i encourage you to read these in order (1-4) to refresh your soul. I miss my grandma so much it hurts and reading these stories made me feel closer to her in a way…i only wish i had learned to put myself first sooner in life…i have so much to learn and I’ll take as much from Nicole’s grandma as I possibly can :)

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE HIM, can he be any cuter or sweeter?!?!?! <3<3<3
so we had a mini discussion about “formal fridays” (or “dress up fridays” whatever you prefer) anyway, i said i’d wear a dress if they wore ties or whatever then two of the guys commented that they’ve never seen me in a dress and one even suggested that I don’t own any! (my boss said this, he’s quite a jokester so i’m hoping he was only kidding) but that made me realize that it’s true, i never wear any of my dresses (i mean, i have an overflowing dresses-only closet that i recently organized - formal to casual) and i know me being cold ALL THE TIME has something to do with it. regardless, im gonna try to break that habit and wear one dress and/or skirt a week. i wear dresses out but there’s no reason i cant dress up during the week…so here goes, i’m gonna FOR SURE where at least one dress this week.
yes, you read that right…ESPN…Sports Center…The Espys…jolted me into place tonight. Now before you read this, make sure you read the link I posted to hellogiggles about being grateful. I’ll wait for you to read that and come back……..ready? so let’s seriously talk about how those hero segments during Sports Center just like yank on your heartstrings, wow. tonight i saw two segments - one during the espys and one during E:60 (think that’s what it’s called). i was numb while watching these stories about people and their fight and courage for life. i mean, i try to live a good life and be good to the people around me. i may be a jerk sometimes but my heart is always in the right place. but i don’t do enough. i don’t show the universe how grateful i am for the life that i have (see why i had you read the other article first??) i need to stop being a lazy ass and go volunteer like i always want to…go do good - pay it forward. i NEED to show the universe how truly happy i am with the life i’ve been given…it has never been an easy one but it’s been the type of life that has taught me to be stronger…and it continues to teach me things, daily. i am so grateful for being me. now i need to share that with others…i need to go visit sick kids, the homeless and the elderly and share my heart with these people. i always talk about doing it but now i have to start…go once a week on a weekend or whatever but i need to enrich my life and other people’s lives by doing so. i should not waste a second of my life because i need to realize how lucky i am to be able to imagine myself at 80 when others are given a few yrs of hope for life…i get chocked up typing that because i just get so angry. angry at how unfair diseases are that take away people far too early, angry at myself for having wasted 26 yrs when i could have done more, angry at all of us for living selfishly. it’s just time we turn that around… i hope you go watch the next video and feel how it made me feel…we need to be so grateful for what we’ve given, we really do
