Days Like This...

Days like today make me so thankful for everything that I have! There's no particular reason for this happening, but as I was sitting here trying to find something to do, I started listening to some music on You Tube. Two particular songs got me thinking: Hilary Duff's "Someone's Watching Over Me" and Group 1 Crew's "Forgive Me". They are both very amazing songs, and no matter what mood I'm in, they always make me take a deep breath and think about the things I've done and been through.

I'm very content and happy with who I am. I live my life for myself and do the things that make me happy. I've been through my share of hardships and failure in my life, but it's only made me stronger, and it helps me to appreciate the things that I do have!

It's been happening for a while now, but my faith in God has been growing stronger and stronger! I feel a very close connection with Him and hope it only continues to get stronger and healthier. If it weren't for Him, I wouldn't be here today. Whatever comes my way, I know I can handle it. He never makes me face something I can't handle.

I'm also very proud of myself for sticking up for my morals and not giving in to the things I knew weren't right for me. There comes a time in a person's life where you know you just have to stick up for yourself and make your own dreams come true, which is what I'm trying to do! I've never been a big "party" fan or wanted to live the stereotypical "college life". I don't need that to fulfill me or to make me happy. So many people have tried to tell me otherwise, but I know them to be wrong. I have no regrets!

I'm also extremely excited to finally be feeling like myself again! I have many people in my life who are always there for me to turn to if I need them for any reason, and for them, I am truly thankful! I finally feel truly happy with the way things are going. Whatever happens, happens...but I'm ready for the ride of my life!!

**On a side note, today's quote is AWESOME!
"I would rather MAKE my name than inherit it..."
Just thought I'd throw that out there :).**

You sound like you're seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm so proud of you. It really sounds like you are starting to be much happier. YAY! I have felt the same way lately. We are so lucky! Life is good. You just have to take it one day at a time. Breathe. And don't sweat the small stuff! ;)
