Thoughts Become Things... Choose The Good Ones

Because no matter WHAT is going on in your life, when you get a "note from the universe" - everything is put into perspective. And somehow, the universe knows exactly. what. to. say.

Sometimes, I'm all, " touche, universe." Othertimes I cry. Or laugh. Or just smirk. But it's always, always profound. The one I get on my birthday stays with me all year long. And I wanted to share these notes with you today.

Sweet & Low

nothing tastes like sugar it’s all sweet and low
nothing drinks like lemonade
nothing skips like stone 
nothing runs like water when your one true love is gone every day that comes along has a silver medal on 
nothing soars like falcons it’s all paper planes 
 nothing stings like thistles and nothing floods like rain
  nothing roars like fire when you’re standing on your own
 no shelter from the coming storm will ever feel like home
 nothing’s cut like diamond it’s all shades of coal
nothing breaks like tidal waves nothing mends like bone
nothing tastes like sugar when your love can ne’er return 
 how to feel with half your heart is the toughest thing to learn

check out this check. for reals.

heureux de la vie

Disclaimer: I am feeling really good today. This is a cheesy post. Most of my posts are, but today feels extra cheesy. Sometimes cheese is annoying, so.. you've been warned. :-)

10 days until daylight savings. When I leave work, it will be light out. I'll drive home and I won't MIND the time spent in traffic, because the windows will be rolled down, the sun will be shining, and the country tunes will be blasting. My call home to Tyler won't be just "what should we have for dinner? how was your day?" but "what should we DO tonight?" Yes. Pumped.

Things lately are so... hopeful. Exciting. I can't think of the right word... anticipatory? I don't know. We are married. We are married and things DO feel different (we've been together 7 years and lived together for 6, so we both figured, what's left to change?). We filed our taxed JOINTLY last night. We are learning & growing & thinking about our future & making small, careful, grown up plans. We are allowing ourselves to think of & imagine the wonderful, big, happy, exciting, thrilling, ever-changing life that is before us. To not limit our possibilities with fear - but to educate ourselves on things we are afraid of. We know that when we leap, the net will appear. 

And then... as soon as we start allowing ourselves to think, to get excited about things, somehow things magically start to fall together. Is that how you know you are on the right path? Or is this something we are manifesting ourselves? Either way, we are plowing ahead fearlessly (well, that's a lie - not fearlessly. But you can be afraid and brave at the same time, right? That's what being brave is.) and are just EXCITED about life.

*whoa, another disclaimer. not talking about anything really specific in this post. like, not trying to get preggo or anything right now, if that's what you thought. just a vague, overall excitement about future. that's all. and that's enough.
