“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.”

“We can smile, breathe, walk, and eat our meals in a way that allows us to be in touch with the abundance of happiness that is available. We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.” – – Thich Nhat Hanh

Thick Soled

On my wish list this fall? An authentic pair of sturdy riding boots. If I have learned anything over my brief years of becoming a wondrous and helplessly devoted shopper, it’s to spend good money on your most sought-after items. Whether you are in the market for a thick, gold watch or a wool scarf, it is important to research your options. Attempting to save money by spending less on a cheap pair of want-t0-be-fancy shoes ultimately forces you to spend the same kind of money all over again when the last pair falls apart. Instead, save up your dollars and invest in a pair of boots that will last — in both style and wear.

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” – Eve Ensler

“Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.”
