So lately I have been struggling with both of these issues. It seems that everything I want is a million miles away! I keep trying to find a program I want to get into for nursing and every time I think I have it figured out something happens. I am afraid to say that I think I finally have a plan because when that happens something tends to go wrong. So I am stuck in that thinking of I want it now and I want it the way I want it. :/
I didn’t even realize how negative I was being until a friend was telling me about a negative friend of theirs and how they wish that person would stop complaining. I did a quick recap of my own conversations with that person and realized that when he asked how I was I was either “tired” “bored” “sick of studying” “annoyed” and so on. I didn’t ask if he was talking about myself because I believe he is the kind of guy that would tell you things in a way to let you think and solve it for yourself which is great.
Later I got an email from another friend of mine that was truly touching. It was pictures of children and under each picture had a caption like.
- I know I shut my eyes tight when the sun comes up. Thank you, Lord, for I can see. Tare are many who are blind.
- I know I complain when there is construction noise and what not. Thank you, Lord, for I can hear. There are many who are deaf.
- I know I want to lie in bed all day and I am annoyed that I have to get up. Thank you,Lord, for I am able. There are some who are bed ridden.
I am not saying that it is not okay to be sad or even complain. In fact I think it is good to complain because it is not healthy to keep all of that bottled up. Just remember that in life there is always a rainbow after the rain.
The Lord has always looked out for me. When my plans fail or something happens it usually works out for the best in the end. So I am going to try and be more positive and remember that my day is only as good as I make it. The Lord has blessed me with so much and I am thankful for my family, my friends, my health and the health of my loved ones, for the chance to further my education in college (even though I don’t like going to class from 8 – 4 Mon-Fri)
This is the day the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24
The journey I have chosen will be difficult and time consuming and you know what? Life is not just about the end it is about the journey you take to reach that end. So I have got on my comfy shoes and I am ready to see what I will come across next :)

What happened to the world where if girls became pregnant before marriage they were sent to a special school?
What happened to the world where cussing and sex was not all over movies and TV shows?
What happened to the world were killing an unborn child was not an option?
This blog is going to be directed toward purity. I am not saying that years ago people did not sleep with each other before marriage but it was something that was hidden and only a small group of people actually did that sort of thing.
What does sex before marriage give us? Well for women it is more dangerous for getting disease (men can get them too women are just at a higher risk) Women end up being unmarried mothers. And for what? One night of pleasure?
Today we have several teens in high school that are mothers. These children are “babies” themselves they have no business raising a baby. As a friend of mine would call them they are “baby women”.
Parents I know it may be awkward to talk to your children but it is important to tell them that sex should be saved for marriage. They may think they are the only ones out there not doing it but in reality there are still a few of us who believe in abstinence. Plus, really who wants to be like everyone else? I didn't want to be an unwed mother, I did not want to get some kind of disease by sleeping around, I did not want to go to a party and find pictures of myself online doing who knows what. Just because everyone else may be doing something does not make it right. I wanted to be me, a girl who does not need to follow the crowd to “feel accepted” but who loves life exactly the way I live it.
To the world I am the crazy girl who has strict guidelines when dating (I will share them at the end) I am the girl who does not cuss, the girl who is old enough to drink but wont touch the junk and the girl who when I see a shirtless guy on the side of the road I will look away or yell “PUT A SHIRT ON!” Something my mother does as well.
To me though, most of the world, is a crazy world where people make a sport out of sleeping with each other, who thinks the only form of communication is foul, who thinks clothes are something that is basically not needed and thinks a good time is getting drunk and not remembering what you did the night before.
Stand for what is right even if you have to stand alone! Lets get back to the world where people actually care about themselves and others around them. Because if someone loves you they wont mind waiting till marriage to be with you.
Brittni's strict guidelines. If you don't respect yourself why should any guy you date? When I am in a relationship I will not allow the guy to put his hands all over my body. He can put his hands on my hip and shoulders. His hands will remain on the outside of my clothing and when we kiss I have my arm in front of my body.
This blog turned out to be a little longer then I planned (but trust me there is plenty more I could say about the topic) I do hope you enjoyed my blog and please comment or send me an email if you have any questions or comments.

Sorry I have not been updating my blog very much. I have been spending the last few weeks surviving finals and getting things together for the nursing program I am trying to get into. Sadly after packing my summer full of biology classes I am still not going to get everything I need in time. Sad but that is just how the cookie crumbles sometimes and things seem to happen for a reason. God has taken care of me this far and I believe He will continue to look out for me. I still have some options out there and I am still working towards getting the degree I want. This summer will be pretty hectic but hopefully I will still be able to update pictures for everyone. I hope you all like this picture of the lake. ^_^
