Don't Be Adequate, Be Extraordinary

5:59 PM

New Year's Eve was very relaxed and fun, Randy and I spent a lot of the break feeling sick, so it was awesome to spend the night eating delicious food, playing games and watching movies.

I've spent the last couple days thinking about what this new year means for me and for our family. I've thought about the past year, the person I was, and the person I want to be.

So I made a list of resolutions like I do most years, but this year I wanted there to be almost a theme to overlook who I want to be and how I want to live in 2017. It was as I was teaching Sunday School that it came to me: Don't Be Adequate, Be Extraordinary.

I want to spend this year being kinder, attending the temple regularly, reading more books, and being happier. I just haven't been able to stop thinking about how I'm adequate at a lot of things, and it's time to be extraordinary. I want to be an extraordinary friend, an extraordinary wife, employee, coworker, teacher, daughter, sister, and more. It's so easy to slip into adequacy. And from there it's easy to slip into nothingness.

So for me this year, it's about pushing past doing so-so, being OK, being content. I want to push myself to be the best I can possibly be.

Happy 2017 to you all, it's going to be a great year!
