some thoughts

So last night, I felt the spirit so strong.  I read through a conference talk, my patriarchal blessing, my scriptures, listened to church music, and It was just incredible.  I stayed up all night organizing and unpacking the rest of my stuff.  I didn’t finish til around 1:30AM so I thought it was odd that I was getting a text message.  I checked it and it was so mean and rude! There were a few rude text messages from this person that were just completely unnecessary.  I ended up not being able to sleep and luckily my brothers were up so I hung out with them and texted my boyfriend to let him know I wanted to hear from him when he woke up.  As soon as my phone flashed red I was so happy just from that.  We talked about it and he made me feel so much better.  I don’t know how I got lucky enough to have someone like him.  He is so sweet and I just can’t even describe how much I like him!
After he turned it around and made me happy, I was able to sleep.  But later that morning I went out to my car and he left me the cutest little thing.  He used sticky notes to make a smiley face and each sticky note had a quote on it. and they were exactly what I needed to hear.  I was just so happy and I don’t know what I did to deserve him but I am so glad I have him.
Then I got up to get ready for work and I had another text from my boss giving me the day off! Boy, did I need to hear that! So I got to relax and hang out with my siblings.
The Lord really does know us.  He knows what we need and he uses worthy people as instruments in his hands to deliver to us what we need.  I am so thankful for that, and for people listening to that little voice.  I am such a blessed girl and I am so thankful for this Gospel that I was raised in and for the relationship that I have with my Father in Heaven.
Everything happens for a reason, sometimes we just need a reminder!

I am happy. :)

So tonight, I got home from a friends house.  It was late... like 1:30 and my dad is up watching something.. with my sister who waited up for me.
My dad looks at me, and is just floored! he said, "The person you were just with makes you so happy.  I've never seen your countenance so bright and HAPPY!!"
and it's true, I am just plain and simply happy.
Sure, things go wrong, i get frustrated, plans change at the last minute, and not everything is perfect!  But circumstances aren't what decides whether or not you are happy.  YOU do.

Happiness is when what you think, what you feel, and what you do are all in Harmony.
and I am HAPPY!

On another note, some people just make you want to be a better person.  It's so strange to think someone has that affect on me... or that I have that affect on THEM.
But it's good.  It's definitely good.

I am going to breakfast tomorrow morning... I am HUNGRYYYY.  mmmmm,
goodnight <3

I love being me!

So This last few weeks have had it's ups and downs just as life goes but I have had such an incredible time!

I've met many a new people and friends and have gone to multiple social gatherings that us young adults like to call parties, and gotten to know some people even more so in smaller groups.

I have had a blast.  I have made many friends and just really enjoyed spending my time with them.  :D

Work at LacyBella Designs has been good.  We are super swamped but that's a good thing, most of the time. It's just a little stressful trying to get caught up!  This next week we are going to be featured on Groupon and so we will get even more orders this next couple weeks of people redeeming their gift cards!
My boss is really cool, and very nice.  She is really flexible on my hours and such so i still get to have a life! I love it.    We always have "The Office" playing in the background too.  Nothing wrong with a little comedic relief!

anyways, so, Life is good. and I could complain, but what's the use?   I am pretty happy right now!

I just love being me!

I got a job!

I recently landed a job with LacyBella Designs which is an online vinyl lettering company and it's practically the perfect job for me!  Hours are flexible and constant, weekly pay, and a chill work environment!  I get to make money, save for ASU, and have a life all at the same time!

I am loving my new singles ward.  gone a few fun dates already and am looking forward to meeting even more people the more that I get involved.  Everyone in my ward is really welcoming and I love it.

Finally have a car to drive and can afford insurance and today was my first day on the road.  It's a stick shift so it makes it that much more exciting for me!

Note to all you out there:  if you take the time to do something, don't do it half way.  If you're going to spend precious time on something, do the best you can.
