But how do you do that when you feel so miserable when you first move to Farmington or have been here for years and still feel unhappy?
This man gave a sermon in my church several months ago. He told us what he told his son before he left on a mission to another country.
This is what he said:
“Son, don’t hold back.
Whenever we have gone to Navajo Lake, I’ve always told you to jump in. Yes, the water is cold.
Just jump in.
Do the same thing when when you arrive in your mission.
Don’t hold back.
Love the people and give it everything you have.”
I totally pictured me wanting to dip my feet in and then slowly inch forward into the cold water – only to prolong the misery.

I hope you bloom and thrive here in Farmington! It’s truly a great place to live. It only took me four years to discover that. I hope it takes you a much shorter time!
