♥ Thoughts

You can't force people to be mature. They have to want to be mature and then take steps toward growth. All you can do is wait patiently and cheer the day when they finally put on grown-up pants and be an adult.

Twenty-six days until my birthday. Just sayin'.

Babies are everywhere and I couldn't be more happy. I get to love on alllll of them when they're around. I get to smell them and remember what it was like to have my own little grunting infant- without the mess or the stress of being a newbie mama.

I heart stackable rings. I do. They're so vintage and awesome.

"Life exists for the love of music or beautiful things." -G. K. Chesterton

Sometimes I wish my life played out like the movie Sliding Doors (with Gwyneth Paltrow) and I could tweak little things here and there to see how they would affect my future. Just for the fun of it. Of course, this would all be a pre-showing and I'd get to choose which version I liked best before allowing it to actually become public and real.

I've said it once, I'll say it again: Sea Lion Woman by Feist rocks my freaking face off.

It seems like my creativity has been ebbing and flowing in a really random pattern, lately. And I can't put my finger on the reason why- but I haven't been able to write and craft or make jewelry at the same time. I have to do one or the other for short seasons of time. Weird.

"There is no justification without sanctification; no forgiveness without renewal of life; no real faith from which the fruits of new obedience do not grow." -Martin Luther

Here's an idea: let's mix up all of our holidays! We can have a July 4th feast, play with pretty sparklers on Christmas, set up a tree for Easter, swap presents for President's Day, give chocolate roses for Thanksgiving. Have I stumbled upon a new, wacky tradition?

I keep having dreams of being pregnant- maybe because I'm surrounded by babies. Or maybe because they make my subconscious happy? I need a modern-day Daniel. Or I need to stop eating cheese pizza before bed.

Oh man, is it so much better to just let things out than to keep them bottled up. The heart can't flourish when it's crowded by angst and negative feelings. It's so so so so important to have people filling up your life who are able to lend an ear (or thumbs? I guess, since we're in a texting era) and be the sunshine that breaks apart the gloomy clouds.

Aaaaand end.

I have that quote on my desktop; it's my favorite. Well, one of them, lol. A good reminder daily, if nothing else.

Loveyourface. And your ponderings.
