Another week..

Beginning of another week, wondering what's in store for me..
Will it be good or bad?
Will I see success or failure?
Will I be happy or sad?
Am I gonna be driven or resigned?
And many more questions that I often ask myself at the start of each week, month or year. And the only one who can answer those questions correctly every time is...

(duh) ME!

A fact that I often forget.

New complications

So for those who don't know yet, I quit my job that I had just started the other week for a couple different reasons. It was a sales job at Vector Marketing and they do all their sales through recommendations so basically you start with people that you know. Of course, being from a place other than Utah and having only been here for two weeks limited my resources greatly. It stunk cause if done right, a lot of money could be made in that field. But it was just the wrong circumstances at the wrong time. So I'm back to square one.. keep your fingers crossed that something will come up soon!

On a happier note, I've rediscovered writing! I was looking into writing jobs, seeing if there might be anything that I would actually enjoy doing, and stumbled across a site called the Young Writers Society. It's a site that lets younger writers post their work and be critiqued by other young writers who are also posting their stuff. It's awesome! I've already posted a story I wrote and got some feedback and its got me really excited to start writing again! For anyone who might be interested in the site, here's a link to it:

For my Mother

Mother dearest, where are the words to describe
How loving you have been my whole life through
This day of celebrating kind mothers just as you
Your long-suffering towards me in childhood
And grace through situations right and wrong
Made our house, not only a house, but home
Your stalwart spirit taught me to love God
To see the beauty in everything and everyone
And to seek the eternal will, instead of my own

Oh how grateful I am to call you Mother dearest
Not only for now, but through forever more
You’ve given me everything that I am and will be
I love you Mom and will continue to through eternity

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day Mom and know that I love you and am so grateful to Heavenly Father for giving me to you!

A Testament

I want to share with everyone who reads this blog, a couple testimonies of my favorite book of all time, one of those testimonies being my own. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I've read it many times, I've asked for myself to know that its true and I have found that answer through the whisperings of the Spirit. It's hard to convey to you in words my feelings for this amazing book but I hope you can get a sense. It's a book that lifts me up whatever the situation, and always has the answers that I need. There is a Youtube video of one of the Apostles of Jesus Christ, Elder Jeffery R. Holland, during one of our worldwide church conferences; and in it, he is bearing sincere, fervent and powerful testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I encourage all to watch it, he says it more clearly and powerfully than I ever could:
