Many of us create a civil war within ourselves by internalizing problems of fear, uncertainty, self-doubt, and worryโ€”often over things we can do preciously little about.

If we spend our time and energy worrying about being too tall or too short or about our freckles and warts and big noses, then I fear we are doomed to certain defeat.

The person who is engaged in such a constant internal fight has little energy and power left to win the outside battles.

To be successful in the many skirmishes of life, you cannot afford to be your own worst enemy.

And taking the battles insideโ€”firing mortal shells into your very soulโ€”is potentially one of the most damaging of all human activities.

Believe it or not, you can recover from poor grades or a missed date or a flat tire and dead battery on the car.

But if you turn such outside matters into self-recrimination and self-criticism, letting them damage your spirit and your sense of self-worth and esteem, then you have begun a battle with a very high mortality rate indeed.

Be more caring for yourself and as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend in need. You are in need, and you ought to be your own best friend. - Patricia T. Holland

George Herbert Mead, a great analyst of human behavior was especially interested in the human mind and in the way it operates... According to him, โ€œWe can hear ourselves talking, and the import of what we say is the same to ourselves [as] it is to others.โ€

We all talk to ourselves, don't we? Then why donโ€™t we improve the quality of the conversation?

James T. Duke once wrote, โ€œMy thoughts become more meaningful and more holy when I direct them toward [my] Father [in Heaven]โ€

When I follow that practice, my self-talk becomes more lofty, more encouraging, and it loses the ingredients of fear and doubt.

The result of that kind of personal conversation can bring, for virtually all of us, near-perfect inner peace and a much more positive view of those outward battles we face.

Best of all, we will no longer fight on two fronts; we will focus our strength on the kinds of battles God very much prefers that we fight.

As Paul said in another setting, โ€œTherefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become newโ€ (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Welcome to a new year and what can be literally a new life in Christ, where all things become new and old things pass away. - Patricia T. Holland

I think the Lord is looking for people who are truly contrite.

Humility is very becoming to any of us, and humility comes from an honest and balanced recognition of both our limitations and our strengths.

But I also think that the Lord will not be particularly comfortable dwelling with a person who (to the exclusion of all other joys and blessings in life) ponders continually his or her problems, who is obsessed and finally immobilized by them, who hasnโ€™t learned to bear those limitations serenely.

That isnโ€™t humility, it is near-blasphemy.

When you dwell on your limitations excessively, to the point that they affect your inner view and strength, you mock God in his very creation.

You deny the divinity within you.

You resist the gift of Christ on the cross.

So be patient in your pursuit of perfection. - Patricia T. Holland

We are children of God and must see ourselves as God sees us, recognizing the positive in ourselves, the part God loves so much, even as we work on what we may think are our freckles and warts and blemishes and big noses.

You can change how you see yourself. You can! That is why a new year is so exhilarating. We have the opportunity to see things better than before.

It is possible to live with all your power in the present. You can replace old doubts with new hopes.

The choice to follow the Savior was easy when I was younger. My parents were there to guide me and teach me to always "choose the right." When I was in college, I moved out of our house to study in a different city. I was given multiple chances to choose to follow the Savior or not.

Being in a new environment with new people, I was constantly placed in situations that made me question my integrity. It was during my first year in college that I was exposed to the worldly things a "worldly" city can offer.

I would go out with new friends and though I don't take part in what they were doing, I see how they waste themselves in alcohol, drugs, and idle time.

It opened my eyes to a lot of things. It made me ask myself, "What would the Savior feel seeing me in this scenario?" I have wasted a lot of time trying to test the waters - thinking that I cannot be tempted into doing these things. I was just there for the company. But who am I kidding, right?

When I was with my groupies, I would miss learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ with friends who share the same goals and beliefs as I do. I would miss my parents telling me to go home early and study.

I regret a lot of things looking back but I am grateful I followed the promptings of the Spirit to do better with my time in college. The choice to follow the Savior did not come easy that time because of peer pressure and because I was alone. Nevertheless, I am strengthened by the faith that I have of His undying love.

I don't want to break His trust by doing trivial things. My relationship with the Savior has snapped me out of regret and misery many times over and I am eternally indebted to Him.

Looking back, I learned my lessons and if I have one thing to take with me from all those rowdy nights, it is this: We can always hear Him even in the midst of noise and chaos. All we have to do is listen...

My life would have been so much different had I not listened. Now that I am a parent myself, my choices make me see farther than I ever did before - the repercussions of the wrong ones and the blessings of those that are right. - Joanna
