This post is going to be completely random.
This is one of my best friends. Yes, we actually tried to take a normal cute smiley picture... but we honestly look better in this one. I'm being 100% serious.
-My hair looks uber light.
The sky this morning was crazy. First there was the red moon. Then when the sunrise came the colors and light burst through like nobody's business. These pictures don't do it justice.. but I got what I could.
Check out these bruises on the back of my calf. Pretty weird place to get bruises if you ask me.
Sometimes I pretend I'm cute. We all know I'm really not though. But here's a decent attempt.
The daisies are in full bloom. I love them.
Orchids are pretty
I like rice crispies, that my hair is getting long (I know I've said that recently), and doing awkward poses.
Oh here's another awkward thing in my life.
Tomorrow is the 4th. And I'm going to awkwardly be in the Provo parade.
Because I took third in a speech contest back in April.
I might make myself puke tomorrow morning just so I can say I'm sick and then won't have to go.
I just know it'll be awkward. The lady wants us to quote some of our speech through a mic while on the float during the parade.
I just know I'm going to get tomatoes thrown at me.
And there will be people I know. And they'll look at me weird. Not just the "that was an awkward moment weird" but almost to the point of "she's so awkward she probably has a hump on her back and smells funny" weird.
It'll be great.
Another reason to be a hermit.
Thanks for reading this post. Let me just say it's been a long day.
But just one more thing.
You're amazing. No matter what anyone else says.
Rely on your family, your best friends, and most importantly the Savior.
Put your trust in him.
I know I'm not good at this, but put your future in his hands. He will shape it far better then you'll be able to.
"Life is fragile, handle with prayer."
"Don't be afraid to trust an unknown future to an all knowing God."
Yesterday I was bummed out, but then this other quote came to mind.
"When you feel you're drowning in life, don't worry your lifeguard walks on water."
It just makes me think, because well I started lifeguarding this summer.. and I haven't had to be all heroic yet and jump in, but sometimes it scares me because I get to thinking "What if I fall? Or if I can't get to someone in time?" And a ton of other what ifs, but that's when the training will kick in, and I just have to believe in myself.
With the Savior, he doesn't worry about that kind of stuff. The last step of him saving us is our choice to let him. Let him pick us up, dust us off, and set us back on our feet.
I'm only human, so I know that I'll get bummed again tomorrow like I did yesterday, and like I did today.
But I also know that when I reach out the Savior will be right there to pick me back up again. :)
