SnowMan Haiku

I am a snowman
Looking for a snow-woman
Flakes are all I see

(Get it?! Like snowflakes!!! I'm so funny sometimes ;)

So today I went to Temple Square and watched the lights turn on for the first time. I've been there before during the Christmas season, seen the beautiful and intricate design, and went home feeling all festive and warm and fuzzy. But this year, for me, was different. I was there when they actually turned it on....I saw the red Christmas tree light up. I saw the glimmer of the red lights bouncing off the snow. I saw Christmas today. I saw my breath today. I felt coldness on my face. I saw preciousness. I saw the Gospel in it's fullness as Sister Missionaries were telling people about Christ's love for them. I saw a nativity and wanted to stare at it all night. I think about Last December...and honestly how much it hurt my heart. I didn't want this Christmas to come.
But tonight, it sparked something inside of me. Something peaceful. Something real. I want to feek like that all the time. And feel what I felt tonight. I want this to be the December I remember from now on.

XOXO, Lisha

Hurry up and wait

Okay so this is supposedly the time in my life when I'm supposed to be having all of the fun a person can have, and have all the opportunities a person could ever want. But I feel like I'm running in place. Like I'm getting nowhere fast. Like the world is saying "LISHA MOVE IT!" and I'm standing there looking like an idiot!
I know where I want to be, where I should be. I want to be there everyday. I want to be busy and motivated. I want to do a cartwheel. ( Just seeing if you were paying attention because I don't really want to do a cartwheel.) I really do love life and have a passionate spirit, which is probably why this month is going to go by so slow. Because I know 2011 is just waiting for me to jump in and go. It's waiting for me to give it my all! And I'll probably look back and realize how good I had it right now. Patience never was my strong suit. What else is there to do? So I'll just pray that I can have the courage to savor every moment that I'm going to miss at home. And I'll pray too that I can survive the wonderful college experience waiting for me :)

Love, Lisha

I love getting to know people that you automatically click with. People you know will be in your life for a long time. I love calling these people friends :) I love laughing. I love inside jokes. I love soup. And I love nights. They are so L*Chaz! (Holla ;) I love my home and my friends here, but there is something exciting about starting a new chapter, with new soulmates. New memories to have. New laughs to laugh, hugs to hug.
Sometimes I think back to the people that aren't in my life anymore, and realize how much better off I am. EVERYTHING happens for a reason. And at the time we may not know why something didn't go our way, but in the end we have so much more than we had at the beginning. This life is meant to be enjoyed! Not just endured, right? So surround yourself with the people that make you want to be a better version of yourself. Be around people who make you feel beautiful and gorgeous.
Be you. Because guess what? YOU is just what I need ;)

It's like This

It's like I'm invisible and opaque all at once.
It's like I'm breathing and drowning.
It's like I'm filled to the brim and starving...
For that hand to be in mine.
For those oasis' of blue that you call eyes to be staring at me.
For your chin to be on my shoulder when you hug
me close.
I can't get enough of your laugh. Or your
Or your voice.
Or your presence.
It's like I'm running and standing still.
It's like I'm in a pool of dry water.
It's like I can see you...
Seeing me.

xoxo, Lisha

So have you ever felt twitterpated? Like head over heels, stars in your eyes, only dreaming about this one person, everytime you see them you get butterflies, just wanna be around them all the time, twitterpated? Isn't it the craziest feeling? It's like you want to should from the rooftops "I'M IN SEVER LIKE WITH YOU!!!" But at the same time you want to hide under a sheet because if they knew that you liked them....
What? What would happen? I mean the worst probably is that they say "I just want to be friends". And what's so wrong with that? Probably nothing. Probably Everything.
Liking someone in a romantic way and not having those feelings returned can be devastating. Humilating. Sad. Pathetic. A tragedy.
But honestly, wouldn't you rather have someone tell you right away that those feelings aren't returned? I've sad it before, but I'd rather be hurt for a minute with the truth than forever with your lies.
SO...say what you feel! Live what you say! Dance your heart out! Sing like you mean it! AND Love, like your heart will never break :)

Life is like a peach.
A juicy, mouth watering,
I love you so much I wanna marry you and
have peach Lisha babies Peach.
The kind you never want to end.
The kind you want to share with your mom
because you want to spread the joy.
The kind you don't care if it's messy...
The big kind.
The kind that you look at it, and think
"wow. I can't believe someone made this for me".
Life's like that.
