While we were at the cabin for New Year's, I happened to notice this!!
Looks like Santa did bring her what she wanted for Christmas.
“Countless … studies have shown that consistently grateful people are more energetic, emotionally intelligent, forgiving, and less likely to be depressed, anxious, or lonely.”
“When you write down a list of “three good things” that happened that day, your brain will be forced to scan the last 24 hours for potential positives—things that brought small or large laughs, feelings of accomplishment at work, a strengthened connection with family, a glimmer of hope for the future. In just five minutes a day, this trains the brain to become more skilled at noticing and focusing on possibilities for personal and professional growth, and seizing opportunities to act on them. At the same time, because we can only focus on so much at once, our brains push out those small annoyances and frustrations that used to loom large into the background, even out of our visual field entirely.”
Elder Bednar has said "We make time for what really matters. We all have all the time there is. So if we don't pray and study the scriptures, we just didn't think it was important. Something else was more important."My biggest tip here is to find something that motivates you. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what that is for you. For me, it is colored pencils, pens and markers, a new notebook and stickers and post-its. I love the idea of using new pens and markers to highlight and write ideas. Maybe your motivation is to study before allowing yourself to turn on electronics. It could be a new set of scriptures, or maybe a special treat for studying so many days in a row. Whatever it is, figure it out and make it work for you.
3 Nephi 18:And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.
Wherefore, now after I have spoken these words, if ye cannot understand them it will be because ye ask not, neither do ye knock; wherefore, ye are not brought into the light, but must perish in the dark.3. Piece it Out
