Just pondering.....

So recently I have been doing some pondering. First, I realize that none of us are perfect, and that this life is all about progression and becoming better. However, recently I have really been thinking about myself and the things i need to improve and I have come to the realization that I am not as good as I think I am. I have picked 4 things that I am going to work harder on and try to be better at. Yesterday, at the fireside they were talking about how the difference between a wish and a goal is that goals you write down. So here it goes:

1) I am going to be better at reading my scriptures every single night. (no matter how late)
2) I will only drink diet coke when I am at a restaurant.
3) I will be more reverent in church meetings.
4) I will cut certain words out of my vocabulary (they aren't bad words, but I could use better ones)

So these are now officially my 4 goals. I constantly struggle with recognizing all my faults and wanting to change them all at once, getting overwhelmed, and then accomplishing none of them. So I will work on these 4 till I feel I have mastered them and then go to the next ones. I guess the ultimate goal is that I want to be the kind of person that someone meets and says, "wow, that girl loves the Lord, and is a great example." There are faithful people everywhere that radiate that spirit, and I want to be counted among them.

I tried...I really tried! Then Daren asked me to drive to Sonic and get him a bacon cheeseburger. That was the end of my "DR. PEPPER FAST!" I will try again tomorrow!

I want to be as good as you when I grow up!

Love ya!
