Choices... choices...

Well, One thing happened I couldn't really control, but now I have a million choices laid in front of me...Now what to do?

I can continue here at school, get my BA in... something and then go start a career. Or I can become a traveling bum and live off garbage cans...Or I could move home and find a job and just pay off all my debts. AHH so much to think about. But then again, Its really fun. I am at a pivotal time, I can take a step in any direction in shaping my future from right here.

I guess Every day I should view like this...the is called the present because it is a present... but for some reason I get sucked into the day to day thing, and become like a lemming. Doing what "The Man" (yes I brought "The Man" into it) wants and what society thinks is what I should do.

I am Me! I have another chance to Redefine Me! I'm so happy and grateful for this!

I have started to start to set goals, I guess a New "Bucket" list.

Some things I want to do right now:

-Have my art in a Gallery

-Climb to the highest point of the Mountain next to Cedar City

-Hike Angels Landing

-Pass my Classes

Some long term goals...well I'm still thinking about that :D

I guess right now my long term goals will probably orient around this quote for the movie "The Bucket List"

“You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not. ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ 'Has your life brought joy to others?’

I think I will Volunteer for the Service club here at school. I know if I will forget myself and serve other I will be more happy. I guess like the scripture.. "whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it" Matthew 16:25

So to sum up, I need to find joy and give joy to others. Life is too short to suffer in silence and not forgiving others. Life is supposed to be happy, bold, and Not forgettable! So Forward I go, With my head held high and I will take on the world one step at a time.

Though my hands seem small and insignificant, my hands are strong. I will provide for my future and for the future of those around me. They will give all they can, tire under the work, crack, maybe bleed. But they are my hands, my tools. I will make them be what they may.

I really like your scripture reference. I need to serve others more, I don't do it as often as Phil does and he does seem a little more happy than I am usuallly (part of my problem is being a girl I think. lol) but yeah nice thoughts. You can do it LaraLee! :)
