I wanted to take a moment to point out something very important in this life. A lot of times in my life I am dragged down by so many things, people, stress around me…and I take a lot of things to heart and it affects me. I go to bed stressed about the next day very often. I am often pessimistic- sometimes. But my best friend- Jess- has a very important blog that I couldn't be more proud of. Here is the link: http://365unexpecteddelights.blogspot.com/. She writes every single day (that alone is an accomplishment enough), and she finds something about her day that was positive and happy. That is so amazing! And Healthy. That is a very good thing. I know her very well and often know that her day didn't go well and that she is under a lot of stress, like all of us, but still- she still finds something about her day that was very positive and made the day worthwhile. That is a quality we all should have. Lately, it has been helping me a lot too. I think to myself, everyday, "If I had Jess' blog, what would I pick about today that I would write about? What has been positive today?" I can't thank her enough for shedding that light on how I look at things. Like I said, often I am too stressed and think everything is downright horrible. I need to take a breather and think, what about today was a good thing? What made today not just another day? What about today was a learning experience for tomorrow? I need to focus on that, and keep going. Thank you, Snazzie!! J Love you always <2
"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"
