Too Much on my Mind

Tonight is one of those nights where there is just too much going through my mind to sleep. It’s not little things either. More about my future and the things to come. Why is this time in my life so full of hard choices haha?

I miss those good ole days hanging with the guys before volleyball practice playing Halo. Or kickin it at Taco Bell after school. Driving up to Mt. Charleston and hiking up a mountain. Those were the days where the choices that you made didn’t really have Mindmuch of an effect on what your future looked like.

Now it’s a whole other ball game. What am I going to become? Who will I marry? Where will I go for school? What will I do for work? All of the questions need some answers, at least for me they do and because the answers are not all set in stone its hard for me to be complacent with them. I need to feel like my life is mapped out before I go getting lost in the woods of life.

I understand that not all questions will be answered. For example I realize that I won’t really know who I will marry till it feels right. But the other questions about what I will be doing with my life I feel should be coming to more of a round up right now in my life than just starting to be developed.

For now, lets just hope I might be able to get some sleep.

And Yet Another Day

Yep, just another day at work. That’s kinda how I like it really. When I first started this wasn’t my favorite thing in the world. But now that I have more of a designated position it’s one of my favorite places to be. I would rather spend my entire day at work than face to real world when I got home. Sad right?

Not that home is bad, because its not, I love being at home. But I just feel busy and aggressive at work, then I go home and lose that drive and desire to do anything.

I figure the money is good so this isn’t exactly a bad thing so this isn’t really a major crime of a desire.

Anyways, take it easy blog!

Pretty Funny Advice

‎"To all the girls who are in a hurry to have a boyfriend or get married, a piece of biblical advice: "Ruth patiently waited for her mate Boaz." While you are waiting on YOUR Boaz, don't settle for any of his relatives; Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheating-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az, Cheap-az, Locked-up-az, Good-for-nothing-az, Lazy-az, and especially his third cousin Beatin-yo-az. Wait on your Boaz and make sure he respects Yoaz".


Life is an interesting thing. Sometimes you are on top of the world and you ask yourself, " What could possibly bring me down?" Then those moments come when the world does a Jackie Chan move to your jugular, which means you aren't getting up for a bit. Why do we have to have these roller coasters in our lives?

I think our first reaction when things are going absolutely amazing in our lives, is to try to share whatever new found inspiration that has morphed inside us with everyone else.
"Don't stress there is no need in life that is so big you have to stress over it."
"Just relax and take life slow, no need to rush through it."
It's good and healthy to give that advise to others. They may not need it at the moment but they may eventually use it for their benefit. Also sharing what you have learned makes you feel important and needed. I recommend everyone share their feelings and discoveries in life in a non-overbearing caring way. Because these are self evident truths that don't change.

For example, we shouldn't rush through life. Why would you want to give away precious days of your life? Whether you be going through hell and back or you are just plain bored out of your mind you can always been learning and growing as a person.

But even though they are true it is always hard to be on the opposite end and hear these statements. How do you explain to a homeless child that there are lessons he needs to learn from his trials? How do you tell POW that he shouldn't wish for tomorrow, that he should embrace each day as it comes?

You can't, and if you can you better do it like mentioned above, in a carings non-overbearing manner.

Think back to a day where you felt like things were just wrong. The day you put yourself down. Told yourself you weren't good enough, fun enough, happy enough. Do you think that someone could have told you just to be happy and your mood would have changed? If you are anything like me, it makes it worse :P.

I think that the reason we go on the roller coaster in life is to appreciate the good times when they come, and learn from the bad times while they are here. How could we ever know what true happiness is, if we never knew what true sadness was.

Live your life, don't let days pass you by. Always look for the good in things. Keep your glass half full. Life is more enjoyable when you can learn to overcome your trials and love your life.
