The question of the year if you know what I mean. (Honestly I dont even know what I mean because I am so weird. Nothing has changed lol.) But for real HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We rang in the New Year with matching nighties, pigtails, pizza, Monopoly, bed hopping, and pillow fights. How white girl? It was a night to remember that's for sure. I remember last year I tweeted "I hope my 2015 will be like Taylor Swift's 2014" because she really killed it and became herself. HOLLA! I hope that I can continue finding myself this year. I now have less than a year left here in the mission and I have an idea of what I am doing (kinda lol) and the language is getting there. Honestly I can understand almost everything in the lessons when it is churchie and probably like seventy-five percent of the time outside of church talk(50% is probably more honest haha). But honestly this is the best decision of my life. I know I am just going to keep growing. Sometimes I get anxious to get home just because I want to see how BLESSED my life can be fully living the gospel on a day to day basis. I think we all know I was a little "flojo" or what my fav Bishop Greg Madsen would call "slack-tive" in the church. I have learned so much here and seen so many blessings as a full-time missionary, now I just want to get home and be a full-time member so I can see the blessings of the gospel in my life. But that being said, I am grateful that I still have a year to learn and grow even more.
This week while we got ready we listened to this talk https://speeches.byu.edu/talks/brad-wilcox_his-grace-is-sufficient/ and omg drop what you are doing right this very second and go read it. Honeslty one of the most EYE OPENING talks of my life. Wow shoutout to my mom for the practice lines haha. Honestly though this week I have been thinking A LOT about how I am practicing my faith and showing Jesus Christ that I am thankful for all He has given me. We were sitting in a lesson and we were talking about our attitudes. We were teaching in lessons because my Heavenly Father loves me enough to have put me in an area where there are a couple people who lived in the states before. So we were talking about having a positive attitude and we shared in Philippians 2 13-16 which reads
All the love,
