It takes COURAGE

My room is a mess. I have a cough that is taking the life out of me. I am tired. I am stressed. I am lost in love. I am perfectly okay.
There is simple beauty in knowing that tomorrow is a new day. I am just beyond thankful that I have many more tomorrows. I am thankful that there are 365 new beginnings in a year, and that there are 7 new beginnings in each week. Each day is a brand new day. Each day is the day where I could become that person I am supposed to be. The same goes for you. You have 365 chances to get things right. You have 7 opportunities during the week to wake up a whole new person. Whoa. Is your mind blown yet? It takes courage to be the person you are destined to be. Whenever I think of courage my mind goes back to the Wizard of Oz. What a gift courage would be for the lion. Lions are supposed to be strong, talented, fearless, and courageous. It never ceases to amaze me that a girl in a blue dress with sparkly red shoes could rise up to the challenge to lead the lost…

Anchor in Christ

Life is a hard battle. Every single day is filled with the constant turmoil of things like: "What comes next?" "Am I good enough?" "Is my future going to be filled with success?" " Is my faith strong enough to withstand the evil of this world?" I wish I had all the answers for you, but I don't. Most of my blogs are filled with my love of the Savior and the blessings he has brought into my life and how he has gotten me through some rough times. Sharing my love for our Savior is easy, telling you my weaknesses and struggles has been the hard part. Today I saw a picture of an anchor. You might be asking yourself what point am I going to make dealing with the anchor and here's my answer. Recently I have struggled with keeping my relationship close with God. I, like a boat, have been tossed and thrown like a boat during a storm. Every single day we are all faced with worldly things. We hear hate in the music on the radio, we see filth in show…

A Whole New World

Today has been a day where I have done a lot of reflecting on 2011. Yes, I know it's over now, but looking back I would have to say 2011 was one of the most memorable years of my life. Some of those memories were good like graduating from High School, spending my summer in Utah, falling in love, trying sushi, buying a leather jacket, starting college, and watching time fly by. Some of those memories are hard to talk about like losing my grandma, suffering from a terrible broken heart, watching my first job close down, and learning that life gets harder the older I seem to get. Last year was a year full of growing up, becoming tougher, finding that all my strength lies in Christ, learning to love myself, and forgiveness. As I reflected I found myself becoming sad and confused for some reason so I did what I normally do when life doesn't make sense and I turned on my laptop and started writing this. Goodbye, 2011. Hello, 2012. Now is the time where I make those resolutions I mak…
