The list of things I could improve is very long. I could be in better shape. I could spend less time reading and playing on my computer. I could eat slower and have smaller portions. I could listen more and never, ever express my own opinion. I could clean my vehicle. I could wear more make-up. I could fix my hair. I could dress up better. I could wear higher heels. I could add jewelry and accessorize. I could match my clothes more stylishly. I could spend less money. I could pay more attention to others. I could clean my house once in a while. I could buy more people birthday and Christmas gifts. I could call people on the telephone. I could write letters. I could do more for others. If I accomplished all of these things I would not be happy. I would not be myself. I would only be trying to be what others want me to be. Instead I will work to improve my mind, my character, my self-control (as I define it), my walk with Christ, and my ability to show respect and kindness to every single person I interact with. For a start, I will work on not speaking until the other person is completely finished and wants me to speak–otherwise, I will just listen. That’s the biggest goal I have for myself.
