start LIVING now



General conference is the best. 
For today I thought I would
share bits and pieces of 
 talk from the Saturday morning session.


He started off talking about a list of regrets from people that were in their last moments of life in the hospital. Here are a few of the things people said:



*People wished they had spent more time with the people they love -- they missed developing a deep connection with those who meant the most to them.
     
*People felt like that had failed to become the person they felt they could and should have been-- they didn't live up to their full potential.

*People wished they had let themselves be happier --so often we get caught up in the illusion that there is something just beyond our reach that will bring us happiness.
   

I loved this talk.  Such a great message- start living the way you would want to live
 if you were in your last moments of life. 

Spend time with the people you love.
Live up to your full potential- become the person God planned for you to be. 
Let yourself be happy.
