People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.Stacey Jean Speer (via friendly-neighborhood-crystal)
Good morning! Excuse the bed head. We’re at the lake and it’s so easy to sleep in here with the water lapping on the shore and a sky of cloud cover.
Some news: we got engaged on the Fourth and its been the happiest, most whirlwind two weeks of my life! My cheeks hurt from smiling so big the first few days, and it’s been fun to start planning a bit. We’re looking at venues this weekend and hopefully choosing a place/date soon so the rest can come together.
Other than that life-changing event, I’ve been playing beach volleyball, getting through stressful work weeks, embracing my natural waves and never blowdrying my hair, and just overall feeling lucky.
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when people smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful ; I have every reason in the world to be happy.A few reasons why I’ll always prefer living (by elsablt)
