Becoming Better With Every Step...
"That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing is changed, but our power to do is increased" (Heber J. Grant).
While are growing up we are constantly improving. We each make continuous goals and accomplish them. Sometimes the goals consist of finishing a school project, getting the splits, completing a scripture mastery and even cleaning your room, but no matter what the task; things are checked off a never ending list to make you a better person. Sometimes I think we need an "Old Women in Excellence" program. I need something to mark off and some sort of clear cut to do list to make me a better mother, wife, friend, daughter and etc.
Lately, I have tried to work at being a better friend. I am not always a great listener because I like to talk. I am not always great at making friends because I like people to reach out to me. I am not always great at thinking about other because I get overwhelmed with my own tasks. But- I am married to a great listener, who easily reaches outside his comfort zone and almost always thinks of others (sometimes before his family, but we love him anyways).
Don't you find that when you become a better friend you have better friends. I have so many wonderful friends scattered far and wide. I have always been blessed by so many amazing people. Thank you for being my friend and in turn I am trying to learn from all of you. So, this is what i am working on: my goal for this week, month, year and so on.
What would you like to be better at?
