Graditude in Simple Service.

As most of you know my whole life has drastically changed over the last couple days from the "forever student" mentality to the "grown up" career life. In the process of all these changes I began to realize that Peter Pan had something going for him. Growing up isn't all that I dreamed it would be. Suddenly so much was on my plate. Just my plate, no one was sharing the plate or dishing the food out for me-- I had to do it all.

Why did this seem so foreign to me? I have been very independent my whole life! I don't know the answer to that question. I do know that I was surprised to be slightly overwhelmed.

ANYWAY, that is not what I want to write about. I have had SO many people email, FB message, text, snapchat, call, etc. to congratulate me or check in to see how my first day went. Those people took 10 seconds to reach out to me and it reminded me that I have so much support. I don't just have the support of Heavenly Father or my family but I have support from friends both near and far. It's been incredible to be reminded of that and how wonderful life truly is. Thank you to all those that reached out, and to all those that reach out to others-- that service doesn't go unnoticed! Trust me, EVERYONE loves to feel cared about and I am not immune to that need.

I have been so blessed as I have been guided down the path I am on. I have no doubt I am where I am supposed to be where I am RIGHT now. My roundabout, u-turn, off-roading experiences in life brought me here. I am stronger now than I was 7 years ago as I tried to figure out what to do with my life.

I am grateful to be WHO I am. I am grateful to be WHERE I am. I am grateful to DO all that I have and can. 

I want to leave with you this song, mostly for a few select lines in the song that really resonate with me:
"Days are good and that's the way it should be.

Nights are good and that's the way it should be.

Life is good and that's the way it should be."
 You deserve to be happy, you just have to realize it!
