Life is worth it

"There are times you can't really see or even feel how sweet life can be. Hopefully its mountains will be higher than its valleys are deep. I know things that are broken can be fixed. Take the punch if you have to, hit the canvas and then get up again. Life is worth it."-Queen Latifah

To my sister

It's my sister's birthday today and it makes me think of all the things I love most about my sister which include the fact that she has great taste in music, a unique sense of style and grace and because she's a lovely person! I'm really glad I have a sister because she makes life more fun and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Something comforting about each day

"What's so fascinating and frustrating and great about life is that you're constantly starting over, all the time, and I love that."-Billy Crystal

I like the fact that each day is a chance to start fresh. Even if what happened yesterday effects what happens in the future, each day is still a chance to start something fresh. Somehow I find it comforting to not know all that tomorrow will bring. To me it signifies how each day can bring so many great things and so I look forward to each day. To all who read this I wish you a very happy tomorrow!

My religion

"My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness."-Dalai Lama
Read more at:

I do consider myself to be a spiritual person. I believe there is a God and the God I believe in personifies love and love to me is something that's given without conditions or expectation that it'll be returned and it's all about being kind. Really, I see religion as a guide to living a good life and to me, living a good life is being kind throughout that life. I find I feel happiest and most at peace when I'm doing something nice for someone else. My hope for everyone is that everyone can find many ways to be kind. It can be as simple as smiling at someone. With each act of kindness the world becomes a more loving place.

Sometimes I wanna have a snow day again

Sometimes I wanna be a kid again
When snow days were days of fun 
Sledding was a regular activity
And snow forts just had to be constructed

The things I liked about having a snow day
Was the excitement that I'd get when I'd see on the news
Or hear on the radio that school was closed 
And I could play hooky for a day.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy school very much
But there's something nice about having a holiday
To be able to play and be with my family
Those are the things I loved best about snow days

Now I'm older even though loads of snow
Doesn't mean any holidays but I still like snow
Even if it's cold it always reminds me of home
And home is where my heart will always be.
