Wasn't Written in the Stars

Sometimes life changes, it can change in a blink of an eye. It can change however slowly or in a moment. That unexpected moment. And you open your eyes. You can either be brave and take charge of the honesty, or you can pretend it'll all work out even though you know it wasn't meant to. Then you wait long enough that someone else takes charge. The blow is still hard and knocks you off your feet, but you can breathe for the first time in months. The loss still hurts daily but you have to believe that something else was was written for you in the stars. What is truly meant to be. What will happen. What I hope will happen.

I'm going open my eyes from now on. I'm going to find happiness by myself. No more pretending.

Perception Change

"Things are not nearly as bad as you think they are, Taurus. But then again, they say that perception is reality. So even though your imagination has made your situation seem far worse than it is, it is still as bad as you think it is because that's your perception. So it also stands to reason that you could turn that around simply by perceiving that things are excellent. If you start believing that everything is as it should be, and that it's getting better and better and better, it will."

This is my horoscope today and I must say it opened up my eyes....

I've been extremely negative and unhappy with certain areas of my life lately. But when I stop and think about it, are things really as bad as I'm making them out to be? If I could change the way I think, I think my view on the negatives would shift to positives.

I need to try this.

My goal is to wake up happy and be thankful for what I have. Be happy through the day. Smile. Show love. Feel good. Maybe then my perception will change for the better.

World's Worst Blogger

WOW. I have truly become the World's Worst Blogger! YIKES.

I'm going to be honest though. I really thought good and hard about getting rid of this blog because I honestly just cannot keep up with it as well as I used to. Look, I haven't posted since November! That's horrible. I just feel like life takes over sometimes and you can't always do your guilty little pleasures...like blogging.

But after thinking so hard, I realized I cannot get rid of this blog. Even if I don't post again for another 6 months, this blog is about me. Who I am. What I do. I just can't. Years later, it will be so interesting to read and that's why I don't want to get rid of it.

So for now all I can say is HELLO and I'll do my best to keep up with it. I truly will.

I am going to really start writing more on my Writing Blog. So if you are interested in writing or reading, please go follow me on The Written Word!

If you really want to see what's been going on with me...follow my Instagram

Here are a few as of lately!
Cookies by Design MY FAVORITE oh and I have bangs now :) 
Went to the Utah Montessori Conference!! AMAZING. So proud to be a Montessori teacher. 
This is the best spread ever...seriously though. 
Natural Museum in Utah is amazing!
My friend Lexi's Monkey Bread is to DIE for!

Had a wonderful 2nd Valentine's with my boy Will. We went to Ruth's Chris an amazing steakhouse. I'm a lucky girl. Been dating now for 1 year and 2 months (wow where does the time go?).
Picture from NYE :) Such a fun night!
That's only some of the many things that have been going on in my life. It's a lot I know. I've been so busy with the Master's Program and become a licensed Montessori Teacher! But luckily I've found time to write as well. Write where is counts. I officially hit 55,671 words on my novel. That's big. The first draft is almost done. So regardless if it's ever published...I did it. And that's huge for me. But like I said, go look about that on my writing blog!

I hope you're all doing well. I'll write when I can - deal? Don't give up on me just yet!
