I think the world has a really distorted view of beauty. I think people let themselves believe too easily that beauty can only be bought, whether through lotions or makeup. That's not real beauty.
Sometimes real beauty is no make up and messy hair. Sometimes real beauty is sweatpants and a hoodie. And sometimes real beauty is being strong enough to get up and face another day.

Don't blink.

Woah, it's already 2014. That's crazy.
I was thinking back a few weeks ago about how much actually happened and how much I actually did in 2013.
I went to Mexico in 2013. I graduated high school. I started college. I got my CNA and I got Med Tech Certified. I got a new job. I went the whole year without my brother. I said goodbye to the boy that I love so dearly, and now it has been over 6 months since he left. It was a great year. It definitely had its difficult moments, but looking back, it was beautiful.
2014 is going to be no different. A few things that are going to happen this year include: getting a niece in March and a nephew in April. My brother will come back around September or October. I will go this whole year without my Elder Reid. And that right there is just to name a few. Just the things that I know of.
What is great about a new year is that you don't know all that is going to happen. And if you did, wouldn't that be boring. I'm excited for this year and what it is going to bring. I'm excited for the opportunities that I am going to have.
A year ago I had a post all about new years resolutions. This year I have goals of course, but my main one is to live each day so that I can be an instrument in the hands of the Lord. I want to be able to help Him in any way I can.

Here we go 2014. :)
