To be honest...i dont have a lot of far off/looong term goals. I try to focus on the here and now. Live each day like it may possibly be my last. and having said that, i DO have a few short term goals.
for example, Sailor Man and i are doing a complete overhaul on our house. We are in the process of having our front lawn resodded. When that is done this week, we are going to tackle the rest of the landscaping. Replacing the rocks that line the house with some mulch, adding bushes, possibly a fountain, etc. We also purchased a patio set (which i fell in love with and got for 50% off woot woot!!!) and will be working on our backyard when we are finished with the front.
thats about all ive got for ya right now. Itty Bitty is awake and demanding my attention aka boob lol
day 17- someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
Hmm...ive been giving this some thought for a while. And i actually have a few people I would like to switch places with for a little bit. I would like to switch places with my parents, so they can each have a day with no stress or physical pain. I would like to switch with my husband, so we can walk a day in eachothers shoes and truly see what the other goes thru. I would like to switch with a random stranger, just bc it would be interesting and totally out of my comfort zone. and lastly...i would love to switch with each of my daughters. To be a little girl again, with no worries or fears or bills or stressors or anything...that would be amazing. bc lets be honest...they both live a pretty blessed (aka SPOILED) life lol!
(yes i am catching up on all that i missed recently. so shoot me.)
day 16- another picture of yourself
Not sure how old i am in this photo...im guessing maybe 8 or so. But this is me and my dad. Poor guy used to suffer thru me playing 'beauty parlor' all the time lol. He is having surgery tomorrow to fix his right bicep tendon and prayers or good thoughts sent his way would be greatly appreciated <3
There is just something so calming about giving it all to God. all my worries, frustrations, insecurities, anger, sadness, hurt, Everything. I give it all to Him and trust in Him to lead me where He wants me to go.
I mentioned on facebook my fave quote "I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much." that was circling around in my head non stop this week. Until today, when I realized that maybe it wasnt about Him trusting ME with the burden...but of me being able to fully let go and trust HIM with my burden.
And now I am at peace for the first time all week
"Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you"
Day 12- How you found out about blogger and why you have one?
This is actually my 2nd blogger. I had one back in 08 but a crazy neighbor stalked me and caused a crap ton of drama (stooped SUPER low and publicly posted insults about my then 1 year old Princess) so it was deleted.
and i now have this one bc i needed a place to come and write out all my thoughts and feelings during a hard and loooooong ass deployment. Loved it so much, im keeping it even tho he has been home for awhile lol
Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad?
If you have read my old posts, i told about new songs ive found or videos etc. I absolutely LOVE music and believe it can really change someones day.
Right now I am LOVING Taylor Swifts new Single "Mine". Yes, i am a T-Swift freak. absolutely love her and all her videos. In fact, i have every single song ever released by her on my ipod. lol. yes im a nerd.
My ultimate go to song is "Your Guardian Angel" by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. I have played it over and over and over again. i just love it <3
