I've been kind of down this past week--homesick, unmotivated, apprehensive about post-graduation life. And then the lessons in church hit home, and as I sat in Relief Society listening to a girl sing "Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me," tears ran down my cheeks as I re-realized who I am. The lesson in Relief Society yesterday was about how we are children of God. That's something I've never forgotten exactly, but a truth that I too often lose the magnitude of. It's truly incredible that we are children of God--I am a literal daughter of a divine being, a Heavenly Father. Re-realizing who I am made all the difference for me. I can't start making my own happiness without that foundation. Again, I've never questioned that or doubted my heritage, but I don't always realize how marvelous that heritage is.
Step one to making my own happiness: "I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me, and I love him" (LDS Young Women Theme).
