Living a life that is full of regret is one of my biggest fears. I am an optimist and perfectionist, and I hate the idea of things going southward and not working out how I anticipated. I always want to be making decisions that will hold meaning in my life and have a positive impact on me and those around me. It has taken me awhile to work through this fear of mine and I’m definitely still working through it, but there are a few things that I have come to learn when it comes to accepting the times when life doesn’t quite fall into place.
Many, if not all, people have experienced the common cold. There are very obvious symptoms, including coughing, runny nose, sore throat, etc. It is easy to sympathize with people who have a cold because you have, most likely, experienced the same exact symptoms and know how annoying it is to be stuck with a cold. The cure for the cold is pretty simple and well-known, too. With rest, medicine, and some warm chicken noodle soup, you can overcome a cold pretty quickly.
However, there are things in life that aren’t as well-known or as easy to understand. Few people understand what it’s like to feel to be paralyzed from the waist down, what it’s like to have stage four cancer, or what it’s like to have a rare disease with no known cure. There are plenty of things that we just will not be capable of understanding or overcoming.
Am I the only one who is completely in awe that we have a living prophet on the earth today? I mean, you read about all these ancient prophets in the Bible and it doesn't seem like it'd be possible for us to have people capable of doing the same exact things that they did. However, we have one of those prophets here today who is just like they were! I think that is amazing.
There is nothing that quite compares to the crisp of the air on a cool October day, or the satisfaction of stepping on a pile of crunchy leaves. While I am quite sad that summer is over, I am thrilled that fall has arrived! I always feel very peaceful when I see the leaves on the trees change from their summer green to autumn red. Along with the trees changing, the music that I listen to changes as I transition from upbeat summer pop to the more relaxed indie songs that I typically associate with fall. Here is a list of some of my favorite songs to listen to during the season. I hope you enjoy this list of songs that are perfect for a laid-back, fall morning.
