New Years Resolutions

I have been thinking quite a bit about what "Goals" I should set for 2011. I always set one goal year after year and that is to workout and keep my body and lungs in good health and shape.

So Here is my Official List:
1-Learn something new
2-Write more letters/card to those I love.
3-Continue to exercise and stay healthy
4-Laugh more
5-Make more friends
6-Grow more spiritually
7-Work on book 're-write'
8-Be happy with where I am in life
9-Don't blog when I know I am just having emotional drug side effects :)

Those are it. Things I know I can do. Things I have control over. New Years resolutions don't have to be HUGE Goals that I honestly set so high that I could possibly never live up to. . .that is just setting myself up for failure.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Jamie- I couldn't find the post I wanted to comment on, but I will say it here anyway becasue I like your resolution list. I havn't made mine yet...I will get there ...I think. Go for your dream! If there was something that I wanted to do or be since I was a very little girl...I would go for it. Some people are blessed to have that kind of dream...their whole lives or know what they really want to do or know what they are passionate about. What ever you choose to do, make sure you are passionate about it and then no matter what, it will be the right choice....go where your heart leads you and don't listen to any negative self doubt...that is never productive. Dream....Dream BIG! You can have yoru dreams and still have principles and standards...it just takes GUTS...and you have proved you have that!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
