Soulmate, This is for you...

"I won't worry my life away"

That's the perfect words to describe today. I was sitting in the Manti temple this morning thinking of the huge changes that about to hit my life in the next couple of weeks. I am going to move far away from my family, my horse, my friends, my beautiful mountains and my temple. Life is looking up.

Still, as I was trying to swallow this like a horse pill, I glanced at my siblings itunes playlist to find an 'ole favorite of mine, Remedy by Jason Mraz. My old roomate Jenny and I used to scream this song at the top of our lungs while driving down University Avenue in Provo, Utah.

It has some inspiring words for me in the my life right now:

1-I won't worry my life away
2-I will shine the light on my friends, when it all amounts to nothing; because I love them wherever they may be.
3-When I fall in Love, I take my time (hint, hint, 25 and still going strong)
4-Wherever I go, "I am still going to shine"

The fact is, there is nothing as constant as change in our lives, so we just have to learn how to bite the bullet, and sing at the top of our lungs, no matter how old we get.

SOULMATE!!! I got your message on Facebook, sorry I missed you. Thanks SO much for the post-it made my day, as they usually do. So, when are you packing up? You are in for big changes, that is for sure, but I know that you will do great-you always do!

Hey you, can I just tell you that song took me back, way back! OH memory lane is sometimes a joyous ride!

How is my "OK" girl doing? Are you adjusting to the flat land?

Miss you and wish we could have found time to hang out before you left!
