A Bit of Catch Up

2011 has dawned bright and beautiful here in my new life in Ohio....school began and I was quickly reminded how much I LOVE learning! I have three classes this quarter. The first is an anatomy and physiology course, right up my alley. Even better the professor lets us skip the final if we already have an A in the class....I will do my darndest to not have to take that final. Next is an English 101 class which comes with another teacher who does not do a final. There will be lots of papers in that class, but my first one is already done even though it has not yet been assigned. Finally is an Allied Health class that's supposed to prepare me for nursing school. I was not that excited about this class, but AGAIN there are NO tests....so maybe it won't be so bad after all.

Next we get to resolutions. I really didn't make any! I refuse to bubble myself in to this little expectation. My goal is to become a better person this year in many ways, all one step at a time. I want to do well in school, I want to get healthier so I can be around for my kids for a LONG time, I want to get more comfortable in my skin, and I want to focus on the things that TRULY matter in my life. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf put those things in perfect perspective in the last General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He said "my dear brothers and sisters, we would do well to slow down a little, proceed at the optimum speed for our circumstances, focus on the significant, lift up our eyes, and truly see the things that matter most. Let us be mindful of the foundational precepts our Heavenly Father has given to His children that will establish the basis of a rich and fruitful mortal life with promises of eternal happiness." He also said that our self worth does not depend on the length of our to do list. I often get caught up in SO many things to do, hopefully all good things, but not all necessary. SO this year, I will choose to do those things that are better and BEST as has been suggested before. My girls and my schooling are high at the top of that list right now, just below doing my best as a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father.

This will be a great year for you! That's awesome you get some time to go to school and focus on another area of your life. I still don't know what I want to be when I "grow up"! Or I should say what I want to do when the KIDS grow up!
