I say take the risk....you wont regret trying, even if you do fall flat on your face...
most regret comes from simply not trying. even if everyone thinks you are crazy..does it really matter? when you are old and grey looking back...it wont matter what they thought of you. It will matter that you either tried, or you didnt.


Setting goals, working hard, playing hard, loving hard.

Isnt that what life is all about? 
Trusting God, believing in yourself, knowing who you are, knowing that God defines you..not people....realizing that being free is something you find in yourself. Freedom to be who you are. Letting go of the fear that love might leave..letting go of all of it. 
The people in your life right now are here. They may not stay and that's ok. But be in the moment with them...you never know when someone will change their mind, stop loving you......you just dont know...and that is ok. Knowing who you are and being confident that no matter who stays or who leaves You are You....and you matter...
If someone leaves, they weren't meant for your whole journey. Let go of the bitterness....
find out who is meant for the whole journey and fight for them...listen to your heart. You will know.
You are smarter than you think:)
I have loved and loathed this year. I hated the pain, but I loved the truth it gave me. I loved finding me in the middle of it. I honestly wouldn't change a thing.

"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet and know as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same. -Og Mondino

We should do this everyday. Its hard, but not impossible. 

What a great way to live ...& to see the world...as well as each other.
Love is always the answer. Love never fails. Love wins.

Trusting God...
A year has changed my life.
I lost a man I had loved for years.
I chose to trust God, rely fully on Him.
Believing Him when He said to "Seek me first and All these things will be added to you"
...
God gave me Shawn....God renewed my heart....He healed my wounds. They are my battle scars...the pain brought me to my knees, almost killed me...
God carried me, lifted me up. He never left me.
When I wept & slept on my bible, He was there...healing me.
I am the happiest I have been in a long time. I am in love.
My kids are in love with him too. Its all because of God......He WILL give you the desires of your heart...IF you seek Him first. Trust Him....He is constant...He is the One thing that you can rely on....
I know that I need Him to breathe....for peace that overwhelms me...once you truly taste God...its hard to walk away.

"Your love never fails, it never gives up....it never runs out on me...
Higher than the mountains that I face, stronger than the power of the grave...
constant in the trial and the change...this one thing remains...
and I never have to be afraid.
Your love never fails, it never gives up..it never runs out on me"

i loove this song! one thing remains.. this one thing you can rely on...this one thing that is constant. That one thing is God...and His undeniable, relentless, overwhelming love
