i've talked about this before--sometimes i get down. i start feeling like i can't do it all and that i'm not good enough to do the things i want to do.

but then...

pretty much without fail, i get a little reminder that i actually have it pretty good and that i'm not alone in this thing called life. i can do it, and i am pretty awesome.

this last sunday was one of those reminder days. all of the meetings taught me things that i've been needing to brush up on, then i went to a fireside where a prophet spoke as if directly to me and i realized that i don't need to be afraid of the future, and later we had our customary father's blessings to open the school year. it was a great day.

i also had another realization: i focus too much on people and what they are doing, whether it be people i know or people i don't. obviously, it is good to care about people and be interested in their lives, but i remembered a quote that i've heard a few times.

so, if i want to cultivate a great mind (and i do. want to cultivate a great mind, that is.), i need to talk more about ideas and less about people. so i'm counting that as one of my goals for this next stretch of time.
