Life Is Short

29,445 More days until I am 100 years old.
Most likely, I will be dead before then.
That's it.
That's all the time I have.

Treat every moment as if it's your last.
Tell those you love how you feel.
Stand up for yourself.
Hug your family.
Forgive and forget.

You never know when it's your time to go.
I have less than 29,445 days to become who I am.
Today,
I'm going to start living.

Sunday Sounds

I love waking up and feeling the Sunday feeling.
Hearing the sunday silence.
Smelling.. well hopefully something yummy.
Origin: "The day of the Sun."
The son of God.

From lds.org...
"The Sabbath is the Lord's day, set apart each week for rest and worship. In Old Testament times, God's covenant people observed the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week because God rested on the seventh day when He had created the earth. After the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which occurred on the first day of the week, the Lord's disciples began observing the Sabbath on the first day of the week, Sunday"



Some of my favorite Sunday activities:

-Talk to my family/friends on phone or Skype
-Write letters to loved ones
-Bake 
-Read/listen to conference talks
-Take a nap
-Read a book
-Go for a walk
-Relax......

My Bucket is Full

Inspired by a dear friend.
I've always loved the idea of having a bucket list.
Something that is attainable and believable. 
On August 2, 2010... KayKay and I made our BL's.
And this is/was mine:
-Go to all the LDS temples in the world
-Get kissed in the rain
-Marry my soulmate for eternity
-Meet the Pope
-Swim with dolphins
-See a duckbill platypus
-Get a puppy as a present (with a big red bow)
-Adopt children.
-Ride a giraffe
-Raise a chicken egg
-Catch a fish with my bare hands
-Donate my blood (DID it! Nov 2010)
-Have a child be named after me
-Ride on a train
-See the white house in Washington D.C.
-Touch a corpse

Isn't it interesting the things that are important to us at certain times in our lives?! I love thinking about it.

What kind of things are on your bucket list?!

Fall Back.

It's FALL!.
I hadn't realized how much I'd missed photography,
until I pulled out the camera.

Ohhhh yeaaahhhh....

Where I seem to ALWAYS be waiting.

No leaves,  no fun.

The prettiest house on the block. 

Time for a romantic walk...

Discourage.ment.

You are beautiful, no matter what they say.
Yes, words...can't bring you down.
Don't you bring me down today.

Yucky weekend.
Highlight = seeing Obnette.
Downside = getting sick.

I talked to my parents a lot today.
That always helps.
Except one little thing...
My Dad warned me that I'm showing signs of depression.


Is it just because of this time of year?
Last year around this time... I was a wreck.
Crying constantly.
Emotional rollar-coaster.

It's not like my life is hard.
Physically,
Spritually,
Mentally... I can handle it.

But then comes the BiG "E"...
emotionally.

pfffft.
I wanna figure this out!
And quickly.
Because I hate feeling this way.

And I don't hate a lot of things..

Stand up 8

"Fall down seven times, stand up eight"
This proverb has stuck with me throughout my entire life. 
What a great example.
Today while I was blog stalking, I came across a cancer patients blog.
A girl my age.
Reading through her posts was like an awakening for my own life. 
I cried and cried while reading and felt almost ridiculous cause I didn't even know this girl.
But I understood her struggles.
No, I don't have cancer.
But I've felt pain.
I've broken bones.
I've lost loved ones.
I've gone through trials.
I haven't wanted to wake up in the morning.
"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning"


Life is tough.
Life is unsatisfying at times.
Life is complicated.
Life is lonely.
Life is sweet.
Life is full.
Life is a dream.
Life is growth.
Life is forgiveness.
Life is trials.
Life is JOY.
Life is.

A lot on my mind

There has been so much on my mind lately.
And lets face it, when you're always alone, you have time to think.
I miss Massachusetts.
I miss humidity which helped my hair be beautiful.
I miss my family.
I miss my friends.
I miss not knowing who I am anymore.

Since living on my own, it has opened my eyes to what I always do. 
I leave jam on the jam jar.
I always rinse the shower after I'm done.
I love talking on the phone in the dark.
I'm kind of lazy unless God motivates me.
I'm ridiculous.

Life is good.
God is gracious.
And I just hope and pray that there is something I should be learning out of all of this...
