The Problem with Optimism

Despite my depression I have always thought of myself as an optimistic person, until the day my therapist told me to stop... People who seem to be the happiest are those that are the most optimistic. Because of this, there is a lot of push to be optimistic. Now, I'm not saying that optimism is... Continue Reading →

What I Wish People Understood About My Depression

I carefully wrapped tape around each and every finger, covering up each fingerprint. Throughout the day everything I touched was numb to the most sensitive part of my fingers. I found myself enjoyed the lack of feeling. There was no real reason for taping my fingertips. At the time, it was just a random thing... Continue Reading →

The Advice That Changed My View of Life

"Who was I ?" It was asked in a car, I don’t remember if it was my car or hers but that is really besides the point. I had recently landed my dream job and found that it did not make me happy which made me question everything I knew about myself. I felt overwhelmingly... Continue Reading →

Falling In Love… With My Imperfect Body

Regardless of what my weight has been or how long I took to get ready for the day, every time I walk past a mirror I notice the physical imperfections. I think to myself that I am so ugly and fat that nothing I do can improve that. Then, I sadly continue on with my... Continue Reading →

Am I making the LDS LGBT suicide delemma worse?

  This post is about something very personal to me, so I hope you can bear with me. Also, I am not going to pretend for a second that I know anything about what it is like to be an LGBT member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I feel that... Continue Reading →

Should I stay or should I go on a mission? It was not my decision…

I was 19 when the age changed happened and women could leave on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at that age. Let me tell you, I had no clue what to think when I heard that! It was an exciting time and everyone around me was putting in their... Continue Reading →

Proud to be a Harry Potter nerd!

Harry Potter has been on my mind a lot lately. My little brothers have been watching the movies for the first time over these last couple of weeks, which has got my husband and I watching them again. Then, with with the amazing Alan Rickman passing away, I feel as if Harry Potter is everywhere. And... Continue Reading →

A slight change of heart toward resolutions… slight!

New Years Resolutions... yeah I don't do them and never have. Why? Because I think they are stupid! If I do happen to make a resolution it lasts like a week or two then... it goes forgotten. I also know that I am not alone in feeling that way, so what is the point of... Continue Reading →

Learning from Stephanie Nielson

I got to listen to Stephanie Nielson speak on October 1st! She is my hero for so many reasons and I love reading her blog so I was extremely excited to listen to her speak at Utah Valley University. I was disappointed that I had to sit in the back but it was just incredible to... Continue Reading →

Why I stopped asking “Who am I?”

I want to know who I am. Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? I know that I am not alone in these questions! The issue is that I am asking the wrong questions and then the world likes to give me less then perfect answers. I live in a time where... Continue Reading →

I was wrong about true love… this is what true love is~

Love is a topic that has been spoken of a lot this week. Being married for two years I like to think that I know what love really is. But just like I thought I knew what love was on my wedding day, I know that my understanding of love as well as my love... Continue Reading →

Does anyone else have problems answering the question, “Tell us a little about yourself?”

Hey everyone. So… I think I’m having a midlife crisis in my twenties…. Is that even possible? I don’t know, but I realized I do not know myself. Last week in Relief Society they went around and had everyone talk about themselves. We were to say our favorite hobbies and our favorite scripture. Now the... Continue Reading →

Imperfect Nails

I get so frustrated with a small fact: no matter how hard I try to paint my nails and make them cute they just never are. It looks bad because the nail polish is always running onto my skin and no matter how still I sit while waiting for them to dry they still get... Continue Reading →
