what a difference a day makes

I have a job prospect that looks very promising . as always it puts future Hanson tours esp tulsa in question . but i can only remain optimistic , ask for the time off when I'm offered the job, offer to make up the hours and hope for the best . from what i was feeling yesterday , it wouldn't be the end of the world if i missed Moe or Btti , but i don't want to . in reality they are only a max of work / 6 days . the worst will be if have to nix driving to go to tulsa . I was really looking forward to a relaxed time in the car vs crazy airports for the 5th time . oh well . life happens .

Sheila walsh Notes
the power of forgiveness Hebrews 12:2 Hebrews 12:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
endured : suffer; patiently ; remain in existence ; last . synonyms - last live ; undergo ; experience .
perfect bible study for today . maybe if no say ill find missing Hanson doesn't hurt all that much .

happy 35th birthday to Mr Taylor Hanson / personal Hanson rant

this years theme is giving back . for the past 3-4 years , Tay has been the founder and active member of the non - profit grocery and food program Food On the move . Im so proud of him for using his heart and part of his celebrity to help the less fortunate . I need to tell him I'm inspired from him to do work in human services . I dont intend to make him cry , but he just might .
In other news I'm back looking for work with my Dors counselors . this of course questions future Hanson tour ism . but honestly , id rather have a new album / music. a very candid fan shared her thoughts on a personal blog ( that I'm not linking to keep private as poss . and we've all been sharing very calm thoughts on face book . heres mine . Carrie Nairn I’m having the same issue they’ve spread themselves s into too many things that are not music;Carrie Nairn Agree gabby . That’s why I’m on the fence about doing btti again , . This Years looked like free fall that made them reconsider tye dye . I’d love to , but I don’t want the fans to ruin my experience. Carrie Nairn Paola Rizzato I have the problem of being so short and handicapped if I don’t get near the front I can’t see hanson . It’s not a status thing for me at all . I’ve been pushed out of front row. Few times too by greedy fans. I hate celebrating my idols birthday in this negATive manner , but like the blogger , I've had these feelings for a while . Hanson aren't giving us enough new things to keep us interested . I don't know how much longer can remain interested . ?? String theory better be good .

a Pre tay birthday entry because this is my fave tay moment of all time so far . after 40 shows

Carrie Nairn My first hanson back to the island was this for me I’d always had 2 goals on my bucket list : seeing Taylor solo for more than 1 song and seeing Hanson in a foreign country . The night before Taylor’s solo day I got so excited and worked up i almost got sick . 💕but then 4:45 pm finally came and I was in heaven . I was Soo happy I didn’t know what to do. really considering btti 19 because of this moment too .

also Ive got some perfect Fotors ready to play with .

Power of a Positive Attitude
Jan 14
Power of a Positive Attitude
You oversleep. You get a flat tire. You spill your coffee. You get a parking ticket. You lose your keys. Your list of to-dos is a mile long. You’re tired, frustrated, and a little bit hangry.

…I’ve been there.

There was a day when I woke up two hours late for my job… don’t ask me how I managed that. And when I was ONE turn away from work, I saw the lights behind me.

A copper.

So I pulled over and began to tear up as the officer came up and asked me where I was headed. I looked to my right and pointed towards work. I was so close. So, so close.

I almost let those emotions determine my day. I was frustrated and flustered at first, and I allowed my feelings to flood my mind. That day could have been horrible from that point on if I allowed it to be. I could’ve been moping and wallowing in frustration even longer as I explained to my boss what happened and continued to carry out all my tasks for the day.

But I didn’t.

Yes, those things happened, but they didn’t define me. My attitude allowed me to enjoy the day and smile and laugh and joke even more than usual.

Your attitude is what determines your day. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. The small things in life don’t need to be worried and stressed about so much. The alarm can be fixed. The tire can be replaced. The coffee can be refilled. The parking ticket can be paid. The keys can be found. The to-dos can get to-done. You can get sleep. You can get some food. Maybe a Snickers to satisfy.

Your life is great. You just have to allow it to be.

People don’t make you angry - you allow the anger to dwell within you. Circumstances don’t upset you - you allow yourself to get upset. You choose to worry, you choose to criticize, you choose to blame, and you choose to complain. No one else decides this for you.

You can’t be moving up if your thoughts are bringing you down.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your way of thinking about it. Redirect your attitude. Remember that life is a gift - don’t ruin the contents. Choosing positive thinking provides you with confidence, vibrant health, and true beauty.

Your last day could be tomorrow - choose to live to the fullest each day and live with the attitude you’d want to be remembered for. Remain fixed on the good. See your problems as opportunities. When you keep your face to the sunshine you can’t see the shadows.

Count your blessings

There are so many good things in your life. Look at the blue sky, watch the sunset, go for a good run, have some ice cream. Be thankful for your family. Be thankful for a home. Be thankful for food. There are people worse off than you.

See the good

Bring out the best in people. Bring out the best in situations. Don’t assume. Don’t judge. You can’t control people or circumstances, but you can control your attitude. You can think positively and be light to others.

View setbacks as stepping stones

Don’t get frustrated when things don’t go your way. God knows what He’s doing, and He’s placing the right things in your life. When something doesn’t go according to plan, trust that there’s a better one. You are being moved. Believe in that.

Pray

Pray for a positive attitude each day. Pray to recognize your blessings and see the good. Pray for others. Pray to have faith.

Smile

Such a simple thing. Smiles are contagious, so shine those pearly whites. Smile at strangers, smile at your friends, smile at your dog. It could make someone’s day.

Having the right attitude will fill you with energy and peace. Be a light to those around you. Redirect your mind. Today is your day if you allow it to be.

g to be that person that sets an example just as Christ did for us.

In this new way of living I found myself protecting her by turning to the word of God and teaching her what Ephesians 6:12 says:

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

And by setting the example of what God commands of us in John 13:34:

“Love one another as I have loved you”

Satan wants us to retaliate because it allows resentment, anger, and evil doing to build in us. I believe he specifically does this because he knows what Love can do.
Here is an example of what Love does:

“Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.” -1 Peter 4:8
And loving protects us because it teaches us:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I told my daughter to keep in mind…

Love may not change the other person instantly, because changing involves a heart transformation. A heart transformation from my experience has only taken place when the other person is ready and willing. But, love does change the way you react and the way you live out life. Love can allow you to forgive, move on and not allow satan to root in you. I admire my daughter for choosing to love despite what she is up against. It shows a lot of maturity, obedience and faith on her part and this mama couldn’t be prouder.

No ones ever asked and I've never really thought why specifically Annas my favorite actresses . ? i think its because she chooses characters that are independent , sometimes funny , sometimes dramatic , but most of all fun . I think its ironic that her first role as vada in my girl are all these things and what i was so inspired by at 9 26 years ago .
I Did look into my certification on hccs website . unfortunately i missed the human services courses this spring semester , but hoping to pick them up this next fall n spring .
