Still on Vacation...

08 August 2007

I thought that I would quickly write an update of my life. First, I would like to apologize for not reading or commenting on others blogs. I have a feeling that I have a lot of catching up to do!

I just want to say that I have never been happier! I feel like I am getting back to my old self (one that most of you do not know). I have not felt this way in a long time (probably not since I have been in elementary school). This is a true happiness, not a fake one that lasts a day or one that I pretend to have. I am truly happy. My life has changed a lot. I rarely get lonely anymore. I know that I have people who love and care about me. I have the Spirit with me most of the time. Everything just seems to be going my way.

To top it all off, I think that I have fully accepted me being gay and not caring what people think anymore. I thought that I fully accepted it before, but now that I look back, I realize that I had not. Now, I will be myself with anyone, including my swimmers. I will not say that guy is cute or I want some action with him (I continue to hide that), but I just be myself. I have become more open with everyone than I have ever been before. It is great and life is great!

I hope that everyone is doing well and I do not really know when I am going to start blogging again. I am thinking that it will probably be after finals next week or maybe not until September. I will just have to see how I am feeling.

The picture above is of good times that I have had with my swim team. I remember that I was really happy at that time, but it did not last. I think that this happiness that I am feeling is going to last for a long time. I am as happy as "the head" is right now...

That's great news! I'm so happy for you! I know life goes up and down a lot but every now and then we get a glimpse, as you have here, that it really isn't so bad. This post made me really happy. I will pray for your continued happiness and well-being. God loves you!

Aww, this is great to hear! You are so totally awesome, I love it when you open up and you're just yourself -- a amazingly fun and energetic person!

Hehe, and I can't wait to get busted by Drex and Salad for the texting... :D :D

Is it just me, or is that clown thing really scary looking?

I'm glad you're doing the happy thing. Life is much more enjoyable when you're happy

If you're happy and you know it clap you hands
[clap][clap]

And three cheers for you!!!

OK, you've got a month to be happy, then it's back to the grindstone. (ooh, that was a downer, sorry!!)

So Gimple, what's your secret to happiness? Openness, honesty, playfullness? What turned your tide, and why do you think this time it's going to last a long time?

You're not into happiness elixers, are you? (just kidding)

I'm glad that you are happy now! Let's have some parties!

Happiness is contagious, and I think being around you has made me catch it. I'm so glad that you've given me a puzzle to frame.

I'm glad that you're happy. I know that you were going through some hard times, but coming to the realization that I'm okay being gay (even though some friends just don't get it) has been one of the most comforting thigns that has ever happened to me. **butt squeeze**

I haven't read or commented your blog for a while and I'm sorry. I just caught myself up and I'm glad to hear you are doing better. I'm coming back to Utah this weekend and I'm excited to see you and all my boys again. Love you!
