I am constantly reminded of Elder Uchtdorf's, "Forget me not" talk, from October 2011. Small things can matter the most. I guess you could say I believe in working with what you've got, and sometimes (in my case, most of the time) what you have ain't that great. As if it were not obvious, I have absolutely no money, but I have learned to use what I have and arrange it in a way that makes my little space cute, comfortable, and inviting.
2. I am socially wise.
I try to include the outcast, forgive quickly and honestly, and help others feel good about themselves. I just they do not begin to think I'm unbearably annoying......never, right?!
3. I can set and achieve goals.
My word for this year was action. Where this used to be a weakness, I believe, is now becoming more of a strength. I don't just dream up life possibilities, I work towards completing them too.
4. I am getting better at choosing faith.
I don't understand everything that is preached as doctrine, but I am getting stronger at choosing to have faith in spite of my lack of understanding. I know a few things to be true in the gospel and that helps me accept other things that I do not quite grasp. I am also motivated to seek out greater understanding and do my best to comprehend the doctrine.
5. I recognize that I do have faults.
I don't walk around thinking I am perfect and know everything there is to know about everything. I am open about where I have weakness and attempt to work on them (nearly) everyday so I am not tied to them as strongly.
