"Do not draw your sword to kill a fly." - Korean Proverb
When you set a goal to be something, you need to write down specific ways to achieve them especially when they are habits or an attitude. It's not enough to say, I want to be patient. I will be patient this week. Changing a behavior requires hard work. I am learning to control my anger by writing each moment when I got mad to my "Anger Log" journal. I write down the date, time and the reason that triggered me to react on a certain way to a situation. I realized that I am most vulnerable when I am hungry, lacked of sleep and when I wasn't able to finish the things I planned to accomplish. Preventing myself from these traps helps a lot to remain compose.
To be a noble gas is the second most important lesson I've been learning lately. A noble gas is a non-reactant element. Whatever you combine with it, noble gasses never respond. I believe this is important too in reality. We need to choose our battles. We should never let any circumstance or people to provoke us to response in a way that do not define our real beauty. It's never easy but I guess that's what Heavenly Father wants us to be.
I am really thankful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. It's helping me a lot to never give up on myself despite of my reoccurring weaknesses and mistakes. His atonement enables me to keep going and hope with a perfect brightness that one day I will become the person He wants me to be.
