I wanted to share this powerful quote with you all (this is me hoping that more than 1 person reads this, of course). Red poppies are also some of my favorite flowers so I really love this print overall.
I think it's important to remember that we are all about as happy as we make up our minds to be, because life isn't perfect. I've had people assume that my life is all peaches + peonies (although it sounds pretty wonderful, doesn't it?), but that's far from the truth. Just like everyone, I have my hard days and boring, routine days, but naturally those aren't the things I usually share. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I'll talk about yard work or going to the gym - those things aren't very luxurious, but that's real life. However, there is beauty in the things that we see and do every day. It's important to remember that we all have up's and down's, but that how we decide to view each moment will really make a difference.
The most vital thing is trying to look at things with a positive mind frame: remembering not to judge others, believing in karma, and trying to smile (proof that smiling is good for you). I've noticed lately that the more good energy I put into the world, others, and myself really does tend to produce more positivity in return.
And for those days that are more challenging, there's always wine...
