my life in instagram

here are some snapshots from the lovely app we like to call instagram. 
life is full. tough. happy. good. bad. 
sometimes i am super positive. 
sometimes (like at this particular moment) i feel discouraged. 
that's just the way life is. 
i am trying really hard to think about the good things. 
i read this last night. 
i needed to read that. 

a few of my favorite thoughts: 

"None of us is without sin. Every one of us makes mistakes, including you and me. 
We have all been wounded. We all have wounded others."

"God will help us to be more forgiving, to be more willing to walk the second mile, to be first to apologize even if something wasn’t our fault, to lay aside old grudges 
and nurture them no more."

"In the end, happiness does not spring from perfection but from applying divine principles, even in small steps."

so i'll keep on keepin' on. trying to do those little things that seem so easy to forget, but upon which my happens depends. i'll read. i'll pray. i'll try to forgive more easily. i'll go to the temple. i'll keep teaching those crazy primary kids. i'll do my visiting teaching.
i'll do it all. 
and i'll do it because i know that when i do, i'm happier. simple as that.

Teaching the primary kid is a great way for me to feel like I am doing something good in the world, haha! As hard as it is to get to church sometimes, after church I am always so glad I went. I love all the pictures!
