Overwhelmed with appreciation.

I have been overwhelmed lately.
Overwhelmed with people.
People who inspire me to want such goodness in my life.
I am overwhelmed of appreciation to the influence they have on me.
I sit here and am so grateful for the things I have in my life. I feel as though lately I have been able to open my heart and mind and see the greater perspective in life. I know what I want in life and am ready to do whatever it takes to get there. I truly believe life is what we make of it. People come into our lives for a reason. I believe nothing just "happens" but that the lord has a hand in all things.

I am blessed to have such amazing people in my life who help me try and reach my greatest potential. I feel inspired everyday because of the good people I am surrounded by. Friends and family are who pull me through when times get rough. Not only that but these sweet babies have some of the greatest impact on my life. They are my everything.

They are there to keep me happy and who make life an adventure.
Gordon B. Hinckley has a quote that I love and try and live by. It says,

"In all of living have much fun
and laughter.
Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured."

I love that. So much in fact that I have that quote framed and in my bathroom so that I see it daily. Yes life is hard, but make the most of it. Not only endure it but enjoy it.

Choose the people in your life who bring you up. A true friend is someone who will make you want to become better. Life is about growing and becoming what you can be. I firmly believe that. I am and will forever be grateful for the people in my life who help shape me into who I am. Stop and think about your life and really figure out who makes an impact on it... Run with that. Be who you can be. We need to stop worrying about the little things and run with who we are and what we want with nothing holding us back. If we want to be happy, be. Attitude is everything. Anything can be as great as you want it to be. Make the most of what you have and appreciate the people who are in it. Live NOW and prepare to become what we want to be tomorrow.
Happy Monday everyone.
Be that friend that you so badly wish you had.

I am especially grateful for the inspiration this sweet lady gives me.
I watch this and am in awe of her courage and strength.
May we all be like her in some small way.
