"It's like that dude Journey said, 'Don't stop believing...unless your dream is stupid. Then you should get a better dream.' I think that's how it goes..."
I love this video with my whole heart and I would just die of delight if this boy would agree to be my son. I have watched this video almost every day for weeks. Because we really do all need a pep talk, right? I especially need a pep talk.
We all have times in our lives that are taxing and require great faith. Making decisions is hard! Especially when the decision could impact the rest of your life. But God won't leave you alone in these times (or any other times). If you're struggling with something, open your ears, open your eyes, open your heart, and you'll realize that God is sending you little hints. He will guide you (mine has been more of a nudge, really) in the right direction. Little things. Here are a few hints he's sent me in the past couple days.
My beautiful and wonderful friend Emily put this quote on her blog today. "Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith." -Margaret Shepard
I opened a book to a random page and read this quoted scripture, "If you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart...Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?" -Doctrine & Convenants 6:22-23
On Monday someone said to me, "Don't let fear be the reason you don't do something." I've been thinking about that ever since. And guess what? I have let fear control my life far too many times. I think about things I haven't done in my life and they all come back to my being afraid.
So what I'm trying to say is, take a leap of faith (to be said in the voice of elderly Leo DiCaprio via Inception). Don't let fear be the reason you don't do something. And ask God for help. He'll guide (nudge) you. Get out there and DO SOMETHING. Why? Because, "This is life people! You've got air coming through your nose, you've got a heartbeat. That means it's time to do something!"
