(100 weeks in the mission field) Week # 77 Cuantos Años Tengo Realmente
this week in Elders Quorum I was super impacted by the lesson. The last
couple of days I have really been thinking about the life I've lived
thus far and what type of person I'm going to be in the future.
In Spanish when you ask someone how old they are you say "cuantos años
tienes?" (how many years do you have) and people always say" I have 21
years" or whatever. But, in reality we don't have any years. We only have
the amount of time that we have left to live. I feel like we focus on
how much time we´ve wasted or how old we are instead of thinking about
what we can do with the time we have left.
As Priesthood holders, and all members of the church we have a huge
responsibility to be worthy at all times, and to bless all around us. In
my 2 years here in Mexico I have seen miracles happen on the daily, and
it's opened my eyes to whats possible when we live in the moment. But, not
just live in the moment, but to take advantage of every moment and live
it to the fullest.
Like I said it hit me hard
and made me want to do better in my everyday life. I hope that you guys
can find a way to apply it to your own lives and truly take advantage of
