Happiness Is..

A breath of fresh air after been cooped up inside for far too long.

And when that air happens to be San Francisco and 70 degrees…well, that’s just the icing on the cake.

“Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.” – Erich Fromm

What’s been making you happy lately?

Be Fierce

This weekend went by way too fast. I went bowling with friends (my score was abysmal). Most of Sunday was spent catching up on sleep and hoping I don’t get sick. This week is San Francisco Social Media Week and I am looking forward to attending a few events. What do you have planned?

A Whole New Week

This weekend was equal parts eventful and relaxing. I went out and met new people, watched The Help and Ides of March (loved them both), took multiple naps, and painted my nails Essie’s Cocktail Bling (one of my new favorite colors). I was not ready for the weekend to end, but I am looking forward to a productive week ahead!

Just like I posted last week, I wanted to share some inspiring words that I’ve come across recently. Here’s hoping they help or inspire you in some way.

Have a great week ahead!

Start Your Week Off Right

This weekend was a nice and quiet. I was coerced into watching the Niners vs Giants game yesterday (the first football game I’ve seen in years) and it was a close one. I’m not a football fan, but I had to root for my city, San Francisco.

It’s too bad the Niners won’t be in the Super Bowl. I was looking forward to baking a red velvet cake for our annual Super Bowl party. Now I wonder: will there be any famous spouses or significant others in the audience that I can look forward to seeing?

I like starting off my week by reading or watching something inspirational or happy. For example, I once posted this video about the power of positive thinking.

Here are some inspirational words that have caught my eye on Pinterest.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

The Bright Side of Being Sick

I get migraines. My mom used to get them, so thanks to genetics I now get them every few months. For those that have never had a migraine I cannot describe just how debilitating it is. My mood completely changes, I can’t eat anything, and even the slightest soundĀ reverberatesĀ in my head. Medicine doesn’t help so all I can do in these instances is go to bed.

I awake the next morning almost feeling superhuman, like I can do anything. My head feels so light..it’s amazing! I love that feeling. After so many hours with a migraine, I forget how it feels to actually feel normal. It almost makes the migraine worth it to realize how great it is to be completely healthy. I say almost because I am not a masochist.

The point is it is awful to be sick. But it makes us appreciate the little things. Like how it feels to not have your head pounding, how nice it is to breathe through your nose, or being able to speak a sentence without having a coughing fit.

Hope you all have a happy, healthy day!
