President Monson's Closing Remarks: More Thoughts!

"May we be examples of honesty and integrity wherever we go and in whatever we do."

This phrase stuck out to me. That is one of my main goals right now: to be honest. To be true to myself. To be honest with others. To be authentic. To not be a hypocrite.

We talked about "authenticity" and being genuine, last week in Music Therapy Methods class. I think its extremely important! If we can not be authentic, even with ourselves, it will be hard to get anywhere in life. I don't want to be divided against myself in any way. When I change, I want all of me to come with me.

Maybe that's one reason why I love the song "I'm Still Here" so much. The chorus cries out: "I want a moment to be real...and feel I belong." By being honest with myself, acting with integrity, and being genuine and authentic, I will be the real me, and eventually I'll find where I belong.
