Whacha doin' today?

We all have things in our lives that we wish would go away. So often we think, "I will be happy when..." The thing is, that if we do this, we forget to do things today to make the memories that we love looking back on. So my question is: Whacha doin' today? Do something you love to do today. Make a memory. Be happy.

Thank goodness for our imperfections

One of my favorite quotes from the movie Emma, is this one: "Perhaps it is our imperfections that make us so perfect for each other."

The reason I love this quote so much is because I think about it in the context of friends and family, not just for relationships or marriage, although it could still be applied.

One of the greatest things about being a human is that we can feel a range of emotions. We can be happy, sad, excited, content, angry, infuriated, irritable, loving, kind. We do things that make others happy and we do things that hurt or frustrate people.

Because we ALL do all of these things, it gives us the ability and reason to do the most important things : forgive, accept, and love.

 Maybe it really is our imperfections that makes us perfect for our friends and our families.
