As a note: I have only written a total of 4 blog posts this summer. This will be number 5. Honestly, I'm a little appalled that with this being by far my busiest and most fulfilling summer yet, I have written about it the least.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
I think I am approaching the point in my life where I can see what my immediate purpose is. I believe very strongly that my Father in Heaven put me here for a reason, and that everything happens for a reason.
Why I am I in Centerville, Utah?
After much personal thought and prayers, and having some truly beautiful discussions with my friends, both old and new, I think I've come closer to an answer than I have ever before.
I think that I am to be the change that I wish to see in the world.
Maybe that is a principle that should be universal, and I believe it is. However, I think in my specific circumstance, it is the primary reason for why I am where I am today.
In other news, I went with my family to the Brigham City LDS Temple open house yesterday! I enjoyed it very much, both from a religious perspective and an architectural one.
I am also working (maybe not as hard as I should be) on my AP summer reading list. While it is only two books, between work, a massive month long vacation and visiting family, I haven't had much time to work on it. Consequently, I am trying to make progress on getting through these books. In order to do so, I have taken my studies outside, into my backyard. I set up my litter reading chair in a nook between bushes, and began to read and type.
It actually has a rather nice view! The greenery is so very comforting.
I love each and everyone of you. And that, I honestly believe, is my sole and only purpose to be here. To learn to love each and everyone of you as unconditionally as possible.
Good night, and toodles!
