Good morning and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s topic comes to us from the Self-Reflection category and the card says “What lessons did you learn this past year – how have you grown and improved?”
I’m finding this question interesting because I’m having to think about what’s happened throughout the past year and what lessons I’ve learned, or how I’ve improved.
One thing that I’ve improved on is being better organized. You wouldn’t be able to tell it necessarily from my room at the moment (home improvement causes things to move about the home until things can be placed back to where they go), but I’ve been working hard to better organize my books and my belongings (I have so many books it’s not even funny.) and using my available space better.
I’ve recently gone through my desk, and other spaces in my room and cleared out items that either need to be thrown away or given away because I no longer use them or wear them. I do need to actually follow through on that last one, but I do have a stack of things that need to go to Goodwill or Deseret Industries, but that is something that I’ve been improving upon.
Am I amazing at being organized? Absolutely not, I’m at best just barely above horrible. But am I improving? Absolutely, and that’s what’s important. As Colin Firth’s character in the movie “Kingsman: The Secret Service” said, “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” And that’s what’s important. Being a better person today than you were yesterday. None of us is going to be perfect until we make it to Heaven and as such we should be striving to improve, but not worried about getting everything perfect.
So there we go, a lesson I’ve learned and how I’ve improved in the last year.
