A Random mesh of things I Love, My Interests, My Thoughts, Stuff that Inspires me, and Anything else I feel like Sharing ♥
Hahaha I stumbled across this and it made me giggle so I needed to share…
I saw this quote on one of the blogs I read (Goodmorning & Goodnight):
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ~Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)
Such a beautiful quote, and very true. Love makes you want to better yourself and to make everything around you better. Then I thought about the fact that more then ever in this moment of my life I’m trying harder then I ever have to better myself and everything in my life. Then I realized .. it’s because I love myself more then I ever have before. The quote never mentions when you love someone else, just when you love.
Ona completely random note I thought I should mention … anytime I spell the word beautiful for some reason I have to say it in my head like b-e-a-utiful. Hahaha I know that’s from a movie but I can’t remember which .. does anyone know?
that sometimes “sad” songs make me happier?
Either this is an odd quirk about me or it’s pretty common. I’m sure the mood I am in before I listen to these “sad” songs makes a difference but sometimes after listening to “Sad”, and I put Sad in quotations because I’m not sure if everyone would consider them sad, but I do. Maybe they aren’t sad they just sound sad but there more inspiring instead?, idk but I get this feeling that I can’t explain … it’s a good feeling though.
Does anyone get what I’m talking about?
This week has been busy and long. Getting up at 4am sure is an adjustment.
I’ve began working out everyday before work. Which means I am up at 4am, at the gym by 4:20 am.
I love the feeling that I am doing something so wonderful for myself. I hope I stick with it, working out is so important. Even if you don’t want to lose weight. It helps your body so much. It’s just something you need to do, End of story. I decided to do it before work because then I won’t get busy, or make excuses.
It’s hard getting up at 4am sometimes, but what’s helped me the most is that I announced I’m doing this on my Facebook. So I have all my family and friends keeping my accountable. That’s actually helped a lot! I can guarantee I would let myself go back to sleep if I hadn’t done that. Once I get to the gym I’m motivated, and ready to go. My biggest thing is getting up and going so I’m really glad I shared this with others so that I actually do go. I plan to share more about this as I continue so stay tuned on that :)
I’m definitely living my life for me right now. Not in a selfish way though, at all. I’m spending more time with everyone I care about, working out to stay healthy and to get healthier, working hard at my job, and focusing on my future. It makes me excited when I think of all the awesome things going on right now. Sometimes I think wow all this good stuff is going on, what’s going to go bad? Then I realize everything that’s good is because I’m focused on my life and improving it. It’s not fate that’s making it good, it’s hard work and dedication and nothing besides giving up can take it away. I like having control of my happiness.
I hope everyone whose reading has had a good week!
When nothing is owed, deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it.
I am in awe of this photo. One of the most beautiful aspects of photography is one picture can mean so many different things to different people. A photo can remind someone of something they once knew, it can inspire them to do something, or to act a certain way, it can bring happiness, and it can bring sadness.
This photo inspires me, makes me hopeful, and it makes me happy.
To me it resembles uncertainty, hopefulness, and excitement. You can’t see what’s around the bend but you have a feeling whatever it is it’s going to be amazing. Which is how I feel about my life right now. I have no clue what the future has in store but I can feel inside of myself that it’s going to be filled with wonderful things.
I am also in love with this song from The Avett Brothers called “Head Full Of Doubt/Road Full Of Promise”. I encourage you all to go listen .. and to make it easy for you I’ve attached it below. Enjoy :)
A very much needed relaxing day filled with thunderstorms, cleaning, and cuddling with the animals.
Glad to see everyone made it through the Rapture ;) I never put any belief into the idea that it may happen on Saturday but it was fun to make jokes about it, and to have a false reason to go out and celebrate (on Friday .. you know just in case it was our last chance, and on Saturday to celebrate the fact it indeed was not true)
It’s been a gloomy weekend .. but I don’t mind. I love the sunshine, warm weather, and beautiful blue skies but I also love a cloudy day, and the sound of rain pouring outside. For some reason it gives me a comforting feel. It brings me the same feeling that fall does and I love fall.
Sunday’s especially I love Rain. I think it’s because I love saving Sunday’s as a “lazy” day to do whatever I want and when it’s raining outside you have more of an excuse to hide under the covers with your puppy’s.
I spent a lot of time this weekend with my friend Allie. Her and I have been friends since we were in middle school. Our friendship has had it’s roller coaster moments but in the end we’ve alway’s been there for each other and no matter what we always find our way back to each other. She’s a beautiful person (inside and out) who I can laugh with uncontrollably no matter where we are or what we are doing. I love having her in my life. I know I can count on her for support, for laughter, for times I need to vent, and for times when we just want to have fun and of course she can count on me for all those things as well.
If you haven’t seen Bridesmaids definitely check it out! It’s a fun movie. I saw it with my Sister this weekend we both loved it. My mom and I will be going to see it as well. I recommend it for a fun girls outing!
I stumbled across this quote (literally) and loved it.
I think so many of us believe that you need to be perfect, and we keep searching for perfection. No matter how hard you try things will never be perfect and you will never be perfect. That’s just the way it’s supposed to be. Instead of trying to be perfect, try to love yours and others imperfections.
I’m still here I promise.. This weekend has just been busy. I’ll catch everyone up tomorrow but for now I need sleep :D
Today sort of caught me off guard. To keep things hopefully drama free and not to stir up unwanted problems I am not going to go in to detail. To shortly sum it all up my Ex and I will be getting a divorce. I agree with the decision made, just felt it could of been done a way different way. With a lot more communication. Either way what’s done is done and I’m not going to dwell on it anymore. I hope he knows I truly do think he is a wonderful person, and I hope he is happy. I want to still stay friends, and I hope we will both be mature enough to do so. He’s one of my best friends .. and I want him to remain that.
Now time for my little pitty party to be over :) Back to loving my life and working on making it the best ever! I have the most amazing support system and they are who make my life so wonderful.
Thank you to everyone who is always there for me no matter what. Im one very very lucky girl.
I’m excited for the future .. I have so much positivity going on right now! This summer is going to be a lot of fun.. I can tell already.
P.S My legs kill from Zumba, but it’s such a wonderful pain :D
