Loving myself and becoming more like Christ

I often try to be aware of whether or not I am DOING what God wants me to do. Okay, I admit that sometimes I stress about it. There are so many things to do, and not enough time, and I want to make sure I am doing the best things. I often berate myself for wasting time. This morning as I prayed, I worriedly asked Heavenly Father, "but am I doing the right thing?" The answer came clearly, "stop worrying about DOING the right thing perfectly. It is more important to BECOME the right person through whatever you do and the power of Jesus Christ's Atonement." I am so grateful to experience life that helps me become a better person. I am so grateful for a Savior to atone for my sins and mistakes and even reclaim them into something good: a learning and growing experience to help me become more like Him.
