My Last Little Goals

Believe it or not, I haven't quite listed all of my little goals yet.  The funny thing is, I was just reading a past blog post about being careful not to have too many goals!  These are fairly little -- sort of :-)

1.  Drink more water.  Since I seem to be thirsty every minute of the day, this one is going well.
2.  Move more.  It is hard to move more when all of my favorite things to do involve not really moving much -- music, writing, reading, talking -- you see the problem!  I have started doing more tai chi again along with trying to jog -- and I feel pretty good about that.  I also move when I shop, but I'm pretty sure "shop more" shouldn't be a new goal.

3.  Finally, I have been wanting to study prayer because I believe prayers can be improved, and so can the ability to receive answers.  Tia gave me a nice little notebook for Christmas that I love (pictured above).  On the front it says, "Upon these I write the things of my soul -- 2 Nephi 4:15".  I thought and thought about what to use it for.  After all of that thought, I decided that as I study scriptures, and Conference talks, and other books, talks, or lessons, I would write any insights I got about prayer in my notebook.  If you want to share with me your insights on prayer, I would love that too.

Shockingly, these aren't the only things I want to work on, but these are all of my little goals.  If there is anything I am a genius at, it is coming up with ways I could do better.  Carrying through with those things can be a different story!  But every little move for the better is a good thing.

Well good luck with tia chi and jogging none which are in my near future as walking is getting tuff.We,ll get that fixed soon tho.Setting goals is a good thing and reaching them is even better.I finally completed a couple of online college courses,wasn,t quantum physics and wasn,t that hard but it,s something I,ve always wanted to do.Hang in there and good luck with reaching your goals.
