because it's impOrtant

I have worked with some pretty amazing people during my college years who have influenced my life greatly. 
I have always valued their opinion and maybe a little too often would ask for it in certain situations. 
One particular conversation has stuck with me however and I feel it's so applicable to every one's life that I would share it.

One of my bosses has been through an awful lot in her life. When I imagine going through the things she has had to, I honestly don't know if I could do it, let alone with the amount of class and poise she demonstrates. Her life is still full of trails and heartbreak; just like every single one of us.

When I asked her how she does it, she said:

"Sometimes you just have to pray every 15 minutes that you'll make it through the next 15 minutes."

It's so simple but yet, so powerful.

I don't know the personal struggles some of you might be facing, but I do know that you don't have to face them alone. 

I know from personal experience that if you ask, Heavenly Father will lighten the sting and heartache of what you might be feeling; big or small.

So get on your knees and pray. Every 15 minutes if you have to.
