How do we balance time to serve others and taking care of our selves? Sometimes in life I feel like I don't do enough service. I want to learn to be able to have a balance of serving others and taking care of myself. I sometimes feel like I am selfish because I don't serve people often enough. What are some suggestions that people have as to how to better balance things?

School is great, and a little busy. Work is good. I recently sprained my ankle which is no fun. I will be aunt to a nephew in a month or two. I like white gravy. I went to the zoo in Logan on Labor day. It was a lot of fun. There were lots of birds and mammals. There were some cute wallabies at the zoo. They look like minature kangaroos. I have taken some fun pictures. What animal is seen in this picture? Hope everyone is well.

So today I was whistling and I thought what causes whistling. It is interesting to find that it is the vibration of the lips and the air that is around it. I had a lot of fun whistling many tunes today. I am excited for my symphonic band class. I have had one rehearsal so far. It is a lot of fun to play the clarinet. Have a good day :)

Words of Wisdom

The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
