Farewell, Merry Followers!  I don't like to say it, but I'm going to stop blogging (and following blogs).  Why?  Well, to be quite honest, I spend too much time online.  And, it's not as if I've been a very faithful blogger anyway!  However, I want to thank all of your for taking an interest in my blog. :D Who knows, we might bump into each other in the future once I learn to manage my time better.  But until then, farewell!

p.s. 1 Corinthians 10:31

There's a difference between feeling good and actually being good.  
One involves following feelings while the other chases righteousness.
One is satisfied in the moment while the other often doesn't feel good at the time.
One is empty in the long run.  The other.....satisfying.
Doesn't that sound good? 
What if we did the right thing even if it didn't feel nice?  Chose not to just live in the moment? 
On our own, we can't.  
But we know someone who can help us. We just have to ask Him.  
So, really, there's nothing holding us back.

Goodbye Hair....

Yup, I did the unthinkable.  I cut my own hair.  Ok, maybe I am over dramatizing considering that it was more like a trim.  Still, though, that was a big step in my hair history!  Believe or not, (for those of you who know my mum) she actually put me up to it.  Below, are pictures of the event. :D

My lion's mane... :D
Haha....I look sooo confident... :D
Wow...what a scary moment...

My butchered hair looked so innocent on the floor.  I actually felt bad!


After :D 

See, so I thankfully didn't mess up my hair!  What do you guys think?  Anyway, if anyone needs a haircut, feel free to come over and let me do it!

Post worth sharing!

The Death of Pretty.  Thought provoking title, huh?  That's the name of a post I think is worth sharing.  Let me just say, you all have got to read this!  It is encouraging and eye opening.  Definitely worth your next five minutes. 

Girls, choose to be pretty.  Guys, choose to pursue pretty girls.  (Those last two sentences won't make sense unless you read the go read it!)

If all music was like this.....

  If all music was like what I'm about to share with you, let's just say that I would be in a state of constant beautiful thoughtfulness.  It's simply gorgeous!  These songs speak to me.  I feel like I can connect with them.  Considering how much I enjoy them, I wanted to share them with you and let you get a little glimpse of my style and, as such, who I am.  Number one is definitely my favorite!

Bella's Music 

1.  Time- Hans Zimmer

2. Awake- Jane Eyre

3. Deux Arabesque- Debussy 

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

For Shame!

Oh yes, I'm posting another poem. :D  I really like this poem, too. :D  If you take anything from it, I hope that it encourages you to never to give up doing something just because its hard and to always push on despite difficulty.  So, without further ado, I present "For Shame!":

 "For Shame!"

For Shame! to those who said they couldn't,
And wouldn't even try,
Who thought since they would be defeated,
it wasn't worth their time.

For Shame! to those who said they would,
And never lived up to their word,
Who backed off when the way was hard,
And chose never to return.

Noteworthy quote #1 (of many to follow.... :D)

 Merry followers!  I am late!  Very late on posting!  Thank you for sticking with me despite that.  Right now, I'm in Utah visiting/helping my Grandparents.  (More on that later, though.....)  Today, I wanted to share with you something that I found.  A couple of monthes ago, I was at my Grandma's house (I've been visiting her a lot) flipping through one of her many magazines and came across a wonderful quote.  It was inspiring.  After I read it, I voted it as one of my favorite quotes!  Hence, I want to share it with you all.  Let me know what you think :D   

“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
– from Mother Teresa’s wall
