Well, many things have happened as of late that have been life changing. I recently lost my job which I had for 3 1/2 years. I loved working for Telos and I am very grateful for the experience. I certainly took that job for granted and especially the money for granted. I made some good money there. I am now on the search for a new job and I am hoping to find one that will allow me to focus more on school. I recognize that I will most likely sacrifice money, but I need to be able to focus on my school work. Speaking of school, much has changed in that department as well. I am now back to my original plan. I am going to dental school and I am going to be an orthodontist. I am very excited and I feel this is the way that I need to be going. Also, I have made some new friends and I have rid myself of old ones that were not good influences in my life. I needed this fresh start. So, as I sit here I am reminded that I have so much. At times it is interesting to sit and look at where your life is and how you got there. I was so caught up in my life and all the worries. It is nice to have some time to think again and just remember what is most important. My family. My friends. My future. Being happy. Being clean. I am now refocused on the temple. I am excited to get back into a normal routine of attendance. I have missed the temple a great deal. It has left quite the void in my life and I want to fill it again. I suppose this is not going to be much of an inspiring entry, but it is for me. Looking back to where I was a few months ago, I have improved a great deal. I was not sure that I was going to live til tomorrow back when. Today I look forward to tomorrow and can look back on today with a smile. I am grateful for the gospel in my life. I am not yet where I want to be, but I am on my way. I am excited just to be on my way. I guess you can say I am enjoying the journey on the path back. I am not perfect, but I am able to forgive myself. I am getting better every day. I am back to being me again. I am looking to help others again. I am looking to be a support and a light in the lives of others. It's good to be me again. Slowly I am transforming and changing into the man I am supposed to become. It is basic, but it is crucial. Thanks to all of you who have helped me. Adam, Sonny, Victoria, Blake, Chris, Aimmie, Dad, Mom, Kaylese, Derek, Bishop, Chelsea, and everyone else, thank you. I love you all very, very much.
