Blessings In Disguise

31 Aug

This is such a good quote. It’s something I need to keep reminding myself of. I feel like life is filled with constant trials… I feel like it’s never ending. It’s true that they are blessings. With everything I’ve been through when I was younger up until now, I’m really just lucky to be around. The difficult times I have gone through really shaped me into the person I am today. Even though I wish a lot of things were different right now, I know that I will get to them in the future. I have a wonderful man that I love so dearly, a really good dog who I have spent my twenties with, I love my parents, and my small circle of friends are great. I have my health, a roof over my head, and people who love me. I truly am blessed and as I’ve gotten older, it is easier to see that through the hard times.

Simple Pleasures: Fall

21 Aug

There are plenty of things I absolutely LOVE about Autumn! The clouds in the sky, the darkness, cold weather, the foliage. The dead leaves are falling, like a cleansing. Rejuvenating for new life and growth after Winter. I’m looking forward to putting on my gardening gloves and breaking out my pruner/trimmer! I like the fact I can assist in the growth of new life. The rain, the puddles, the crunching of leaves while walking my dog. Wearing sweaters, scarves, gloves, boots, and dressing warm – I love it, a lot. It’s an end to Summer who’s now in the past. Here’s to Fall and soon… Winter.

Simple Pleasures: Nice Nails, Girl

20 Aug


I’m not a girlish girl. I’m not very girlie at all. It kind of sucks. I usually try new things and usually fail at it. I ruined a pair of socks yesterday to make a donut so I could make a sock bun for my hair. Didn’t work out so well. I’m not very good with using a curling iron, make up, or anything that a woman would do.

I really wish I had a sister growing up. I wouldn’t be so… Me. I don’t even have a girlie best friend to go shopping with and do whatever it is girls do. I surrounded myself with men because they’re so simple and don’t generally judge. This is what I get.

Well, I did my nails and felt very proud. It’s ridiculous really but I feel a sense of achievement. Obviously, this is a simple pleasure.

The Beautiful People

15 Aug

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

Good Things Are Coming Our Way…

14 Aug

I’m so excited, I am doing my best to make sure things work out the way they’re supposed to. I wish I could go more in depth. I’m waiting for the time to pass by because it is all about time. Regardless if some do not turn out the way I wanted, life is full of blessings!
