This is my jam!

Not only is this hymn catchy, but it's full of legitness. This song has been stuck in my head for about three months and 12 days now. There's probably good reason to it. [Italics added]

Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.
Has anyone's burden been lighter today
Because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?
There are chances for work all around just now,
Opportunities right in our way.
Do not let them pass by, saying, "Sometime I'll try,"

But go and do something today.
'Tis noble of man to work and to give;
Love's labor has merit alone.
Only he who does something 
helps others to live.
To God each good work will be known.
Then wake up! 
And do something more 
than dream of your mansion above! 
Doing good is a pleasure, 
a joy beyond measure. 
A blessing of duty and love! 

Questions to ask yourself daily:
  1. What is my purpose today? (Honestly, besides going through the motions, why did God wake me up this morning?)
  2. How can I be better today than I was yesterday? (It sounds silly, but if this isn't something you think about often, you're simply not progressing). 
I'm a firm believer that by turning outward we can find inner peace.
I've seen time and time again... people that focus on themselves are the most MISERABLE people ever. I'm serious. They wallow in self pity simply because that's all they ever think about. The opposite is also true. People that serve others, and spend time helping others along their way, are the HAPPIEST people on earth. Focusing on and helping others, helps us.


On another note, here's something kind of random that is interesting to think about.
These two points that make total sense! I dare you to try and prove one wrong.
  1. Pride is the root of all sin. 
  2. All sin is selfish.
Something we learned in Relief Society. Pretty cool.

Okay I'm going to fall alseep.

Until next time,
buenas noches!
