Morning Inspiration

My friend Courtney posted this video on her blog and I decided I would follow suit. It's amazing and it gives me such hope and clarity.

While I watched it this morning (and thought about how I STILL haven't watched the whole broadcast and how it's waiting on our DVR) I realized, once again, how hard I am on myself.  It's so easy to compare yourself to others, especially when you compare their strengths against your own weaknesses.  I have to sit back and realize that we all have our own challenges and we are all on different paths to the same goal.  I need to remember how great the past experiences I have had and how they help me now.

On a slightly related note, sweeping announcements don't really work for me.  It seems the more I forbid myself from doing something, the more I want to do it.  Instead I am going to do what I have been the past few days: work on homework then portfolio projects and then my thesis.  The days keep passing by but I know I can do it.  I have a fantastic and supportive husband and I have the ability.  I'm so glad that's it's General Conference this weekend.  I LOVE conference.

Loved watching the Women's Conference. You are so right that we compare our weaknesses against the strengths of others. Hope to see you this weekend. Love GK
