Lilliana: HEY i want to be a genius when i grow up!!! ...but how do you be a genius?
Lilliana: Adults were once just little children....but now they're adults. (this came from nowhere XD)

DECEMBER IS UPON US// GOALS
-finish 7th gradeeee
-read 6 books
-figure out things that need figuring out
- and just live and be joyful. <3 <3
(my goals will probably expand over the next few days ;))
What I've learned:
I've been learning a lot about actually excepting yourself for who you are. Mindset & how it changes everything.
To do things scared. Be brave. Just to give my best at something no matter what.
Learning about some kinda cray stuff like Schizophrenia and such and personally I just think the world is kinda messed up....so many things are clearly spiritual and Doctors just give it a name and prescribe all sorts of pills. Which isn't right.
To fully trust God, His plan is greater then what we could have even imagined. <3
Learning a lot more about connection, how every human no matter how different wants to share a human connection, and how they do. Just lots of stuff. ;D
Your goals for December??? (I CANNOT BELIEVE IT IS RLY DECEMBER WAHTT EVEN????)
Do ya like the new blog design thingy?? =D
