The Same Hardships as Everyone Else

Almost 2 months ago, I learnt from one of my Best Friends that we suffer from the same hardships as everyone else. I would like to add, we also aren't perfect in this life. We both have the same religion but that doesn't make us perfect.  
It is normal to have days to feel down and the other days to feel happy. I don't expect anyone to be perfect. I would like people to acknowledge the differences of their emotions and use it wisely at the right time and in the right place. 

"I would like to share my Testimony with you. I know that we all go through hardship times, trails, struggles and tribulations; that's just apart of life. All religious people that you know and you think they are perfect, well they aren't perfect either. 

I encourage you to seek help and guidance from Heavenly Father/God through prayer when you are going through hardship times. He will help us to get through those times when we put our trust and faith in him.

I leave these things are true, In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Stay tuned until next time.

Today's Church Experience at Brassall Ward

I attended Brassall Ward with my Dad this morning and it was a good day.
You may ask me "Why was it a good day today?"

My answer is, The moment after my Dad handshook the Sister Missionaries in Brassall Ward to walk in and as I was hugging a Sister Missionary and my friend Sister Grawrock was surprised. 

She mentioned something like "Megan, I finally get to meet you. How are you?" I was so surprised because of her reaction. I hugged her other companion as she has two companions. I am sure it has made her morning.
Me and Sister Grawrock 
During Sacrament, I was able to see my Close Friend Sophia, she shared her little bit about her mission and her testimony. She served her mission in Sydney South Mission for the last 18 months. The only contact that me and her communicated during her mission was through emails.

I remembered mentioning "I miss you so much." through emails a lot. 
After Sacrament and after some members hugged her to welcomed her back home; it was so good to see her again after 18 months and chatted to her for awhile. 
Me and Sophia M
Sophia knows that I go to the Temple a lot and she suggested for me and her to do Temple Sessions together sometime. I immediately got happy and excited. I can't wait to go to the Temple with Sophia.

I even mentioned to her today that I got my licence, a manual licence. She seemed so happy that I got my licence. I remembered when she left for her mission, I was still on my learners. Wow, that just approves me how time went so fast. 

Within the next upcoming weeks, I will have a few other friends coming home from their 18 months missions who left either not long before or not long after Sophia left for her mission. I have been noticing that time has been going so fast when I am not keeping an eye on the time. 

I don't know if Sophia will ever read this post but if you are my Close Friend Sophia Manutulila, if you ever read this post; WELCOME HOME! 
That's all from me for now. Stay tuned until next time.

My Favourite Flavoured Potato Chips

I am just guessing that almost everyone likes Flavoured Potato Chips more than Flavoured Plain Potato Chips, am I right? I could be wrong.

You may ask me "What are your Favourite Flavoured Potato Chips?"
I have 3 Favourite Flavoured Potato Chips.

Honey Soy Chicken Chips because I always loved and still love the taste of it. I don't understand why I do. However I started loving that type of Chips when I was 15 years old.

I would reckon it to anyone who isn't allergic to any of the ingredients.
Salt and Vinegar Chips because I always liked it. Don't get me started. I can't even remember when I started liking that type of Chips. Haha! I was being serious.
Light and Tangy Chips because I always liked it. It has a nice taste. Again, don't get me started. I can't even remember when I started liking that type of Chips. Haha! I was being serious again.
What are your Favourite Flavoured Potato Chips?
Have I mentioned any of your Favourites?

My Favourite Shows

For the last 2 years, I haven't been watching much TV. It's no surprise. 
You may ask me "Why is that so?" Please respect my answer. 

My Answer is: I chose not to watch TV. I was no longer interested to watch TV because I would rather use my time wisely by doing something else instead. I used to watch 2 shows and they are "The Following" and "Arrow." 

The Following and Arrow was good shows. I enjoyed watching those 2 shows because it was Drama and has something to do with investigation and FBI.

You may ask me, "What are your Favourite Shows?" I have 3 Favourite Shows.

What Would You Do? because I love how the show is performed. The show has a few actors and actresses in a real life situation and someone comes up what they would do in the situation. Then towards the end of the situation after someone resolved it; a camera crew and the host comes to the people to ask "What would you do?" 

They always seemed shocked or amazed that the situation isn't really happening as it was actress and actors acting out.
20/20 because again I love how the show is performed. I don't know how to explain what it is about. I do enjoy watching the show.
The Truth About because again I loved how the show is performed. I always love learning new things each time I watch a new episode. It's a British show and it always indicates the truth about certain things that we could be eating or using everyday.

My Favourite Songs

Many thanks to my friend Emily L for giving me a suggestion to write a post about my Favourite Songs while mentioning about a few other suggestions.

You may ask me, "What are your Favourite Songs?" I have 3 Favourite Songs.

I Was Made For Loving You by Tori Kelly Featuring Ed Sheeran because I love the lyrics mentioned "Please don't go, I've been waiting so long." It means a lot to me by I could be waiting for so long for a right guy to love me.

Photograph by Ed Sheeran because I love the lyrics mentioned "Loving can hurt. Loving can hurt sometimes."

"Love requires everything of you. Love requires sacrifice and work and diligence and faithfulness. It is not an easy emotion." - Scott Braithwaite.

Best Friend by Jason Mraz because I love the lyrics mentioned "Thank you for all of your trust. Thank you for not giving up." I loved the tune of the song. I always appreciate my best friends for all of their trust and also for not giving up on me.

It Was a Good Day Yesterday

I had a good day yesterday. The Job Interview went good. After my Job Interview, I had to fill in some paperwork. The paperwork included my availability.

Also after my Job Interview, I was walking to my car. A random guy walked to me before I was about to unlock my car. He said, "Hey, I was walking around to ask people who has their Red P's if they were going for their Green P's soon. So are you going for your Green P's soon?"

I was happily to say "Yes I am going for my Green P's soon and I just finished a Job Interview." He gave me a set of Green P's plates and said, "Here's a set of Green P's for you to keep." I said, "Thank you very much."
I was very happy. As he went to continue his day and I continued my day, I drove to the Temple. I arrived at the Temple around 5:15pm. I attended a Baptistery Session with some YSAs from the YSA Ward/River Terrace Ward.

I love attending the Temple often. I love feeling peace and comfort when I go to the Temple. Stay tuned until next time.

Another Job Interview, After Almost 2 Months Waiting

It has been almost 2 months ago since my last Job Interview. 

The last Job Interview wasn't successful because I answered a few questions wrong. I felt discouraged and upset that I didn't job. When I arrived home, I stayed in the car for awhile.

My phone notified me that I got a unread email. I immediately start reading the email and I was smiling. I felt instant happiness and all thanks to that friend who emailed me to cheer me up.
I kept looking for jobs. I kept applying for jobs. I kept hoping that I will get a job one day and I had faith in Heavenly Father that things will work out when it is meant to be.

I accidentally applied for a same job for 5 times. At first, I was informed that I wouldn't get the job because I live too far away. I mentioned to the employer that I was happy to drive certain distance for work.

I received a phone call yesterday from the employer at a Pizza Hut that he apologised for not allowing me to get a job because I live too far away and he asked me when I will be available for a job interview. I mentioned "Tomorrow." He asked me "What time?" I mentioned "4:30pm."

He was pleased that I was ready for a Job Interview within a day notice.

Pizza Hut that is 25 minutes drive away from Brisbane City.
Pizza Hut is 45 minutes to 1 hour drive away from Home.
It's a Part-Time and Driver Delivery Position.

I really hope that I do get the job. Stay tuned until next time.

24 Months in Bangkok Thailand (W Voranaparit)

My friend Worapon got his mission call today. I chose not to go to his mission call opening. I was able to see 2 videos from 2 different friends who has recorded his mission call opening and it felt like that I was there.

I didn't know that he submitted his mission papers. It came to a surprise for me when he posted a photo on Facebook and the caption was "GUESSS WHAT!!!??! MY MISSION CALL IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!"

You may ask me "What is your guess where he might get called to serve?" My answer is, "I think he will get called to serve China and it was a random guess."
"Dear Elder Voranaparit:
You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labour in the Thailand Bangkok Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months. You should report to the New Zealand Missionary Training Center on Thursday, December 3, 2015. You will prepare to to preach the gospel in the Thai language."

I am so happy for him and I am sure that time will go so fast when he is keeping busy. Stay tuned until next time.

To Someone's Prayer

A short and sweet post.

I always wondered for myself if my prayer has an impact to anyone, more specifically "What if I could be the answer to someone's prayer?"

Don't you ever wondered about that too?

It always amazes me when I do mention the following in my prayers,
"Please help the Missionaries to find someone new during this week.
Please keep the Missionaries safe and protected while they are travelling.
Please soften the investigator or investigators's hearts to go to Church.

Please soften less actives or in-actives to come back to Church.
Please comfort those who are struggling and having a hard time at this time.
Please bless those who are sick, or afflicted or unwell at this time."
For those who was struggling, got comforted.
For those who was sick, got better.
For those who was afflicted, felt better. For those who was unwell, got better.

Stay tuned until next time.

Set Another Goal

A short and sweet post.

During most weeks, I always focused about various types of goals for myself.
I write down,think about and examine on my short term goals often.
I write down, think about and examine on my long term goals often.

I write down, think about and examine on my monthly goals often.
I write down, think about and examine on my yearly goals often.
I write down, think about and examine on my future goals often.
I don't like changing goals but it always good to change a goal straight away when things doesn't work out to lead to achieve that goal. Always remember when you set goals; mark them off when you have achieved each goal.

Always remember that you never too old to set another goal.

Happy Birthday Jordan C!

Throughout this blog post, there are photos of Jordan. 

Yesterday was my friend Jordan C's Birthday and I forgot to call her Mum to ask her if I could talk to Jordan over the phone to wish her a "Happy Birthday." She turned 11 years old yesterday.
I first met Jordan when I went to her house for a service project with Rockingham Ward Sister Missionaries while I was in Perth. I remembered spending a lot of time with Jordan and her sister Jade while I was in Perth. I enjoyed those times.

I remembered meeting a few or some of Jordan's school friends. I got to see them every time I pick up Jordan and her siblings after school finishes. I got asked a few questions from her friends such as, "Do you go to this school?" and "Are you Jordan's friend?"
Jordan always got excited to tell me how many days she has until her Birthday. It always got me excited because time was always going fast. Approaching my time to leave Perth, Jordan told me that she will have the room that I was staying in when I leave Perth. I think when she will have the room, it will make her miss me more.

Jordan, I know that you wouldn't be able to see this but I hope your Mum will show you this blog post. I wish you a "Happy Birthday and I hope that you had a great day!" I do miss you heaps. I do miss your sisters, your Mum and your brother heaps.
I really wanted to see you and your family for your Birthday as a surprise but it didn't ended up happening. I'm so sorry. I don't know when but I'm sure that one day, we will see each other again.

The photos was taken while I was in Perth. Stay tuned until next time.

Accept Me For Who I Am

We all made mistakes in the past. I could think of 3 ways to do with our past mistakes and I have listed them below.

1. We can ignore our past mistakes and try not to do those mistakes again.
2. We can forgive from our past mistakes.
3. We can learn from our past mistakes.
I don't like times when people have conversations about my past mistakes when I am present. I don't like being informed about when people talks about me in bad ways. I don't mind when people talk about me, but it has to be in nicer ways.

I already have forgiven about my past mistakes and trying to allow myself not to do those same mistakes again. I would like people to accept for who I am today, and not judge me by my past. I like moving on from my past mistakes because I can get along with my life a lot easier.

After writing this post, I think for anyone who reads this post can relate to this somehow. I hope you learnt something new while reading this post.

Feel free to share with me any of your suggestions of what I could write a blog post about. Stay tuned until next time.

Keep Your Head Up, Keep Your Heart Strong

I love a song called, "Keep Your Head Up" by Ben Howard. I do realise sometimes in life that we don't feel like keeping our head up whenever we go through tough times, trails, tribulations and struggles in life. We need to accept every challenges that we do face in life.

For example, one day you might look back at some challenges that you have faced during your time in schooling and might say "It may seem bad of going through challenges back then but now when I see it, it's all worth it. It has helped me to prepare better time for my future."
I love the part of the lyrics when it mentions "Keep your head up, keep your heart strong." I hope I can do that everyday and I also hope that you can do that everyday too. Challenges can be life lessons. It helps you to grow, learn and hopefully understand the purpose of those challenges that we face everyday. 

Here's the video of the song if you haven't heard of it before.

Patience in Affliction

I would like to share with you some highlights as I was reading a April 1992 General Conference talk called "Patience in Affliction" by Angel Abrea. 

"Tribulation, afflictions, and trials will constantly be with us in our sojourn here in this segment of eternity, just as the Savior said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation.” (John 16:33.) Therefore, the great challenge in this earthly life is not to determine how to escape the afflictions and problems, but rather to carefully prepare ourselves to meet them.

We must have patience in order to withstand pain and grief without complaint or discouragement, which detract from the Spirit. It’s necessary to have patience in the face of tribulation and persecution for the cause of truth, which sets an example because the manner in which we bear our cross will be an influence to others to help lighten their load.

It must be in the same manner and in the same spirit as was that of the sons of Mosiah when they were entrusted with the task to “go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls.” (Alma 17:11)
Based on that knowledge, cemented in a strong testimony of the attributes of our Heavenly Father, the faithful Latter-day Saint—instead of despairing because a goal on his or her agenda was not realized, because his or her timetable does not bring a solution to the problems, or comfort does not come to calm the troubles of today—waits patiently for fulfillment of promises, according to the Lord’s timetable, the Lord who “knoweth all the times which are appointed unto man.” (Alma 40:10) The faithful Latter-day Saint waits patiently because, certainly, faith, “the assurance of things hoped for” (JST, Heb. 11:1), is exercised with the conviction that the promises will be fulfilled “in his own time, and in his own way, and according to his own will.” (Doctrine & Covenants 88:68)

God does live and He does fulfill His promises, and to the many testimonies given, I wish to add mine. I know that even in times of affliction and tribulation, if we patiently endure in faith, blessings of comfort and hope will come into our lives, and we will be able to partake of that “incomprehensible joy” of which Ammon and his brothers received. (Alma 27:17–18; Alma 28:8)

Therefore, in the words of Joseph Smith, “Stand fast, ye Saints of God, hold on a little while longer, and the storm of life will be past, and you will be rewarded by that God whose servants you are, and who will duly appreciate all your toils and afflictions for Christ’s sake and the Gospel’s.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 185.)

These things I say in the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

4 Possibilities of Ways to Fast

While I was listening to the 2nd speaker in Church today, she focused her talk on Fasting. During the talk, she mentioned 4 Possibilities of Ways to Fast and listed what they were and she mentioned about other things as well.

I only took notes when she mentioned about 4 Possibilities of Ways to Fast and listed what they were Soon enough, I realised I was learning some things that I didn't know before.
I would like to share with you of the notes that I took while listening to the talk.

1. Overcome weaknesses
2. Sick and afflicted - it could be family members who is sick or afflicted
3. Receive revelation - Alma 46
4. Comfort - when we feel sorrow and mourn, Helaman 3:5

Sharing the Gospel: 
- It could soften a friend's heart or helping you to know what to say
- Alma 17:9

Pay Fast Offerings:
- For those individuals is in need, also to help Heavenly Father's children

Stay tuned until next time.

Wonderful Temple Service

I don't like seeing myself upset. I don't like getting disappointed. I don't like seeing myself crying. However last night wasn't a good evening for me. 

Last night, I was upset because I had a plan to go to the Temple with a few friends for the next day and it didn't go as plan. I didn't have any back up plans. I didn't know then if I should still go to the Temple or not.

While I was taking the time to allow myself to feel calm again, I made the decision to still go to the Temple. I was grateful that I made the decision to still go. I didn't have any back up plans to do instead if I don't go to the Temple.
My Mum took me to the Temple Temple this morning and we attended a Baptistery Session together. We spent almost 4 hours at the Temple. I was able to do service while I was there which was great. 

I was able to help out during our session. I felt so much happiness, joy and tried to forget about my sadness from last night. I have been striving my best to move forward whenever I feel upset and I don't know if that's like everyone else but it is something that I have been trying to do a lot lately.
I loved the quote that I have shared for this post and I hope you will love the quote too. Stay tuned until next time.

Forget Me Not

This post is based on a talk called "Forget Me Not by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, General Relief Society Meeting, 2011." He explains a lot through the talk that it's the worth of reading the talk.
"A while ago I was walking through a beautiful garden with my wife and daughter. I marveled at the glory and beauty of God’s creation. And then I noticed, among all the glorious blooms, the tiniest flower. I knew the name of this flower because since I was a child I have had a tender connection to it. The flower is called forget-me-not.

I’m not exactly sure why this tiny flower has meant so much to me over the years. It does not attract immediate attention; it is easy to overlook among larger and more vibrant flowers; yet it is just as beautiful, with its rich colour that mirrors that of the bluest skies perhaps this is one reason why I like it so much.

And there is the haunting plea of its name. There is a German legend that just as God had finished naming all the plants, one was left unnamed. A tiny voice spoke out, “Forget me not, O Lord!” And God replied that this would be its name."

I loved when he mentioned, "Forget not to be patient with yourself. Forget not the difference between good and foolish sacrifices. Forget not to be happy now. Forget not the 'why' of the Gospel. Forget not that the Lord loves you."

I hope you have enjoyed reading of what I have shared with you. In your own time, you can read the talk. Here's the link below.

Bear Up Their Burdens with Ease

This post is based on a April General Conference 2014 talk called Bear Up Their Burdens with Ease by David A. Bednar.
I will share with you what I love when he mentions, The Strengthening Power of the Atonement.

Consider the Lord’s uniquely individual invitation to “take my yoke upon you.” Making and keeping sacred covenants yokes us to and with the Lord Jesus Christ. In essence, the Savior is beckoning us to rely upon and pull together with Him, even though our best efforts are not equal to and cannot be compared with His. As we trust in and pull our load with Him during the journey of mortality, truly His yoke is easy and His burden is light.

Not only does the Atonement of Jesus Christ overcome the effects of the Fall of Adam and make possible the remission of our individual sins and transgressions, but His Atonement also enables us to do good and become better in ways that stretch far beyond our mortal capacities. Most of us know that when we do things wrong and need help to overcome the effects of sin in our lives, the Savior has made it possible for us to become clean through His redeeming power.

But do we also understand that the Atonement is for faithful men and women who are obedient, worthy, and conscientious and who are striving to become better and serve more faithfully? I wonder if we fail to fully acknowledge this strengthening aspect of the Atonement in our lives and mistakenly believe we must carry our load all alone—through sheer grit, willpower, and discipline and with our obviously limited capacities.

It is one thing to know that Jesus Christ came to the earth to die for us. But we also need to appreciate that the Lord desires, through His Atonement and by the power of the Holy Ghost, to enliven us—not only to guide but also to strengthen and heal us."

Become Strong unto Them

I love a scripture that is found in Ether 12:27 and it reads,
"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."
It is normal to have weaknesses apart of our daily lives. I have a few questions as listed below for you to ask yourselves in your free time,

What are we suppose to do if we didn't have weaknesses?
Why do we have weaknesses apart of our daily lives?
How do you identify your weaknesses?

We have weaknesses part of our lives to build of our character of who we really are, to help us to grow and learn life lessons from having them. We all need to acknowledge our weaknesses at different stages of life.

One of the ways that I identify my weaknesses is when I am not good at doing certain things that others can do really well at. Always remember our weaknesses is part of our lives.

Your Potential, Your Privileges

This post is based on a April General Conference 2011 called "Your Potential, Your Privileges by Dieter F. Uchtdorf."
There is a video that goes with this talk. I hope you can take about 5 times out of your free time to watch this video. If you can't see the video below, here's the link;
My favourite part of the talk was towards the end of the video. He mentions a great point and I strongly agree with him.

He said,"We live beneath our privileges when we fail to partake of the feast of happiness, peace, and joy that God grants so bountifully. We can be satisfied with a diminished experience and settle for experiences far below our privileges, or we can partake of an abundant feast of spiritual opportunity and universal blessings.

As you read the scriptures and listen to the words of the prophets with all your heart and mind the Lord will tell you how to live up to your privileges and we will be able to do all things through Christ who strengthens us."

Yesterday Morning was Alright

From 11:07pm last night to 1:05am this morning, I was talking to one of my close friends Jalisa for almost 2 hours via a Skype Video Call. We haven't skyped each other previously for a long time.
I considered Jalisa as one of my close friends for a long time. I love giving her words of advice as it has always helped her when she needs it. I love talking to her in general. I always enjoy the skype calls.

After the skype call, I spent some time with my Dad until almost 2:50am. As soon as I walked into my room, I received an email and I wasn't too sure who it was. I read the email and it was from my best friend Sister M Dixon. She mentioned "Sis il be on in a hour."

I waited for 1 hour and 20 minutes for her to email me. I ended up falling asleep at 4:10am, I got so tired. I woke up around 6am and it was too late. She emailed me around 5am.

I cried and cried. I went back to sleep and I woke up again around 10am. I wished that I didn't fall asleep and waited longer. I still felt upset until about 11:30am. She should have emailed me straight away.

I missed the opportunity to chat to Sister Dixon through emails. Hopefully one day I get the opportunity to email her back and forth for a chat.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Another year has gone past and it's my Dad's Birthday today.

I wasn't always a Daddy's Girl but I love spending time with my Dad. I love my Dad so much. I appreciate everything he has done for my family. I appreciate when he makes sacrifices his time to spend time with my family. My Dad is my one and only Dad. No one can replace him.
A memory to be remembered. I would like to go to the Stake Ball and I hoped that I will have a date. I mentioned to my parents, "I'm not going to the Ball if I don't have a date. You both can have my 2 tickets for the Ball and go instead of me." Dad left for work because he forgot that he got time off work and I was doing something.

Dad called home and my Mum answered the phone. The phone call conversation was mentioning that he got time off work and he is available for the evening. He will be heading home after the phone call conversation and I need to get ready.
I got ready to go to the Ball when he came home. He got changed from work clothes to church clothes when he came home. I was feeling so happy that he ended up taking me to the Ball. Here's a photo above of me and my Dad at the Ball.

If you are reading this post Dad, Happy Birthday and I hope you will have a good day.

A Great Influence to The Family

This post is short but powerful.

I must admit, it has been 2 months without seeing my friend Melissa Sutton's family and I spoke each family member on the phone this evening. It was so good hearing each family member again. I must have a great influence in their lives that they all remembered who I am after 2 months of not seeing them.
They all missed me a lot and I missed them so much. When I go back to Perth next, I WILL see the family again. I hope that I will stay in contact with my friend Melissa.

I do miss the days when I take the children to school.

I do miss the evenings when I made dinner for the family.

I do miss the days when I received missed calls from Melissa.

I do miss the days when I see the children's excitement whenever they saw me.

I do miss the days and evenings when spending heaps of quality time with the older children and I wished I spent the same amount of quality time with the younger children.

I do miss the days when I went shopping for the family while the children was at school and Melissa was working.

I wrote a letter for them during the flight from Perth to Brisbane. However I lost the letter which sucks. I am looking forward to write some letters for them and send the letters away with a few printed photos of memories.

A Special Experience at The Temple

Another short post. My Mum and I was able to go to my youngest sister Rebekah's 1st Baptistery Session at Brisbane Temple this morning. It was a special experience for us, mostly special experience for Rebekah. When she was getting baptised, it reminded me of my 1st Baptistery Session at the Temple and what I felt.
I felt very happy for Rebekah to be able to go to the Temple and I was grateful that I was able to attend her 1st Baptistery Session. She waited for almost a year to get her Temple Recommend and I remembered when she kept asking, "When do I get to go to the Temple?"

I remembered Rebekah was telling me this evening that she will be sharing her testimony about what she felt at the Temple this morning at Church tomorrow so I am looking forward to that. I hope Rebekah could attend the Temple as often as I do or at least go to the Temple once a month.

Stay tuned until next time.
