“Count blessings not calories”

Ever since i was little i’ve been taught that all the decisions you make will have an impact on your future, and now that i’m older and more grown up, almost an adult (as in not being in college and paying my own phone bill), it seems like the decisions i’m taking now are going to have a bigger impact on the future. They hold a bigger weight than they used to. 

Of my closest girlfriends, there’s a few who are already married and even having babies (which to me is still shocking because despite growing up lds i still can’t understand why people get married and start families so young, and i almost did!), I look at their lives and wonder if that’s what i want. 
Don’t get me wrong. I want to have a couple kids and a hot (at least to me) husband, take tacky holiday pictures and pinterest the crap out of their birthday parties, but do i want that so soon? I look at them and they’re happy, I know they are, with the choices they’ve made. One of them, she tells me that she knows that she was born to be a stay at home mom, that it’s where she’s found herself to be happiest. 

But that’s never where I’ve pictured myself. I want to finish my degree and work a lot and earn money so i can travel a lot and see the world and have really great adventures and work some more, hopefully draw letters and typefaces for a living and evern more hopefully, have someone there by my side, who’s willing to go to new places and maybe not stay in one place for too long. I love what I’m studying so much that i just can’t even think about ever leaving it behind. Being a mom sounds great and beautiful, but there’s so much more to being a (ass-kicking) woman than that. 

I want great stories to tell my grandchildren (and all the pseudo-nephews and nieces i’ve been getting recently!) and that’s not going to happen if I stay at home, looking after kids and waiting for my husband (i know that’s not the only thing what mothers do). I want my kids to travel, see the world, have their eyes open to different experiences and life stories. 

I’m not sure what type of decisions i have to take right now to make that happen. But if you ask me where I see myself in ten years (shit i’ll be 32), i’d like to be traveling around the world, on top of an elephant, creating words and pictures and pictures of words, visiting my mom from time to time, kicking ass in the design scene, maybe famous.

I want my choices to take me there.

Finally a relaxed Sunday, great morning at church, no work for school, catching up on my favorite blogs and generally feeling good about life. My favorite kind of day.

“Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.”

– Juno, a classic. (via thingsthatmakemehappier)
