A few Years and change

Over the years not much has changed with me. I grew into my face and body, i figured out who my real friends are, and realized how miserable life is without my brothers at home. The day michael left for his mission, crazy drugies tried to get in my house. In september something happened with jaron that i always hoped wouldnt happen, but couldnt change the fact that it was going to. Now that it is Christmas break (Haleleua!) i get to see them more than normal. My brother Michael is engaged to a wonderful girl and will be marrying her in march. Jaron is a better singer than i have ever met. The mtp program has made him who he is. A preformer. My parents have just recently celebrated thier 30th anniversary. I will have had my dog for a year on new years eve. Then there's me. I still play the cello. I love it so much! It is one thing that im certain i never want to stop doing. Thats the update. For all who read this... Merry Christmas, and Happy New year.
Love Devin. Hehe! :)

In the Strength of the Lord

I can try and try, Yet fail so many times
I was not designed to face this life on my own.
I can never be enough, if i try to do it all alone.

But in the strength of the lord
I can do all things.
He knows how to change the weakness in me
So i will let his love lift me up.
He believes i can do hard things if i will trust him
And walk Forward in the strength of the lord

He promised me there would never be
Anything too hard to overcome in my life
I can conquer anything if i give all my heart and mind

But in the strength of the lord
I can do all things.
He knows how to change the weakness in me
So i will let his love lift me up.
He believes i can do hard things if i will trust him
And walk forward in the strength of the lord.

I love my friends. I have recently discovered who my true friends are. There are the ones who love me. They text back, talk to me, and accept me and want to be around me. And its not that i didnt have that before but i feel like this is who i belong with. And if you are reading this you know who i am talking about. I love my friends because they have basically filled a hole in my life. Whereas i dont see my brothers anymore they make me feel like i can be loved. And not just by my awesome parents. There are the friends im talking about and many others. I have friends just recently moved in by me and they ALWAYS are real nice. They have always been nice and i dont usually get that in the neighborhood. I love all in the neighborhood and hope they love me back. I love my friends and want all who read this to know i love my them.

Lately i have felt low trust in my friends. I have let them down by doubting them and not listening. I have tried to work so hard on this but cant seem to change. I love all my friends and want to keep them so much. Maybe too much though. If i don't get a call or text back i freak out. I know its wrong and i have lost friends along the road for this reason. So the point of this is to let you all readers know when you have doubts ignore them, or find a solution. Talk to your friends about how you feel and if they cant accept that then their not your real friends. If they are true friends, they will try to love you and accept you always. Love them, support them, and talk to them even if they don't talk back.

District Select

A while ago i was feeling low. Things had happened in my family and i was just not happy. So like i normally do i went to play my cello. But this time it was different. I felt sad still. I felt like i didnt sound good. I cried and was talking to my mom. I didnt know why i felt so low, i felt like quitting. i slept and went to school the next day. I was feeling low and still didnt completely like how i sounded and felt depressed. So the same thing happened. Accept when i went to school i didnt feel so sad. I went to orchestra and the teacher had some news. She told us all about District Select Orchestra (DSO) and got us all excited. DSO is where the teacher selects (Hehe hence the "S")the most talented students from each of their classes. These students go and play with the other selected kids from around the district. They have a big concert with actually really cool music and so the parents can ACTUALLY ENJOY the concert. So why am i telling you about this? Because my teacher chose me! I am so excited to do it! My concert is november 16th at 7:00 PM at Northridge High School. Please come support. You may actually enjoy it. :)

Im alright

What i have recently discovered is that you may not be expecting something to happen. I know right? I just barely figured that one out. Someone may have hurt you in the past. And thats okay. Im Alright. What they may have said to you could have hurt you so badly you question your own worth. But its okay. Im alright. Ill get through it and forgive the people who hurt me. They might have realized what they did was wrong. Maybe not. Still be their friend. Love everyone and deal with it. Like my awesome Mom said (at one point) "Put on your big kid panties and deal with it". So do! If something happened, it happened. With me it was about my friends. With anyone reading this it could be completely different. But accept it and move on. Remember theres someone who has felt your pain. Oprah! Awe who am i kidding? You know who it really is. Just slip that one in your back pocket.

Giggle Giggle

Be greatful for the ones you love.
Because you could loose them
You could almost loose them
You could discover something
They might fall away
They might not always be home
They might not be strong
But we need to love them
Love them

I've recently realized what is true in life. Some things i already knew like , The gospel, The prophet and The scriptures. Some things i didnt know mattered so much to me and i didnt even realize it were Friends, Family, And Being true to myself. One day we all have to wake up and realize " Hey this is me. Im gonna deal with it. I love me no matter what." What also means alot is friends. I Realized "Ok. So im wierd, Not very tough, And kinda random." I needed to find people who accepted me no matter what and love me for myself. I realized that the people i loved and needed were right in front of me. I just never took the Chance of talking to them. Now that i did if feel complete. And lastly My Family. I know we all hear that family is important and we need to bond and stuff but its true. I noticed, My parents accept me. They love me no matter how much therapy i need or how stupid i get sometimes. I can act how i want around them and feel comfortable. I can do the same with my brothers. I have never felt closer to Jaron and Michael. I feel like i just noticed how much alike me and my brothers are. I love my life and hope to live it as long as possible. And i feel this way Because of my family. So listen to your family, spend time with them, and no matter what happens dont let them go.
