crumpled tissues, gatorade, reality tv & sitcoms

so I'm laying on my sofa recovering from an illness ( some type of small bug or virus) that I've had the past two days. 

What have I done these past two days? I've done nothing but blow my nose and leave tissues all over the place. When I'm sick I often feel like poop and begin to get lazy when it comes to the placement of my tissues so---don't judge me!

anyway, I've missed school two days now and I absolutely abhor missing school because I abhor make-up work and being behind -___-

but now I'm about 90%  better and all that is left for me to do is regain my strength and get some food in my system. Yesterday, all I did was have a couple of teaspoons of orange gatorade every 5 minutes or so. Surprisingly, me having to drink gatorade to help my illness does not make me enjoy gatorade any less. 

Besides sleep, using up all the tissue, and sipping gatorade, I've been indulging in constant reality tv as it amuses me and makes me laugh like-->  Are these people for real? People don't really act like that do they?

& then there are the sitcoms that I have seen every episode of yet I continue to watch them and laugh like I've never laughed before...at least I feel better though <3 haha ;p

as relaxing as it is to chillax at home and watch tv, I am more than ready to get back into my usual routine at school as I don't like being sick nor do I like to sit around and do pretty much nothing. At least not when I'm supposed to be in school. My anxiety is wierd like that! Haha

until next time, Jas ;p

getting to beautiful....

Just some thoughts..

I remember being in middle school and trying to figure out what my personal style was when it came to fashion and beauty. Back then I thought beauty was made up of  glossy lips and  designer clothing.  But the clothes you wear nor the make-up applied is beauty at all. If that were true anytime you were naked and barefaced you'd be ugly!

As I got older I came to realize that beauty truly comes from the inside. I graduated middle school and went to high school only to see some of  my friends change their physical appearance and personality to "fit in".
I realize now that society and the media's idea of beauty influences so much of the world around us.

I had to work on getting to beautiful. I , like many, had that awkward preteen phase when one struggles to realize that "beauty is more than skin deep".  I now believe that beauty comes from within. What makes someone beautiful? I think true beauty starts with having a good heart. Beauty is loving yourself and loving others.  Beauty is your natural appearance! I can appreciate make-up, its an art form and enhances the beauty you are born with. But getting to beautiful means that you can feel beautiful without make-up or hair extensions or even the fanciest of clothing. Beauty is not a size, weight, skin tone, hair style, or certain face or body structure or shape.Most of all,  beauty is not anyone's opinion of you....One person may think you are gorgeous while another person may find you simply tolerable in appearance. You are beautiful regardless of what a person thinks or says about you. Who created you? Jesus! Who is anyone to tell you that you are any less than beautiful when Jesus Christ, the King of Kings made you just the way He wanted you? You are beautiful just the way you are <3 .

What am I saying all this to say?
Your highest compliment in regards to appearance should be "...you are beautiful!."
Because no matter what the media or anyone says you are beautiful :) <3

You are beautiful without a doubt because you are made by God, you are made in His image. If nothing else convinces you of your beauty ( your beauty being the beauty you were born with unaltered and just the way you are).  lets look at what the Bible says about beauty and what a woman of God should be like <3 :)

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is vain, but a woman who serves the Lord is to be praised."
- Proverbs 31:30

" ...I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothe, but with good deeds, appropraite for women who profess to worship God."
- 1 Timothy 2:9-10

"But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart." - 1 Samuel 16:7

These were just some thoughts I wanted to share with the blog world...especially the women :)

oh! &  remember :

"You are altogether beautiful, my darling ; there is no flaw in you" - Song of Solomon 4:6-8 <3

Be the beautiful you that you were created to be <3 xoxo & God Bless!

the diary of a princess....

Hello Blog world!

I decided to create a blog after deciding that I'd like to share some of my life's moments with others! 
I also have a family full of writers who have recently jumped on the blogging bandwagon :)

So here I am...Now just for an introductory post... :)  

Why do I call my blog the princess diary?

I was born in 1994, the year that the movie Aladdin came out featuring the arabian Princess Jasmine.  Was I named after this princess? No! But do I like the fact that my name is associated with  royalty? Yes! I call my blog the princess diary because I am a daughter of the King, Jesus Christ, and Him being a King makes me a Princess. By calling myself a princess I in no way intend to say that I am more important or valuable than any other teenage girl or daughter of the Lord, I just thought it was a creative blog title using my name and religious values. <3

What will I blog about?

I plan to blog about life's everyday challenges and precious moments as they come. I will also blog about health and fitness, poetry and art, fashion, and most of all my everyday walk with Christ. <3 

Until next time,
<3 Jasmine
