There is no one alive that is youer than you

"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.

But anyways,

 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!
