The Silver Lining

"Every cloud has a silver lining."
I have always tried to find the "silver lining," in my everyday life. Some days are definitely harder than others. But that's a part of life right? I think using optimism in your everyday life can really make a difference though. For example, it's a lot healthier to forgive others and move on. Holding grudges can be a really unhealthy act that can only do you harm. I think that through life you'll always have the good with the bad. A good friend of me told me at a bad time in my life that, "with every negative comes the positives." I really find that statement to be true. You can always turn something around, it honestly doesn't matter the situation. My best friend really is such an amazing person. She has helped me through so much. Even now we are hanging out and watching movies together... and well, today was a really bad day for me; you know one of those days where every little thing goes wrong, that's how it's been. But the moment she walked through my sliding door I felt at ease. Like a great weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Someone who has been there for me through the good and the bad, she truly is amazing. In life I think we need to find our silver lining -- wherever or whatever that might be. That's what helps you keep pushing on when times get rough. There is always that light at the end of the tunnel, no matter what situation finds us. I'm thankful that I have found my silver lining in life -- my family & my friends. Thank you, this post is to you.
Shout out: I love you Mar-bear. Thanks for being my "silver lining." You are amazing and incredible and you lighten my darkest of days. I don't know what I would do without you. I'm glad I'll never have to find out. I'm excited for our future, because we'll always have each other to share it with. Thanks for being the best friend a girl could ask for. xo.

<--- This beautiful sight would be none other than Sundance Utah. Simply breathtaking. Robert Redford is an amazing actor and director. I love his movie "A River Runs Through it," which is filmed in Montana. And of course his role in, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." Some more of my favorites are: "The Horse Whisperer, The Legend of Bagger Vance," and so many more. He's amazing, simply amazing. I have always loved his films... they are so peaceful and take you on a soothing ride. You don't get that a lot in films, and I'm grateful to receive those feelings from his movies. He owns Sundance and founded the Sundance Film Festival that takes place every year in Park City Utah. Sundance is right by Timpanogos Cave also! I stayed up here this weekend, and even though I am from Utah.. and have lived here practically my entire existance, I have yet to go to Sundance until now. During Fall, it's so amazing to see all the beautiful leaves, especially on the amazing mountains Utah has! It's really the main reason I love Utah so much, that and Park City of course. It will always remind me of being a little girl and my dad taking me up there for the weekends. Deer Valley is also beautiful. If you aren't from Utah and want to take a little visit, I definitely recommend these places! And if you like skiing, well then the rumors are true; the best mountains to take a ride on are here in the Beehive state!

PS: I changed my layout because it reminds me of the colors of Autumn! Man oh man do I love Fall :)

Vampire Diaries!!

What can I say about this show............... I'M OBSESSED!! It's a problem really :)
Yes, I'm obsessed with anything that has to do with Vampires..

For example:

-Buffy the Vampire Slayer
-Interview With a Vampire
-Twilight Series
-Black Dagger Brotherhood

I know there are more that I can't think of. But seriously.. OBSESSED with this show && the best book series has got to be the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I just love how both show Vampires. They definitely get the sex appeal if you catch my drift. ;)

Damon. Enough said.

Anyways if you haven't watched this tv show.. watch it!!! It's in it's second season. It's very much worth it.

Why do people have to suffer?
I look all around me and lately everyone is in pain.
What if you were the cause to one person's pain?
What if you could only sit there and watch someone you love die slowly?
What if you could only hold your best friend's hand when the pain takes her breath away?
What if you were the one drowning?
This has been my life lately.
I'm not sure how you can take the suffering away.
I know people say wake up and move forward.
But sometimes you hit a wall.. and you can't move anywhere anymore.
I feel stuck.
I just want to reach the surface and be able to breath fully once again.
I want to wake up and feel truly happy about the day.
I want to feel thankful for my blessings again.
I want to hear my mother laugh once more.
I want to know that my best friend and her family are going to be okay.
I want a friend to be who she was with me and come back to a friendship that meant the world.
I want a father's pain to go away.. one way or another. And set him free.
I want.. yes, I just want.
Suffering please go away.
God you've given me more than I can handle.
I am strong.
I am brave.
I am independent.
I am compassionate.
But even I have my limits.
And now I'm there.
I'm already there.
Have been there for a long long time.
Suffering please go away.

Make New Friends -- But Keep The Old Ones

Sometimes all you need is a good night with old friends! It's funny how sometimes life catches up with you and you don't hang out as much with people you used to. But then when you do hang out with them.. it's as if nothing has changed at all.

My friends seriously make me laugh so hard that I'm almost crying! They're the type of friends who have your back no matter what the situation is.

I'm truly blessed to have the life I do, and to have the friends I have in it.

So here's to you guys -- thanks for all the smiles.

Open Your Eyes.

When I heard about that boy who committed suicide because of people posting a personal video of him, I was appalled. What is going on in people's mind? Maybe I was just brought up differently, but I have never understand how other's can treat people so horribly. How do they get joy from hurting someone?

Ellen made this awareness message, and I get choked up watching it. It's so true what she says...

I just hope something changes and fast. Because I have loved ones who are going through with finding out who they are, and I would never want them to suffer in these kind of ways. No one should. Everyone should live their life in peace and get opportunities just like everyone else. Maybe just by Ellen's video people will start to open their eyes.

I know everyone has their own beliefs and what they think is right/wrong, but you need to learn how to be accepting of others. I never understood why if someone believed in one thing, why another feels the need to attack it from all corners. NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO BELIEVE THAT TOO! Let people choose their own rights in peace. It just makes me so mad, and especially watching that video. Ellen was right.. it is a crisis. And something needs to change. NOW. My heart goes to all those who have felt bullied, or that they couldn't be who they were meant to be because they feared what other's would think.

Be who you are... who you were meant to be.

RIP: For all the lives lost too short.
