So basically, there is 2 1/2 weeks left of highschool for us, and we are uber’ psyched!!! lol. It has been a journey filled with laughter, memories, and most importantly growing up. We are so proud of everything we have accomplished these past four years. The other night we were talking about it at the dinner table with our dad, and we all were just in amazement of just how much we have done. High School started out awkward, and Courtney and I were beyond confused with who we were suppose to be, or how to fit in. Then, by the end of our Junior year is when I truly think we found who the real Court and Whit are, and what we want to do with our life’s. This year (Senior year) is probably the year we have grown up the most though. We have matured into beautiful young ladies with a lot of confidence, happiness, and passion to live life.
This morning, while Court and I were driving to school we were listening to our ipod and “Brighten up” by Mozella came on. It is a really fun song if you have not heard it, and the lyrics are all about brightening up someone’s day. As we were jamming out to this song trying to get pumped for class, Courtney stopped and said “Whit I really love this song, because it reminds me of you.” I laughed and asked her why. She told me that she used to be an unhappy person with low confidence, and I showed her what happiness is. She has always looked up to me, and I am such a person with high self-esteem who knows how to rub off my happiness onto others. Hearing this all put a smile on my face, and just made me think that is what I love to do. Changing people’s life’s is what I am meant to do. With that said, as I was cleaning my room today I found an old journal where I had written a great message I would like to share with you all:
“Do you ever feel like you just want to change the world? Something has inspired you so much that you just want to try it. Everyone in your surroundings looks the same, but you want to stand out. You have finally realized what you have been missing for all those years. And maybe just caught in the moment you realize what living life to the fullest really means. Everything feels right, and your quenched to try new things. You want to create something or do something like no one’s ever done it before. You’re at the point, where trying is actually working. Where you can move on, and not even regret the past. We only have this one life to live, so we shouldn’t waste time not living it. Remember the moments, and brighten up someone else’s day. The future only holds what we make it. Take a different route, and meet someone who could change your life. Smile, because it is only you who can create happiness for yourself.”-Whit ♥
So wanna play catch up guys??
Courtney just had her one month anniversary with her boyfriend Michael yesterday. Me on the other hand, fell for an amazing older guy, who ended up having to move away for family reasons. It is sad, because I have never felt as happy with anyone as what I did with him. That whole situation I am still trying to get over, and attempting to move on.
I got a second job at Panera bread, because I thought I was leaving Einstein bagels, until they offered me a raise I could not refuse. I worked two jobs for a little over month, and it was the hardest thing I had ever done, especially days when I had to go to school, and then work a double of like 15 Hours!! It made me tired and cranky, but the extra money made my bank account extra happy. lol
Court and I purchased our second car. She’s a black 2000 rx300, and costed us $8,300. Colorado snow is terrible, and so we decided we wanted to have one car that is good on gas, and one with 4WD for Colorado Winter’s. Also, with separate social life’s, etc a second car was becoming a necessity.
We are down to two classes now, one each block schedule day.
I just love the little guy, and he is at our house all day three times a week for when my mom babysits.
Here’s our new ride 🙂
Word to the wise, and some great advice my hubby Dave shared with me lately that really stuck: “why do you keep doing this to yourself but why continue down a path with no positive outcome. We as humans always justify a means to no end. Although we may not be able to predict the outcome of said events or… best action is to release the negative energy built up around our problems. Your potential is always much greater than you realize and when you do understand you were meant for something much greater only at that point will you walk into your desired path.”
P.S. Jillian Michael’s new book “Unlimited” is a phenomenal read, that just came out.
