In life, we can do whatever we want. We're able to grow up and be whatever we want. The choices that we make will determine who we become, and ultimately whether we are happy or not. In the words of Lehi, a prophet living about 600 BC,
Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself. ~2 Nephi 2:27We can be happy, I know, only through Jesus Christ. He is the source of all that is good, and can help us in more ways that we can imagine.
Now for lesson two learned in the mission:
It's not a good idea to microwave a hard-boiled egg.
