Cram as much as you can into life

In the last 3 years it seems like I have had many new opportunities and learned so many new things. I have adapted to new places, and missed being home. It seems like whatever door I want opens and offers me wonderful experiences. Moving to Oklahoma is another chapter, another door. I have felt very strongly to pursue an interest of mine that I have always found reasons to NOT do. I find great joy in expressing myself with my hair. I love color, bleach, and change. I love self expression and the art form that is hair. Many might not know this but I look into cosmetology school about every year or so. I toured many schools in Phoenix, but it wasn't what I was meant to do in Phoenix. I found much happiness and learned a great deal working with Jester'Z Improv studio. But here in Oklahoma, I feel cosmetology school has finally caught up to me. I have no excuses. I am ready to explore that part of me that has been waiting patiently for the right time and place in my life.

I qualify for some fed grants and student loans. I am working on trying to find scholarships and more money to help me with school. It's not unreasonable. I have plenty of time to complete school and I want to have something that I enjoy that will be flexible with my medical needs. I will be able to create beauty and once I am done with school I will find plenty of time to do both things that I love (hair and acting)... and still have time for my horse :) One thing at a time though. Continually improving, continually living, continually dreaming. I have so much life to do all the things I have always wanted!

I start February 11th and it's a 9 month course. It will be a commitment, but it will be an adventure that may lead me on an even greater adventure. . .who knows!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
