It's short—just three paragraphs. But the message President Monson recently shared on his Facebook page, which comes from his 2008 talk "Finding Joy in the Journey," is an inspired one that every Mormon needs to hear to bring perspective to life here and now.
"This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now. The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief. Opportunities come, and then they are gone.
"I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not.
"I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and non-existent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now."
