Sometimes all we need is love and support...

Just wanted to share an e-mail I received the other day from my one and only sister, M. I've been struggling the last few days with these crazy emotions I wrote about earlier due to my dramatic life change...she's my "go-to" girl in EVERY and ANY situation I need to vent or chat about. And I hope she knows I am always here for her too! But anyways, she always has the right thing to say and knows exactly how to snap me outta the moment and realize I have been truely blessed with some pretty amazing people and life!
Here it is:

"nobody can go back and start a new begining, but anyone can start today and make a new ending"

-you can make your own out come big sister, what has been done to you is not fair, but you can still gain what you want from life.

"good judgment comes from experiance. Experience come from bad judgment"

-so so so true, if we fall we have to get back up, the difference between successful and non-successful people is they got up the last time they fell down

"whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it"

- i know its hard to deal with what has been handed to you, but take it and make it yours, you can concur the world big sister.

i love you and remember you do not have to be sad, you can take those moments of frustration and sadness and make them moments that make you the better and in the long run happier person.

Kiss from me to you

This girl should be a motivational speaker! Seriously!

On another good note, I got an unexpected phone call from my love back in Germany! Q, aka cousin, called! Her and I worked together and just happen to get along outside of work! We had a little moment in there where we "feel out of touch" but did rekindle(its late and can't think of another word!) our friendship! And I am so glad she did...she has such a great outlook on life, always busy, on the go, and from my eyes, simply happy! :) She too always knows what to say, especially for being so young, as is M. Sometimes I think I should be the one giving them these lovely words of wisdom, however, I have been blessed with theirs! :)

So to the both of you, thanks for everything! And to all those others who've been there, supported for me, prayed for me, anything...thanks to you as well! :)

The pictures above are of M and I eating maccaroons from France and the other of Q and I during my last visit to Germany!

Girl with issues!

I am pretty sure this girl, me, has issues!! All sorts of issues, the good, the bad, and the ugly...and I am pretty sure we all have them, some of us just don't like to admit it (myself included). I think I recently came to face that fact that I am a BIG talker and a LITTLE walker, meaning I can talk the talk but sometimes I simply don't walk the walk.

That. Must. Change. Now. Period. Simply for the fact that I have to take care of my family and I just want to be the best I can be! Like they Army used to say, "Be all that you can be!" Corny. I know.

I am probably going to need all the help I can possibly get. Because at times it seems impossible to change who I am, I absolutely know it is POSSIBLE! Where do I begin? Well I guess I have already attempted, as in I began school, sorta got a job, and am potentially planning for the future. And just to clarify, I am not changing "who" I am..simply tweaking the "issues" I am not happy with!

I like to talk about doing things for a long time before I ever actually do it, things such as: running a race, making a quilt, redecorating my room, losing weight, quit drinking, staying happy, unpacking the rest of my boxes, joining the military...etc...You get the idea! I talk...a lot. And now it is time that I back that talk up with accomplishments and simply doing what I say.

Walking the walk...I'm making the quilt i've been talking about for months!! When I came back home, my mom told me to go through my old things from HS. Well, like most of us, we accumulate tshirts from sports, prom, activities, and events throughout the years! I have well over 25 that I just don't or won't why not put them into a tshirt quilt! I've already got them laid out in the way I want them to look...Step one already complete! Go me!

Random sidenote: so today, is day one without FACEBOOK! Who does that right? Well, I have noticed it simply consumed my much needed time to spend doing homework. The Newsfeed was just much more interesting than chemistry! So I am taking an FB break! Wish me luck!
