I can do "a little"


I have been struggling with a lot of things all at once; spiritually, physically, emotionally... I have been feel like my relationship with the Lord is not as it should be. I have gained waaaay too much weight- I hate my body. I am out of shape and it's all my fault. Emotionally... I was taking Seiuli for granted and putting our relationship on the back-burner. I have been feeling over-whelmed  with the need to change and not knowing where to start!  But today I found a quote today that hit me.
May we go with determination to try a little harder to be a little better.

- Gordon B. Hinckley

He didn't say "Know everything and do it all now!" or "You suck!!" He said TRY a LITTLE harder to be a LITTLE better. Little changes here and there can make a huge difference. It doesn't matter if you are Christian or not. It doesn't matter if you are stick thin or obese.  Everyone can TRY to be better!! I have set some new goals and made some changes. I will be limiting my Facebook time. I go back to school in 2 weeks-- 13 hours!!  I will be working out more. I found that I LIKE to walk.  I hate running, but I enjoy walking and that time alone. I've challenged myself to study the scriptures more and also to just read uplifting things each day-- like the quote I found today!!! I WILL try a little harder and I WILL BE a little better!! :)
