“This morning as I left the house, there was an uncharacteristic hint – just a hint – of crispness in the air. No, the frost wasn’t on the pumpkin just yet. It’s still dead-center August in the Southeast, in the midst of what may be the most ferociously hot summer we’ve ever experienced outside of Houston. Yet it was possible to feel the coming change, the inevitable turn of the seasons.”—

“This is your life. Find a passion and pursue it. Fall in love. Dream big. Drink wine, eat great food, and spend quality time with good friends. Laugh everyday. Believe in magic, miracles, and fairy tales. Tell stories. Reminisce about the good old days, but look with optimism to the future. Travel often. Learn more. Be creative. Spend time with people you admire. Seize opportunities where they reveal themselves. Love with all your heart. Never give up. Do what you love. Be true to who you are. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. Spend time with family. Forgive even when it’s hard. Smile often. Be grateful. Follow your dreams. Try new things. Work hard. Embrace change. Trust in yourself. Be nice to everyone. Be happy. Live for today. MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT.”—(via palmbeachgirl)
“You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.”—Elizabeth Taylor (via bourbonandpearls)
