Reality Check

Do you ever have those times when you feel like you can't do anything right? I am in a bit of a funk right now.
Logically I know I am a smart, capable, valuable person but discouragement still rears its ugly head. I decided I need to make a list of some of my accomplishments & goals achieved over the last year. Hopefully seeing them together will help me remember all the good things I have done and help me not to dwell only on my shortcoming! You, dear reader, are my sounding board- but you are free to stop reading here! Ü

In no particular order:
Got up the courage to join Weight Watchers, lost 35 pounds
Ran- RAN- a 5K
Got up the courage to go back to school to finish my degree
So far I have Straight A's
Coordinated a yard sale that helped a family with huge medical bills
Helped build a float for the Days of 47 Parade
Hiked with my family and liked it!
Got down to a size of clothing I haven't seen in years
Grew out my bangs- this took more patience than I thought I had
I no longer tremble in fear before teaching Gospel Doctrine each week
Learned to say NO once in a while
Improved my sewing repertoire
Got two street lights installed
Actively participated as a county delegate for the Republican convention
Own my problems & take responsibility for my choices

I hopefully can think of a few more, but that should keep me going for a bit...

Got your house refinanced at an incredible - though temporary rate.

Support your husband in the calling he has been doing for approx 3 years.

Surviving terrible two's and threes's (daily amazement!)

Supported mirriads of ward members in filling in where you can.

Supported many a'friend in their hard times. . . .and the list goes on!

I know you're not looking for compliments by creating this post, but you're going to get them anyway. I've always looked up to you. You are an incredibly positive woman, and I always try to find an excuse to be around you. The world needs of few more Corrines!!

Keep up the good work. You are amazing.

You don't know me, I'm a friend of Tim's from college who blog stalks you guys every so often. I had to comment on this post and say Are You Kidding?? You are the best Mom and I am constantly amazed at the things you are doing for your family and friends! You do a great job. I'm impressed!

Help a friend in need is #1 on my list of YOU too - I feel more connected to you this year than I have since Snow and I've greatly missed you. You are perfection in every sense of the word and my heroine. I'm so proud of you and I think Satan's bothering you through discouragement because he's having so much trouble getting you in any other way. You're brave.

I think you are amazing and put the rest of us to shame. You are incredable and nothing stops you. I am impressed by you and will always look up to you. Thanks for the example. Love ya!

Hi Corinne-I think everyone goes through those funks. I know I have. When I get to feeling down, it always helps to look at the positive side of life like you did. I think you're an amazing person and a great example. Keep you chin up :)

Thanks for your kind words. I think Melissa hit the nail on the head when she said it was PMS. I hadn't had PMS for two years and I forgot what it does to you.
Farewell my IUD. You were a faithful companion! TMI...
