I Believe…

I believe…
in dancing when there’s music [or when the mood strikes you… like when you’re cooking or driving]

I believe…
that you can be moody but shouldn’t let it affect your relationships
that sometimes a bad mood seeps into your relationships, and the best thing you can do is apologize

I believe…
in bonfires
a great glass of bourbon or wine
naps and fluffy blankets

I believe…
in spending too much time with your friends and family
in turning off your phone
in listening to old music

I believe…
in working out but then heading to brunch after [it’s called balance]

I belive…
we shouldn’t always worry about the future

I believe…
that lazy Sundays are necessary every once in a while [like at least once a week]

I believe…
finding your style, and buying pieces that fall into that category vs what’s trendy right now

I believe…
everyone should find someone who loves you. all of you. exactly as you are.

I believe…
everyone should find friends who love you. all of you. exactly as you are.11475add39b102dbbe1a233959900c75

Attitude for Gratitude

I’d like to take the time to give thanks for everything I have in my life.

I’m thankful for my family. They are always there to make me smile and (as clichΓ© as it sounds) have turned from family into my best friends. This doesn’t just include my immediate family, but also my cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents. They truly are an amazing group of people who I am lucky to be related to.


I am thankful for my friends. They have always been there for me and without them I honestly am never happier than when I get to spend time with them.


I am thankful for my boyfriend, who constantly supports me.


I am thankful for those who are not with me today. They have taught me so much and I am so grateful for the love they showed me and the lives they touched while they were around.


Finally, I am thankful for long runs… they never fail to take my mind off anything that might be bothering me and give me a chance to reflect.


What are you thankful for?
