Just do it!

Nike just nailed it when they came up with the "JUST DO IT" theme. So simple and yet, so powerful and true! Why don't we just DO the things we say we're going to? Or just DO the things we know are right? 

I've been so frustrated with myself lately. Because I feel like I have a good head on my shoulders and I know what's up ... :) ... but I think that sometimes I can be a lot of talk. I always say what I think I should be doing, or what I think is good to do, or whatever it may be...but I need to DOOOOO it! If I say, hmmm...I need to start thinking about what I want to do when I graduate, I need to do that. hmmm....I need to stay in touch with my family better, I need to do that. If I say hmmm...I need to do better on my math next math test, I need to DO THAT! The list goes on and on. 

If we want to be successful in life, we need to do the things we say we're going to do.

Life is good!

Found a great scripture today. It's one of those where you have heard it a million times and you're always like, "Oh, how nice." but then you really READ it and ponder and hits you like a ton of bricks!

D&C 88:67
And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things. 

WOW! Look at that! Read it again! 
"Eye single to my glory" - that means we are 100% following Christ. We want nothing more than to do His will and do what is right. Nothing else. Our desire is purely to follow our Savior. 
"bodies shall be filled with light" - That doesn't just mean knowledge and truth...that means we will be warm and peaceful inside. FILLED with goodness. What an awesome feeling. We won't have ANY darkness in us. We won't ever have to feel dirty, we'll be clean and pure. 
"Comprehendeth all things" - This part is what hit me. No more confusion, no more dilemma, drama, or crap! We will know what's best for us and for others. What an incredible blessing! and all this comes just from having a true desire to do God's will and following Him. That's an amazing promise.
