Wisdom, Humor, and Inspiration in December

 There was a lot of wisdom, humor, and inspiration last month, because that's how December tends to be!

This brings me back to math class and my general feeling about it. πŸ˜† Although I did kind of like long division.

Incidentally, this is one of the best books I've ever read.

This was a really good article. I'm a chronic over-thinker, but I think I've been getting better over the past couple of years. Lots of good advice here.

Well, maybe think just a little bit about it first!

This reminds me of how when I was young, when there were "swear words" like "hell" in hymns, I wouldn't sing that word and felt a little bit superior to everyone else who did. πŸ˜†

No Taylor Swift here!

Guilty of both perpetrating this and experiencing this every once in awhile! 
Although I hardly ever unfriend anyone anymore now that you can just unfollow people. I rarely do that, either, but sometimes it has to be done.

This is great for anxiety-prone people like myself:

The concept of the Sabbath Day is one of my favorite things about the gospel. It blesses my life greatly, every single week.

More hilarity from The Babylon Bee πŸ˜„

Although it should be "LDS Family Proud OINKS" πŸ˜‰ Babylon Bee should hire me as an editor! 

I love the qualities of honesty and integrity. I did a life-changing project about these virtues years ago and it changed me forever. I truly do strive for honesty in the things that I do and say. Despite what it says here, I'm not perfect at it (yet), but it is one of those rare things that you can nearly achieve perfection in.
On a related note, ever since I stopped lying or stretching the truth about not feeling well to get out of things years ago, I hardly ever get sick anymore. Blessings of honesty!

I liked this final text from the Light the World campaign. 

The never-ending dilemma! πŸ˜†

I rejoined Instagram at the end of December after eight years of being off it. It's been good to be back on it again, although I'm still figuring out some of the newer things, like Reels and those temporary story things (or whatever they are) at the top. But there's a lot of good stuff on there, like this:
P.S. I was already in my first Reel! For work!

I've found the concept of radical acceptance to be very helpful in my life. It helps me to be happier and more at peace with things that I have no control over.
