“You can be excellent in every way. You can be first class. There is no need for you to be a scrub. Respect yourself. Do not feel sorry for yourself. Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you. Polish and refine whatever talents the Lord has given you. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities. And forever and always be Loyal to the church.”
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
I have this quote on my wall in my room, and lately I have been reading it quite often. It is so straight forward and inspirational, it reminds me of the important things in life and that if we will life this way we can truly be happy.
Life is truly wonderful! I love this holiday season and the joy it brings! I am so incredibly blessed!! School is (successfully) done for the semester, Heavenly Father loves me, and I have amazing people in my life! I couldn't be happier.

I have THE GREATEST friends. I am SO lucky!!
Girls Nights are my FAVORITE!!! I have THE cutest friends in the world. We went to Gecko Grill (of course) for dinner. It has been our tradition since Junior High, never get sick of it! We took tons of pictures, caught up on life, boys, school, jobs, and everything else!! Then we went to NEW MOON!!! I am definitely a huge Twilight fan! I couldn’t put the books down! Although the movies aren’t quite as good as I imagine in my head, I still enjoy them! These girls are so wonderful, they always make me feel so good! I feel so blessed to have these girls in my life. They’re always there for me, and no matter how busy and separated our lives get, there is always time for girls nights!
