Another Karmic Possibility

Regarding yesterday's post, it may have escaped my attention that perhaps I'm simply not as good a  person as I might have imagined.  I remembered this when my smoke alarm battery alert woke me up about 12:45, cutting my five hours of sleep into four and a half.

Sleepily yours,
Rachel

In preparing a future seminary lesson this afternoon, I found something that really sums up the way I ACTUALLY feel about being good (or trying to be good):

"It is not enough for anyone just to go through the motions. The commandments, ordinances, and covenants of the gospel are not a list of deposits required to be made in some heavenly account. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a plan that shows us how to become what our Heavenly Father desires us to become." -- Elder Dallin H. Oaks, "The Challenge to Become," Ensign, November 2000

So just in case you wanted to tell me to get over myself and be happy, I'm already getting a cosmic nudge.
