The Life Journey

By Claire Enos

As an English major, I have to study a lot of different stories and figure out the journey that the characters go through. I have to analyze everything that happens and then write essays on the topic. A lot of this I complain about, because it's so much work, but in reality I love that aspect of my major. I love analyzing characters and their actions and the parts of a story. I love everything about my major. In the course of my years as an English major I have noticed one thing: each trial a character goes through leads them to another and another, which leads to the end of the story.

Imagine that each of us has trials, and each of these trials lead to more, as well as gifts and talents, our personalities, everything that makes each of us, us. Thought of that way, how can we ever hope our lives could be different? If we didn't have everything, good and bad, that has happened to us how could we be who we are now?

I am proud of who I am, and I have just now begun to let that idea sink into my being. So, with that thought, I will continue to change, develop, into the woman I can become with God's help. I am slowly working toward my divine destiny, and I pray that all of you do as well. Whether you are young or old, everyone is learning something. Why else would we be down here?



  1. Good point Claire! The things we experience do build our character...for good or bad. Life is all about learning - especially learning how to love like the Savior loves. Thanks for the thought to ponder! hugs~

    1. Thanks for always taking the time to read my posts and posting your comments Kari! I really appreciate it! Even when I forget and take ten minutes out of the following day to write up something that probably has tons of mistakes and could use some serious help, you still find something to compliment in my posts, and I appreciate it. Thanks for being you Kari!
