“We need to learn to not take ourselves so seriously.”

Today was a crazy day!  It started out pretty good.  I drove the van and E helped me with the places I couldn’t remember how to get to and she didn’t tease me too much but then after work, I locked the keys in the van and we had to call the police to get us out.  I felt really dumb and several people laughed at me and it made me recall something that the Bishop told me on Sunday.  he said “We need to learn to not take ourselves so seriously.” laugh at self

I realized that I actually do take myself very seriously and it would be nice if I could learn to laugh at my mistakes instead of beat myself up over them.  Maybe that’s a goal I need to add to my list.  (It’s becoming a long list)

On another note, we talked about Captain Moroni and the Title of Liberty in Special needs institute class today and the teacher had us make our own banner with something that we want to remember to strive towards and on mine, I wrote, I will replace fear with faith.  I think learning not to take myself so seriously will help with that.  Maybe I won’t be so afraid of new things and doing things that are difficult if I laugh at myself and love myself more.

My scripture for today: Matthew 21:21  Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith , and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain , Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
