"This"

Hey everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week! Just one more work day this week!  I know that I have been feeling especially stressed lately, and during times like that, it's hard for me to put things in perspective.  When things  seem be going wrong, it's important to remember that everything happens for a reason.  I am a firm believer in that philosophy, and though it is sometimes hard to remember... it is so very true!  Darius Rucker has a great song that depicts how little inconveniences and hardships can be the most rewarding...as they can lead to the most precious gifts life has to offer.

This- Darius Rucker

"Got a baby girl sleepin' in my bedroom
And her momma laughing in my arms
There's the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game's about to start
I don't really know how I got here
But I'm so glad that I did
And it's crazy to think that one little thing 
Could have changed all of it
Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
Maybe thats why I'm such, such a lucky man

For every stoplight I didn't make 
Every chance I did or I didn't take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn't know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or the college I wanted to go to
Till I got that letter
All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I'd never get through
And the moment I almost gave up
All led me here to you

I didn't understand it way back when
But sittin' here right now
It all makes perfect sense

Every stoplight I didnt make 
Every chance I did or I didnt take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn't know
Thank god for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this


Oh I cried when my momma passed away
And now I got an angel
Looking out for me today
So nothing's a mistake

Every stoplight I didn't make
Every chance I did or I didn't take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
Everything I knew but I didn't know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

Led me here to this"




No matter what life has to throw at us, we can get through it.  It will always lead to something else... something more... something you wouldn't have if you hadn't gone through it...maybe something better!  It is always worth it because in going through these things, we always learn from them.  


Day 12: Think about a time when you were going through something difficult, and wondered what was the point?!  What was the point?  Did you learn something, or gain something?  I know I did!  I remember going through a really hard time in high school, and if I hadn't, I probably wouldn't have gone to the college I did, wouldn't have done gymnastics in college, and wouldn't have some of my absolute best friends.  Thanks, God... even though I questioned it at the time!  I know it was all worth it in the long run!

One of the hardest things I've ever gone through, 2 ACL reconstructions. Kept me out of gymnastics for 2 years.  I felt cheated out of something I really loved, so I worked hard enough to do gymnastics in college.



My UW-Whitewater sisters... thank God for those injuries, because who knows if I would have met these amazing, wonderful, inspiring people.  My best friends, my soul mates!












I even got to be a part of a Conference Championship Team- another dream come true!  All of my teammates and coaches have been gifts... complete blessings to my life that I can't imagine living without!  I love you all!
