Listen to people. Listen to them talk. Listen to them cry. Listen to them vent on and on about their family, friends and husbands. Listen to their good news. Listen to them get excited about life, and in turn get excited for them, too! Cry with them, respond, give advice where it's appropriate. But most of all truly listen. Acknowledge what people are going through in life. Remain from being so opinionated, or my personal favorite, trying to "one-up" ones good news. Do not be so easily offended. Do not get defensive. Allow people to express themselves to you. Be a place they feel comfortable coming to with any sort of news. Share the same level of excitement, sadness, joy and pain. 

Because one day you're going to lose something/someone you love. One day you're going to have the best day of your life. Or you're going to have the worst day of your life. And how horrible of a thought is it to not be able to share those feelings with anyone...if there is anything I've learned about life lately, it's that we are here to experience. To learn. And to grow. But most importantly, we are here to ENJOY. And to share and experience it with the people around us. 

How much easier is it to love and respect a person that truly listens and cares? To me, it is the best quality a person can obtain. 

To listen to someone is to prove your love, devotion, commitment, admiration and so many other detrimental things to any relationship. 

For some reason that topic has weighed heavy on my mind lately. So I thought I would share! Plus, it's been a LONG while since I have blogged. Forgot I even had this thing!

allow me to introduce you to:


AKA the next big thing {see what i did there..?}

I don't give blake NEAR enough credit for all that he does. i could form a massive list of all the man has going for him, but i won't.

Instead, don't mind as a brag about one of his latest accomplishments.

you're looking at worlds next level app discovery and monetization platform (excuse me, wha..?) 

I KNOW RIGHT..? blake gets the same reaction from me every other day. so here it is in what i've found to be the simplest form of an explanation, from yours truly;me. cause heaven knows anything too complex is just a waste of everyones time.

so you know all of those fun apps on your mobile devices? check. and you know when you are inside of that app and an advertisement decides to pop up right in the middle of whatever you are doing and interrupts? C H E C K! well, blake is the one that helps those annoying app developers blast those annoying ads your way       (thank you blake)

no but his company is all about improving the user ad experience.

so no really.. THANK YOU.

AFTERALL. he keeps all those apps we love and enjoy "free" to download.

so blake is to the app developer as the ad is to the app itself.

k a p e e s h?

Blake-->app developer-->ad-->$$$-->free apps-->everyone is happy.

you get the picture..

anyway, i'm pretty stoked for him. he just launched his website and we both are S O excited to see his hard work pay off.

and if everything i just poorly described went in one ear and out the other don't feel bad. i'm the girlfriend and i still ask him every day what he does..check the website anyway. it's pretty amazing!

in the past month i've realized two things, one that my heart is and will forever lie in Utah and two that no matter where you go in life, it has no meaning if your success, failure, good and bad times aren't spent with the ones you love.

moving to California for seven months was such an eye opener for me. i haven't always had the strongest relationship with my parents, especially my dad. in fact there were times when i absolutely despised him. most of which derived from the "teenage years" {need i say more?} but, being away for that long helped me realize how much impact the people in my life really have on me and how much they really do mean to me. i gained a new sense of respect and love for the people who supported me through all of the good, and especially those that stood by my side and loved me unconditionally through all of the bad.

my mum and i have always had a pretty close relationship. we would talk about everything! {and continue to do so} she was everything to me that her mum wasn't to her. and i always loved that i knew i could go to her for anything. now she was never a friend to me. she was my mum. and she made that very clear. at times i wanted her to look past all of the stupid things i was doing and not worry, and to just say, just don't do it again. that was never the case. i was grounded, my car was taken away, taken off the phone plan, and we both had our fair share of tears.. but i am forever grateful for it. in the long run, that relationship was the very one that set me straight. it made me realize that yes, we all make mistakes and we are all imperfect, but that was never a free bee to continue making those same mistakes over and over again. she was the one who taught me that there is a consequence for every action i ever made in this life, whether great or small. and i am so grateful to her for that because it has made me a better person. 

for once in my life i actually THINK before i act or speak. i am able to think of the consequences in my head before I act and ask myself, is it worth it? THIS IS HUGE FOR ME GUYS! if any of you know me personally or well at all, you will know that  this is a down right MIRACLE. 

i know that CA isn't entirely responsible for this change in me. but i know that in the time away from home and loved ones, i was forced to learn and respect people not as my "mothers daughter" but as Demitria Jeannette Kee. i had to learn exactly who Demi is and what kind of person i want to become one day, i had to make those little changes on my own. i had to want it more than anyone else wanted it for myself, and most importantly i had to humble myself in order to pray to God to mold me into the person that HE wants me to someday be.

i feel so grateful for the opportunities and new faces put in my life to force me to become a better me. God puts people in your life for a specific reason and he sends you down paths you would have never thought were possible, but at this point i've learned it's best to just sit back and enjoy the journey and learn all that i can from every situation and every new person i meet. 

stay true to myself and be in tune enough to know which direction God would have me go.

so i'll move back home to Utah and have a better attitude towards the people who all along have just wanted the very best for me, i'll love the people in my life like CRAZY and i will continue to learn and grow as i mold into the person that God would have me be.
