Goodbye Social Networks.

I’m going to be the missionary I’ve always wanted to be - meaning a locked heart, a receptive spirit, and a willing mind to focus my everything on my ultimate purpose as a missionary.
everyone keeps asking if I’m excited… I’m a mixture of things. excited on one end bc this is what I’ve always dreamed of as a young woman and now the day is finally approaching.
nervous bc I know a great change is coming in my life and I don’t really know what to expect or what will become of me.
but in general, happy because I know I’m making the right decision to serve the Lord for a period of 18 months.
goodbye!!!!

don’t take people for granted!

I honestly think one of the biggest mistakes people make is to take people in their life, meaningful people, in their life for granted.
moms not always going to be around to help you understand things you canโ€™t understand yourself, dads not always going to be around to cook for you and to constantly remind you to clean your room.
take time to take things in bc things wonโ€™t always be this way. when looking back it will only be but a moment in time. appreciate the here and now, the people that mean most to you. agh, time and people are so precious!

I want a relationship that doesnโ€™t die out after marriage.
I want to hold hands when we go to the store, sit together in church, and not only look happy but be happy ten even forty years down the line.
I want to emulate the type of relationship my children should yearn for so they know what to look for when dating.โ€จI want date nights at the temple, birthday parties, family get togethers, movie nights..

being in the temple this morning has made me realize just how important it is to find a worthy young man to someday take me to the temple.
it is such a beautiful, spiritual, sacred place.
better choose wisely, eternity is a very long time โ˜บ๏ธ

good guys โ˜บ๏ธ

I love when I see a good guy that reminds me of everything I deserve and should work after.
the ones that inspire you to live the gospel and be that light of hope in a restless world.
I love being reminded that these guys still exist; that they’re still out there in the crowd somewhere and that someday we’ll meet, somehow.. someway.

the journal I got for myself when I was falling head over heels lol 
in here I can express everything I feel without regret or question.. 
written in ink and sealed with thought, passion, and time.
I gave 2 conditions upon sending it. 
one being that I learn to fully trust him w/ all of my heart and two being if he breaks my heart. 
really hoping I send it under condition number one but hey anything can happen ๐Ÿ’•

creepy or cute? ๐Ÿ˜ณ

aunty and I were pulling in our bags to get a scan through one last time before exiting the aukland airport and this guy working there asks for my boarding pass.. (I thought it a bit strange but didnโ€™t question it and thought it to be procedure) I give it to him and he asks me if Iโ€™m from America, I go yes.. but my aunty is from here.
he checks my bags through and weโ€™re good to go but as I make the exit I see him constantly looking my way. I give a reassuring smile and then leave with my bags.
next thing I know he adds me on Facebook lol at first Iโ€™m like what the heck? how? and then I remembered he had asked for my boarding pass and gotten all the information he could ever need. what do you think ladies? smooth move or just creepy? lol
jokes.. heโ€™s a nice Samoan guy. just donโ€™t think iโ€™ll ever forget the way we met hahaha
