Live your Best Self today

Trying something new. . . . but seriously – why does the video image have to choose such a lovely freeze?  Let me know what you think and be sure to post what living one day as the best you is like!

Take the challenge to live your best self just for one day!

Things to Consider when tackling your day:

  • Think about what your best self would look like.  How would you respond to challenges?  How would you treat others?  What things/tasks would you make sure to do?

  • What’s one thing you can do during this challenge that will help you improve yourself or get closer to a goal that will help magnify your potential?
  • Record your thoughts and experiences in your journal (and here in the comments section – I want to read all about it!).

Oh, and I have a new Youtube channel for these vids.  The URL is http://www.youtube.com/user/AtypicalMormonChick

Racing Life?

My Mormon Life

Today I’m wishing for more hours in the day. There are so many things calling, “Here, here! Pick me, Pick me!” So many dreams I want to pursue, kids to play with and enjoy, three bathrooms spitting dirty profanities, two tests to study for, and a lot of fun to be had.
