One sign of maturing age is the realization that the world doesn't revolve around you. Sometimes this can seem like sad news, but with perspective we don't have to worry too much about what others think about us nor solely do and get everything our way. One sure way to help our confidence regarding peer pressure and worrying about what others think is to develop moral values. If we seek to draw closer to God and follow a moral compass, then we can find more happiness without thought of what others may or may not think about us.
March 21st thought for the day - You probably would not worry about what people think of you if you knew how seldom they did.

Writing about myself here reminds me of all my English assignments at the beginning of the school year were I had to write an essay about myself or one of those get-to-know you socials where everyone has to say several new & interesting things about themselves. I never did get smart and save my answers to use them again. For some reason I always feel hesitant and at times unclear about what I should say about myself that would be interesting. So this is me at a glimpse: I grew up in Rockville, Maryland - went to Wheaton High School - went to Ricks College - met my husband while at school - am a mother of six children - live in Rexburg, Idaho - received my associates' degree from BYU-I in 2011 - actively a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - actively volunteer in the Boy Scouts of America program in Cub Scouts - and like to organize and create things.
