Happy Holidays!

So Christmas came early this year. I am so full of…the only word I can think of is happy. Like if I smile for 2 more seconds I’ll be setting some kind of record, happy. I’ve kind of been wondering how to write this one for a while. Aaaaand I still don’t really know how so…I hope you were one of those weird kids in elementary school who liked “Chef’s Surprise’ day.

Here’s the thing: I’ve been worrying and worrying about what I’m going to do with my life. I love my major more and more every day, exercise is my passion and I adore the things I’ve been learning about over the years, but I don’t know how to put all of that into a career. Even if I did, I’ll never be very good at the whole ‘competitive business world’ thing. There’s always someone smarter, someone more professional, or someone who looks like less of a freak when they do Zumba. (For the record, if I had it my way, no one would have a job and we’d just barter with gum wrappers and other things I could find on the ground, but whatever.) I’ve been frustrated because I feel like the Lord keeps saying, “It doesn’t matter what you do. Just do good things.” Um, yeah but…WHAT DO I DO? I can’t put food on the table with smiles and “one free back massage” coupons.

EXCEPT. Good news. J I think I finally figured it out. A job will come eventually. I know how to work hard, I have the knowledge I need, and things have a way of working out. But at the end of the day, I’m not here just to get a fabulous job and make tons of money. (Although, if that’s a dibs thing…dibs.) I’m here to prove that I can live a life full of ‘good things’. Make life easier for the kid sitting next to me right now, because he needs me. Smile to remind him that life is a beautiful thing because then he'll smile back and I’ll remember it too. Be happy when I come home at the end of the day, even if I’m a little stressed. Cut it out with stupid Monday blues. Who has time for that anyways? Turn wherever I am into the happiest place in the world. The answer to my question is still, “It doesn’t matter what you do. Just do good things.” The difference is, now I know what that means! I just have to live my life. This is going to be so fun!

Like I said, this was basically just a “Kelli wants to tell you guys how happy she is so you can be too but she doesn’t really know how” session so…that’s pretty much it. I just figure, if the Lord’s still putting breath into these little lungs, I should probably make sure that every day I’m using it for something important. 

Love, Kelli

P.S. Sorry to you people who thought my blog was just going to be a couple of dorky one-liners every once in a while. Oopsie!

    Sorry, I saw your last line and couldn't help myself. :)
    Also, it's dumb that when you delete a comment because you accidentally misquoted a movie, using the word "had" instead of "have," that the whole world knows. Oh well. That's what happened, world.
