I was reading my friend Haunani's blog recently and she had just written a "manifesto" and I loved what she wrote and I hope she doesn't mind my sharing (she has a great blog you can click the link on my list of blogs I follow to see it, it is called "Stuff I love"), here is what she wrote:
It kind of reminded me of the beautiful gift my friend Heather made for me. I didn't write the words, but they are words that I would use (I guess that's why when she saw the vinyl lettering she just knew it was for me). I hung the mirror in my bedroom so I could see the words to constantly remind me.
This week I was preparing to teach a lesson on Sunday and in the lesson it refers to President George Albert Smith's "personal creed" which is as follows:
Isn't that great, the lesson went on to tell about President Smith and how he truly lived his personal creed which really inspired me. So between Heather's gift, Haunani's manifesto and President Smith's personal creed and in the true nature of New Year's Resolutions, here are my words to live by:
Follow my Breathe strategies consistently.
Make dinner and do the dishes.
Make my tasks match my energy level.
Dress cute each day.
Share my talents.
Acknowledge others through words.
Create to my heart's content.
Love with abandon.
Face anxiety with courage.
Feel the peace of the Temple.
Be an obvious member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Reach out to others in all directions.
