someday, somewhere..

"Girls, Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy."

— Gordon B. Hinckley

someday i will meet a boy that meets this description, BUT until then i'm finding joy in the journey and enjoying finding myself and realizing how independent i really can be . i am also learning how to be [comfortable by being un-comfortable] -- my new quote right now because job searching is not the most comfortable thing. i printed off twenty copies of my resumes. i will print more off if i have to. i'm not giving up and will find a job if it's the last thing i do. it makes me so happy that i've provided for myself all along, i can do hard things with the lord. i love this quote by pres. hinckley. .he's out there.. somewhere..

You're still that young! I've been 21 when I got my first boyfriend ever. It hadn't ever worked out before so I had to wait that "long". I know that someday it'll work out for you, too!
