I just now had an epiphany. I have been so STUCK on myself I haven't been reaching out to other people. I keep saying "I" and that is exactly what I have been focused on lately. I have been so self absorbed and only thinking of myself and not looking outside myself. That's also why I have been so negative and down probably, just because I havebeen so self-absorbed. I am going to follow Elder Cook's dad's 3 rules:
  • always have 3 goals
  • can change goals but must keep 3
  • must always be working on/towards the goals
My Goals
  1. Work Out
  2. Meet 5 new people a day (while out at school, not necessarily at home)
  3. Stay Positive and Grateful

  1. that's great! i love epiphanies! i was finding myself in the same mode & found this:
    “Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others. I recall visiting a college campus where I heard the usual complaining of [students] about the pressures of school—as if it were a burden rather than an opportunity to partake of the knowledge of the earth—complaints about [roommates], [complaints about] housing and food. I counseled those [students] that if the pressures of school were too heavy, if they felt to complain then I could suggest a cure for their problems. I suggested they lay their books aside for a few hours and go visit someone who is old and lonely, or someone sick and discouraged. By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves” -Gordon B. Hinckley
    isn't Gordy B. great??
