Days like this....

when the sun in shining, there is a light breeze on the air and colors are becoming more vivid and bright as the seasons change it makes me realize just how lucky I am. :)
When I was watching Bride Wars this weekend, there was a scene that Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson were running. Kate was exhausted and said, "Why can't we run with ipods!?" and Anne responded, "Because people who listen to ipods only do so because they can't deal with their own thoughts."
....I paused and I realized that I was like that for the last few years. If I was alone, my thoughts would begin to poison my well-being. I worried about every little thing and cried about the mistakes I have made... and then I realized...I don't do that anymore. I can have my quiet moments and enjoy the thoughts in my head, laughing at memories and smiling as I remember wonderful moments and people. I'm truly happy, and it's been awhile since I could say that and truly mean it. :) (and P.S.- I owe a lot of it to that guy right there.)

"There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."
-Carrie Bradshaw

Hi Jenni....some days I really think you find certain blogs on the days that you are meant to find them.....if that makes any sense at all!! Yours is just lovely.

Thank you so much for you lovely comment on my blog today....how kind of you.

And I absolutely love the Carrie Bradshaw quote above - and funnily enough I am guest-blogging on another blog today and used that very quote - it's so true.

Another quote I love - and something that you said above made me think of it - is....

"Every night I wrote a list of the things that might go wrong. Every morning I looked at the list and added a little more. Then one day my pen ran out, and life completely changed".

Have a lovely day, best wishes to you,
Simone :)
