Finding Joy in The Journey

"Day by day, minute by minute, second by second we went from where we were to where we are now. The lives of all of us, of course, go through similar alterations and changes. The difference between the changes in my life and the changes in yours is only in the details. Time never stands still; it must steadily march on, and with the marching come the changes. This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone. I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now."

-Thomas S. Monson, Finding Joy in The Journey, Oct. 2008 General Conference-

If you ever need to remember what matters most in the hustle and bustle of life, I recommend listening to or reading this talk at least once a month. Doing this has blessed my life and this talk has so many wonderful truths and reminders in it that we could all use.
