Can't stop thinking about our 5th Sunday lesson with the Bishop a few days ago. He made a sort of analogy about the choices we have in life, saying,
"You can either feel the pain of discipline, or suffer the pain of regret."
So cool. He made a lot of connections between these two kinds of pain and how we study and live the gospel, how we treat our bodies, etc. Am loving this idea as you can apply it in nearly every area of life. It doesn't sound very cheerful (actually sounds like it hurts) at first, but I think that you can even substitute pain for joy in the first half, because disciplining our lives can lead up to lots o' happiness. Think about it.
