To me these are all words that describe members of our church.
We are committed. We work hard at what we do. And we are all in. 

I like this video because it reminds me to live life to the fullest.
We all have different roles in the church and in life. But whatever your role, give it all you've got.
Whether you're the stake president or the ward librarian, magnify your calling to the fullest extent.
Whatever you decide to do with your life, do it with full force.

"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way." -Napoleon Hill 

Your life will take so many turns. It will not take the exact route you planned on it taking, probably not even close.
But if you want to be able to look back on your life with fondness, you have to be powerful and confident and throw yourself into whatever work you take up.
Whatever trial comes your way, look it straight in the eye and don't back down.

This is how you can live a happy and fulfilled life.
This is how you can find joy in the journey, even when things don't go your way.

"If you must leave, leave as though fire burns under your feet."
"If you must speak, speak every word as though it were unique."
"If you must fight, fight with yourself and your faults in the night."
"If you must work, work to leave some part of you on this earth."
"And if you must live, darling, well, just live."

Hopefully the video seemed relevant. I just thought it was neat.

Happy Weekend!
Remember who you are!

I can't seem to load this particular video. :(

However, since I feel that I am not destined for GREAT things, I DO love the idea of doing small things in a GREAT way. There was a time when I was assigned to be the chorister in sacrament meeting. There really was not a lot I could do to be "great" at that decided to memorize all the words/verses to each of the songs every Sunday. I never had to look in my book. I could look out at the congregation and encourage them to sing simply by looking at them. A great side benefit was that I am now quite proficient in the hymns...not bad. Small things in a great way! I'm bummed that I can't watch the video. I'll re-visit to see if something changes for me. Love you, sweet girl!

Hmm, I wonder why you can't see the video. Well it's from vimeo instead of youtube, for one, so that's probably the difference, but it's worked for me and I know it at least worked for Sis. Neal.
Here is the direct link, if you want to try it, though I don't know if it would help. But you could try!

xoxo, Haley
