THIS IS AWESOME ha! ^^^^^^ also . . . 


Yesterday I went to a wedding. 

This was my friend Lauren's second marriage. I'd never met the guy before, but from the brief chit-chat I had during my visit, he treats her like gold and is LOADED! So . . . Lauren FTW! One for conquering divorce and two, for showing me that there are people out there in the world, that are just right for you. 




In between the times I was coerced to do the "Makarina" and "The cupid shuffle", (okay who am I kidding, I love "The cupid shuffle") I pulled Lauren aside and asked her for some advice one divorcee to another. She told me something that probably sounds like common sense to all of you, but to me really hit home. "Work on your self first, and then move onto a relationship"

The pain a person feels after a serious breakup is probably universally the same, and It's incredibly hard. It consumes you / its an actual physical hurt. For me it was so bad that I chose to replace that consumption with anything, literally anything that would distract me from what I was feeling and experiencing. I made sure I had dates lined up everyday. I started making rap videos, starting new businesses, I flew around the united states for no reason, and of course came up with genius ideas like the Amuze Cruze #sarcasm. All of these things did a great job of distracting me from the issues at hand, but did not make them go away. 

Its like I got a deep and painful cut on my arm and immediately I wrapped it in medical gauze to "take care of it". The gauze got old and bloody so I took more gauze and wrapped it on top of itself. Pretty soon I have so much gauze on my arm its really hard to function normally, and the actual cut has probably gotten worse and infected. Instead, what the cut needed was to be a cut. A little bandaging here and there, but really constant cleaning and air would have helped the cut heal naturally, and ironically faster. It may be the more painful way to heal but in the end its easier moving forward. 

This past week I met with my bishop and he asked me who Christ was to me. I gave him the
typical cliche answers but right now I see Christ as the Neosporin. Neosporin helps soothe the immediate pain along with protect any outside influences from distracting the natural process of healing. Christ has truly felt every ounce of pain we have felt. He is the only living person who has complete empathy for anything we are going through. And has the power to expedite and support the healing of pain at any degree. He truly is our Savior, but we have to choose to incorporate Him into that process. 

I've said it before and I've said it again. The main focus of my blog is to help prevent people from making the same mistakes I have and to hopefully bring people closer to Christ. Whether you relate to my abusive childhood, my rebellious youth, my divorce, or you just liking my raps, in the end I hope you leave here knowing that God loves you and wants nothing more than help you in anyway possible. Sometimes we go through crazy pain so we can learn, but also to appreciate the beauty life has to offer. 


FYI Mason and I are doing great. I'm also going to test his blood because I'm pretty sure he's half deer. (He's getting so big!)

I was asked by a good friend of mine to pretend to be her husband for a day.

She also asked me to give some of my thoughts on what a "Good Husband" really is.
