With Talent Comes Hard Work
You have no idea how long your life will last. It could be 80 years, or it could be 80 seconds. Live each day as if you knew you were not gifted with another. Work hard for your dreams and use the talents you were blessed with to the best of your ability. That way, when it is your turn to enter into heaven, God will be able to look at you and say, “you have made me so proud.” I...
I want the heart Tiffany ring so bad. Do I need it? Not at all But it is so adorable!
Wow, I am so lucky to be where I am. I never would have dreamed that something this amazing could happen to me. My life has turned out to be such a beautiful blessing. Some people aren’t in school. Some people aren’t given the opportunity to follow their dreams. I was fortunate enough to have God bless me with such amazing dreams and the motivation to go out and reach them. I...
And when I think of how you treated me, you proved me right.– Medina
You are beautiful. You are smart. You are talented. You are so much better than average. You are kind. You are honest. You have all the potential in the world. You are strong. You are inspiring. You have the power to do anything. You have heart. You are powerful. You are perfect.
I Miss You More Than I Ever Thought Possible
You ran across my mind again today. I’m thousands of miles away and you’ve forgotten my existence. Things are different now. You should know that. And sometimes, I just wish you wanted me in your life…. I wish I meant something to you
The struggle for excellence. The desire to be something better while still trying to hold on to the person you’ve already worked to become. I don’t know how people lose themselves in this, but it seems to be the constant case. Desire gets deep inside the minds of people and destroys the personality that has been created. Why let go of who you are. There should be no need to lose...
I hate goodbyes. They are never something we want to experience, especially with people we are close to. I had to make the hardest goodbye today. To my mom. Since I graduated high school, we have gotten so close. Spending mother daughter days together, acting stupid and going out for fun. Today, I was forced to let that go. She is on a plane going back home and I had to watch her drive...
….is so beautiful. I have been so blessed lately. God has granted me the opportunity to follow my dreams. And I couldn’t be more thankful. My last week has been filled with long practices, lots of conditioning, and the struggle between settling for average and achieving better. With all these things thrown at me in a bundle, I’ve had to trust God more than ever. He has...
So when do you realize you truly love someone? I learned this about 18 months ago, when I fell in love with Alex. But what still amazes me is how I’m reminded the extent of our love on a daily basis. I went out with a big group of friends tonight and had a blast. We went to a restaurant in downtown Portland that seems ordinary, until you have leftovers that need a container. They take...
hmm so what to write about…..today was a good day! I worked until 4, which kinda sucked. But I got 40 hours this week so I am super excited for my next paycheck. After work, I went on a run with Alex, which also kinda sucked. But I had to and I didn’t do too horribly. 3 miles in 80 degree weather is alright. I still need to improve a lot and I know I can do it. After the run, we...
Have you ever been so disappointed in yourself that you could barely stand it? But there was absolutely nothing you could do to change it at that moment? Ugh. That’s how I felt today. I have been running so much lately. Miles and miles trying to get ready for my timed 5 mile in now a week. I got so good, up to 4. But there was a problem I didn’t think I needed to worry about. I...
If you were told you were going to die in one week, how would you spend your final days? Wow this is a hard question. Honestly, I don’t think it would be necessarily what I do, but instead, who I do these things with. I think that if I had 7 days, I would be terrified of how to use them. I would hope that no one else knew I was going to die, so that we could all appreciate the time...
