just an update

Well, I've been asked recently by a lot of people how my life is going and I thought i should give an update. Well first off my divorce is finalized! it seems like its been forever to get things done and ready. It went through Oct 18th so its a good thing.
School is going splendid. I love my classes and this major is really good for me, I'm a Communication major with an emphasis in advertising. Its a great fit for me and i'm excited to move on from college with it.

life is just an adventure... i was so sad when everything had started to happen but honestly its been a blessing in my life. I dont wish this experience on anyone else but the lord really knows whats best for all of us. I have learned so much about myself and life, Its been a blessing in disguise to learn everything i have. I'm so excited for the next phase in my lie and the adventures i will be partaking in :D

Well, Here is my update. Its been a while i know... but here we go.
So I've been busy with school and trying to rediscover myself.

Some things i've been keeping in mind...
I am a Daniels girl! What does this mean? Well The Daniels' Culture is to

A. Do the right thing
B. Be strong
C. Laugh
D. Cherish the good things in life
E. Love

So I know that my family is pretty amazing. I have great examples to follow and I'm grateful
The Lord decided i should be apart of this family. I have an Amazing Father who has always worked so hard to provide for his family, He always is willing to laugh, and Is a great person to everyone.
My mother is a hard worker, She is an amazing example of service, she gives of herself and time to help her children and others all around her. She Also has a great sense of humor and she is never to proud to be silly :D

My sisters are all wonderful examples. They take life by the horns and Just keep on keepin on. I'm so grateful to have them all. Thank you God! My cup runeth over.
well here is a picture with my wide angle lens. LOVE IT!!!!

Hello Again

Well, I have a moment between classes to update. I've been busy and trying to find balance to do everything and try and start my photography going. I'm having two shoots this next week and I'm super excited for that. I cant wait till I have like 5 shoots a week, then eventually get up to maybe more than that a day! I can dream. hahaha

Well Classes are going well. I'm having a hard time with my Communication research class. My teacher is slightly confusing and gets on tangents all the time. Then another class i have is media law. So many confusing court cases i have to remember. Oh well, Its working out, I'm just ready for this semester to be done with. ha

I Love my Major though! I'm so excited to have found something I am this happy to do. I think it is a good thing to fall back on if photography doesn't take off like I'm dreaming it will. I also researched agencies to work with, They have several in Utah! who would have thunk?! There are 4 companies in Cedar, several in Salt lake and there are 2 in PRICE!!! I'd love to move there close to my parents! If it works out that would be awesome!

Well other than that, I'm in institute. Love it, and my singles ward isn't that bad. Still a ton of emphasis on dating and such, but hey they like to promote it, i wont put it down. Its been a blessing to have in my life, I've realized as I go my weeks seem to be getting better and better. It really helps to have an eternal perspective of life instead of our every day worries.

I'm in search of a night job. maybe not one that is sooooo late, since i have to wake up early but maybe 20 hours or 25 a week i could quit my other jobs and be fine. Well, time to get to my other class. Adios :D

confusion and questions

Through my whole ordeal, I keep hearing in my head "The Pure Love of Christ" What does this mean? I tried to look on things as how i believe christ would. Christ has a continual love for all. He said forgiving others is our duty, judging is his.

We are all given times of trials and we are to be judged on how we perform during these desperate times. I love my friends and family, they try and help all they can but i just have not received any answer that seems to fit me perfectly. Does this mean that I just am stubborn or does that mean What i have been advised has not been correct?

Luke 17:32 "Remember Lot's Wife"

Lots wife looked back as she was fleeing and was turned into a pillar of salt. this lesson may show that we should trust in god and not yearn for things in the past. To move on, take the lessons of the past and trust in the lord.

I do trust in the lord. I know how i was living before wasn't the best of circumstances. The thing is I Do not Blame Just Him him as in ex husband. I made mistakes, I did stupid things, I acted as a child and I've come to see how Irresponsible i was of things I've done in the past.

I guess what I'm saying is that A lot of people advise me to Forget him, and to "move on" as though he is my worst mistake. That he is not a good man. but I will stand up now and say HE is a good Man. He just made Stupid Decisions. We both did.

The way we were living we were wasting our lives. We had no goals, we had no hope. We were just living.... He cheated on me, but honestly, It crossed my mind as well. I wasn't happy in the way i was living and i associated it with being married. but It was the transition from being a child to an adult, and also not having the gospel in my home. I'm still having a very hard time grasping what i need to do. but I think Now is the time to make mistakes and to learn who we are.

So, No i do not yearn for that time again. I just wish things ended better. I learned a lot from those 2 years. And even now I have struggles. I'm coming up from the despair i was in but I really wish that people will forgive Him. I have. I just really hope others will understand how i did better. Its really hard to be a judge of someone when I am not that person. I guess this is where it says, judge not lest ye be judged.

I am not going to speak poorly of him. He is a part of my life. I just like i said, wish thing ended differently.

Sorry about this rant, I just feel so.. i dont know. How closed minded people get on certain things makes me feel like an idiot. I loved him I married him and I chose him. And people saying things like Move on and forget it... its not easy. and It makes me feel stupid that people can easily write it off... like it never really happened or mattered... becasue it did.

"Let people repent. Let people grow. Believe that people can change and improve. Is that faith? Yes! Is that hope? Yes! Is it charity? Yes! Above all, it is charity, the pure love of Christ. If something is buried in the past, leave it buried. Don’t keep going back with your little sand pail and beach shovel to dig it up, wave it around, and then throw it at someone, saying, “Hey! Do you remember this?” Splat!

Well, guess what? That is probably going to result in some ugly morsel being dug up out of your landfill with the reply, “Yeah, I remember it. Do you remember this?” Splat."

Remember Lot's Wife
Holland, Jeffrey R

My friend gave me this speech to listen to. and it mentions the pure love of christ. and it gave me hope that I'm not crazy.

"Such dwelling on past lives, including past mistakes, is just not right! It is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is worse than Miniver Cheevy, and in some ways worse than Lot’s wife, because at least there he and she were only destroying themselves. In these cases of marriage and family and wards and apartments and neighborhoods, we can end up destroying so many, many others"

So just in closing, Yes people have made mistakes, but I just believe dwelling on past mistakes does nothing but harm ourselves.
I'm not saying I'm back with Him, Just please be more understanding on my view point on the whole matter.

Sorry for the long rant but I really needed to express myself

here is the link to that talk:

the Ultimate Check list

okay picture thing I think is only going to be a facebook thing. lol so I'm done for now unless i get a really cool one picked out.

Well my bishop advised me to write about why my marriage did not work out so I may remember it and be able to share it with my future children (if that means he can tell i'll get remarried again I'm all for it!) lol

Okay so some things that didnt work out:

Not completely honest. Always trying to find loop holes
The time on games, NO Bueno
different religious backgrounds
not an equal amount of shared responsibilities
and finally: not the best relationship with the in-laws

okay then a dear brother-in-law told me to write down a check list of things i want in a future man based on what i've learned. so here we go!

Same religious needs
mature but with a sense of humor
dislikes spending hours on games
i feel safe while he is driving
make me laugh
likes adventures
Rarely angry

okay that is a small list and i know i have more. but I just wanted to share that i know my future is in my hands now and That I plan on not wasting it! I just hope the next step in my life doesnt seem so far away and also that i may accept where i am and enjoy it.
