Enduring Well

"Endurance is more than pacing up and down within the cell of our circumstance; it is not only acceptance of the things allotted to us, it is to 'act for ourselves' by magnifying what is allotted to us."
- Neal A. Maxwell, “‘Endure It Well’,” Ensign, May 1990, 33

I was going to post about the party that my roommate and I, along with my sister and her husband, attended, but this quote was way more interesting. When I read it, I thought about my trials and how I often do just pace "up and down within the cell of [my] circumstance." How much better would my life be if I endured well and magnified what was allotted to me? How much more would I discover and learn?
