hopeless goals

I know I haven't had much success with keeping recent pictures posted, or even updating people on the things happening in our life (like the house we just bought). Eventually I will have pictures of Sophie and pictures of our house. But for now I want to talk a little about my goals.

I have so many things I want to be working on. I want to exercise more, I want to lose weight, I want to cook healthier things, I want to keep my house cleaner, I want to find ways to save money, I want to have fun things to do with my family, I want to start Sophie's scrapbook. I want more time to go to the temple.

I feel a little hopeless right now about getting these things to happen. My problem is right now I feel like all I have time for is school work and taking care of Sophie. I am hoping desperately that at the end of this month when I am graduated and moved I have time for more of these things but I think I also need motivation.

I know I need to just set some goals that I can work on a little at a time, but I have a hard time finding enough time right now to clear the table for dinner- I feel like I can't do it. How do I work on becoming a better person when I am just trying to survive?


  1. Take it one at a time--you can do it! :D

  2. Just as Chad reminds me (almost) daily: I can't change the world in one day (although being superhuman I'm sure that I can!).

    There are so many things we can and want to do. The list gets longer each year that I live. Sometimes I just have to relish in the little things I accomplish each day.

  3. I'm a lot like you -- feeling like I want to do a million things but I barely have my chin above water. This year I only made one New Years resolution: to find joy in the day. It's the best thing I've done for myself in a long time. When I really focus on trying to be happy with the little victories (or finding joy even when there are no victories to be had), I feel the spirit more often. I'm also able to discern what my priorities should be. The spirit also helps me to either work on the things I need to change or to accept the things I can't change. Good luck!
