liiightsout Sooo I've missed a few days and I don't want to make an excuse why. I was just enjoying my weekend and I had a massive headache yesterday. Who knew drinking too much coffee for one day could make you feel like you have a hangover headache 2 days later!? Definitely makes me want to avoid having coffee too often. Anyways...
----------
We're pretty good at rushing things in life. We rush to get things done, rush to get from place to place. We rush relationships. We rush to get to the future. I'm guilty of it currently. I've been spending a lot of time thinking about life a year from now. It's hard not to when I'm really excited about it and I like to plan things out before they actually happen. My life a year from now is going to take a lot of planning, especially if we are planning to make such a big move and I have a lot of planning to do for my business and where I'd like to be in a year with it. But my point is that while we shouldn't forget about the future, it's more important to focus on life now. We can't fast forward and skip to where we currently might wish we are. And while we may want to at times, if we actually could, we might miss out on some important moment or a special moment that's not going to happen again. And those moments are what are important at the end of our lives. Not rushing to accomplish something or to get somewhere or be someone else in the future. Enjoy the day. Don't let the future overshadow it. It makes you lose focus on life now and lose focus on things you need to do now and get through now. We shouldn't live our lives so fast paced that we forget about now and lose focus on life currently. Enjoy everyday as it comes!

liiightsout This orange juice is like crack.. I really need to just invest in a juicer and make my own. 2d
  •   jayparry13 You don't own a juicer?! There's nothing like fresh juice every morning 2d
  •   alexandrathegreat21 I don't have one of the super fancy omega juicers, but I find that for oranges a regular press still works works better than my juicer :) 2d

liiightsout Oh. My. Gawd. Most amazing dessert I've had in soooo long. Mini apple streusel pie from mothers and coconut sorbet from vitaly cafe. I don't want to share any with @plant_based_ninja! 😬 #vegan #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #vegandessert #whatveganseat 3d

liiightsout I think Julian has become my favorite brand of cider! Their black and blue cider is amazing and I can't wait to drink this in a month! (I've decided to not drink for a month) I've heard razzmatazz is amazing, but couldn't find it anywhere until today! #julianhardcider #razzmatazz #hardcider 4d

liiightsout Patience means having the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, difficulty, or annoyance without getting angry or upset.

We should all practice patience. Not only will we cause ourselves less suffering and less stress by having patience, but you'll be able to see the world around you more clearly and be better able to accept it as it is. Today (and everyday) I'm going to practice patience while I'm driving. This is probably the one thing I often get impatient and irritated with. But why? There really is no point in getting impatient and irritated and angry, I can't change how other people drive or how many people are out driving. The only harm getting angry causes is harm to myself. It can ruin my mood, my day, and so many other things. It can wreak havoc on my body and it's definitely not good if it's chronic! So practice patience today and everyday in all aspects of life.

liiightsout In an effort to be a more positive person again, I decided that I'm going to post something positive everyday. Today it's this.
----------
It may be cliché, but what makes you happy? Think about it and figure it out and then do more of whatever that might be.
Originally I started to write something else, but then realized it was the opposite of what I'm trying to do. Already learning about my thoughts again! So I changed it to ask myself what makes me happy? And well, bike rides alone where I'm able to just zone out and get fully into just the feel of it. The ocean when it's free of the summer crowds. A really delicious soy hazelnut latte. Tea from Teavana. Reading a book that's so good you get completely immersed in it. Fruit, so much fruit. Peanut butter. Nature and the beauty of the world that we so often forget about. There's so much more, but I don't want to make this a really long post. I'm glad I shifted my thinking for this post, because I actually do feel a little more positive because of it. Focus on what makes you happy today! You'll be amazed at how just doing that can brighten your mood. #positive #positivity

liiightsout I can't believe that it's been a year with this handsome guy. Sometimes it feels like it's been so much longer than that! Thank you for putting up with my weirdness and crankiness (at times). You're pretty amazing. 6d
