Reward and Punishment as a Condition of Existence

In very practical terms, I believe that our "rewards" and "punishments" are determined within what we become.

In other words, in the end, we will BE our own reward or punishment
- with grace / the Atonement providing the leeway allowed for us to muddle around and make mistakes as we become.

Sometimes I think our kids and spouse are our "reward" or "punishment".. just by being themselves!! LOL
I think in the end the worst punishment will be the knowledge that we could have done better or become something more... regrets over what could have been. But I think it will be offset by a real view of just how much we DID do and accomplish and become.
