Loving the haters

Sometimes people are going to hurt you. Honest to goodness straight faced pain. They will tell you they care, but show in their actions that they are anything but caring. Then they make you believe that they are worth all the bad; the smallest glimpse of goodness will suffice. Well here's the thing:

They are worth it. 
Everyone is. The pain they cause you won't go away, until you've accepted to love them anyways. This does not mean that you should spend all of your time with them, in-fact you should spend as little time with them as possible. 
When you feel yourself thinking hateful spiteful thoughts, stop them, and replace them with love. Think of that person and force yourself to wish them happiness. If you can do this, then you have guaranteed yourself happiness. Because when you try to punish them, you are only punishing yourself.
"I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men." 
-Doctrine and Covenants 64:10

Sister Commeree

"You have been called to serve"...:)

Aren't those the most wonderful words you've ever read? I adore them.

So in case you didn't know, I am overjoyed to announce that I have been called to serve as a missionary of the United States of..I mean the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints(I really said that when I was reading my call I was so in shock). I have been called to the Reno Nevada mission and I leave May 29th!

So a couple cool facts about my mission
1. My favorite seminary teacher of all time will be in the mission presidency in my mission!!
2. Lake Tahoe is super close by.
3. I just got in contact with a girl in my stake who leaves the same day as me. We are destined to be friends.
4. I can visit my mission and keep all the connections I make because it's so close by.

The funny thing is when I tell people Reno, they have that two second face reaction of "Oh that sucks" and then catch themselves and get all excited and say how wonderful Reno will be.

I won't lie Reno wasn't my first choice. But when I read it, I could feel that it was right. I can just feel like it is exactly where I'm supposed to be. I can't wait it's ridiculous. But I'm trying to finish finals and move home while only given less than 6 weeks to prepare. So I have SO much to do. If you would like to see me beforehand I'd love to spare some time for you :).

Everyone waiting for the big moment!
