e3f41f66e9b409950c9a6f7be1934f47

My best friend is getting married this year. I tell you this, because this weekend we’re going away for her bachelorette. I CAN’T WAIT!

SUN, SAND, SEA from Sun rise to Sun Set … this is one of those vacations, that I’ll probably need a vacation post vacation.

For the  of us traveling, I hope this is a chance to do nothing but relax, forget about the worlds worries and live in complete bliss.

Truth be told, there’s no one I know who deserves a happily ever after more than this woman!! It’s her heart … it’s how pure it is, and how badly she wants to see the world in a happy state. It’s how giving she is, it’s how deep she cares for people and how far she will go to make you laugh. It’s her tough advice, it’s her spicy nature and her nonstop dancing.

For the most selfish reasons ever, I get crazy anxiety attacks when I think about the fact that she’s getting married. I couldn’t be happier for her, I know she will be happy, but I also couldn’t be more scared. She’s precious to me, her love and all that she stands for – I’m scared any of it ever gets taken for granted.

Dear Soon-to-be Mr. Best Friend’s Husband, if you hurt her … you have no idea what you have coming. Seriously. I will destroy you. Be a cool dude; make her laugh; be patient with her; grow with her. You’re getting a piece of me, come august. You guys will lead an amazing life, go on tons of adventures; enjoy every second of it.

Dear Soon-to-be Mrs. Best Friend … I love you dude. I’ll love you forever and not just me, but I know there are many out there that are standing to protect you, support you, laugh at you and with you. I can’t believe in a little over 2 months you’re going to be a wife…. Ewww you’re going to live with a boy!! They’re not so bad. Love him … allow yourself to love him and for him to love you. Laugh together, grow together, be patient with him … guys can be dumb, help him.

This weekend is FOR YOU. It’s time to DANCE! It’s time to LAUGH! It’s time to RELAX. Let’s dooo this  BESTIE <3

Wisdomist Wednesday : Be Happy

70fdb123286beeaee96f19157a77ab5dBe Happy.

It’s a choice.

Things don’t make people happy.

Situations don’t define your happiness.

People have no right to have the power over your feelings.

It’s a choice.

Your choice.

Choose to be happy today, choose to spread happiness.

Don’t focus on that which is easy to complain about, instead reassess what good will come from it.

It’s a tough lesson, one that I think many struggle with … even me. Especially me.

It’s the perfectionist in me.

But I think the trick is, acceptance; accepting what you can control and realizing that the world isn’t on your shoulders.

Accept, that you have a lot to be thankful for – that somewhere out there someone is in fact wishing for your worst day.

Today, choose to be happy.

Choose to smile, and sparkle the world with your laugh.
