"Today you are you! that is truer than true! there is no one alive who is you-er than you! shout loud, I am lucky to be what I am! Thank goodness i'm not just a clam or a ham or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam! I am what I am!"
"I AM I! ME! I am I! And I may not know why but I know that I like it. Three cheers! I AM I!"
- Dear Old Dr. Seuss
I am I and I'm grateful for that. I like skateboards and singing and acrobats. Sitting under the stars makes my head feel clear and I'm the kind of girl that likes nature to be near. I find that I love broccoli, I'm one of few who like fruitcake. I miss the ocean like crazy, I'd rhyme more... but I'm lazy.
I felt like after I quoted Dr. Seuss I had to keep rhyming. Even now, typing this feels so wrong.
I probably have a cursing problem... the other day I resolved to stop swearing. There is, after all, a plethora of creative words to express my feelings out there (see what I did there). I am fairly confident that God read my thoughts and promptly decided to give me a small test. I walked past our side table, knocked over our lamp, and it shattered. I love that lamp... my resolve dissolved. **Don't worry Mom I jumped back on the "clean language" wagon.
I have spent the last two days listening to my church's, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, General Conference. I hope that everyone who had the chance to watch or listen feels uplifted!
Something that I have been thinking a lot about lately is how looking back, my biggest regrets are times when I wasn't as kind or thoughtful as I could have been. AND what do you know, one of the themes of conference was kindness... I know that I have been a little sassy of late, and I have made so many justifications for it. So, I am now super charged with kindness. Bring it on challenging individuals in my life who test my patience, I will be kind to you!
Check out conference if you haven't and don't forget to make the world a better place today!
