9 Things I won't change my mind on

Excited to participate in this link up with Lauren and Tiffany!

The Austin Family Diary

Today's topics: 9 things I won't change my mind on. 

One // Jesus is my savior. 

And thank goodness for that! Because I for suuure need one :)

Two // Mexican food is always worth the calories.

I'm from Southern California, so I was basically born with a burrito in hand. 

Except this is probably legitimately true, considering Mama's last meal before I was born was at our favorite Mexican spot, Tony's. 

Three // A work out makes any day better.

No matter how I walk into the gym, I walk out happier. 

Four // Crazy or not, family is everything.

Some days we may all be a little crazy, but my family is my world. 

And I can't wait to see them this weekend :)

Five // I need the Bible. 

It tells me how to live my life. 

I might not always be good at following it, but I need the guidance. 

Six // Compliments go farther than you know. 

Compliment people. 

Friends, strangers, anyone. A little compliment can go a long way. 

Seven // Driving + loud music = perfect therapy sesh.

Works every time. 

Eight // A conflict takes two people. Apologize. 

Even if I don't feel as though I need to apologize, I always feel better after I do. 

Nine // Choose love. 

There is good and bad in every day. 

I need to choose to find the good. 

Choose to focus on the love. 

What are some things you won't change your mind on?

AMEN! Mexican food is definitely worth all those calories! DAMN RIGHT!

I hate to work out but always feel much better after I do!

LOVE my cray cray family!

Bible scriptures speak to me. The one I read today was spot-on.

Driving and loud music is the only way to go--until you have kids. Ugh.

I ALWAYS CHOOSE LOVE!

We are so much alike! And I'm much older. Ugh.

I like this, like a lot. :) I feel like compliments go a long way, too. Not to brown nose, but as a way to genuinely make someone feel better about themselves. You never who really needs to hear it!
