do not let other judgements (or your own) immobilize you.allowing fear (of any kind) in immediately shuts off creativity.there is no set way to accomplish anything.life does not have to go in any certain order, at any certain pace, or in any particular way. building a life is meant to be free and creative.there is no wrong way to do it. if someone thinks your work sucks, if someone doesn't like the decisions you have made, if you are living outside of the norm—who cares. where is the rule book? who is setting these standards? who is to say you can't reach your goals on a different route? take the harder path, step outside your comfort zone, try something you don't know how to do, push yourselfthese are the things that will help you improve and grow and continually reinvent yourself
"charity is a gift from God...your love for all people will increase, especially those among whom you labor...you will avoid judging others, criticizing them, or saying negative things about them." -preach my gospel
the scriptures state the words, "remember, remember.." over and over. i have begun to highlight them. what is this about? we promise to remember the savior when we are baptized. and what does this mean? why should we do this?the adversary tries to make us forget.his sole purpose is to have us forget who we are. confuse our identity.he wants us to forget our purpose in this life, WHY we believe and do the things that we do.he wants us to forget the feelings of inspiration we have had. he wants us to forget our savior and loving God. he wants us to forget our worth.the adversary wins. all. the. time.i find myself begging others to remember. remember those days, remember those feelings, remember? I find myself begging myself to remember. please. remember the joy, remember the strength, remember the blessings, remember promises, remember he has given you power.please don't let me forget this.the savior helps me to remember. the spirit shows me forever.in my dream i get lost. things are confusing. i have anxiety. life goes chaotic. and josh talks me through it and holds my hand.he reminds me who i am. reminds me to keep dreaming. reminds me to be true. reminds me to be soft. reminds me reach my potential.he reminds me to stretch a little.he reminds me to not wear brown and black togetherto think before i speakto createit's one of these times where all the pieces fit. and even though finals are tomorrow and i have barely studied, and i have 100 reasons to be stressed out—i'm not. my heart is calm. i am filled. when i begin to doubt myself, all i have to do is look around me. I feel so much love from my Father in heaven. He fills me so.
