is a phrase that I have found to be quite useful as I navigate this journey of life. I am certainly not suggesting that we avoid making any promises, but only that we make sure we don’t get people’s hopes up when we cannot back up our commitments with 100% surety (myth vs. experience). Additionally, we needn’t “run faster than [we] have strength” (Mosiah 4:27) in trying to keep promises we perhaps should not have made in the first place. Now, don’t be calling me lazy! As I have said before, I desire to serve others, get out of my comfort zone, and work hard. Still though, I cannot do it all. Neither can you. Neither can any one person (and that’s okay, ya’ll!) So we must decide what kinds of things are worth the word “promise” (or at least the level of commitment that it implies). But when we do make those promises, let’s make them count!

“I never make a promise I don’t intend to keep.”
~John Michael Montgomery
1) What promises have you made (or will make) that are important to keep (family, covenants, relationships, employment, etc.)?
2) What are some aspects of your life about which you should probably not make promises?
And now, one final question:
Is this blog the best thing in the world?
Is bragging about your blog.
I try hard not to do that, but no promises. I am only human after all:
Oh and speaking of, Brandon Flowers IS Mormon. Check it out!
And just back to blagging for one second, yes I have earned money, yes, I do have readers in 34 countries, yes I have made friends and helped others’ network as well, yes I have been able to email people in Alaska about the Book of Mormon, yes I have people contacting me about product reviews, and yes I am happy. But I digress…
I’ll drink to that (my glass is empty so fill it up with something…non-alcoholic please!) AND make a toast to my readers! Thank you so, so, SO much. And believe it or not, I still have lots to write about. Live your own lives and tell your own experiences, of course, but still mosey on over when you can, okay?

Oh, and I copied Rihanna’s look once upon a time, remember?
P.S. All those numbers add up to just over 5,000. I promise. And no, I didn’t add them myself. And no I didn’t keep clicking my stats button waiting to get to that magic landmark. 🙂
True story. Probz should have actually cleaned myself up a little, huh? Oh well. Ya’ll know I’m beautiful, even if not everyday. But I digress. This kid Oba is the real deal.
And boy can break it DOWN!
This stuff is good enough to be on the radio. Too good. Puts Chris Brown and Jason DeRulo to shame. This song is another literary gem, teachers. Can you believe this kid is giving up music for 2 years to go on an LDS mission? Now THAT’S dedication. You know homeboy will be winning Grammys in no time when he gets back. Oba if you ask really nice, I GUESS I’ll be your date although it’s such a terrible bother to get a pretty dress and have your makeup and hair all done up and stuff….. 🙂
And he liked some of my Natasha mash-up ideas. DON’T HATE THAT!
#those drinks are “Arizona” brand, but they’re not tea! Promise!
#Shaq is doing this now I guess…
