Life Decisions Revisited

Life is Hard. It takes Courage. And Sometimes, it requires taking a step into the darkness.

As you may know, I've been trying to decide what to do with my life; Where to go from here. And finally I feel I have made a good decision:

I'm moving back to Arizona.

BYU is a good school- It's just not for everyone. And I'm ok with that. :)

I'll be Living with my family, Working towards paying off Student Loans, & Applying to Different Schools- More specifically, the Music Therapy Program offered at ASU, and maybe the program at USU.

I'm hoping that I can re-balance my life.
I've seen a few glimpses of the woman I hope to be while I have been home these past few weeks- and I like it. I'm finding much needed hope and support. I'm learning to find Joy in the Journey.

I have much to do to be able to move back and get settled. And much more to do to figure out how this is all going to work out.... But I know that the Lord will help me through everything- and with His help, I can do this.

I'm going to miss all of my Utah Friends SO MUCH- but I know this is what I need to do. Things will work out.

For now, I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other.


"And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: 'Give me a 

light, that I may tread safely into the unknown.' And he replied: 'Go 

out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That 

shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way.' "



- Minnie Louise Haskins (1875-1957), "The Desert"

Yay- I'm happy that you're seeing glimpses of the woman you want to be. That's a very good sign. I hope that I will be able to figure out my next step in life soon also, so I can become the woman I want to be. I'm happy for you to go home to Arizona, but sad that you won't be around in Utah. I wish we had done more stuff together. You're totally awesome!
