Abraham Lincoln-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The WeekThis weeks quote is by Abraham Lincoln and it talks about living your life while you are alive.

Abraham LincolnI loved this quote when I saw it because I know it is true.  I think as we get older we forget to live our lives and not just exist.  I find myself getting stuck with just going day by day and not really enjoying or doing anything other than existing.  I now try to take a step back and try to live in the moment but I can be and is hard to do.

What do you think about this quote?

8 Of The Best Reasons To Live In Utah

reasons to live in utah

This was a prompt from the writers workshop a few weeks ago and I wanted to write about it because I always complain about living in Utah but there are some great things about living here as well.  I am going to list a few of the reasons that I love living in here and why.

  1. I love that we have all four seasons.  I know I always complain about how hot summers are and how cold it is in the winter but it is so nice to have all 4 seasons and not just one or 2 of them.
  2. It is super pretty here almost all year around because of the changing seasons.
  3. I love the mountains and I can’t imagine living in the midwest where it is basically flat.
  4. I love all the different things you can see and do in Utah.
  5. For the most part I love the majority of the people who live here.  There are some people who I can’t stand but for the most part people aren’t to bad here.
  6. I love that I am not looked at funny when people find out I chose not to drink alcohol.  I did drink at one time but now I really don’t see the point in it.
  7. I love going to Temple Square at Christmas time and looking at all the lights they put up.
  8. The last thing reason I love living here is  I am comfortable being here since I was born & raised here.  I know that is a silly reason but for me that is a huge thing because I hate change.

Those are 8 reasons I love living in Utah.  Why do you love the state you live in?
