How Could I go Wrong?

I come from good stalk. I have big shoes to fill.It is no secret that I married up.I met Lex in the 8th grade and she is my better half, an expression that has roots in a court of law, according to The Little Book of Answers.
I do not want to hang out my dirty laundry here, but I did go wrong. I look at Lex and tell her that I do not understand what I was doing with my life before the accident and I guess that it is a good thing that it does not make any sense- so that I do not have to make the same mistakes again. Here's to living and learning.

Some settling my occur

after a General Conference like the one that just ended. I am reeling from the spiritual feast. I am not sure where to even start and am very excited for the November ENSIGN, so that I can study the talks more. I could not help but feel CHAMPION when President Uchtdorf shared his thoughts on being CHAMPION. I mentioned this to the therapist that I worked with today, Amy smiled broadly and told me that I could start telling people that he(President Uchdorf) was quoting me! I told her that I couldn't go that far. I am concerned with my own salvation and cannot take upon me everyone else's.
My twin brother Matthew brought me over a copy of his talk and Elder Holland's. I am grateful to have modern day Prophets and Apostle who are in tune with the needs of modern time.

Return with Honor: Mission Memoires#4

I was transferred from el Coviefe in Antofagasta to Arica, a resort city and the northern point of my mission bordering Peru. I was Elder Pew's companion. He was the zone leader and wanted me to work to keep up with him. He has tremendous faith that was contagious. missionary work was joyous to do with him because of it.He taught me that to truly love someone you serve them. Thank you for loving and serving me Elder Pew.Right when I thought that my mission couldn't get any better, it did and I became Elder Moses' companion.As well as the importance of making goals and putting in the work to reach them He looked like my twin, people called us 11 because we were both tall and skinny. He taught me that the Lord's work was something enjoyable, when you smiled while doing it. If I had a triplet, it would be you Collin Moses

DNR VS DAR(Do Always Resuscitate)

I have learned and grown so much in the past three years, I still have a long way to go. Here's to continuing with 'Joy in the Journey.'
Life has so much to teach me, that sounds slightly more positive than I have a lot to learn. Just like relearning to walk: I do fine as long as I take it one step at a time. Nothing profoundly earth shattering here.

"Dream big. . .

as big as the ocean"-from a unknown song, anyone out there want to help me with my source on this one? I have always wanted to save the world.I never imagined that it would be like this and who's to say that my ramblings will have any effect on it? .Keep hope alive and keep going. Dreams are worth it.My Pa wrote to me while on my mission in Chile to give people the best possible brush with the Gospel light. That is my hope and dream with my ramblings.
 I remember a friend in high school asking me what made me happy? My response to Missy Ward is still: When others are happy.I know that happiness is found by living up to our standards and serving others.I am happy, a work in process and excited to be on this journey.
I was chatting with Sarah, a PT student at Neuroworx and she told me that I could be a motivational speaker. I have been told this before at Neuroworx by Terri, maybe that is why I keep going back to put up with their torture/therapy -they play into my CHAMPION narcissism. I laughed at Sarah and told her that I went home and told my wife that when Terri told me that and that my wife replied, "yes, you could be a motivational speaker 8 days out of ten." Sarah laughed at that, telling me that,"that should still work, you don't have to have speeches everyday of the week." who knows, my dream is to do something that will always keep me learning and growing, for now that is being Mr. Mom at home.

It's relative

I went through a phase when this was how I would answer the question, "How are you doing Curtis?"
I also answered,when I wasn't feeling 100%, that, I have been better, but I have been far worse.
In 'How to Stop Worrying and Start Living,' the author quotes John Milton saying, "It is not miserable to be blind, it is miserable not to be able to endure being blind."
