Friday's Facts

This week was quite a week. There were ups and downs, good things and bad things happened, but overall I really figured out that life is gonna be okay, eventually.
One of the greatest things I have learned in my 19 years so far is just to smile. Things stink sometimes, everything seems so unfair and hard but you just really have to smile. I'm not taking plaster on a big old fake smile as people remind you to think of all those who have less than you, I mean a real genuine smile. Find one good thing about everyday. Don't sweat the small things. Ignore silly drama, life just isn't worth it. Love and give your heart to all you can and learn from each day.
I thought I would share some of the things I have loved, or really thought about, this week.
First thing is Justin Timberlake's new album The 20/20 Experience. And this comes from a country loving girl. It takes a lot to break me out of my honky tonk shell and goodness am I glad that my dear friend shared it with me.
My favorite so far is Pusher Love Girl, I know sue me. Its so catchy though and if you turn it up just a little bit too loud on your car stereo I promise you a bumpin' good time. Not that I understand what I just said in the least. It sounds like fun though, right?
I love taking little gifts to my friends every time I visit. Celebrating, and overdoing, other people's birthdays is one of my favorite things to do and I figure presents never hurt at anytime of the year. I brought my sweet friend Lisa a canvas I had painted for her yesterday and was so glad to see the joy it brought her. It is the little things that we do for those we love that lets them know how much we appreciate them.
My friends may be small in number but they are so devoted and loving and thoughtful. They do things for me that I can never repay them for, nor express to them just how much things really mean to me. The smallest thing I can do to repay them is to visit them and bring little things to show them how much I care in return.

Take some time and play with some kids next week. You never realize how badly you needed a good game of make believe or a princess movie night until you are having one. Children are some of the greatest people on this earth and I truly believe that we have so much to learn from them as we attempt to teach them everything we know instead.
Happy Friday loves!
P.S. Think of me today, I have an interview for a "job" and fingers are crossed.
