Ask Yourself.

Rarely. I need to do this more often. I never thank God in the happy moments. I often find myself fleeing to him for protection or in trouble. I need to be thankful for this day, this bed I'm sitting on, and this roof above my head.

Stop and think about it. What REALLY makes you smile? How often do you smile? Nothing gives me more satisfaction when I find myself smiling when I'm by myself. No matter what it may be about. But when I find that I can SMILE and be HAPPY in solitude I find so much joy in that moment. Weird... but true...

First of all. How great is that picture above? I wish I was in that crystal blue water right this moment. But I've learned that getting into a daily routine can sometimes make us feel like we are just running through the motions and existing. I like to do something silly each day, keep goals, and laugh so that I do not feel this way. Reevaluate your life and see what makes you tick and what makes you happy. Do more of those things and do them with all you have!

Gosh I feel like I need to be reminded of this each day. It is so easy to get caught up in life's daily battles and struggles that we forget how fortunate we really are. I do not have cancer. I have both of my parents. I am alive. So many blessings in my life to be thankful for!

I attempt to try something new every day. I love trying new things! How will you know that you don't like something until you try it?

I'm a firm believer that crying can be like therapy - it can release feelings you did not know you had and it can free you. I believe crying shows strength. When I see someone I care about or respect cry it definitely shows their passion for something. I love that about crying.

Most definitely. My life has been full of so many fun memories lately. The things I've done that I feel are most memorable are those that I actually did not plan and were much more spur of the moment, with my best friends, and usually involved laughing.
