Sunday is the day I share a little of my soul. Enjoy.
Last week in the women's Relief Society class we talked about what it means to have a resolution. What does it mean? It means having a resolve to do better. It means, to me, laying aside those things that I was holding on to that were keeping me from becoming my best self. What does it mean? Often people make resolutions and don't finish what they started. I can admit that for many years that was the case for me. Yet in the past few years I have seen myself evolve from one who makes resolutions to one who keeps resolutions. There is a difference.
A resolution is a promise you make to yourself. Yet often times it is easy to break those promises made to self. Think about it...if you were to make a promise to someone you really admire, and value beyond life itself...would you easily set aside that promise the first time a challenge came up? Or would you fight with all you had to keep that promise? It is a promise right? Yet...do you value yourself enough as a son or daughter of God (and all that goes with that title) to be true to the promises you make to yourself? That is what I'm challenging today.
I promise to myself this year to lay down my weapons of war...against myself. Self destructive talk, food...whatever it may be that devalues who I am as a daughter of God. I'm laying down my weapons and burying them this year.
Don't look back this year. I loved this. Happy New Year.
