Making Memories

As you get older the things we find most precious change.  For many of us, we tend to pursue things that bring us the greatest joy.  What I value most is a good laugh, time spent with family and friends, moments, travel, things that warm my soul.  I had an abundance this past weekend.  Whether it be a game of cards, the opening of a mission call, making of yummies, the eating of those yummies, a road trip, good food, cuddling with best friends, uncontrollable laughter or even a very close BYU game and showing the kids some old school BYU cheers from our days at the Y.  These are the precious moments that we seek after.  I know there will come a day, hopefully many years away, that these memories will fade for me.  However, it is with an absolute confidence that those I created them with will continue the journey of making many more.  It has been our greatest goal in life to pass along the legacy of joy.  Cherish that which matters most and you will never be left wanting.  ❤️

  

Friends

I am just personally grateful for many great friends. What makes a friend ? Someone that takes joy in your good fortune. They hold your hand and cry with you during hard times. They sing, cry, dance, and spend time with you. They do not judge and they defend you when others do. True and loyal friends are more valuable than the riches of the world because they bring happiness. Be that kind of friend to someone. I love you guys that are my friends.

Happiness

I think there are two things in this world that would immediately make people more happy.  One is not money.  Money does not bring lasting happiness although I will admit it is nice to have and painful to be without.  But tonight I wanted to talk about two things that make all the difference in the world.  First is just be kind to others.  Smile at people.  Smile and laugh whenever possible.  There is something that happens to us by just being kind.  I am a big believe in Karma.  What you put out comes back 100 fold.  Look for opportunities to bring joy into anothers life and your life will be full of happiness.  Now this little trick requires us to look outside of ourselves.  Be a little less selfish.  But in most cases kindness is free to give, doesn’t really take much time, and the return is huge.  The second way in my opinion to bring happiness is have a whole bunch more SEX.  If your married and your not having sex at least 2 or 3 times a week you need to step up your game.  Sex brings you closer, its intimate, fun, releases endorphins and makes you happy.  It is pleasurable and helps us deal with stress.  Sex makes you happy. I think it would do us all some good to have way more sex.  Can you imagine what the world we live in would be like if there was more sex.  It would be way easier to smile.  🙂  Be kind and make sure you are spending some quality time playing in bed.
