As I was driving to Phx today I realized something. and it will seem like rambling but I think it is an important ramble. I have always thought of Arizona and dry and ugly. the only thing here is dirt and plants that are mean. But while driving here this evening and I realized that Arizona is not ugly it is just a different kind of beautiful. for example this is what I call beautiful................
and this is what I came to see as a different kind of beautiful.
So I applyed it to life and came to realize that the same kind logic works in real life as well. for instance just because I think this is pretty
Does not mean that this is not pretty as well.....
So I came to realize that to only thing that makes you beauty is what is inside ( I know cheesy but true) and the only way to be beautiful is to be indifferent to what people think and be who you are. The waterfall in the wilderness and the sunset in Arizona dont care if people stop and look at it or if they think they are beautiful the waterfall still runs and the sun still sets. So one of my new goals is to stop being a human and start being that sunset that shins for everyone to see no matter if they like what they see or not.

SO the 4th of July just past and I realized something. people in this country are patriotic one day a year and that to me is very sad. I am not saying I am not guilty of the same thing but I from now on will be making a conscious effort to show my love for this country all the time day in and day out. I am 100% American. When people ask me are you irish the answer will be no I am American through and through. Now I do not at all agree with what our current federal government is doing or who our leader is but I know that it is because of this country I am allowed to disagree with our elected officials. We live in a country where I as a woman can where what I want go where I want say what I want look like what I want and believe what I want. These freedoms of mine I know are rare and did not come cheaply. I thank all of those who have served, I am in debt to all of those who have died and I will always be in awe of all of those who give up everything for people they don't know and will more than likely never meet. To join an armed force is not for the money they don't make much and it's not just to blow things up (ok not only to blow things up) it is to dedicate years of your life if not your whole life to a selfless act. So next time you see a man or woman in uniform swallow your pride and thank them because you never know what they might have given up for you to be here. Or when you see a veteran tell them how much we aprichate all that they went through for us to have our Ipods, cell phoes, and computers today. There is no way we can repay them but the lest we could do is support and show our gratitude.

I spent a few days a while ago being sad and mad and just hating the world and I didn't really have a reason. Well one night while looking on facebook I realized that a lot of people complain a lot. I will admit I am one of those people as well. It was at that moment when I decided to try to always be in an upbeat mood. I admit that I have to fight sometimes to see the positive side in things but there is usually a good side to everything. In giving myself this challenge I have noticed that I am a happier person and am not just putting on a show. I am truly in a better mood. Things don't bother me as much and I become more tolerant of people. I have come to realize that attitude really is everything. Life is all about your mind set. So don't let the mean people get to you and when they do call on me and I will do my best to spread my happiness on to everyone I can. Life sucks, so let it suck out the poison.
Alright so as I kind of stated in my about me section this blog will mostly be my thoughts and opinions. All the randomness that pops into my head will go in here. here is the warning. I have opinions and and very strong in those opinions. I will write them on here and many will be political. if you don't wanna read it don't but don't expect me to not write it. If you feel the need to comment on one please do and I will probably respond with my radical ideas. Anyway enough of the serious stuff welcome to min's world. Enjoy reading and I hope to hear from you.
