Within us is a a complex world of desires, thoughts, passions, dreams, wishes and hopes, and all of those things each try to find a way into our lives. Making us who we are, and who we are going to become. Everyday, we weave through these things, trying to make sense of them all. Trying to find a place for each of them to be brought to life. Not wanting anything to be forgotten or left unopened.
Everyday I wake up with ideals. With these desires and hopes. And everyday, I find myself having to choose one thing over another. In an ideal world, Every day would be a new opportunity to explore every last particle of what makes me, me. I could create and push the boundaries and limits of life. I could bring to life my inner most secret desires, and feel as though I have conquered everything that tried to tell me no.
But yet, life often times has its own ideas, its own ways of testing me. Its own way of trying and challenging me. Slowly molding me into a person that I could have never become without all of those challenges and trials. And yet, the whole time I have been finding my way through, it has been my desires and passions, my hopes and dreams that have given me my strength and direction. The desires to stand for what is true, and to become some one that I could have only dreamed of becoming.
Its the times in life when things are the hardest, that we search to find the truth, and when we find that truth, that pure light in the midst of haze, that we have the tools to help us become who we have always wanted to be.
We find ourselves strengthened and empowered. With even greater desires, thoughts, passions, dreams, wishes and hopes.

"...Memories Pressed Between the Pages"

Okay, so I got this from one of my sweetest friends...; )

Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.

And remember I'll respond if you do!


Okay, so today I am faced with the decision. I can either drown in my life and become a victim of it, or I can FIGHT! Today I choose to fight! We all face trials in our life's that make us feel as if our existence is being smashed away by every little thing that continues to be added, but it is our choices that decide the results. So in an effort to engage in life, instead of drown in it, I am writing this post. It always amazes me how when I feel as if my life has bitten off more then it can chew, my Heavenly Father blesses me, and steps in and increases my abilities. Wow, it is so amazing to see how much my Heavenly Father loves me, and how much he does for ME! Yes even me, little ol' me!
Do you ever face a situation in life where you feel like your failing, but not just with a simple black F, but with a flaming F- , then you finally realize, after a week , okay maybe even a month, that you haven't even knelt down to pray since who knows when? So you kneel down feeling so guilty for being so prideful, because you tried to take on the world, with only the power of your measly self, And You Pray. You simply pray to your Father in Heaven. Remembering that all this time, He has been waiting for you, and wishing that you would let him in to help, and that he has sent his son to carry you, and all you have to do is say "help",
and our Savior Jesus Christ will pick you up, and give you the strength to continue to breath, and to continue to love! He will show you how to take control, and will even work miracles on your behalf.

I, am not exempt from this, and I decided to share this experience, and my thoughts and feelings, so that all those around me who might be experiencing the same thing, will know that they are not alone, and they are as normal and imperfect as the rest of us.
I hope you all have a great night, and take some time to enjoy life.
