Just wanted to tell everyone that I wish them a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! Remember what you are thankful for, and thank your Heavenly Father! We live in hard times, and we need to cling to those we love and to what truly matters. I am thankful for my husband. He is the most amazing man and the biggest blessing in my life. I thank my Father every day that he loves me and I love him eternally. I am thankful for my family. I love my mom and dad with all my heart. I honestly couldn't ask for better parents. My siblings, Jorden, Landon and Kylie are my darlings. I love being their big sister, and I only hope that I have and will always be there for them and be a good example. I love my whole extended family, including my in-laws, and am grateful that we are all close. Scott and I pray for them on a regular basis. I am thankful for my job, and the wonderful people that I work with. I truly am blessed to have the managers I do. They are more friend than boss. I am grateful for my husband's support in my decision to attend UCMT and persue my dreams. I love massage school so far, and am succeeding more than I thought I ever could, and I know that is because my Heavenly Father is guiding me and supporting me when my 16 hour days are just too much. My brain is retaining information better than it ever has in my life, and it really is a miracle. I know I am not doing this alone. I am grateful for my friends. I have a few very, very close friends, whom I treasure deeply (You know who you are). I am thankful beyond words, for my never-ending and true testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know I am a daughter of God, and therefore, I can get through anything. I would be nothing without that knowledge. I am grateful for the small things in life. The beautiful leaves that crunch under my feet, the snow-caped mountains that are laced with clouds, babies that are so adorable I just can't help but smile because they just shine with God's perfect love. There are so many things I am thankful and grateful for. But these are my thoughts today. I love you all!!
Twilight was not as cool as I wanted it to be. There were several scenes that were completely changed, and the acting was not exceptional. It was fun to watch, but you can tell that they only took 4 months to film, and had a low budget. (Edwards sparkling skin just made me laugh). But it was ok. It really did no justice for the book. If anyone watches the movie first, please do not think that the book is that cheesy, because I promise you, its not.
It is finally here!!! Words cannot describe how flipping excited I am! I have been waiting for this day for a very long time. HAHAHHAHAH Yay! Jo is having a birthday party/twilight party. It should be amazing!! I will comment on what i thought of the movie tomorrow:)
Last night in my Professional Development class, we learned so much about the power of positive thinking. If any of you have not seen The Secret, look it up. It will change your life, and the way you view the world and how you have the power to control your happiness. This is a picture of me when I was 19 at the St. George temple with my roommates when we were going to Dixie State. I want to look like this again, and I believe I can. I am going to recite this everyday:
"I am happy and grateful now that I am slim, trim, and beautiful and weigh 125 pounds. It is so. Thank you."
I know that if you focus on something, the universe will help it happen. I know that thinking as if I weigh 125, and love the way I look, will help me achieve it. Thinking "I hate being fat, I am fat" will only keep me fat. I have to think positively, and love myself, and my subconcious will help me make the right decisions in order to live a healthier lifestyle.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Instructor, as well as a Certified HypnoDoula and graduated from the Utah College of Massage Therapy October 2009. I have been running my own business in my home since then, and I absolutely love what I do. I believe and have felt first-hand the healing power of massage work. I have a passion for birth and empowering the mother and facilitating healing. I have been married for 9 years to my very best friend, and am a mommy to my adorable son's Carson and Ethan and my beautiful daughter Sophia with another on the way!
