Today's Mantra



Take it from the girl who moved away from the city who held and holds her heart and who had a million teary episodes about the town that really was. There is absolutely NO USE in wishing for what is not. For dreaming of the what if's and what could be's, despite the promise of the manufactured perfect, will only lead to the opposite of savoring the moment. This is the moment you should live in, engage yourself, and make the mundane magnificent. And you know the best thing about this? Do all three and you won't even have to try to be beautiful. You will radiate it.

Love the new profile pic!! And I love this sign, very encouraging!

Oooohhhh "a Schiap semi-matte sister in coral"?? Amazing!! You know I tried a coral and an orange shade last time I went to Sephora for Nars and I couldn't decide how it made my skin look in color. I decided to give it a week and go back to retry the colors. I am due back soon ;) Let me know what you find as well!

A great mantra to live by. I have a similar saying on my wall:

Kiss your life, accept it just as it is. Today. Now. So that those moments of happiness you're waiting for do not pass you by. Kiss your life today, now just as it is.

I need this daily reminder. Thank you for this post!
