Be Better

via this blog via pinterest

What I was hoping for with this week full of goal-related posts was a time for me to sort through some of my ideas/thoughts on the process of improvement.  Self-improvement is a constant work in progress and something I'm always learning more about, tweaking my methods and approach as I work towards desired outcomes.  I hope from it all there is something that has helped you think about being better.

In all of the reading I've done this year, I thought I'd share a few links to some favorite sources of inspiration regarding goals. Feel free to add to the list in the comment section- I'm always looking for a good read.  

Happy weekend, friends!  I need to make a cake for a funeral and work on some little projects around the house (hello laundry room that is buried under piles of...stuff).  Other than that, it's relatively free of plans-delightful!  Hope some work and some play are on your agenda.  

Do Things That Make a Difference by M. Russell Ballard
2012-Let's Make it a Good One by Mara Kofoed of A Blog About Love (My favorite part is her thoughts about going after our goals, but not because we're not good enough- something I've tried to figure out a million times how to put into words, so thank you, Mara!)
I Resolve. by Natalie Norton (great thoughts on doing what we know- I love this concept)
I Am But a Lad by Neal A. Maxwell (love the quote, "Trust the Lord to lead you from what you are to what you have the power to become.")
A new year. New goals. New Habits by Molly of My Favorite Things (especially love the part at the end about "if I accomplish only one thing this year...")
New Years Resolutions by Sarah at Clover Lane (fantastic post, especially the part where she shares her thoughts on her duty to God to become better- I agree a million times!)
Making a New List for a New Year by Lovely Lindsay at run lucan run (this is a fantastic printable New Years kit)
Our 2012 Family Theme by Lindsey Redfern of The R House (her theme is beautiful, and this talk she linked to is equally amazing)
Remember Lot's Wife by Jeffrey R. Holland (thoughts on looking forward and embracing the future.  this link will take you to a place where you can download the pdf or mp3 or other media types)
In With the New by Natalie of Nat the Fat Rat (I pretty much completely echo her sentiments.  Beautiful wishes for the new year)
