So here is the quote that "Inspired" This Post:
It is never too late to be who you might have beenby George Elliot
HOW AMAZING IS THAT?! So amazing. I read it and I was like "Yes!!! YES!! this is so true!!"
You can always change! You can ALWAY'S be better! There is the "True You" in there somewhere, if you only have the courage to bring them out! If you only have the Faith to prove to yourself that you are so much more today than you were yesterday. I seriously plan on living my life by this quote. I may not have always been who I want to be, but EVERYDAY is a New chance to Be that person! :) Loved it!
Enthusiasm moves the world.
by Arthur Balfour
This one is something that I truly believe. Enthusiasm is what makes people actually get up and Do things! If you're enthusiastic about the things you want to do, then others will see and feel your enthusiasm and want to join (or they'll try to bring you down, DON'T LET THEM) I want to be able to change peoples lives with my enthusiasm for life!

Amazon does this thing were you can preview a certain amount of pages in a book... THIS, is how they get you.. I am able to read the first 3 chapters of a book.. Get hooked.. and then WHAM-O "This is the end of the preview" It's horrible.. SO... in the last 2 weeks I've ordered 7 books. I got two yesterday and I am finishing one up that my mom left for me.
The one I am reading right now is by one of my FAV authors- Philippa Gregory!- As usual its really goo! (for those of you who don't know she is who wrote The Other Boleyn Girl as well! :))
The next book I plan on reading is called "The Selection" This one seems interesting. It's about a girl in this "weird future" where people are assigned a number based on their trade/income- 1's are the richest and 5's the lowest. I guess all the Princes in this time have a "selection" and they choose a bride.. this persons family is immediately elevated. It sounds so interesting and I must know how it goes!! :)
And the next one is just going to be a Fun read. Its called "The Summer My Life Began" Its about a girl who is raised wealthy, does as she is told and all that stuff until she graduates and she gets a letter from the Aunt they never talk about inviting her to spend the summer with her... her parents let her go.. so I want to see where it takes her! :)
ANYWAYS Reading again makes me remember Why I LOVE it so much. I'm able to escape and go into a completely different world. I love it! Maybe I'm a Nerd... but I just love it!!!!! :)
OH and I still have more books coming! So when I get those I'll go into detail about them too!

I was a wild child. Full of energy and loudness and excitement. I was thrilled for everything! My cousins have family videos of me on family vacation acting like a total lunatic. (literally, why they never tested me for A.D.D. I'll never understand) I was also the "Ring Leader" of me and my two cousins. I truly believe Whitney and Tanith might have followed me off a cliff If I had told them to :) I was always making up stupid games and even dumber rules to those games, but they always played along and stayed by my side. To this day when we finally get together we are the Three Amigos again and it's like time has never changed.
Then came the middle schools years, I'm being completely and fully honest when I say this. I got ugly. I don't know what happened or why I became such a tragic looking child but I did and I also became very shy. Not around family, my family could never guess that some days going to school knowing that my one friend wasn't going to be there was absolute horror. But everyone has their awkward middle school years.
High School. Eh. I got better looking, once my braces were gone, and I joined the cheer team I got a little more outgoing but I was still more the girl that simply went to her classes, passed her classes, and didn't mind if you copied her. HAHA that was my freshman and sophomore year in a nutshell. By my Junior year I finally had my true Best Friends (Brenna, Cherisa, Breanna, Rachel) and of course my Faithful Best Cousin Friends. I was part of "The Mormon" group in my school and I fit in like a glove :)
Needless to say I was rather naive, but not without my imperfections.
College- This is when I really began to realize how "innocent" I truly was. I think I was very oblivious to the things that were going on around me, I had never dealt with "Drama"- But I sure got my fill. College wasn't All bad and in fact I made some of my very best friends, and MOST IMPORTANTLY this is where I met my current Best Friend (RACHEL MICHELLE TAYLOR!!!!!) So I changed a lot in the college years, grew into almost a completely new person. I was still "ME" per say, but I was different, independence and being 7 hours from any form of family can do that to a person.
There was a small Blip in my life that consisted of moving back home for my mom, working at one of my favorite places ever, and being in a total rut. It was not fun living at home again without any of your friends. So I then moved down to Mesa, and attended Massage Therapy School. Now. During this blip in my life, I got lost. I was already technically not doing what was right, BUT I was REALLY lost. My entire outlook on life was changed and I could feel the sense of hopelessness growing everyday. I guess you can say that the theme of my life was "YOLO" (stupid.)......
FAST FORWARD- through a lot of different circumstances I find myself where I am today. DIFFERENT. Happier. I am still searching for all the things that life can give, but I'm searching for the RIGHT things, the GOOD things. I don't want EVERYTHING in life. We weren't meant to have EVERYTHING. Just the Good things that we NEED. So where as the Lord may send certain trials to certain people. He knows, which ones are meant for me and he is going to give me the ones I can handle. So Basically... I like Me. I've always liked me, but I guess what I SHOULD say, is I'm PROUD of the "ME" that I am today, and I hope that I can only grow into an even BETTER ME! :)

I stick my ground on a lot of things, and even when I know I am in the wrong it is VERY hard for me to admit it and let go of my Pride.
I know this about myself and I am trying to work on it.
However I see some people who have no pride at all and I wonder how they can handle it.
How do you let things go and accept them?
I never let people know that they've hurt me. EVER. To admit to someone that I let them have control and let them hurt me is probably one of the worst things I could ever THINK of doing!
Saying "Sorry" has always been a trial for me as well, When my sisters and I would fight, My older sister was ALWAYS the one to say I'm sorry first. Always. And Stevie Never did, (thus we didn't get along :P) Instead of saying sorry, I simply chose to act like everything was fine, once I was over the issue I assumed that other people were too.
However I find that is not always the case and it's often better to say sorry, rather than pretend it didn't happen.
That's something I've learned in my "wise old age" HAHA
But seriously, Pride... When is it bad to have too much pride?
I am really having a hard time with my pride lately...
How do you humble yourself to others without feeling like they are walking all over you?
Pride, Its a complicated thing.
I guess some would say to "let my pride go completely"
But lets face it... That won't ever happen....

Time may change me
But I can't trace time,
AAAHHHHH.... LIFE! CHANGE! No matter what you do you can't escape time! It just keeps moving, whether you're ready or not.
I like to think about where I was this time last year.
This time last year I was so different. The things are cared about were nothing like the things I care about now.
I cared about having fun, and "doing me" and "living MY life" and all those other "Wonderfully selfish" ideas.
I don't think I was a bad person, just a good person doing stupid things. It happens, you get confused and side tracked and then one day you have a conniption where you are wondering "Where am I going? What am I doing? Who am I? and Why am I here?!"
I had plenty of those moments last year, but this year is finally a new year. I know the answer to ALMOST all of those questions and the answers I don't have I am striving for daily.
I am Aubry. I am a Daughter of God, and I have a DIVINE purpose on this earth.
It may have not yet fully been revealed to me, but I know that I am headed down a path of Happiness.
How WONDERFUL is THAT?! How awesome do those words sound?
PRETTY FLIPPIN' AWESOME if you ask me!
It's amazing to know that if everything else in life seems unclear and confusing the ONE thing that I will ALWAYS have is my knowledge of the Gospel and my Faith in Jesus Christ.
What more could you ask for?!
So happy to know the things I know and for the uplifting people in my life.
The people that are the best examples to me of who I want to be, and how I want to act.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..... (however its goes :P)
Finished lyrics to one of my Fav songs- Changes- David Bowie
still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I've never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I'm much too fast to take that test
(Turn and face the strain)
Don't want to be a richer man
(Turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can't trace time
I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through
(Turn and face the strain)
Don't tell them to grow up and out of it
(Turn and face the strain)
Where's your shame
You've left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can't trace time
Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I'm going through
(Turn and face the strain)
Oh, look out you rock 'n rollers
(Turn and face the strain)
Pretty soon you're gonna get a little older
Time may change me
But I can't trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can't trace time

So I sit here and life is calm and yeah we have tons of other things going on, but at least we all know how to handle those things, What in the world makes it okay for my mom to have any trials at all?
I mean, ANY trials. Physical/Spiritual, I think she has paid her dues and she shouldn't have to deal with anything else. She should be exempt. But I guess that's not how the world works and someones faith will never stop being tried. I'm just glad to know that through any trials of my moms, the first thing she does is call on the Lord for help. When I was growing up I used to feel that it was kind of over the top. Don't get me wrong I fully believed in the power of prayer but I definitely didn't think that it could solve problems. It wasn't until my mom was in the Hospital with the pneumonia that I really could FEEL the power of prayer.
When my mom was sick, practically the entire Mormon World of Farmington (and non- Mormons too) we're praying for my mom and our family. I had never experienced so much love and and felt so many prayers in my entire life!
And to this day when I think about ALL the FOOD that was brought to us, I mean GOOD food, naturally there was your classic Mormon casseroles :P BUT sometimes someone would bring Stevie and I EXACTLY what we were craving and it would be a miracle. Our schedule that summer was pretty much this, Wake up, get dressed clean the house, go to the hospital.... sit... wait.... Dad would go home for about an hour tops to shower, and then we would go get him food, we'd stay for a while, then we would come home and sit.. and wait... when we had family in town they took us out and made us go and do things. It was nice to know they were there for us. Then it was my 21st birthday and I hadn't really even thought about it and my cousins all threw me a surprise party :) LOVE THEM
Some days I would wake up to hear a lawn mower and the Bishop and all the Young Men would be out in our yard doing yard work, pulling weeds, and such. We'd come home from the Hospital and our house would be miraculously clean. For the first week I thought I was going to lose my mind from all the calls that I'd gotten. Not because I didn't appreciate them, but most of the time people were calling at 6-7 a.m. and being a 21 year old and a 16 year old... those early morning calls just did not help.
Any ways I totally got off track and started babbling, but basically what I was talking about in the beginning is that SOME PEOPLE deserve a pass, and I only wish that I could give that pass. But my mom is the strongest woman I know, She's a Fighter and a Spiritual Rock in my life. I will forever be grateful for her example to me in my life. She's Amazing. And I may be slightly obsessed with her, but think about if you almost lost your mom in a matter of 24 hours, how would you react? What feelings would you have?
I personally have decided to NEVER EVER take advantage of her again. I make sure I tell her I love her every time I see or talk to her, and if we ever get in a fight or disagreement I try and make sure I am the first to apologize EVERY time.
Anyways that was probably random and boring.. Just thoughts...

So a little while back I did THIS POST about my female celebrity Girl crush... And thought it was maybe a little WEIRD that I hadn't done my Boy Crush Edition. So here it is. The problem is there really are soo many!!! HAHA BUT I'll try and narrow it down to the main important ones.
Umm..... I think my Oldest obsession is..

I say " Okay let me call them and I'll let them know you're here, Whats YOUR company name again?"
So then, I asked him what he was here to do for them, and he says *insert eye rolling* "I said I'm here to program a pick up printer and... Yaddy yadda yadda computer lingo"
I say "They'll be right with you, you can go ahead and have a seat."
BUT, then I try and remember he was probably just having a bad morning and my sauciness is not going to make either one of us any happier... so I decided to blog about it and get it out of my day. :)

B- BELIEVE (in your self)-Don’t limit yourself and don’t let others convince you that you are limited in what you can do. Believe in yourself and then live so as to reach your possibilities.- Ah, another thing that I struggle with. As I said above I am a pessimist, and that often consists of me telling myself that I can't do something because it is unrealistic, or too late. Welp as far as I'm concerned I've absolutely WASTED the last 5 years of my life. Sure there were some awesome crowning moments, but I haven't really done anything that I am overly proud of. And why is that? It's because I tell myself I can't. So I'm stuck in a job that I don't like just because it pays well and I'm able to pay my bills. WELP no more. I'm officially "Believing" in myself and this year I'm going to try and do ALL the things I've wanted to do and never got the chance to. I'm not going to let other people affect me in my decisions although of course My decisions affect others, but My decisions can only affect people in a NEGATIVE way IF they are NEGATIVE decisions. :)
Although they are SIMPLE, they aren't necessarily the easiest things. Those 3 things are something that comes with years of practice and hard work, and considering I've spent the past 23 years doing almost the exact opposite, Its DEFINITELY going to take me some time to master these ABC's and maybe I never will. BUT from now On I'm Trying. :)

As long as I can remember My family and I have been getting our prescriptions at the Walgreens Pharmacy. It was just a given that it was where we dropped them off and picked them up. Have you heard of the Express Scripts program?
Well a VERY BRIEF description is this :
Express Scripts is a health care system middleman
Express Scripts acts as a middleman between pharmacies providing the health care service and employers and health plans who pay for the medications.
Well turns out that Walgreens and Express Scripts had a contract, negotiations failed and now Walgreens may no longer be a covered pharmacy with your insurance. Who does this affect?
Well Our military for one. One of Express Scripts’ clients is Tricare, which is the health and prescription drug program for America’s military service men and women. Walgreens also offered to contract separately with Express Scripts for Tricare from other Express Scripts commercial business, but these offers were rejected. Express Scripts continues to refuse to negotiate a separate contract for the benefit of the Tricare program and its beneficiaries. All this was done in an effort to allow Military service men and women the right to get their prescriptions at their local Walgreens.
Other changes are this :
Among the steps Walgreens is taking to minimize the disruption is offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club. An individual can join during a special January promotion for only $5, or $10 for a family membership, and receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. More than 400 generics are available with a three-month supply for less than $1 a week. Regular annual membership is $20 for an individual and $35 for a family.
You can check it out BELOW
Many studies have found that Sixty percent of employers would not exclude Walgreens for less than 10 percent savings. What does that mean? Employers value having Walgreens as a pharmacy option for their employees, but Express Scripts wants to take that choice away.
Anyways I just feel that its a shame that negotiations were not successful and it is therefore forcing people to find a different pharmacy for their prescription needs. I personally would have no clue where to go.
So number 2 on my list is:
Zooey Deschanel! I absolutely love her. Her voice is sooo unique and lovely. and he style is sooo vintage and retro! I love it!!!!! and those bangs I'm fully jealous of her ability to pull off those bangs!!! :) I first liked her in Elf as I'm sure most people did, and its because I liked her voice so much in that horribly funny and awkward shower scene LOL Then she was the funny best friend in Failure to Launch? I think? haha and I was dying laughing, lets just say that she has grown on me soo much and New Girl is sooooo stinking HILARIOUS! I love her character Jess.... LOVE!
Up next we have the absolutely gorgeous Diana Agron. As most others I first saw her in Glee and became IMMEDIATELY jealous of her. She is soooooo naturally beautiful and she basically has the best face in the entire world... AND her style and clothing is impeccable. I mean it, I have NEVER seen her wear anything that I didn't love! Everything on the show, movies, and even "real life" is wonderful. absolutely wonderful.

That being said 2011 was a GREAT year! I hope to never forget all the wonderful memories I have made. The discovery of true friendships has been a really great experience. I am fully aware of who I mean the most to and who means the most to me as well. I have grown to have an understanding of my beliefs and principles in life and hope that from now on I can only grow stronger and closer to my Father in Heaven. I love the paths I am taking and am hoping for exciting things to come on 2012. I love my family so much and am so grateful for not only MY health, but the health of my family AKA my mom. She worries me on a daily basis and even if she just has a simple cough I have a freak out and insist she see a doctor. But I would rather have a billion freak outs than to think something is a "mere cold" and have another tragedy. :)
So what is in store for My new year? WELL.... I don't rightly know. I don't like to set "Resolutions" because I only disappoint myself and stress and have freakouts when I fail. So I have decided to follow the advice of Gordon B. Hinckly and try a little harder to be a little better each day and call it good :) So here's to the new adventures of 2012 and heres to hoping for nothing but Joy and Peace in my life. GOODBYE 2011!!! CHEERS 2012!!!! :)
