Remember to embrace life's simple indulgences... treat yourself as good as you treat your friends with out any guilt. You deserve it! And what's keeping you from being good to yourself?? Linger in bed for a few extra moments, enjoy that feeling of laziness. Treat yourself to your favorite food - even dieters and health conscious readers can afford to indulge themselves to that piece of chocolate or slice of pizza every once in a while. It really won't hurt you...

Play, Play, Play and in case I forgot to tell you ummm... PLAY! Don't be so serious all the time, embrace your inner child... run under a sprinkler, splash thru a puddle, chase a butterfly, giggle and laugh, sing out loud, dance like a fool, spin around in circles,close your eyes and face the breeze.

Get excited about something - don't worry about pretenses and just let go! My God we're a bunch of uptight fools sometimes... Why? What do we have to prove? Why do we care what people think about us? I get excited about birthdays (as we all now) and Christmas and baseball in a few weeks and hell, even a good tv show or a fabulous book! When did we lose that childish exuberance? get it back... it's what keeps us young!

Laugh out loud... Live out loud -I use to try to tone down my laugh because it's so loud and boisterous... (hell , I'm loud and boisterous even when I'm not laughing...LOL I admit it) But then I realized that I wasn't laughing as much any more and realized what a waste of precious moments that was ... Now.... I laugh when I want to, and I don't hold it back at all - and it feels GORGEOUS!

So I dare you to cut and paste the line below and hang it on your computer. Use it to remind yourself as you sit there day after day that you need to lighten up, and enjoy & love your life - we only take this ride once - throw your hands up in the air and enjoy every moment of it!

So finally i've joined the literary world of blogging. Something i've been doing for years via e-mail but to only a limited few. I've fallen out of that habit and feel the difference in my psyche. Kind of like the ache i feel in my soul when i stay away from the ocean for too long. The positivity is waning, the attitude is turning sour and the life appreciation is not what it should be. And so i blog.

So many others telling the world of their life and sometimes I think i read them all. But lately i've been leaning towards the positive ones. While we can always use some snarkiness in our lives... the smiles are longer lasting. (but the snarkiness is fun see or crazydaysandnights on blogspot, and you'll get it)

I won't be able to tie down what exactly I will write about. So I will say this blog will be about a little of everything. Maybe when I write enough I will stop procrastinating and start that damn book i've been putting off. In the mean time i welcome your thoughts, your comments, your bitching.

Come along on the adventure... I welcome the company. Just buckle up and keep your hands inside the car please.
