It is funny how something small and insignificant can change ones perspective. Life is never easy. Never has been, never will be. That much I know, but life and its events can change ones perspective. I have always been somewhat of a pessimist. Just my nature. I was always quick to judge instead of seeing what I need to see first and then making the judgement. Or hearing what I needed to hear and than making a judgement. Life and its imperfections have made me change my perspective. Take what I have and make it what I can, good or bad.
Instead of feeling anxious and nervous, I have a calm that I have never experienced. I can only hope that this change of heart and spirit might continue. I'm not perfect by any means, don't think I will be ever, but I can strive to make myself perfect enough that someone will see me in a different light and question my change, that I might be able to change their life and perspective as well.
I live for the gospel of Jesus Christ, I live for my family, and I live to spend eternity with them. Nothing is more important than this.
