There is so much that I don't know. I don't know what will happen tomorrow, I don't know what will happen next week,  I don't know my major, I don't know when I'll get married, I don't know a lot about the Gospel, I don't know what trials will come my way.

I just don't know.

Yes, I'll know some things eventually but I've realized that there are some things that I won't ever know. And you know, I'm kind of okay with that. Don't get me wrong, not knowing what will happen can be scary. One of my friends got into a car accident the other day and that has really put things into perspective. This life is a gift and it made me think: How well have I been using my gift? What have I done to help people? When was the last time I told my family that I loved them?
Sadly, I don't think I've done a lot of good. I've been so wrapped up in me me me. My homework, my plans for the weekend, my to-do list. College is important and a very high priority right now but I haven't really been taking advantage of this time in my life right now. I've been so caught up in where I'll end up rather than enjoying the ride of "right now."
I have so much to be grateful for. I'm glad to be alive, I'm extremely grateful my friend is alive, I love being able to study at a university where other people share the same beliefs, and I'm grateful for myself. My body is capable of so much and my mind is stretched on a daily basis.
I haven't really decided on what steps I'm going to take to help me appreciate my life in the "right now" but it's going to happen. Life is precious. That's all for now :)
