my thoughts on life...

I feel like a true blogger now that I am sharing "my thoughts on life" as if I have anything profound to add to the world full of sayings, advice, thoughts, quotes, mottos... etc. Even though I've reached the ripe old age of 21, I know that I have a lot to learn and a lot of growing up left to do, but here are some conclusions that I've recently come to.

Life changes fast
People are inherently good but it is impossible to see that if you never look at life through their eyes.
It's important to give those around you a break, because probably sooner than later you're going to need one yourself.
It's important to give yourself a break.
Talking helps.
Sometimes life needs to be treated like an automatic instead of a manual.
Utah weather makes my skin break out.
Don't expect anything.
Broken hearts help us understand ourselves and others better.
Life isn't perfect, no matter how much we plan, prepare and hope for the best.
People aren't perfect.
Love is a powerful thing.
There's a weird sort of healing power in driving around town, belting music and doing absolutely nothing, but doing it with really good company.
Life requires friends.
Apt. 98 is where the best support system of friends and roommates a girl could ask for was born.
My mom wasn't crazy or OCD when she said a house needed to be cleaned once a week...
People are the same everywhere you go.
You can love a someone you have never met that is over a thousand miles away just by seeing a picture of her face.
Taking time to think is crucial to life.
No matter where you are in the world, you can bet there are people thinking of you, loving you and supporting you.
My parents are a couple of geniuses.
Life is to be enjoyed. People are to be loved. Opportunities are to be taken.

Life is a crazy good thing.
