A Reminder to Live Your Best Life

While my average day includes me watching one more episode of SVU before showering, rushing out the door with toast, going to work undercaffeinated, and then collapsing on the couch with a bowl of pasta before bed, there is a lot to say about taking care of yourself to live a more fulfilling life.

Hidden on my laptop, in a special little place where I keep quotes and photos that remind me of who I want to be, is a step-by-step guide on living a more fulfilling life. It isn’t difficult or confusing or meant to stress anyone out, but rather gives helpful tips to living a life full of simplicity and content. With everything going on recently (finishing college, leaving my job, moving) I have been living a very unfulfilling life as of late. I’m not doing those small luxurious things every day that make me happy. As a Taurus I thrive from those things, and here I am depriving myself.Read More

Friends, Plain and Simple

A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are ~ Unknown

No matter where I might be, or who I might be with, or whatever emotion I might be feeling, friends are always there. Honestly, they are the greatest of them all.

I am blessed with the most amazing friends in the world. Honestly, they are so amazing and I look to the heavens to think about how truly lucky I am. They make my day better when no one else can, they provide that push I need when even my family can’t get me out of bed.

Friends are there until the end. I’ve had so many amazing friends and usually within a few years I end up leaving them, because I’m moving or because we just have too little in common that we cannot pretend to be friends anymore. But I think that any friendship, big or small, little or great, is something that is important. My longest friendship was 4 years. My shortest friendship was a month. And sure, my longest friendship (which is still going on) isn’t really deep or anything (they aren’t my best friend) but I still cherish the friendship deeply. And the shortest friendship (with whom I am no longer talking to) was really great, even if things ended badly. I consider both of these people to be people with whom I had a great time with whenever I was in their presence.

Friendship is, without a doubt, the best thing to even walk the planet. I love my friends and this post goes straight to you guys. You rock my world and turn it upside down. And for my bestie Amanda, man, what would I do without you??

So, go celebrate your friends and remember just how lucky you are to have them in your life.

Loving friendship,
