I Choose Happy

Friday, October 18, 2013

When so much of the world is focused on negativity I think it is important to focus on what makes up happy every once in a while. Here is my list lately.
  • I am in the groove with my school work and I am successfully handling 17 credits with all A's. Assuming everything goes as plan I will graduate with my BS in July!
  • I am healthy! Between Ventricular Tachycardia heart issues and endometriosis I had been feeling awful for pretty much all of the past 2 years. After lots of different medications, surgery, and physical therapy I am happy to say I feel great 95% of the time and it feels amazing! This is especially a big blessing because our insurance is changing at the end of the year and I won't have access to as many resources for the amazing price that I did this past year. 
  • After all the craziness with our apartment we found a new place to move into at the last minute. Due to zoning violations that our landlords were breaking (that we weren't aware of obviously) the city gave us just a couple weeks to move out. We are so excited for our new place. Hello 2 bedrooms!!
  • Last night I got to meet up with some super awesome ladies and grab dinner. Every once in a while you just need some quiet time to chat with your lady friends and it was exactly what I needed. I came home feeling recharged and ready to tackle life. 
  • I finally am a licensed master esthetician in the state of Utah. After 1200 hours in school, way too many hours studying, 3 attempts at the state written exam, and 3 attempts at the practical state exam I am officially passed and licensed.
