say yes to more.
seek out sparkle.
let beauty sneak up on you, catch you & wrap you up completely—
when it calls for closing your eyes to embrace the moment fully, do it.
& when it calls for outstretched fingers because there’s “that something-special-feeling” in the wind?
stretch ’em wide, starshine.
find incredible shoes & adventures to match them.
spend more on experiences & events,
and less on things.
cook more with that gorgeous husband of yours, tiny counter space be damned.
eat foods you’ve never tried before;
add new sauces & spices.
don’t let “them“—
the naysayers, the sassy-mouths, the cynics, the flat-out jerks—
ever harsh your mellow, crush your happies or dispel your zen.
find the quote to ink on your arch.
remember that you can do absolutely anything you set your mind to do—
but good lord, darlin’, you don’t have to do it all at once.
baby steps. tiny bites.
acquire cute, fabulous new spectacles & make a point to read wonderful, soul-charging, word-comfort-food-filled books whilst wearing them.
do risky things that delight you.
be brave & bold & awesome, even if you’re sleepy.
send pretty cards &
sunshine-infused words &
make it beautiful.
