Rather than focus on things that dampen your thoughts with sorrow, choose to focus on those things that fill your soul with hope.”   “Remember that there is “a time to weep” but also “a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.” If your heart has been heavy for a while, perhaps it is time to allow the light of the Son of God into your heart.

“If we, like President Monson, exercise our faith and look to God for help, we will not be overwhelmed with the burdens of life. We will not feel incapable of doing what we are called to do or need to do. We will be strengthened, and our lives will be filled with peace and joy. We will come to realize that most of what we worry about is not of eternal significance—and if it is, the Lord will help us. But we must have the faith to look up and the courage to follow His direction.” Carl B. Cook

President Gordon B. Hinckley has counseled the women of the Church: “Rise to the great potential within you. I do not ask that you reach beyond your capacity. I hope you will not nag yourselves with thoughts of failure. I hope you will not try to set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve. I hope you will simply do what you can do in the best way you know. If you do so, you will witness miracles come to pass.” 

God expects you to have enough faith, determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing.  In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future, He expects you to embrace and shape the future—to love it, rejoice in it, and delight in your opportunities. 

God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has.  But He can’t if you don’t pray, and He can’t if you don’t dream.  In short, He can’t if you don’t believe.   ~~Jeffrey R. Holland

…one of the tricks of the devil:  To get possession of you and keep you from knowing  it. ~~George Albert Smith

Elder Orson F. Whitney once said: “The spirit of the gospel is optimistic; it trusts in God and looks on the bright side of things.  The opposite or pessimistic spirit drags men down and away from God, looks on the dark side, murmurs, complains, and is slow to yield obedience.”  We should honor the Savior’s declaration to “be of good cheer.” (Indeed, it seems to me we may be more guilty of breaking that commandment than almost any other!)  Speak hopefully.  Speak encouragingly, including about yourself.  Try not to complain and moan incessantly.  ~~Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

…there is an opportunity for you to become great—just as great as you wish to be.  In starting out in life you may set your hearts upon things very difficult to attain to, but possibly within your reach.  In your first efforts to gratify your desires you may fail, and your continued efforts may not prove what may be termed a success.  But inasmuch as your efforts were honest efforts, and inasmuch as your desires were founded in righteousness, the experience you obtain while pursuing your hearts’ desires must necessarily be profitable to you, and even your mistakes, if mistakes you make, will be turned to your advantage.  ~~Lorenzo Snow

Each new day that dawns can be a new day for us to begin to change. We can change our environment. We can change our lives by  substituting new habits for old. We can mold our character and future by purer thoughts and nobler actions. As someone once put it,  “The possibility of change is always there, with its hidden promise of peace, happiness, and a better way of life.”  James E Faust

Since the foundation of all happiness is thinking rightly, and since correct action is dependent on correct opinion, we cannot be too careful in choosing the value system we allow to govern our thoughts and actions. –Benjamin Franklin

We need not feel that we must forever be what we presently are. –Marvin J Ashton

No amount of time in front of the mirror will make you as attractive as having the Holy Ghost with you.– Sheri Dew

Unlike releasing a helium balloon, spiritually looking up is not a one-time experience. – Elder Carl B. Cook

President Monson’s encouragement to look up is a metaphor for remembering Christ. As we remember Him and trust in His power, we receive strength through His Atonement. — Elder Carl B. Cook
