Quote of the Day

Take a shower,
wash off the day.
Drink a glass of water.
Make the room dark.
Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence.
Notice your heart. Still beating.
Still fighting.
You made it, after all.
You made it, another day.
And you can make it one more.
You're doing just fine.

Quote of the Day

While reading an InStyle magazine, I came across this Meg Ryan quote. And it really resonated with me. Ahhh, the amazing moment when the message clicks. You know, THE message. I needed this.

 "A person should assume that half the people she meets in her life won't like her for the precise reasons that other half will, and she might as well stop trying to please everybody because, given that fact, it's mathematically impossible anyway."

Meg Ryan

#38. What I'm grateful for today

I've decided to restart this blog after neglecting it for sometime. It'll be for myself. My sanity. And to get me to open up my damn eyes to the happiness, the positivity, and the good that is in my life. Because I'm having a rough time seeing it right now. I'm not in a good place.

And with that, I'm starting my "what I'm grateful for" posts again.

I'm grateful for having the intellect to realize that it's time for me to change my outlook on things.

Today I'm grateful for that new car smell.
After 11 years of driving my little tin can, I bought myself a car!
I'm a big girl, folks.

You so corny.
 Oh, and check out these candy corn sugar cookies. 
 They don't look too hard to make. Just add food coloring to the dough and stack the different colored layers on top of each other. Go HERE for the recipe!

#35 What I'm grateful for today

Today I'm grateful for white chedder cheez-its. So darn good. But why can't they be healthy?!
 
I did a quick search, and it turns out making a homemade version isn't all that hard:

#34 What I'm grateful for today

Today I'm grateful for that unexpected and unplanned extra hour I had to myself this morning.
I spent it the best way I could. I went to Target and left with a bunch of things I never knew I needed.
My two faves:
 
This awesome pillow - on sale for under $6
 
These gold boat shoes - on sale for under $8

Quote of the Day

"I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves
as if they were locked rooms, or books, written in a very foreign language.
Don't search for the answers which could not be given to you now. Because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now, perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without ever noticing it, live your way into the answer."
 
- Rainer Maria Rilke -

Pleated skirts

I like the movement these skirts have. Short or Maxi, and everything in between, pleats are back in style.
Flowy and feminine.
