After reading my scriptures tonight, I took some time for some personalÂ introspection. I came to a realization that I need to change.
I am afraid what my eulogy would read if I died today. Would I be remembered for being the person I think I should be, or would I be remembered for the person I really am?
I need to be less critical, and I need to be more compassionate. I need to be lessÂ judgmentalÂ and more tolerant. I need to lift others up, and not tear others down. I need to be less prideful and more humble. I need to be less selfish and more charitable. I need to be less contentious and more inspiring.
For the longest time, I have wanted to make a difference in the world. That being said, I am afraid that if I keep along the path I am, that I will make hardly any difference at all, and very few people will be better off having known me.
I also realize that changing myself needs to be about changing who I am and not what I do. Trying to change behaviour will never result in changing character.
