We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
Ever since I could remember, this particular article has been my favorite. This year I decided I need to have a theme of sort to remind me of when I get lost or preoccupied with things that are not relevant. In 2011 I plan on to endure when things don't go as mapped out; I plan on seeking out good wholesome things; and I will only surround myself with things that result in making me happy and feel good about who I am.
I will no longer read blogs that make me roll my eyes, surround myself with negative people, or other elements that stir emotions of anger or frustration and make me feel less worth than I am. I need to learn to stop comparing myself to others; that idea is the one thing that destroys me more than anything. Oh pride.
I'm really excited to turn a new leaf over and work on my downfalls. 2011 will be good....even if we have to pay freakin' taxes this year.
