Hey guys!This week was a good week of work in the office and the field! It was great! First, a new Elder came to the office, his name is Elder O. Because of that, our tri was divided into two companionships. I ended up with Elder C, an awesome missionary from the south of Brazil, C! I´m told that it´s one of the prettiest cities in Brazil. He´s basically the brazilian Uncle Eddy, a lot of times he says things and I the first thing that comes into my head is "That´s Uncle Eddy speaking portuguese!" It´s kind of funny!
I´ve learned a secret to get through stressful times. Learn to laugh!
This was one of Elder Wirthlin´s pieces of advice in his last conference talk "Come What May, and Love It." As I´ve started to laugh at my own errors instead of stressing out, I´ve found that I can maintain a positive mindset easier and my resolve and initiative remain unimpinged! Sometimes it´s not natural, but I start by forcing a laugh and then pretty soon it becomes so natural that I can´t stop laughing about that stupid mistake I made! So, follow Elder Wirthlin´s counsel and learn to laugh!
