One of my best friends loves Ghandi. Like, she’s obsessed with Ghandi. And I often hear the quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” I always just thought, “Yeah, that’s nice.” Today I finally started to get it. Yesterday was not a great day for me, for many reasons. But early in the morning, while having a deeply spiritual talk with Alli, I realized that so many people around me ARE the change that I want to see in the world, and that I should start doing that too.
So thank you to Alli for sitting and listening to me rant, and always having the best spiritual talks with me. Thank you to my sweet mom for ALWAYS giving the best advice and always being ready to talk. Thanks to Sam for a text that totally made my day, thanks to Jon for helping me way more than he needed to, thanks to my amazing friends here who always lift me up. Thanks to my amazing FHE brothers and my other brothers who make me feel happy and important. To the girls in my Relief Society who make me feel like I can do anything, and make me want to be better. And a special thanks to my best friend who always makes time for me, always says the perfect thing, and makes me feel so supported even when he’s so busy.
I know I’m not the best at being the change I want to see in the world, but it’s something I’m going to work on. Starting with not complaining about the snow, and being supportive of everyone I love.
On a side note, these things happened:
