The Parentals.

Day 4 kids! And so far I'm 4 for 4! (I also just made you say 4 three times!) Anywhoo, It's the day I get to talk about my parental units. Their names are Gary and Janie Jensen. And they are wonderful. They have been married 8 years and it's so crazy to me that it's been that long. But I when I think about it, I was 12 years old when they got hitched! I've grown up a lot since then....and they've been there the whole time. I know I can go to them about anything and they will be there to listen. We're not perfect by any means. We're a family. There is arguing and disagreements, but at the end of the day we're there for each other. And that is pretty special :)

Day 3

So Day 3 is called "Your first Love" And that can be really scary to talk about with the world....or your Facebook Friends. ;) But Here we go.

My First love. Definitely would be Diet Coke. Or pie. Or Mickey Mouse. Scratch that! It's Prince Charming from Cinderella. He was perfect! He even returned her shoe at the end. If that's not true love, I don't know what is. ;)

Okay in all seriousness, I'm not sure what constitutes as a person's first love. Because I could talk about the person I had a crush for what seemed like forever before he noticed me. Or the guy I thought loved me back, but not really...

I know what I'll do. I'll talk about the man that is mine right this very minute :) He's my best friend that I can tell everything to. And he has the most wonderful blue eyes I've ever seen. And when he said he loved me for the first time, it was the most amazing feeling in the world. :) Yeah. That's my first love.

Okay folks it's day 2! So far my blog challenge is going so well :) Okay well today is the meaning behind my blog name, which is
It's actually a nickname I had in junior high. Everyone (well almost everyone) since I can remember has called me Lish. My mom and basically my second mother, Kate, have called me Lish-ba-gish since I was a baby. So, Lish, just kind of stuck. In Junior high my friend Mauri, Kailee, and Candace, I believe, (It was so long ago!!) were talking about nicknames and how sometimes the actual nickname was longer than the person's name. So they thought it was super funny to add to the nickname that I already had. So it turned out to be LishKishBish.

There ya go hahaha. Sorry it's not more interesting ;)

With her permission.

So With the permission of my beautiful and talented cousin, I am able to let you in on a little secret. She writes beautiful poetry. And I came upon this poem of hers the other day.

Right Here, Right Now

Here I am.
Here I stand.
Right here, right now.

I do not know where I’ll be
In two weeks or even in two years.
But I am here.
Right here, right now.

I cant live in the future,
I cant live in the past,
I live in this moment.
Come awhile and stay with me.
--Charlotta Leung-Wo

Something about this just stayed with me. I want that. And I'm living that right now. My life is one big question mark. But sometimes right now, I just need that time.
That time to breathe and say "I'm okay." So thank you Charlotta. It was just what I needed.

No idea.

I often tell myself I will go to bed at a decent hour. I do all of the necessary "get ready for bed" things. I put jams on. I brush the teeths. I get underneath my warm covers. And I lay here. (where I am right now in fact) and pull out the lappy. I understand that maybe it isn't the best "go to sleep" motivator, but it helps me unwind. So then I do. I start to unwind. I think about the things that I have to do the upcoming week. Then I get stressed because I know that there aren't enough hours in a day to accomplish all that I need to.

And then it comes.

Thoughts about what am I doing with my life. And honest to goodness I have no idea. I wish I did. I wish I had a step by step plan of what I'm doing with the rest of my life. But so far I have none. I think about where I want to be in 5 years. Or 10. All I can think is that I want to be happy. Maybe with a someone. Maybe not. I want to travel. I want to eat food that I never thought could be so delicious. I want to see things in person that I've only seen in movies. I want to breathe the air that I've only day dreamed of.

*I am aware how cheesy this sounds*

But it's true. I want to live my life in such a way that when I am telling my babies about all the adventures I had they say "I want to do that too."
I know it will happen.
I just have no idea when.

xoxo, Lisha
