My sister Mikele shared this amazing talk with us a while ago. I especially love the story it starts out with:
Elder Wirthlin shared three characteristics that the happiest people he knows have in common. "They are qualities that can transform ordinary existence into a life of excitement and abundance." (Added some of my notes)
1. They drink deeply of living waters.
-Pray, believe, develop unshakeable faith, fill my mind with a knowledge of Him.
2. They fill their hearts with love.
-The greatest commandment. Am I truly loving ALL around me?
3. They, with the help of their Heavenly Father, create a masterpiece of their lives.
-Create something remarkable of my life.
-We were created by GOD.
-Every one of us has potential we can scarcely imagine.
