No Limits

I learned something recently that I feel I should share.

I like to look back on the time I was in high school, and for the most part it was amazing. I had some of the best friends in the world, great opportunities, and amazing support from my parents, and teachers.

However, also when I look back I can see all the things I missed. My mom always says, "Hindsight is 20/20." Looking back, there are things that I regret. I have also learned from my mom that we should live without regrets, meaning do all of the things that you know you should, and can do, and be happy with that; and then you can live without the constant thought that you could have done better.

I know now from looking back with my 20/20 vision, that my regrets come from the restrictions I put on myself. No one put them there but me. The restrictions I placed upon myself were my weight and body size. I thought that because I was too big, that I would never be able to do certain things.

I know now that this is not true. Who has the right to tell me that I can't do something; No one. Not even me. No one, not even I know all that I can achieve. The only being that has all knowledge is willing to guide me but even He won't control me and tell me what to do. He still gives me a choice.

So I have decided to live without any more regrets. If I feel the urge to climb a mountain, I will not let anything stop me. I am a Daughter of the Most High God and He believes in me. He also believes in you.

I hope that the things I have learned can help others. Do not limit yourself because of weight, ability, or anything else. Do not let anyone tell you that you can't do something, their opinion does not matter. In reality, you are the only person that completely controls what you will or will not do.

I give to you a challenge, Live without any regrets. Follow what you know is good. Be true to who you are, A Child of the Most High God.

Conference Weekend

I love General Conference! I love the feeling I get after listening to the Apostles and the Prophet. It is such a blessing for me to know that they speak the word of God.

Another thing I love about conference: I get to spend time with my family! I love my mom, my dad, and all three of my little sisters. This weekend I got to help Kenzie and Amanda organize their clothes. It was fun to hear their stories while helping them clean their rooms. They are growing up so fast. To me the most important part was being able to help.

One other thing I love about Conference, my testimony is always strengthened. I know that my Heavenly Father is mindful of me and those I love. He does answer prayers, and concerns. We just need to be willing to ask in faith, and then follow in faith. What a blessing it is to have a Heavenly Father watching over us.
