The life of a....Bachelorette....(s)

-The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes-
-I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant-

-To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing-

-Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive-

-We do not remember days, we remember MOMENTS. The richnes of life lies in memories we haven't forgotten.-

-Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today-

-Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending-

-Laugh as much as you breathe, and Love as long as you live-

-A Friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway!!!-

-Sometimes you pick your friends, sometimes they pick you-

-A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more-

-A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself-

-A friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else-

-Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going-

-Memory is the mother of all wisdom.-

-Memory believes before knowing remembers. Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders. -

-Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.-

- Live life to the FULLEST-

-Memories are the diary that we carry about with us-

-Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose!-

R.I.P Summer 2010

Tomorrow marks the death of Summer 2010. For tomorrow is the first day of school. This sentence used to bring such joy to me when I was a wee young lass... But alas it doesn't have that effect on me anymore. Why you ask?!? Well to put it quite frankly I am burned out!! I feel like I've been going to school my whole life... OH WAIT, I HAVE!!

Summer of 2010 was a very welcome and necessary break for me! I had a blast. I started off summer by moving into a new place with new roommates. Traveled to the exotic locations of Grace, Idaho (population 306 that includes the bovines) for a wedding. Ventured to the lake many, many, many times. Attempted to wakeboard, Failed! Then attempted again and got up but couldn't stay up!! Third times a charm cause I got up and haven't looked back since. In FACT wakeboarding is my new favorite!! I LOVE IT!! If I accomplish nothing else in life... I'll die happy accomplishing this one thing!! Tried my hand at jetskiiing!! That right there is God's greatest gift to mankind!! It's like a four-wheeler on water, BOMB!! Went swimming everyday I could, many times right before work. Soaked up some summer sun... Got the new nickname of the Blonde Mexican. BBQ'ed it up like all the meat known to mankind was in my freezer and I needed to get rid of it. Stayed up late, and slept in late! Day in and day out I ventured into the Lobster to work! I love my job! Do I love all of my employees?!? YOU BET I DO!! ha ha. I went camping, I got tan, I had adventures, I made memories, and I lived up every single summer day. But the saying reigns true... Time flys when you're having fun. AND IT DID!! School starts tomorrow, I'm ready physically I got my books, and notebooks, and pens, and my trusty backpack. But I'm not ready mentally!! I have this one semester left and I'll have my associates, but at the same time I don't wanna start! It's bittersweet cause I'll be done, but I don't wanna do these last few classes to get done!! Don't you just love life?!? Cause I sure do!!
