After listening to Conference*
I know I need to change.
I am a creative person
who doesn’t enjoy structure.
I do what I feel like
then find undone
what I really wanted,
or needed to do.

At that point,
I push myself to
catch up
Running past my strength,
I quickly tire.
Tired, I putter
ignoring goals
til I recover my energy
Then behind,
run once again to catch up.
I know the Lord can help me
overcome my weaknesses
and turn them into strengths.
He can help me learn to pace.

*General Conference  is when leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints speak to the members
