No Regrets :)

Well i was watching YOU AGAIN, if you haven't seen it i recomend it, but in it the mother was talking to the daughter and saying she didn't regret anything that she has done or has happened in her life because it is your experiences that make you who you are. So I started to think of the little things that I think made me who I am.
- Going to Junior High.. having to change to whole new group of friends. Because of this I learned that I am stronger then I think and I now have the MOST AMAZING friends. They are all so strong and I learn so much from each of them every day.
- Times where I may have faltered. You know the little mistakes you make throughout your life or even through out the day. Well it is amazes me how I have grown and learned so much from each one of my mistakes.
- Trials. Over the last couple years I feel like I have had my fair share of trials. But because of all the trials I have grown to see them as more of a gift from God. To me he is telling me that he knows I am strong enough to get through this and he is showing me that i am. He is also giving me the opportunity to grow even stronger.
- My sister, She is my role model. When I was little I always wanted to be just like her. I remember sharing a room with her and every night she would read her scriptures and say her prayers. I was only 8 or 9, but I watched her every night. Then after about a month of watching I joined her. Who knows when I would've started that habit if she hadn't been that example to me.  She has taught me so much!
- My family! Wow now that I am 18 and growing out of the "my parents know nothing" stage I have looked back and realized how much they actually did know. Most of the time when my mom and me would get in our huge fights it was because I was to stubborn to take a step back and know that I am wrong. But even after all those fights and all those times where I really didn't want to be with my family I have realized that I still love them so much! And that it was just a normal stage that every one goes through. So now when my teenage daughter tells me that I don't know what she is going through and never wants to hang out with me I will know that she still loves me. She is just working on gaining some independence. Now that I am actually trying to spend more time with my family I have realized that they are actually pretty amazing people. They have had so much of an effect in shaping me into the person I am today. And I am so grateful for them.
Well there is a lot more i am sure but those are just some main ones. :)
This is a song that reminds me of not regretting anything in your life. It is super cute! It is one of my top favorites. :)
THIS by 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

Look up the music video! It is super cute :)

isn't it crazy how your perspective changes. when you're going through the trial or you make the big mistake it seems life is over. but then looking back you realize how much you grow. That song says it perfectly. those are really cute lyrics. i'll have to look it up so i can hear what it sounds like.
