Past month in a nutshell.....
WHERE ..........did January go?
It's almost over!
Well this month was a VERY productive month for me which makes me feel a little complete. I opted to wait a month to go to Washington so I could catch up after Christmas and I've been working my little bottom (ok it's really not that little but it's getting there) at work and at the gym.
I have been going no less than 4 days a week it has given me my own little high I guess....it just makes me happier and I've lost 4 lbs. YAY!
My Birthday....on the 9th of this month I turned 23
...I feel super old....
I know I'm actually not I just feel that way last year was no big deal but for some odd reason I thought that 23 would never come...it did and 24 is on the way. But that's ok :)
Blessings have been coming in swift proportions the past month which I'm so grateful for. It's been a sure roller coaster for the last two years but I feel like it's leveling. I went to church with my roommate this past Sunday and I don't know what it was but life just fell into place. I started writing a diary (not literally writing but it's a blog all to myself about my days so I remember how I'm feeling or something I thought was funny) after watching the Curious Case of Benjamin Button for the first time. Which has helped a TON to sort out how I've been feeling it's like therapy on it's own.
SO CHURCH....back on topic. Was the Sunday I needed!!! I have wanted to change and I know I've needed to I just haven't felt the yearn quite yet or the distinctive feeling I used to feel when I was 17 that I could do anything and be anything and just be happy! I usually despise relief society it just has never been my favorite thing but this lesson we had....
The teacher handed out articles ....
"Repent.....That I May Heal You" Elder Neil L. Anderson
I bit the back of my tongue to hold back tears of the grateful feeling I had toward Heavenly Father. Holy Cow that is exactly what I needed. I needed to know that no matter what I can be forgiven and the road isn't easy I just have to press forward and do what's right.
If you haven't read the article it's amazing and you should give it a go.
Such a new outlook..... I know I've said it before but I feel like I just had a meeting with Heavenly Father and he hugged me
With working out making me feel the way I have it's made me super happy....and the yearning to never miss a Sunday at church has also got this happy go lucky attitude in my head. I don't care that I'm a year older...I really just understand that with age comes growth of wisdom. I might not be caught up with everyone else my age and married with children or going to school but we all have our own paths and I'm so grateful for the road that has been lain before me.
So that's January so far this month I've rearranged my work schedule to beable to attend church this Sunday then the following Sunday I'll be in Rexburg for Michelle's Birthday. :)
***On a side note I've been saving for a digital camera so hopefully I'll start putting more pictures up :)
