"The Real To-Do List"

1. Sing.
2. Smile at strangers.
3. Keep Learning.
4. Notice Kindness.
5. Eat ice cream.
6. Hope.
7. Count your blessings.
8. Laugh.
9. Love.
10. Love some more.

This is a plaque I have in my room that I got from a friend right before my first year of college started. I haven't really read it in a while and I think it was the perfect time to look at it...
There are those days when I think things just couldn't get any worse....But then I finally snap out of it and realize how truly blessed I am in my life.

I have an amazing family. I seriously couldn't ask for a better one.
They love and care for me and I know that I can always turn to them. We always have so much fun when we are all together! What a blessing it is to have such a great relationship with my family. I love them so much!

Then I have great friends; I've met so many amazing people out here at BYU and friends I've known for years. They strengthen me and help me in my daily life. I know that without them, I wouldn't be the person I am today.

I feel so blessed that I am at BYU. It is such a great school; I worked so hard in highschool to get here and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be at this campus. It is amazing... hard, but amazing.
I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I don't know where I'd be in my life without this gospel! I feel so lucky- we have amazing leaders and have great guidelines. I am so happy to be a part of this church; I feel like I recieve so many blessings every day that I should recognize a little bit more.
This list could go on and on. I have so much to be grateful for and I need to appreciate it all a lot more.
So when life puts you down, just think of "The Real To-Do List". I know everyone says this but life is too short- so instead of spending it being unhappy or complaining about how things didnt go like you planned, realize all the great things that are out there and that things happen for a reason. Don't sweat the small stuff... be happy...

Thats my two cents for the night. It's something I needed to think about and I figured I'd share it with you.

First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

Presumably the magazine doesn't do works with each source it reproduces, just how does copyright law permit them to re-print editorial content that they don't own without having to pay
royalties?.. Also, can this law be applied internationally?

I do agree with all of the concepts you have introduced to your post.
They are very convincing and can definitely work.

Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices.
Could you please prolong them a little from next time?
Thank you for the post.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about,
why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when
you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

He's running into a ferocious fight to block his ATF nomination. Jones' critics complain that he has [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-New-York-Mets-5-David-Wright-Red-Jerseys-9/]2009 All Star New York Mets 5 David Wright Red Jerseys[/url] ties to Operation Fast and Furious, [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Mets-5-Wright-Black-2011-All-Star-Jerseys-98/]Mets 5 Wright Black 2011 All Star Jerseys[/url] the notorious gun-trafficking investigation that allowed hundreds of firearms to be funneled illegally into Mexico. Fast and Furious is a genuine outrage: Many [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Texas-Rangers-32-Josh-Hamilton-Blue-Jerseys-15/]2009 All Star Texas Rangers 32 Josh Hamilton Blue Jerseys[/url] of the smuggled guns disappeared into the hands of criminals and were later used in violent crimes, including a shootout that cost the life of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

Jones succeeded ATF acting Director Kenneth Melson, who left under [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-San-Diego-Padres-23-Gonzalez-Red-Jerseys-10/]2009 All Star San Diego Padres 23 Gonzalez Red Jerseys[/url] the cloud of Fast and Furious. Jones did not oversee the operation as it turned into disaster, but he is accused of protecting ATF employees who were involved in Fast and Furious, discouraging agency whistle-blowers and advising Attorney General Eric Holder, who has resisted efforts by Congress to fully investigate the scandal.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said the appointment of Jones is a "slap in the face" to victims of Fast and Furious.

Is it? Can the Senate conduct a fair hearing and vote on the nomination that rises or falls on the actual merits of the nominee?

The resistance to every candidate selected to head ATF [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-2-Jeter-Red-2011-All-Star-Jerseys-102/]Yankees 2 Jeter Red 2011 All Star Jerseys[/url] calls that fairness into question. But here is a chance to give Jones an honest, public evaluation and a chance for a full airing of what happened in and around Fast and Furious.

Absent, excuse us, a smoking gun, Jones appears to be a strong candidate for the job. He is given credit for his work as top federal prosecutor in Minnesota, including the aggressive prosecution of firearms crimes.

The worst thing the Senate can do is stall. Give Jones a fair hearing and call the vote. If discussing the cases for and against Jones leads to a fuller discussion of Fast and Furious, so much the better.
