Who ever said life was fair?

"As I’ve matured, I’ve come to realize that God is indeed fair, but fair does not mean equal." - Dave Ramsey.
How many times have you heard someone whine about life being so unfair? I've heard it billions of times. I think this quote replies to the whining perfectly! Fair is definitely not the same thing as equal. Have you ever heard 2+2 Fair 4? Nope! They are totally different things and so it's quite impossible to compare the two. 
It's my goal in life to quit the complaining about how my life is so unfair. Instead, I want to exude graitude and be thankful for what I do have. I want to work hard and live a happy life. Dwelling on lifes hardships wont get me anywhere. I want to be moving forward, not taking steps backwards. I can be positive, and I will keep striving to be the best me I can be.

Out With The Old... And In With The New (Year)

2013 has treated me well, but I am so excited to start this new year. New years bring a do-over that is so refreshing. It is where you restart and do your best to make yourself better. Everyone always complains that resolutions are dumb, but I know that deep down inside everyone has their own listed in their head. Here are my New Years Resolutions:

  • Make life worthwhile
  • Collect more quotes
  • Get skinny
  • Develop a new skill
  • Be more kind
  • Read my scriptures daily
  • Blog more
  • Be more understanding
  • Get away from technology once in a while
  • Journal 
  • Listen
  • Study harder
  • Save money
  • Love
  • Smile
  • Sing
  • Be a better friend
  • Work harder
  • Take in the nature
  • Laugh a lot
  • Stay off soda
  • Forgive & Forget
  • Grow my hair out long
  • Do tons of crafts
  • Be more organized
  • Let life take it's course sometimes
  • Love the highs and learn from the lows
  • Make some new friends

Un(well not even)Invited

It's upsetting that someone I used to consider my closest friend, is acting like this. We've had our ups and downs (a lot of downs as of late), but I still think I'm your friend and you're still mine. It's sad to think that you're being outright rude to get back at me. I never did anything. I just didn't want to be treated like garbage so I told you how I felt. I thought we were fine. We still hangout a lot and I even invited you hot tubbing a couple weekends ago. It's very immature of you to make it obvious that you aren't inviting me to your party. I don't care if I'm invited or not it's just a party that I probably won't remember in a year. BUT when you outright hand the invitations out while I stand right there talking to you... that stings. For a minute I wanted to get back at you. Then I realized it's definitely not worth it. I'm not 5 and I am willing to stand up and be the better person. "Treat people the way you want to ne treated". I would think you would have caught on to that one by know, considering the many times you've complained about people not liking you.
I'm sorry for whatever I did for you to need to "get back at me". Have a fun party!
