i just love a quote that makes you literally stop...and think about what you just read.

this morning i read this little excerpt from a talk by one of the leaders of my church and i loved it! it gave me a much needed reminder me that i can do/accomplish/create/achieve/become anything i want....

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create. You don't need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.
Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty...
...Remember that you are spirit daughters of the most creative Being in the universe. Isn't it remarkable to think that your very spirits are fashioned by an endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God? Think about it-- your spirit body is a masterpiece, created with a beauty, function, and capacity beyond imagination."

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
