  • What would you say is your biggest physical challenge? When do you find your greatest spiritual strength? SLEEP!! haha. I honestly love talking to people. Even when they want to fight and argue, I love just staying calm and showing my love towards them.
