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.

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.

2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.

ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

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 :)
