A Perfect Day

The clips here are from the movie The Ultimate Gift with Drew Fuller. If you have not seen this movie you should. It's not a main stream film, but there are so many messages, morals, and experiences to receive from this movie. After seeing it, I suggest putting it on your "Must Buy" list.

Preface to these clips; first off sorry the clips are so long but they cut out in the middle of what I wanted to share which is why there is two. If you start the first clip at about 3 min you should be alright. The second clip just watch up till about 35 seconds. Well feel free to watch it all, that's just the part I will be touching on. I've never tried to add youtube things on here so I'm hoping it works. I put both on also to give you a better feel for the movie and help you understand it (if you havent seen it hat is).
(so its not working how I want it to so here are the links to it)

"My dream, my dream was a perfect day, and I'm just finishing it. My dream was to be with the people I love, that love each other, that love me."

Yes I realize this is just a movie, BUT how profound is this in so many ways? I am adopting this as my perfect day, now that I've done that, isn't everyday perfect? To be with people you love could be parents, siblings, cousins, roommates, best friends. Here I am living at home thinking my days are boring and I have nothing to do but lounge around.....me, me, me, me! What about those people I am around when " I'm bored"? The people that love me the most, my family. As much as they might be frustrated with me, they still love me. So yes I am currently not surrounded by friends but I'm surrounded by the people who love me most. To be with people that love each other; since we are a family we do love each other. I am not with prince charming, lover boy, or mr. incredible but that doesn't mean I don't have love for family members? Life still goes on without mr. right(or wrong in my case). He may not love you, so what! You've got family and friends who care about you more than you thought until you step out of the box and realize you've been "shutting out" those who love you most. I am surrounded by people who love each other. People that love me, it always seems to take something drastic in my life to realize that there are other people who love me besides a boy, besides one single boy I have tons of friends, family members, and adults in my home ward that love me. So today is a perfect day. The crazy thing about all of this is even if I didn't have a family, or Friends, or people that love and love me, there's still Heavenly Father. He gives us the people we love, lets us love each others, and most importantly loves me. So why wouldn't everyday be a perfect day? I am going to try and remember this everyday, when I wake up, shower, eat, run errands. If we ingrain it into our minds that we're having a perfect day couldn't it be? Just my thoughts on one part of this movie. There are so many different things I can and have taken from it, I watch it over and over again! Sorry if it doesn't make a ton of sense its such good stuff, my mind is going a thousand miles a min and putting it on paper can be difficult. Anyway we'll see if I can refrain from writing a new blog everyday haha. Thanks for reading!
