"A Goal Not Written Down is Only a Wish" (2011)

I like coming up with goals for the new year in the hopes of maybe fixing some of my short comings. So... This year I resolve to:
  • Make more of an effort for in-depth scripture study. I need to set a certain time to do it, and not just do it to say that I did... but to learn from it.
  • Gain a stronger testimony.
  • Pray both morning and night. A day started with a prayer will undoubtedly go better.
  • Go the temple more often instead of other time wasting activities.
  • Be less lazy. Excercise some so I can feel good about the physical shape I am in.
  • Procrastinate less, schoolwork in particular. I need to do the reading and give all work my best effort. No more slacking!
  • Get more sleep... At more normal times.
  • Keep a regular written journal. This has been on my list for years. It's never happened... We'll see.
  • Be more service oriented. Laugh a little more. Brighten someone's day.
  • Eat healthier. No more college student diet! And yes, this means cooking...
  • Spend less time on facebook. It's too distracting. Facebook should be for when homework for the next day is finished. There are lots more productive things I could be doing with my time.
  • Make an effort to get to know more of the people around me. I want to branch out. "Do one thing every day that scares you." I saw that quote once on a magnet. Isn't that great? Getting to know new people is scary, no matter how much practice you've had with moving around and starting over (and believe me, I've had lots). I want to step out of my comfort zone, because that's where life begins! And who knows? Maybe I will touch them in a way that I don't even realize.
To sum everything up... I want to learn to love myself even more. I want to be a more cheerful person. I want to put myself out there without worrying about what others think and stretch myself to become even better than I ever knew I could.
     "I wanna make a memory filled with love... The kind you don't forget!" ♥
I think that this one line from a song I was listening to last night would be a great theme for this coming year. I hope that by remembering and putting into action the things I've listed above that I will be happier, and there will be less stress and more fun times with new friends. So... Let's get out there and make some memories!
♥, Meagan
