Hot Fuss

I have three  (3) favorite bands.  They all suit me for different moods.

What are my 3 favorite bands?  

Flogging Molly
Mumford and Sons

Right now I am listening to The Killers.  Whenever I listen to Hot Fuss it brings me back to high school.  Jr Year I think.  I get this feeling like I'm just a little kid pretending to be an adult.  

You're probably like, "Then why do you listen to it?  That sounds depressing."

And yeah maybe it is.  High school isn't a time I'd like to relive.  I think I've changed a lot since then.  Well actually I know I have.  I've worked really hard to be a better happy person since then.  

Sometimes I just like to listen to Hot Fuss because 
it reminds me of how far I've come.  
From everything being the end of the world to 
finding reasons to
be happy in every situation.

It's good, when things don't happen the way I think they should 
I try to think of things to be grateful for.  

Hot Fuss reminds me that it's possible to change.  
Because I have changed since I bought that cd.  
Brandon Flowers has changed.  
Millions of people change everyday.

Not because of The Killers, but because 
the Atonement makes it possible.  
Because Jesus made the Ultimate Sacrifice for us.  
Because God wants us to live with Him forever
Because Jesus wants us to too
Because we make that choice to be better and change.
We make the choice to use the Atonement to 
change our lives.

I'm super grateful for this gift.  The Atonement is great! 
 I would be seriously lost in a dark abyss without it.  

Woah you guys.  This is not why I started this post.  But I am very happy with the way it ended.

I love you.  I believe in you.  
If you think you're hopeless, believe me, you're not.  You have so much potential!  You can be your best self.  Yes it will take work, but all the best things in life come after hard work.  Just rely on the Lord because his arms are always stretched out (Psalm 136:12, 2Nephi 20:4, D&C 136:22) to lift you up and help you and guide you along.  And to give you a hug
because sometimes that's just what you need.

And that's saying a lot from me because I am not a hugger.

Love you!
