Grown up

Sometimes I want to believe I will always be the baby, the daughter that never has to be grown up.
But then there comes days just like today when I am reminded that is not the case.

I am a grown up!! Believe it or not, 24 is considered an adult....CRAZYNESS, right?! LOL

There may be days when I completely lose myself and my strength

And that just makes me human!

When it comes to being grown up, I think that certain people forget that even though I am now almost 25, I am still their daughter, granddaughter, niece, sister, cousin and there are things or situations that unfortunately
I can not help you with.
I am not saying that I am not always going to be there for you when you need me, because I believe family should be our number one support system.
What I am saying is that if you are going through a rough patch in life and it just plane sucks....

P.U.S.H-Pray until something happens

Pray to find a way to get over a loss.
Pray for strength
Pray for patience
Pray for peace within yourself
Ask for guidance
Find a hobby
Find the positive in everyday life :)

I will always love you and it's because I do love you so much that it hurts to see anyone I love hurting or going through a tough time.

I honestly do my best when it comes to being grown up or the bigger person in a situation to give any advice I can or to simply just listen.
But there are times when I am going to need the same support!

Believe it or not I am still a baby, trying to find her way in this crazy, beautiful world and somedays I just need my mommy & daddy.

Thanks for listening!

DaYs & GoAlS!

Did you know that it takes only 21 days to make something a habit?!

I need to keep that in mind this month while i'm blogging. Doing this somehow makes me feel accountable for things i'm doing on the daily. So if sending silly blog posts into the crazy world that is the internet then so be it. BRING IT ON DAY 2!

I rejoined the gym the other night...another great habit to pick up. Again I have to just remember
21 DAYS! LA Fitness we are going to be GR8 friends.

And speaking of days, only 78 days until I am leaving on a jet plane to KOREA
11 days since Shaynold left...WOW....I can't say it like that because it already seems like it has been months. But if I look at the positive I at least only have 10 more days until its a habit for me to be used to him being gone. Not that it helps the fact that he is in fact away, but it helps :)

Only 1 day until the weekend!!! Now that is something to celebrate.


HELLO.....Health Habit Goals:
  • Blog everyday for a month
  • Go to the gym at least 3 x a week maybe 4
  • Read for book club :)
  • Talk to Shayne on Skype everyday *crosses fingers*
  • Hang out with friends/roomies & family
  •  Go to work! (Duh)
  • Go to events/outtings with friends when asked
  • Think of fun things to do alone or with friends

What are some of your health habits you want to start? or already do?

Isn't that so true?!

Have a great Thursday everyone!!!

Bloggin' for a cause!

That cause being my SANITY!!

You see people, my loving, sweet, handsome boyfriend aka Pilot aka Shaynold has left me in the states for a WHOLE YEAR...alone, yeah that's right. Rude-ugh! LOL I'm really just kidding, but no really it is kinda sad. He is stationed in Kunsan, Korea right now and I am so very proud of him to say the least. I know he is going to do awesome and make the most of his time there. Shoot he better! So, I have made a goal for myself that i'm going to do my very best to stay busy and be involved in fun exciting things and I think that blogging will be one of those fun things to do. So you're gonna be hearing a lot more from me!

Starting out....
I'm going to set a goal to blog every day for a month....except weekends. ;) I think it will be great for me to be creative and will force me to find something to blog about. It might not always be interesting, but hey it's a start. And it will be FUN!
