Do-Get-Be Better

On Monday, I attended my first Junior League general membership meeting of the 2012-2013 year. The meeting started out with our current president talking about how she wanted to become a better person this year.  Ironically, that was the unintentional theme of the evening.
This really got me thinking not only about doing more and better work through Junior League, but in all aspects of my life.  I want to be a better Christina, wife, daughter, granddaughter, dog mommy, daughter-in-law, friend, and citizen.  I want to be a better blogger, runner, travel junkie and Pure Barre enthusiast.  I want to eat better, drink more water and get more sleep. 

While there's no real easy way to gauge exactly how to accomplish these things, I feel that I can do more with my time and my resources to not only better myself, but the world as a whole.   I'm a little nervous about stepping out of the box more and trying new things, but isn't life about taking risks?

I challenge you to take on this mantra as well.  It's never too late to start becoming the person you've always dreamed of being.

I've always thought that Junior League would be such a neat organization to join...particularly the fellowship and philanthropy, reminds me of my favorite parts of being in a sorority :) And what a fabulous mantra - I hope I am always striving for "better".
