i believe

aunt martha sent me this this morning. it almost brought me to tears (happy tears), and made me feel so good. all these things are so true, and just gave me the chills.

i believe...birth certificates show that we were born..death certificates show that we died. pictures show that we lived!

i believe...that just because two people argue,doesn't mean they don't love each other. and just because they don't argue, doesn't mean they do love each other.

i believe...that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

i believe...that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

i believe...that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. same goes for true love.

i believe...that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

i believe...that it's taking me a long time and im still working to become the person i want to be.

i believe...that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. it may be the last time you see them.

i believe...that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

i believe...that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

i believe...that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

i believe...that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

i believe...that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

i believe...that my best friend and i can do anything, or nothing, and have the best time.

i believe...that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

i believe...that sometimes when im angry i have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

i believe...that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them.....and less to do with how manybirthdays you've celebrated.

i believe...that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

i believe...that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

i believe...that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

i believe...that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. it could change your life forever.

i believe...two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

i believe...that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

i believe...that even when you think you have no more to give, if a friend cries out to will find the strength to help.

i believe...that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

i believe...that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

i believe...the happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything.

this is so beautiful. it is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life that sometimes reading things like this bring you back into a clearer perspective. so enjoy it :) i certainly did.

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
