I have been thinking about this post all week! I read and re-read an incredible talk Elder Oaks gave during the last general conference about DESIRE. He says, "I hope each of us will search our hearts to determine what we really desire and how we rank our most important desires. Desires dictate our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions. The desires we act on determine our changing, our achieving, and our becoming." He talks about how sometimes we override a desire with other desires that we think are more important.
Billy Blanks says, "As soon as you make those muscles do something they don't want to do, they're going to change." Sometimes, to achieve our most important desires, we have to do things we don't want to do, we might have to give up some of our desires. When we do this, we begin to see change. For example, we might have to give up 30 minutes of sleep, for 30 minutes of exercise. OR 30 minutes of a favorite T.V show, for 30 minutes of sleep.
So this talk has dictated my week. All week I have asked myself what I really desire and I have tried to act accordingly. I don't know what it will mean for all of you, but I hope it at least helps you feel that DESIRE TO EXERCISE this week!! :) If you want to read the talk for yourself, you can pick up your May Ensign, or find it here.
