i guess i just don’t like it when people are unreasonably unhappy.
don’t get me wrong - there is a time to mourn. a time to be unhappy. when there’s reason. i get it.
reminded me of the time when you carried me across the ice because i hurt my knee.
definitely my best friend.
it’s time to be me.
Coach almost made me cry today. So close.
this is my goal ~ believe in myself
make it your goal too.
why? we have a weekly video assignment and we’re supposed to write a 250 word essay response to it.
i just wrote the first one. it’s a whole 81 words. fantastic.
just heard my seven year old brother tell my mom that he feels fat.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” - Audrey Hepburn

From the grave You’ve risen victoriously
If you care this much, how much more does He care?
If my pain hurts you this much, how much more does it hurt Him?
If you want to hear what’s wrong, how much more does He want to hear what’s wrong?
If you want me to be fine, how much more does He want me to be fine?
If you refuse to leave while i’m hurting, how long will He refuse to leave?
“No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so i will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.” - Joshua 1:5
pet peeve: miss behaved children and animals.

Above all else, guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That’s a fact,
It’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.
and suddenly my heart starts racing a million miles an hour.
how did you find me??
It hurts so much to read all the blogs about how girls think they aren’t pretty enough, aren’t skinny enough, aren’t loved because they still have their virginity.. I want to cry. To tell them they’re wrong.
We let the littlest things take hold of us and soon they grow and consume our lives. We’re left a wreck. Broken. Desperate.
They tell us we’re just insecure emotional teenager going through adolescence. It’s not that simple. This time in our lives doesn’t just blow over. It can change everything. Each little thing we start to believe and start to act on. These little lies can ruin a life. You need to know the truth.
YOU are beautiful. YOU were created just as you are and YOU are perfect.
I can’t even start on weight.. It doesn’t matter. Yes, you need to take care of yourself but don’t try to be as skinny as the next girl. You’ll never be satisfied. You’re body is perfect. Just as it is.
And sex. If a guy knows what’s right and loves you, I believe he’ll wait for you and your virginity. Sex is a gift and connection that was designed for marriage. Protect you’re virginity and save it for that one person.
Song of Soloman 4:7 ~ “…You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.”
the best adventure is going on a bike ride and getting lost in a neighborhood you didn’t know existed.
fact: for some special event or “big day” i want to receive a globe. a really really cool globe. i think they’re beautiful. they spark my imagination and curiosity. possessing a globe would be a daily inspiration and motivator. a drive to achieve my goal - to adventure the world.
travels have not been a big part of my family’s agenda. “vacation” generally means finding something to accomplish at home. if i get really adventurous i might walk around random neighborhoods for hours.
the one family vacation that we’ve had was after my dad died. i was about two years old. we went to disneyland. that’s the farthest i’ve ever been (i live in colorado). sure enough, i’ve pretty much been all over colorado. i’ve been to new mexico a few times, utah, and wyoming. my idea of adventure surely exceeds the extent of those trips.
maybe i’m just picky or ungrateful. or maybe i just have high expectations and aspirations. i really want to travel.
ideally traveling gives me a sense of freedom that can’t be obtained from anything else. no ties, no permanent responsibilities, no routine. the idea of just going. simply utterly appealing. to discover and learn. to experience different cultures.
without an outline, tour guide, day to day hour by hour schedule… not the tourist side of the location. i want to feel the people. help the people. experience their lives as they are. not masked over. raw. organic.
this is my dream.
