"Finding Joy in the Journey"

I read President Monson's conference talk this morning titled, "Finding Joy in the Journey". The entire talk is beautiful, but he shared a quote that I loved so much, I wanted to post it.

"Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend...when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature, and personal pursuits that bring us [happiness]-the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth."
~Sarah Ban Breathnach (quoted by Thomas S. Monson)

How can life be anything but fulfilling, when we are led by a prophet who helps us understand what is really important and where our focus should lie? How blessed we are. ~J
