I have been meaning to blog about this for quite sometime now.

They recently broke the ground for the Payson, Utah LDS temple.

I am completely and entirely stoked for this beautiful building to be built.

I wasn't able to attend the groundbreaking, but heard it was a beautiful time.  


There's a surprise there at the end of the video.  :)Man I love that guy!

Random fact #5

As a child, my parents worked out at this gym where we would go for day care.  As you walked to the front door, the sidewalk was replaced with a HUGE storm drain.  My dad would tease me and tell me that there were alligators under the drain and if you shook it they would  eat you.  As I would timidly walk across the drain, my dad would stomp and march on the end so it would shake the whole storm drain.  I would bawl and run to the end as fast as I could before the alligators that were in there could get to me.  

I believed my dad, and I still do. 

I'm still very afraid to walk over these storm drains in fear that the second I start across, it will begin to rattle and shake and I'll become that terrified little girl again.   I avoid walking on them at all costs.  If I do have to walk over them, I walk very slowly and cautiously.  
It's a problem.  

Now it's your turn!!!
What childish thing(s) are you strangely afraid of???

I've heard that a lot lately....
"You've changed"
At first I thought to myself...
"No I haven't"
But as I looked at my life and the things I've been doing and the choices I've been making I realized something...
I have changed. 
I've finally become myself.
I finally know who I am.
I finally feel like I act like myself all the time.
I'm finally happy with the way I am.
I finally respect myself and believe in myself.

I don't know how it happened, but I'm sure glad it did.

I feel real.  I feel renewed.

I don't feel like I'm being who everyone else wants me to be.

I don't feel fake.

I feel like I'm becoming the person I always wanted to be.

I feel like although it's different to some people, it's perfect for me.

I feel great about life and can't wait for the next steps! :)

Sometimes I wish I were asian....

Perhaps that a strange thing to wish.  But I don't keeer.

Other times I wish for nothing more than I have.
My life right now is in a good place.  Good home. Good family. Good friends.
The only thing missing is a good job....but we are working on that.
I'm not working After School Club because of my practicum.  Which by the way is fine.
I finished my first block last week and was terribly sad to leave those children.  But more on that later. :)
Other than that I am doing amazing.  Life is good and I'm happy!
Even though I'm not Asian :)
