Goal Keeping

"A goal properly set is halfway reached."

My two big new years resolutions (among many more)
included these things:

1) Keeping my nails nice and long. 
Also known as.. no biting.

2) Less distracting and negative media
Also known as.. no PG-13 movies.

And guess what. 
For exactly 60 days, I have been keeping these goals!!!



Congrats for me!!! Whoot!

Precious and Sweet

It takes a long time to grow an old friend.
This topic is really personal to me because I have always relied on my friends for support and confidence. But my senior year of high school, I had no close friends. I realized the benefits of having a close friend and partner in crime. Another thing I realized is that time changes you. 
People move on.
Things change.
Love can fade.
Best friends can become sweet memories of the past.
Appreciate the moments!! You never know when they will be swept away from you.
Hold a true friend with both hands. 
And hang on tight.

"But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine."

Soul-mates

Do you believe in soulmates?

"Once, a long, long time ago, all people had four legs and two heads. And then the gods threw down thunderbolts and split everyone into two. Each half then had two legs and one head. But the separation left both sides with a desperate yearning to be reunited. Because they each shared the same soul. And ever since then, all people spend their lives searching for the other half of their soul."


Short question with so many different answers!
Some replies from my friends and co-workers and complete strangers:

"YES!"
"Absolutely!"
"no."
"Of corse not!"
"Always! Ha, did you find yours?"
"why do you always ask random questions?" (my favorite reply)

When asked to go more in depth with their answers, I had some interesting thoughts. 

"We make out soul mates. No one person is perfect for us. We become perfect for each other over time. There are lots of people we are compatible with and over time we come to be soul mates through our interactions and changing to be better."

"I believe that there is someone out there that will love you and you'll love them forever, a perfect match... but I also believe that our experiences change us so that person isn't a set person. There isn't only one man/woman for one person."

"You know what, sometimes I feel like Heavenly Father has ways of helping us find the person in our lives that can help us, and it just works out! So, in a way, YES, I do believe in soul-mates."

"No, I do not believe in soul-mates because I don't think they even exist. Marriages are about way more than just initial spark and common interests."

"I believe everyone has multiple soul-mates. If things don't work out with the first one, you still have another chance. But people are snow flakes, not puzzle pieces. We don't fit "precisely" with anyone. And that's how it should be, otherwise we wouldn't need other people."

"No I don't. I think people have multiple other people they are compatible with and its up to you to find them!"

What do you think? Do you believe there is a "special someone" out there waiting for you?!
