Random Thoghts

It's been a little while. Mainly because I haven't been in the best of spirits as of late. Just going through one of those times where nothing seems to go your way. No matter how hard I try. I thought about it yesterday and I had to laugh, I should be more upset about it, but I'm surprisingly optimistic about it all.

So... I'm going to focus on the random thoughts swirling through my head.

- Bryce Harper is making his MLB debut Saturday. I love a good MLB debut, but I'm especially excited for this kid. He's 19. So talented. I can't wait to watch his career unfold.

- My B-Day is next weekend. We're having a Cinco De Jillian party (yes, I do realize it doesn't make sense).

-I've been so tired as of late. I can never get enough sleep.

-Church. Most of you know what a big role my religion play in my life. I found this infographic that explains the lay ministry of the church. To understand the positions in the auxiliaries click here.

Also, a lovely entertaining video for you.

I just keep thinking that over and over again. I am 25. In a few weeks I will be 26.

Happiness feels like this, your heart upon your sleeve...

A Quote

...feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where we're holding back. they teach us to lean in when we feel we'd rather collapse and back away. they're like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we're stuck. this very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it's with us wherever we are.

--Pema Chodron

Sometimes I am hard on myself. I sense, what I would call, character flaws and feel shame for the feelings Pema describes here.  I should be a little bit easier on myself. I'm a rolling stone, and slowly but surely those rough edges will fade. The process is beautiful. I'm going to strive to be a bit more forgiving of my weaknesses, and see them as opportunities for growth.



I can't seem to get sleep. No matter how well I plan my evening. Something happens and I get to bed way later than planned.

When I don't get enough sleep I get cranky. It's bad when your boss notices.

I have a really bad week. A really bad week. And then best friends decide to make it better, because they're awesome, and they fly across the country to spend the weekend with you.

Gaining a little perspective helps you see the light at the end of the tunnel, but walking toward that light still sucks.

People hand out play-doh before meetings. When this happens, awesomeness ensues.

I wake up with a headache. I know that means it's going to be a long day.

I just want to stay in bed all morning.

I find new songs to love.
