New ideas (for me anyway)

So for my brothers christmas present I'm printing his blog (don't worry, he already knows...he wouldn't give me his password to get into his blog so he made me a contributor instead, snazzy eh?). He writes every day. Some days all he writes is "Long day, no post" but still, he writes every day. While compiling all this and trying to put this together for him I've realized a couple things (most of which I'll tell you at Christmas Collin!) but one of them is that it's good to have a record of your life. . .even if you don't write much. One of the apostles, Eyring I think, talked about taking the time every day to see God's hand in our lives. I think Collin does this, and I think I need to do it better, so...I'm going to start blogging more. This is a big thing for me because I'm a sucker for comments, and I generally don't post another blog until I feel like my post has got it's due. However, I'm changing my mind. My blogs are for me, so I should write them when I feel like I should. That's goal number one. Which brings up another interesting topic. Setting goals. I don't like to do it. I generally avoid it at all costs. But mostly just the word. After all, goals is synonomys with perfection, and that's the point of life (not to be perfect, but to try...to better ourselves). So, goal number two: Set goals. Crazy eh? Yeah, I'm weird, but it works for me. Goal number three: This can be summed up with a primary song (gotta love 'em) "Early to bed, and early to rise...makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise..." are you singing it in your head too? This little ditty has been constantly in my head for the last week or so...So, I'm going to try to do better. Don't look at the time stamp for this blog because it's late. 11:25 isn't early, but I'm working on it. So, here we go. Time to start something new.

Good for you!

And, I'm not familiar with that song. I just know the phrase (and don't follow it either).

I tried that early to bed and early to rise thing when my daughter started kindergarten. I even included a shower in my goal. I did great until I had my baby. Now I just sleep when I can. I actually really miss going to bed early and getting up early. I felt more productive with my day. Good luck with your goals. Maybe you'll start to really enjoy it. Just maybe!

Yay for you! For all of the goals you've just set, for blogging more, all of that good stuff. :)

Good goals, but I like the more blogging best.
