It’s amazing how life works. Broad statement, I know.
Right now I’m referring the wonderful balance that our universe seems to maintain. When things are falling apart and I’m not sure how much more I can take, I’m always granted with a few days that are filled with nothing but smiles. That’s what this weekend was. Not perfect by any means but it was productive, relaxing and filled with the people that I love. Just what the doctor ordered.
I’m constantly forgetting to embrace the present moment. Society has trained us to always have our thoughts set on the future. We plan, organize, and change today in order to create a better tomorrow. But, tomorrow is merely a figment of our imagination. It doesn’t exist until it becomes the present. So, find the simple beauty and joy that surrounds you with every passing moment. Smile, laugh, and surround yourself with positivity- that’s where true happiness and bliss are found.
This weekend I worked, cleaned, studied, finally got errands done that I’ve been putting off for weeks (I’m no longer driving with one headlight!), and enjoyed a visit from my mom and sister on Sunday. Nothing particularly “out of this world” but I enjoyed every second of it. Simple smiles.
Unfortunately, I didn’t think to photograph most of the weekend but, if you don’t follow me on instagram (@missemilydryden), here’s what you missed:
I have a number of exciting posts planned for the next week or so. One of my best friends that recently graduated from FIDM is working on a beauty-related guest post which I’m super excited about. Yee!
Here’s to remembering how beautiful life can be…
