And an Awesome 2013 To You Too!

It's a new year!!!! 2013!!!! You know what that means. It's goal time! My New Year Resolutions (yes, I think it deserves to be capitalized :) stuff will come a bit later; I'm writing this right now because I just found another blog post that I want to be a part of my new year, kind of like an over-arching theme that encompasses all my goals. This wonderful post: http://www.daringyoungmom.com/2012/12/19/drops-of-awesome/

Not only do I think it is great to read and think about, I'm also sure that at least once - probably more like over a hundred - times this coming year, it will be exactly what I need to hear. And I want to have it here and easily accessible for when I need it and have forgotten all about it.

So here is my little quick blurb about it to my future 2013 self who needs to remember what that post contains, and to anyone else who may also need it.

You are a daughter of God, and you are awesome! Despite how many times you feel like you have fallen short of the mark, or failed to achieve your goals (or the goals others expect you to achieve), your Father in Heaven still loves you very much. Keep trying! Don't be afraid to believe that He knows you are not perfect. And don't be afraid to trust in the Atonement, and to know that through it, you are loved, and you are enough :) Actually, not just enough...more like awesome!! And a princess too, of course :)

And then read this :D
