life is beautiful

this week... our little twitter family, which includes:
tim, wilson , whitley, addyy, hannah and me.
decided that we are going to work on letting go of the past.
why do we hold on to bad memories?
why cant we forgive the people that have done us wrong?
why cant we forgive ourselves for the mistakes we have made?
its our faults that make us who we are, we are constantly learning..
we fall scrape our knees, sit ahwile on the ground then get back up and start playing again.
cause time never stops, the game will keep going, so we have to do our best to keep up, to get back up when we fall down. its good to fall, cause its when your on the ground that you see the beauty, when you see the bright blue sky and realize you are just a small part of a big picture.
sometimes we get so caught up in our daily life, that we forget to be grateful for all the things we have. so sometimes god will take away the stuff he doesnt think you are thankful for, so you realize how much they actually mean to you.
"so i guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. and maybe we will never know most of them. but even if we dont have the power to choose where we come from,we can still choose where we go from there."
let go of the past and prepare for the future..

i encourage everyone reading this, to take time this week to forgive someone you havent been able to forgive, even if that person is yourself. try and find 5 things that make you smile each day and write them down before you go to bed. so when you have those days when you cant find your smile, you can go back and look at your lists of things that made you smile and your smile will be found. (:

five things that made me smile today:
1. listening to the new weepies album.
2. cleaning my room, finding old notes people have written me.
3. dancing in the pouring rain.
4. giving addy a pep talk she really needed.
5. talking to my brother and bestfriend joel.


  1. Five things that made me smile today:
    1. I CAN dance alone... And that's okay!
    2. I am me. I can go anywhere, do anything, and be anyone.
    3. I am an incredibly talented actress. Which people know, but I'm even better than they know! You bet I did that Shakespeare monolouge and it was AMAZING!
