“She built a cadge of ribs and skin and promptly locked a lion in. It seemed to barbaric, to contain a beast, for surely only hear heart it’d feast. But contrary wise, the lion was smart and lived inside her chest to protect her heart.”
So the resolutions, goals, and priorities for this year have been made (if you would like to see them in a post comment bellow). But the thing is, this is that time where we have to take the action do cause the dream of the positive reaction. Last year was the year I decided I needed to change, so sticking to my resolutions wasn’t something hard. I knew what I wanted, and I put in the work and made my dream a reality, and it wasn’t too hard. I also made realistic goals that challenged me in so many ways. Looking back on my resolutions from last year I achieved much of them, and those I didn’t achieve I either matured out of, achieved in a diffrent way, or I put it on my list to work on for this year. It’s all about making yourself better.
For most people to take the first step to make a change is so hard, and to keep it up until you break the cycle of whatever you don’t like in your life to create a positive habit. The first step, well, I can’t help you with that. When you write these resolutions, goals, and priorities, you have to do it for yourself. But what I can do is motivate you, to keep it going and that’s what the rest of this post is about.
When you do finally realize your goals and the steps you got to take, to get there keeping it up is the hardest part.
It was once said:
The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.
But every single step is hard until you build up endurance.
For 2018 to keep up with your goals sometimes it’s helpful to have a motto. Something that keeps you going, or makes you happy. It keeps you in line for your goals. Last year was Good Vibes=Good Life, I realized I liked saying that about February, then I decided to change it to my blog motto on the top banner. I repeated it to myself when I needed a lift, or when I was doing homework and struggling it reminded me of the future that I was working for, and what was making me happy. This years motto is Hustle, because I know with all the things I want to do, and I have planed I’m going to have to hustle. You just gotta remember your motto, and sometimes it helps to put in a central place.
Speaking of a central place. It also helps to have dream boards. It’s the law of attraction whatever energy you put out into the world you receive back. So, a dream board helps keep that positive attitude, and helps you visualize what you want. If you can see it, you can have it.
This dream board can be your computer wallpaper, or your phone lockscreen. It can even be pictures around your room that bring you joy and keep you going. I had a picture of me and my boyfriend at homecoming since September, and my home screen was my soccer schedule. It’s so simple but I changed my screen to my boyfriend kissing my cheek on new years, and a close friend of mine I haven’t seen in awhile. It just makes me happy, and the new pictures it’s like a sense of renewal. That I have these people in my life for the next year, and I can do so much in this new year. It’s crazy, but it works.
You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Remember that. I hope you have a great year, and a great life. Like and follow bellow. Thanks for reading.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends. Drive safe out on the roads.

Back to school edition!
Wow back to school season… I don’t want to go. But, I start on Thursday. Yep, I’m a Sophmore now (in case you were wondering). I don’t know what I feel going into this year. I’m on the cross country team, I’m a huge member of the FFA, I have great friends, and I’m making some more and it’s not making me anxious. I’m looking forward to the dances, the cross races, the football games and the nights with my friends making me feel happy and alive. I aso may be taking some really hard advanced classes but I am taking guitar so I can finally be a part of the band family.
But at the same time, when I walked into the library to pick up my books before school I saw all the people I’ve known since pre school. It’s just weird because I felt this overwhelming feeling of being confined and being left out. Small town problem I guess. I’m also starting to get anxious a lot more in social situations and instead of having panic attacks, or other things, I have a mental breakdown and my body starts to shake and then I breakdown and cry, and I don’t cry.
But let’s be honest here, I shouldn’t be getting anxious. I finally have a great group of friends and I don’t have to go through some of the things I did last year. But the fear of the unknown is always a hard thing I guess. I’m taking almost all advanced classes, and I still don’t know anyone who’s taking them with me.
School can be a drag, but it doesn’t have to be a living hell. You should always look on the bright side. Sorry about my rant, but I figured someone else out there would feel better because of it.
In the end , school is probably going to be great and I have nothing to worry about, but yet I still worry. :p
In the end I’m going to go to school, and I could either drag myself through the entire experience, or I could choose to enjoy the entire experience and face it head on. And I chose to face anything head on that’s why this year is going to be my year.
So I’ll catch you on the flip side!
I changed my theme on my blog, and I will be adding some portfolio pictures as I have gotten into my photography more. Remember that if you find me tolerable, like and follow for morethe button is down bellow.
“Hello children, this party is invitation only” The man at the door said crouching down to Adla and looking at Adla.
“Hey man” Adam said shaking his fist standing taller than him.
Adla put her hand on Adam’s fist, and looked into the man at the door’s eyes. “I know you want to let us in” she said in a soft tone. “Don’t we look nice? We don’t need an invitation now do we?” Adla said, as the man mumbled back “No, you don’t need an invitation, please, come in.” He said.
They walked through arm and arm, and then took their place alongside a wall.
“You stay here, I’m going to go talk around and get some answers” Adam said.
“Stay in sight, I can help you out telepathically, I know you’re going to need it. What name are you going to go by?” Adla replied.
“How about? Adam Sharp?” Adam replied.
“Don’t you think that’s a little close to our real name? Smith?” Adla replied.
“Nah, its a cool name, it sounds smooth” He replied. She just rolled her eyes as she motioned him to go on, because she really didn’t want to be there in the first place.
“Hello sir” Adam said walking up to the first person he saw and shook hands.
“Hello young man” he replied, “My name is Jeff”
“Nice to meet you Jeff, I’m Adam, Adam Sharp” He said confidently dipping his hat.
“I haven’t seen you around the company” Jeff said.
“Well, that’s because I was invited by my, sister’s, husband’s second cousin who works here… I don’t really remember his name, but he told me to come and see if I would want a job here because there was an opening.”
“I didn’t think their was an opening” Jeff replied, “but it’s nice that you’re here.”
“No problem, heck, if you want, I can introduce you to some people who can tell you about the company and can help you decide if you want a job here.”
“I’d love that! Thank you so much”
Adla just stood against the wall and shaking her head because he was doing so well and gave him a smirk, and as he walked away he gave her a two thumbs up and smiled. Adla rolled her eyes and smiled at the ground. She watched her brother for awhile, then watched all the other people, and all the fancy people dance and mingle.
They all look so happy and normal.
“Hi, I’m Isaac” the brown haired blue eyed, tan boy walked up to Adla. He was tall and strong.
“Hello Isaac, I’m Adla” She said glancing up at his eyes, then looked back at the crowd dancing.
“Would you like to dance?” he asked still looking at her. “I don’t know how, I probably wouldn’t be any good”
“Come on, give it a try.” Isaac said nudging her.
“Okay” she gave in.
He took her hand and they got on the dance floor.
“Now put your right hand with mine, and put your left hand up on my shoulder.” he instantly took his position on the dance floor. “Now, move your right foot back as I step forward. Then bring your left foot around like so and make an ‘L’ shape. Then step forward with your left foot and do the opposite action. And just keep going making that rectangle.”
As he was explaining it she was already being able to lift her eyes up to him and dance smoothly.
“Okay, now we’re coming out for the spin” and he twirled her as her dress flared out elegantly catching the light.
“See, you’re a natural, as well as beautiful” He said looking down and smiling at Adla.
Going back to the original waltz position.
“So why are you here?” She asked.
“My parents work here, and they drug me along because they want me to work here too.”
“Oh, what is this company about anyways?”
“I hear its a company that works with children that are different to better their minds, and it has different levels to it and stuff. They also give them a chanse to live a normal life, one of the levels of employee is someone who takes the kids and gives them a life, but I hear they bounce around”
“Why have I never heard about this before?”
“I heard my parents talking at nights, it’s a secret organization, because sometimes people come after the kids because they don’t believe with the company.”
“Oh, where do they find the kids?”
“Anywhere and everywhere, sometimes they are just donated.”
“Yeah, that’s why I don’t want to work here, it’s too weird”
The song ended, and he dipped her. He put his hands on her waist gently and she put her arms around his neck.
“After this, do you want to stay in touch?” Isaac asked.
“Yeah, I’d like that.” Adla replied and smiled. He pulled her close and they danced.
Adam on the other hand wasn’t doing as good. He was just having fun socializing with all the guys he forgot about the mission. He was actually offered a job.
Hey guys, its Issie. Hope you are having a wonderful day, and I am posting just like I promised. Today’s post is a My Life Monday because God has always been something very important in my life, but it wasn’t until now I’ve been trying to deepen my relationship with Him.
Lately I’ve found myself just saying little prayers even though they don’t sound like prayers. Just these moments where I go “Oh God help me right now” it may sound sarcastic but I’m actually implying His help. With someone like me I find that to be the easiest thing to do, and I am legit so shocked when looking back and thinking that most of the time, it does work! It’s shocking what can happen when you let Him into you. It was never some big habit I had to get myself into for the type of praying I do but now it’s like second nature, if I need help I almost sarcastically say “Oh, God help me” but I mean it, and it actually works because despite how I may sound sarcastic I submerge myself in the possibility.
Sometimes if I remember, I also pray for all of my friends at night and for stuff that’s going on in my life.
I’m not perfect, and I don’t have the perfect relationship with Him, but it’s real and it’s mine, and something real is all I’ve ever wanted. For a long time it would feel like I was just wishing on a star that was just a plane, but I feel like I’m connected to Him.
Yesterday was Father’s Day, and last Father’s Day… kind of ironic but my mom and I had to get away from my dad for a bit, and it has turned a full 360. I do believe that one of the reasons for this is because of Jesus Christ.
It’s a matter of continuation, and giving your trust to something so unbelievable that it’s true. I know it’s hard, trust me I know, but with this little spark of a relationship I have with Him, I’m going to turn it into a fire.
So, hang in there everyone who doesn’t feel okay, and is depressed, and broken. This too shall pass, and it always gets better. Catch ya on the flip side!
