Thoughts for Today

Oh hey, so our week is coming to an end. I feel like all these winter break weeks have flown by way to fast, and school will be starting next week. I'm kind of excited because I'll have more to do, but i'm sort of dreading it because I know that means that I won't see Chauncey as much :/ Especially since we both have jobs now. Oh well though, many other happily married couples have done it, I'm sure we can too. It will only make us stronger.

Another thing that has been on my mind: new years resolutions. I've never really been one to make resolutions, but this year I thought I would try it out. For some reason it's been on my mind a lot, especially today. So while looking through the blogs I follow, I was reminded of the 6 B's from Gordon B. Hinckley: Be Grateful, Be Smart, Be Clean, Be True, Be Humble, Be Prayerful. It has been a while since I've thought of these, but I think they are very important to remember in our daily lives. So this year I am going to try to:

Be Grateful
For everything I have, for everything that Heavenly Father gives me, including my trials.

Be Smart
I will study more and try harder in school. I've found that I have become lazy with school, and that needs to change.

Be Clean
I'll avoid anything that would keep me from going to the temple. I'll choose my friends carefully and be more careful about what I watch on tv or listen to on the radio.

Be True
I'll be true to my gospel standards, my own convictions and to myself.

Be Humble
I will be meek, humble and more teachable. Sometimes I find my pride gets in the way of learning something simple or realizing when I've done something wrong.

Be Prayerful
I will trust in the Lord more. I'll turn to Him more, and not only when I am struggling.

I'm sure that if I focus on those six things this year, I will be a better person. I don't know how many of you are into new years resolutions or anything, but it is important to have goals. We are not perfect, but we strive to be. Righteous goals help us become better people, and help us reach our ultimate goal of returning to our Father in Heaven.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you all have a Fantastic Friday :)
