I'm Trying...

So I realize I have been slacking about blogging about the beauty in my life. But, I still end each day thinking about all the beauty I have been blessed with, and its truly amazing to me all the blessings I am given. Maybe I just haven't been as grateful before, but I have an amazing life. I have the most amazing parents, an amazing very patient man, a wonderful inspirational little sister, and roommates that are more than I could have ever asked for, and I am grateful that I have been able to grow so close to them all! I have found that it's the little things that make or break my day, so I find myself trying to make the best of everything, no matter how big or small. granted I still have a quick temper, so it's a work in progress.
And now for my favorite song right now! Sparks Fly- Julia Sheer and Tyler Ward. No, I do not like the Taylor Swift version because I do not like Taylor Swift.

The Simple Things

Today the beauty I found...or that found me was uncontrollable laughter. The kind of laughter that when your done you are coughing, wheezing, gasping for air and still somehow laughing, and I am grateful for the person who brings the laughter or the fun side out in me. In my psychology class today I learned how the mind puts different meanings into the different ways to hold hands...and I am grateful for a man who holds my hand at the most random moments, because every time he grabs my hand it is inevitable that I will smile. and even though I am ready for summer weather again, I was happy to see the sparkles falling from the sky this evening and blanketing everything they landed on, well because that means tomorrow I get to go snowmobiling! :)

Just having completed a deep conversation with my wonderful, amazing roommates, I realize that I don't look for the good in life or the beauty in things around me enough. I criticize, stress, worry, and over-analyze far too much, but not once looking at the beauty of the moment. Even though things can be stressful, and worrisome at times, there is beauty and good in everything, even when things are at the bottom, the Lord sends something beautiful or good to us. I feel like I do good at realizing the beauty in life for a couple days then go back to my normal stressed out self. So, as it is a new year, and the custom is to create a new you, I am going to just better the me that I am by recognizing the beauty and good in life, everyday, even if it is only something little, and I plan to blog about it(because I feel like that will help me be more active about doing it.) So for the next 365 days get ready to hear about the beauty that I see everyday in my life. Today, the amazingness of sitting with roommates and talking deeply about seemingly nothingness. And the much needed wonderful insight of an amazing mother and good friends, who may not know the whole situation but seem to hit the nail on the head by telling my exactly what I need to hear.

"Amen Hallelujah!"

"Amen, Hallelujah! He's just what I've been waiting for, I can't wait for what's in store."
