Everyone needs an outlet. I tend to have issues talking about my struggles. I usually just wait for the storm to pass and don't really tell anyone what's going on. That's one reason why I have embraces that art of running. As I run, I picture myself running away from all the stress. Running gives me time to solely focus on nothing but breathing and forcing myself to go one more mile. Coming home from a mission has been one of the hardest things I've ever done. As I've gone through this semester I've realized that I've been giving everything 80%. That's not me. Time to step it up and give it my all. My roommates deserve more spontaneous adventures. My school work deserves a little more focused attention. My temple attendance deserves a whole lot less falling asleep. My heavenly father deserves a whole lot more meaning prayers and study time. My family deserves a few more reminders that I love them. Time to regroup and get back to work! I'm ready to give the rest of the semester my all.

New Start

I'm starting fresh. I want to redefine who Carly is and what matters most. This blog will be where I write all the thoughts and dreams of my simple sophomore mind. I've always liked being a simple person. Too many people try to complicate life. I'm keeping it real by keeping it simple.
