I wish I could say I was perfect.
That I was the best I could possibly be.
Those of you who know me, know thats not true, HA!
But I try
I try to be kind
I try to be compassionate
I try not to judge
I try to read my scriptures and say my prayers
I try to be better every single day.
I have had this major desire lately to not judge so much and its hard.
When someone is a punk at work I used to think something rude and judgmental
Now, I'm trying to see things from their perspective.
Trying to take it as a learning opportunity, to see how I can learn something new.
In every situation I am in, I am trying to be able to see it how Christ would see it if He were here.
Today a "homeless" guy came into work, and he complained about a $40 refraction fee.
And then he drove off in a brand new Escalade that didn't even have the license plates on it yet.
This guy was crossing the street in front of me holding a sign asking for money, and he pulled out his IPhone.
Today a coworker went crazy on me.
Just a few of the many opportunities to judge.
The Lord was testing me.
In all of the situations, I feel like I approached them way better then I would've even yesterday.
Sometimes becoming better is painful.
Sometimes it requires a MAJOR change.
But I'm ready for change.
Even though it may seem like a little thing, I am working on it.
I'm reading my scriptures more.
I'm trying to see people through the Lord's eyes.
David has helped me see how fragile life can be, and I want to be prepared to meet my Maker.
I want to be the happiest person possible every day.
I want to be better.
I've got a ton of things to work on.
So here's to baby steps, and improving.
As President Gordon B. Hinckley used to say,
"Try a little harder to be a little better"
I'm taking that challenge to heart.
And I'm more motivated then I have been in a long time to improve.
Change is happening.
I'm excited for this change.
