Find a penny, pick it up…

Dear Kate Spade, if your prices weren’t so exorbitant I’d rock more than your beautiful quotes. I will continue to love you even though we can’t really be together the way I would like us to be. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

Yours truly, Playful-Penny-Pincher

If you had to describe yourself in four words, which would you choose? It’s okay if you want to use sexy & beast, I won’t judge or tell you you’re wrong. I’ll probably just tell you you’re awesome. Rules are everywhere, so I choose to not really have any around here. Hope you’re cool with that?

Paint a Picture

If you could be anywhere in the world with whomever you’d like…

What would it look like?

Sweet boys with good habits

Something that makes me happy:

The eight-year-old twin boys that walk their two wiener dogs past my house every single day. I’m convinced their mum wont let them out of the house until their dragon ball-z t-shirts are tucked into their jeans that don’t quite reach their ankles because they sit an inch or four above their belly buttons. And their matching velcroe tennis shoes are a must, because they pull everything together like a perfectly tied bow.

(this lovely woman took this photo of Dexter the Wiener dog)

The not-so-sentimental thing that makes me happy:

Closing my eyes while I quietly inhale pink, exhale grey, & pretend that this is my closet.

Also, when I play make believe these are my wooden kitchen utensils too. (they will be mine in real life next time I have arts & crafts time)

What makes you happy?

All my love, Bee

If I could…

wear anything today, it would be this. I think.

“She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her away she adjusted her sails.” -Elizabeth Edwards

Just one thing

“If you let it, life can become a simple pattern of staying in your comfort zone and never wandering out into the unknown to see what lies on the other side of its horizon. Today is Monday, the first day of the week; change your patterns, even slightly today, so that a new world can find you. Do ONE thing that scares you today, ONE thing that makes you a little nervous, ONE thing that you never thought you would do. If you do ONE thing every day you will have done 365 NEW THINGS in a year! Today, don’t try to tackle everything, but please do one thing!’

– Jackson Kiddard, author & polymath

Will Knows

It’s Monday Morning & you probably don’t have much time to spare. But if you do, listen to this motivational video with Will Smith. I think he has done a fantastic job balancing his career and his family, which is something that is truly difficult to do even when you’re not a celebrity.

Another reason I love Will Smith? He celebrates his wife instead of acting like he is entitled to having her be his partner (need an example? go here) I don’t care who you are, whether you are a celebrity, CEO, or athlete, you still need to cherish and celebrate the brilliant people in your life. My belief is that if you aren’t being celebrated it is time to upgrade.

And… I’d feel wrong for not sharing these photos of their home that showcases their incredible taste. Can you say dream home?

Todays motivational podcast is “The Masters of The Secret”

I read The Secret for the first time when I was a junior in high school. I was struggling at school and in my personal life at the time and was looking for any and all solutions. Bad habits were making my days revolve around negativity and I was tired of living like that — I was ready to give life my very best. After reading it my day to day life began to shift. My habits went from negative to positive and I was much happier. It wasn’t a miracle, it wasn’t magic, it was a decision I made that focused on turning my life around. The Secret teaches you how to handle life’s ups and downs and how to create a good life for yourself.

Follow this link to listen to Bill Harris talk to the people behind the Secret. The things I learned during my junior year in high school from The Secret  are still used in my life today. I hope you find it to be as uplifting & inspiring as I do.

To all naysayers: If you think The Secrets method of using The Law of Attraction does not work, then you’re right. If you believe it can work, it will. What you put out is what you get back. Your thoughts are powerful, whether you believe they are or not.

All my love, Bee
