15 Lessons To Keep In Mind:

The Pursuit of Happiness (:

1. The only person that can ever truly make you happy is yourself, stop depending on everyone else.

2. People Lie, stuff happens.  Don't take it too personally.

3. Want people to think you're amazing? Start believing you are, and then they will too.

4. Smiling is the ultimate anti-depressant.  Smile and laugh out loud, it doesn't look stupid. I promise.

5. The world is never just black and white, right or wrong, one way or another. Try and see things from as many points of views as possible.

6. "Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror
Just keep going because no feeling is final"
-Rainer Maria Rilke

7. Have empathy.

8. Gossip, problems of the past, events you cannot control, negative thoughts and negative people; time spent on these is time poorly wasted.

9.  When you're jealous or find yourself filled with hate for someone or something, stop.  The only person it's hurting is you.

10. Although the newest, most expensive material things may make you feel as if you're a better person, they won't hold you at night or listen to you when you need it.  Make sure your priorities make sense.

11. Step outside your comfort zone, it's when you'll really feel alive.

12. Don't be afraid to be yourself, the people who really matter, don't mind.

13. Let your emotions out sometimes, humans have them for a reason.

14. Celebrate the things you have, think only positively of the things you don't (but would like to have) and they will come too.

15. Love unconditionally.

Day 6, what makes you laugh???


seriously there is NEVER a dull moment with these two!! 

Footprints in the Sand..

One night I dreamed I was walking
along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed
across the sky. In each scene I
noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of
footprints, other times there was one
only. This bothered me because I 
noticed that during the low periods of
my life, when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints,
so I said to the Lord,
"you promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk
with me always. But I have noticed
that during the most trying periods of
my life there has only been one set of
footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have 
you not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"the years when you have seen only
one set of footprints,
my child, is when I carried you."

day three...mommy and daddy(:

My mom and dad are the most important people in my life.  I love them both so much.

My mommy is so beautiful! 
I love her extremely straight, white teeth and brown eyes and her countless freckles.  
She has the best features! 
My mom is my best friend(: 
I tell her everything, we could talk for hours. 
I love to tell her about my day, new or old boys in my life, drama with friends, good times with friends, an embarrassing thing that happened that day. 
You name it, we talk about it. 
She is an excellent listener and teacher and always knows the right things to say. 
We really are the best of friends and are so insanely close! I love it so much! 
She is so strong-nothing could stop her from always being in tune with the spirit.
She is confident.
She is fearless. 
She is extremely forgiving.
She is caring-always putting others before herself.
She is generous-she's always there for me.
She is always kind-she has such a big heart. 
She is honest.
Everybody likes her. 
She is the biggest role model in my life. 
She knows who she is and what she believes, she has such a strong testimony.
I only strive to be more like her.  
This is definitely not just rambling, I could brag about her for hours. 
I love my mom more than anything else in this world.

  Aren't they just adorable???? (:

My daddy is such a remarkable man.
I have so much in common with him, we have the funniest jokes!
He is quite the character.
Everyone is always scared of him because of his gun(:
He is in the military and is very committed to this country.
He loves America.
He is also very committed to his work, he is the greatest.
It's amazing how much he'll work so our family can live better lives.
I only see him on weekends, but the hugs I get when he comes home are the absolutely best!
I love that when he sees me he instantly puts on a smile.
He is so bold, and I know he would take a bullet for me.
He is so strong in the church.
He is handsome. 
He is sooo funny.
and he loves to      laugh at me(:
and I love to make him laugh.
Most of my childhood memories lead back to things the two of us did.
I am his YOTY. (don't even worry about it, we understand)
I love my dad so much! 

And those are my amazing parents(: I LOVE THEM! (and I'm of course their favorite)

day two....something you crave a lot..(:

I crave SO much all the would think I was a prego with all the random craves I have! but these are the ones that are ALWAYS on my mind...aaaallllwwwwaaaayyyssss..

just thinking about it warms me up. even in the middle of the summer, out in the sun...this is my first choice(:
(preferably Stephen's Roasted Hazelnut or Belgium Dark Chocolate) 


I just love kisses. 
they are just...HEARTWARMING!

I'm almost positive those are Krispy Kreme's..I'm a regular(:
Donuts are just way too good!
Almost everyday of my life:
Mom: "what did you have for lunch?"
Karleen: "donuts." 

 I just think this picture is adorable..I'm not quite that extreme though..
and those freakishly delicious E.L. Fudge sandwhich cookies!
I like them better when they're double stuffed...buuut I'll eat the regulars.
Cookies with creme/fudge are just SOOO GOOD! 
and addicting...(: 
calories: like 70 per cookie..
and how many do I eat in an hour?..ohhh perhaps the whole package..
maybe I shouldn't keep this up...I'll be a FATTY.

Dove: Dark Chocolate
emphasis on the DARK. mmm(:
it's just so cravable. there is nothing to hate about these!
a package comes with just enough to satisfy me, but not too much to tempt me(: 
notice how they're all SUGAR...? 

(except the kisses of course, they could be sugary sweet I suppose)
yeeeahhh......I'll probably die next year.
