It's Great to be 28!

Who used to be so scared of aging? I WAS!
I couldn't even tell you how dreadful it was to me. 
I wasn't scared because of wrinkles and stuff. I was scared of aging and not living life to the fullest. Too many desires of my heart are out of reach. Dreams were blurry and goals remained but goals. 
The good news is I didn't stay being the person I was. 
I was different then and I'm more different now. 
I could talk to that person now and tell her how it was and she will be happy to be gone forever.
 She will be happy about what we've become.

So! I thought it's sweet to write a few things I love the most over the past year. 

Turning 28 at this point in my life is perfect. 
The way I know, live  and love the gospel at 28 is wonderful.
 I've never felt closer to my Savior. 
78 won't make me understand the Atonement fully but the testimony
 I have now about It is life changing.
I've never felt more like a daughter to my Heavenly Father than now. 
It's a relationship that continues to shine everyday.
 I've come to recognize, accept and do his will more lovingly. 
A little more submissive each day.  

I've been more kind to myself. Gone are the low self esteem and unkind self perception. 
Gone are the I can't do it and I don't know what and how to do. 
Gone are everyone else is better than I am and I will never be good enough. 
A little kindness to the heart everyday is the way for me to turn more outward than inward. 
I'm more comfortable in my own skin now, more patient with my own imperfections 
and forgive myself more quickly. 
That results to healthier and happier relationships at home and outside.
 I continue to learn but I'm glad i grew to see others raw and still so beautiful 
and be patient with others imperfections too. 

I know more now what to do. 
I feel confident about the future. I know what work to pursue,
skills I need to develop, what books I should read and the role it plays in the great plan.
 (okay maybe the books are too obvious) 
But everything really matters. 
At 28, I feel more certain how I would and could bless my home and my own posterity. 
I know I'm a woman and the influence I have is eternally important. 
I came to love temple marriage like how my Heavenly Father wants me to. 
I have to insert that because it is true. 

But every girl in the church knows that! No, they don't. 
For some, these realizations came early and easy. But for most, it came slowly and hard. 
But to each is her own story. 
Whatever your story is I hope it is what will yield you the greatest eternal advantage. 
I can see mine that way.

Season for Gratitude

It's been too long, I know. 
It's time I get a post up because the season for gratitude is always too. (like how President Monson described prayer) 

As always, it's been up and down. But blessings come after much tribulation. 
You have no idea how hard it has been emotionally and financially. 
But see, it worked. The gospel always works. 

I'm grateful for an ever supportive family, who silently but firmly knows I just needed time until I figure out what job to do. They've been there for me no matter what. The best support system ever. They are the sunshine I always keep in my pocket. 

A circle of friends who and I think I would be understating this.
 Friends who love and enjoy the blessings of the atonement. A visit from friends for my mom, long distance conversation with mission bestfriends who I can relate to and endless possibilities of building more friendships at home. 

And guess what?
 It took very long for me to realize that I just got the job I have been praying for several months ago. My prayers kinda changed as to the specifics and what not but really.. it's amazing. 
Working as a remote executive assistant sounds like nothing special now here in the country
 but  the job works for me. And I work for the job. 
Yes, I miss dressing up and the human interaction but 
I enjoy the time it's giving me as I am gradually starting my game on.
 I am super excited about the things I do for them and the learning it offers me too. 
Sure enough, there are other opportunities peeking at the door 
but inspiration for every decision making is whats more important. 

Church callings, dear. Seminary teacher.. I mean.. what? Why? Just imagine my happiness. 
I'm thrilled about how I will have an impact to these young minds? 
Scary too huh? But when the Lord calls He qualifies. 
I will also serve as a Single Adults representative which totally blows me away because of reasons. :D 

I will be honest, I'm surprised with the confidence and faith attached as I'm writing this post. 
It's great. 

I am a happy camper.
