"In order to have joy, you need to understand that, as a child of your Heavenly Father, you inherited divine traits and spiritual needs - and just like a fish needs water, you need the gospel and the companionship of the Holy Ghost to be truly, deeply happy. Because you are the offspring of God, [whether you believe it or not, you are], it is incompatible with your eternal nature to do wrong and feel right. It cannot be done. It is part of your spiritual DNA, as it were, that peace, joy, and happiness will be yours only to the degree you live the gospel."

- Sometimes I think back on who I used to be and wonder how I got here today. I know that at some point, I had the innocence of a child in my eyes. Along with "growing up", in the midst of all the wonder and excitement, came people and circumstances that hurt me. Yes they may have taken away that sparkling innocence in my eyes, but there is no other way to become a real person. I would rather know pain so that I may know joy. I would rather witness the bad in people so that I may appreciate the good.
While I realize that I'm not the carefree little girl I once was, I laugh more often now, I cry more often now (maybe not literally), I am more me.
