This week my friend who I trained on a two year mission just arrived home. It caused me to reflect that I have been back in America for ten months now. Much has happened in these ten months. Yet I always wonder what more I could be doing with my life.
Elder Thompson who got home this Wednesday is going to be going through a transition into non-missionary life. It was something many people here in the Provo area go through. I remember on the mission Elder Thompson and I would talk about life back home. What we had done, and what we planned on doing. We imagined what it would be like. Two years is a long time.
It is really interesting to me to see how things have changed. I am in the thick of life with classes and such that I rarely take time to have a good reflective view on my life as I had did the mission. I think that it is really important to always take a good inventory of our lives and our goals. I want to more regularly consider the larger scope of my life. To not get so lost in the thousands of things that I have to do. If we take our lives in perspective more often I think that we can plan for, and end up having more meaningful lives.
