Do You Ever Have Those Days?

So, as much as I love being here in California, there are some days when it gets kind of lonely and I find comfort in my new friends, Stacy and Clinton. From TLC's "What Not to Wear". I love the show and look forward to it. Well, on one particularly gloomy day, I was watching said show and had to leave the room. So I paused it and went to do whatever it was, but when I came back to my friends, this is what I saw. . .

I couldn't help but laugh out loud, and then think to myself that I have no real reason to be feeling the way I was. I got myself up (after the show, of course) and remembered that I have so many things to keep me busy, and so many things to make me happy, and of course I am thankful for all of them.

This picture has been cause for many conversations lately, and I am glad that the TV paused where it did. This woman was excited because someone she knew was getting a make over. It wasn't even her! In my life I need to appreciate the little things and enjoy the things that make me happy. I am pretty sure I won't be running around screaming with my hands in the air, but on the inside, this is exactly how I feel. No, not every second of every day, but I try to feel this way at least once every day. Some days are better than others, but I have been blessed with so much that I can't help but give back by being happy and trying to make those around me feel the same way.

I JUST LOVE YOU! You have always been one of the most optimistic people I know, and I really love you for it. Stay happy and good for you for deciding to be happy. That is a gorgeous picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. I secretly love Stacie & Clinton too, I'm scared of them, but I love them.

I love that show! I wish you were down at my end of Cali, then we could hang out. I noticed your reading the same book I just finished ("...the potato society"). I loved it, you'll have to let me know how you liked it.
