Weeeeeeeell...it's been a while since I've posted on the old bloggy, but there hasn't been too much going on. I've decided a few things though:
1. Prayers work. I feel like I pray all the time in a way that is like...the same prayer all the time. I started realizing that I wasn't putting much effort into my prayers and I really needed some help. So I started putting more effort into being sincere and truly pouring my heart out to Heavenly Father. What do you know? I started feeling more peace, and getting more results! Heavenly Father cares. We just need to really seek him out.
2. Negative degree weather makes people want to die. The end.
3. Fear is Satan. It's important to recognize that. I always tell Clayton that Satan doesn't want us to be happy. In fact, he wants us to be HORRIBLY miserable. So it makes sense he would put fear in our hearts to keep us from doing things that will help us grow, help us be happy. I am continually learning this and trying to rid my life of fear.
4. My life motto, what I am trying to live by, is...Don't worry until you have to. Worry is such a stress. I feel like I am getting much better at this but sometimes I have a bad day and I just worry to death and go crazy pants. Then I re-evaluate (Clay helps a lot with this part) and realize...you know what? There is NO point in worrying about things I can't control and things that haven't even happened yet. So I just try to live my life and not worry. Don't worry, be happy.
In a few days it is going to be February! That's a little mind boggling that it's been a month since the new year. I have a few chapters left on my book that everyone seems to fly through and I just am having the hardest time. I've never taken so long on a book (except les mis...but that is like a bazillion pages). I am determined to finish it in the next few days so I can move on to the books on hold at the library. The book I'm reading is called The Shack. It is very interesting and has some majorly good moments that make light bulbs go off in my head...but it is very slow going and a lot of just like...talking. Nothing much going on at all.
Well, that's all for now! I'll post in a couple days to report my monthly status on my goals by numbers.
