You can hear, but not listen.

Have you ever felt like life is out of control? And not in a good way? Some days can begin mundane, turn into something beautiful, and then end horribly. The only way to see this is that the Lord created that day for a reason. That boy broke up with you, or she won this, or your mother bought you that, or you cried because of something, it all happens for a reason. I truly believe it. Nothing in life is a coincidence. When I look back at the short life I've lived and think back to the moments where I let someone take advantage of me or where I lost friends, I've become a better person for it and learned from those experiences. I know more and can become a better me for it. It's not about morals or religious belief, heck you could be an agnostic, it doesn't matter, becoming a better YOU is essential to growth and the becoming of an adult. Age has nothing to do with being an adult, you could be 22 and not be an adult, you could be 45 and still not be an adult. Your actions is what makes you an adult. If you cannot grow as a person then how will your life ever change? If you make the same decisions, you'll get the same results. 
What's interesting is that, I go to church almost every Sunday and the homily(or sermon) is the same every time. (click to see a definition of homily/sermon) What I mean is that the sermon told on the 2nd week of lent in 2005 will be the same sermon told on the 2nd week of lent in 2006, 2007, 2008, etc. Of course not EVERY homily is the same but the important ones are usually repeated. Now the most interesting part of this is that, what the homily meant to me in 2005 will not mean the same thing to me in 2011. Because I grew and have experienced more and different things since then, my outlook on those stories and lessons are different. So although the priest's words are the same, the meaning is different. I can take something different every time because I'm not that same person. SO LONG STORY SHORT: Even when life feels out of control, that's EXACTLY how it's supposed to be at that moment of time. Don't try to avoid or stop it, embrace it and allow some space for growth.

you speak wise words! "nothing in life is a coincidence" is genuinely my mantra for when times get hard. we're all okay eventually and we are stronger for the experiences we've had.
anyway, you look beautiful as always, LOVE the shoes!
