Hey everyone! Its been a while since I have posted something and that's just because I started to get lazy about writing when I got home from my mission. An update on my trip home. My flights got delayed for a long time as I was going through Denver but it ...

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else---the small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.' The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.

Per +Mormon Newsroom  In a move to expand the opportunities for young members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to serve full-time missions, Church president Thomas S. Monson announced today that, effective immediately, men may now begin serving at age 18 and women at age 19. http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/church-lowers-age-requirement-for-missionary-service

America needs to wake up! We are way worse than we were 4 years ago. We need to get government out of the way of the American people. Qualitative easements are killing the value of our money and causing skyrocketing prices. Printing money does not help the economy, just look at Germany's economy after ww2 and many other countries who did what were are doing. It is a very dangerous path that we are headed down and it needs to end now! #RomneyRyan

Life is not complicated. people just make it so

Pocket Princesses by Amy Mebberson
I've followed +Amy Mebberson's "Pocket Princesses" series for a while on amymebberson.tumblr.com and I thought I'd share them with you. These cute and amusing comics are focused on funny/weird interactions between the Disney princesses with their individual quirks.
