"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is BEAUTIFUL!!!" - Sophia Loren

"Come what may, and love it. I know why there must be opposition in all things. Adversity, if handled correctly, can be a blessing in our lives. We can learn to love it. As we look for humor, seek for the eternal perspective, understand the principle of compensation, and draw near to our Heavenly Father, we can endure hardship and trial." - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

"Happiness does not depend upon what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you. It is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life." -Spencer W. Kimball

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." -Unknown

Day 12: Something You Never Get Compliments On

I'm not sure what exactly this means. Is it something I think I should get complimented on or what? I don't know what to say here. Everything that I can think of right know that I'd like to be complimented on I do get compliments on. I guess something that I feel I do well that I don't get complimented on is including others in what is going on. I don't know if this fits here but I can't really think of anything else at the moment :)

Day 11: Something That People Seem to Compliment You the Most On

Something that I get compliments on all the time is my hair. I have so many people tell how beautiful my curls and they wish that they could have hair like mine. This one day at work I was down in the cafe on my lunch break and a girl I work with was like "how do you always look so cute all the time? You're hair always looks so nice." I was a little embarressed. I just feel better about myself if I look put together when I go out so I always make sure my hair looks nice and I that's what I get the most compliments on more than anything else.

Day 10: Someone You Need to Let Go, or Wish You Didn’t Know

To be honest I can't think of anyone that I wish I had never met because all the people that I have known in my life have taught me a lesson or something about myself. I'm grateful for the experiences that I've had and the people that I have known in my life. I wouldn't trade any of my experiences with the people I've known for anything. So maybe I didn't exactly answer this one but that's how I feel.

Day 9: Someone You Didn’t Want to Let Go, But Just Drifted

Someone that I'm sad to say that I've drifted away from is one of the best friends I've ever had, Wayne. We used to be really close and talk all the time and now we've pretty much drifted a part. I think it has a lot do with living in different states. But also that our lives are going in different directions. We met when we were both working at Wienerschnitzel and we became really good friends. After I moved to Utah we stayed in touch but over the last year and a half we have kept that much in contact and it makes me pretty sad. He's a great guy and it's too bad that we haven't stayed as close as we once were.

Day 8: Someone Who Treat You Like Crap

Someone who treated me like crap was this guy, Nathan, that I worked with back home. I did him a favor by testifying for him at a court hearing and after that he acted like I owed him something. After I did a favor for him. It was ridiculous. He kept acting like I owed him something and wasn't very nice to me after that. I felt like he took advantage of me and I didn't appreciate it.

Day 7: Someone Who Has Made Your Life Worth Living

Someone who has really made my life worth living is my sister in law, Nicole. I have known Nicole for about 3 and a half years now and she's one of my very best friends. I can't imagine my life without her. I can talk to her about anything and she's one of my biggest sounding boards. Nicole, I love you!!! My life would be so different without you. I'm so glad that you're a part of my family forever :)

Day 6: Something You Hope You Never Have to Do

Something that I hope I never have to do is look back on my life with regret. Over the past few years I've learned that you should live life to the fullest and not sit around waiting for some "thing" to happen. I don't want to look back 30 years from now and regret not doing or doing something.

Day 5: Something You Hope to Do in Your Life

Something that I hope to do in my life is get married and have a family. I know that may sound like a cliche mormon girl thing to say. But it's something that I've always dream about and that I really want more then anything else.

Day 4: Something to Forgive Someone Else For

I'm not sure what to say here. I'm not trying to say that I'm perfect or anything I'm just having a hard time of thinking of something to forgive someone else for. I think the biggest thing that comes to mind at this point is forgiving all the people in the last year that have hurt me by asking me why I'm not married or why I'm not getting married soon. When people say that to me it's really a little hurtful. It's not like I don't want to be married. It just hasn't happened yet. It was especially weird when my sister got married and a ton of my dad's doctors kept asking me if I was the one getting married. It's like people expect me to be married because I'm almost 23 and have graduated from college. I guess this whole tirade is mostly about forgiving people for judging me when they don't know my situation.

Day 3: Something You to Forgive Yourself For

This is a hard truth for me to face. I have been thinking all day about something I need to forgive myself for. It's one thing to admit it to myself but it's a whole different ball game to admit it like this.

Last year I wasn't very nice to a friend of mine and didn't treat her very well during one of the happiest an exciting times of her life. You know who you are so I won't mention a name. With time I came to accept that I wasn't being the nicest person but I felt awful for it. I've come to the understanding that I need to forgive myself for the mistake I made in treating my friend horribly. I made some bad choices and I need to just forgive myself for those choice because life moves and you grow from the mistakes you make in the past.

Day 2: Something You Love About Yourself

Something that I love about myself is that I can do so many different things with my hair and it looks good pretty much however I choose to do it for the day. Something that isn't physical that I love about myself is that I have the ability to be friends with so many different kinds of people. I have so many different friends that I've made in different settings and ways.

Day 1: Something You Hate About Yourself

Something that I hate about myself is that I often get down on myself because I compare myself to other girls that I know and I feel like I fall short of what I "should be". This might sound a little weird. Sometimes I look at myself and what I am doing and I feel like I don't compare very well with some of the girls that I know.

30 Days of Truth

i decided to take a leaf out of Nicole's book. She's doing what's called 30 days of honesty. Basically there are 30 things you have to honestly tell about yourself.

November is Here

I can't believe it's already November. It seems like that just yesterday it was May and the summer was beginning. Now fall is practically on us and winter is coming fast on it's heels. It makes me sad and happy at the same time. I've missed the snow a little but I love the fall weather.

I haven't been up to much of anything too exciting. Mostly just working and living life. Halloween is done and over with. I'm not the biggest fan of the holiday so I wasn't that excited for it. Because the holiday fell on Sunday it was celebrated mostly on Friday. I went to Oktoberfest at my complex and a party my stake had. Today, my ward had a Halloween party a day late. It was a costume party and chili cook off with a trunk or treat. It was pretty fun. I dressed up as maid Marian and my friend, Ryley, was Robin Hood. It was pretty awesome.

I went on a date this last weekend for the first time in a while. It was a kinda short date but it was really fun and I had a really good time. We went to Wal Mart and bought stuff to make S'mores. He bought me a reeses while we were standing in line and it was really cute. We went back to his apartment and colored in coloring books and ate s'mores and then he walked me home. It was short but sweet and I had a lot of fun. :)

It's crazy to think that the holidays are just around the corner. Which means my birthday is just around the corner too!! Haha, not that I'm counting days or anything. Just saying that the year is fast coming to a close. Crazy times. It seems like as a get older that time goes by faster and faster.
