as of late: my (little) people

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Happy Wednesday! I am dying over this weather right now! Blogging out on my apartment patio in 80 degree weather has never felt so good.

Life update: MY LIFE ROCKS. It always has. It just rocks really hard these days :) I am working at Amara Day Spa in Orem and I never knew I could love a job so much! The people I work with are so talented and sweet and I'm really starting to feel like I belong there. It's the best feeling in the world! It's a great fit for me, seeing that I will officially be starting hair school in August. I'm really getting a feel for the salon environment and it's making me even more sure about what I've chosen to do as an occupation. :)

I just want to do a quick little rant about my favorite people in the world
My cousin Ellie Beckstrand is one of my best friends in the entire world and ever since I can remember, I've looked up to her as a big sister. She's the big sis I never had :) They come up every 3 weeks or so from St. George and it feels like Christmas Eve when I'm awaiting their visit. It's always so nice to have a big sister to hang out and talk with. Aaaand.... I might be bias but Ellie's kiddos (my "niece and nephew") are the cutest kids I have ever seen. I'll prove it.

Told y'all they were cuties :)
Have the best day ever lovelies.

adequate for the want or need; sufficient for the purpose or to satisfy desire:

We all want to be enough. We all want to have a purpose; to satisfy someone's life. I often beg the question.... 
"Am I enough?"

What an awful question, what an awful feeling. My answer to my own question is always NO. It's almost a default- Aly is never enough. Aly is never worthy. Aly is not wanted. Aly is not enough. In the past, I have made myself miserable, constantly wondering why I am not adequate or why I cannot make anybody happy. I ask myself these things assuming automatically, with no thought or consideration, that I AM NOT ENOUGH.

But wait... What if I am enough? What if I am more than enough? What if I can make someone happy and what if I told myself I was enough every single day?

And someday, I will realize why
