Short & Sweet: A List for Living Life Now...

Sweater- HM
Shorts- Old Navy
Sunday afternoon walk to a park... there are few moments that are as blissful as summer weather mixed with hand holding and a mini photo shoot...  Doing this blogging thing has become more than I ever imagined it would be... in only a few short months... Sometimes larger than I think I can handle and I'm certain that pretty soon it will be evident that I don't know what the heck I'm doing... Shh.. don't tell anyone.. 
Got to get a Media Kit together.. 
Must complete the branding process...
 Oh yeah, more outfit posts...  
Commission a blog design..
Get business cards...
Create a business plan...
Start selling advertising...
Buy my own domain... sheesh....#bloggerproblems

Just the ongoing list in my head,... Geez, those lists that we ladies have will never disappear... they just grow...  and if your like me, real life passes you by while obsessing over the never ending items that "must get done".. Well, here is my "live life now" list... 
  • Laugh often... let's face it I'm hilarious and sometimes even on purpose...
  • When in doubt paint your nails....the house needed to smell like nail polish anyways...
  • Tell someone that you love them... they need to hear it and you need to say it...
  • Wear high heels while doing menial tasks.. your welcome Trader Joes... this one is for you...
  • Pop open some Champagne, just because it's Tuesday..
  • Learn how to just be, instead of do...
  • Smile, it will make you feel better... the best exercise created..
  • Make a list of all you are grateful for and post it on your mirror to be seen every morning... 
  • Instead of the regular ol coffee, try a cappuccino and pretend your in Europe.. that's what I do...
  • Be silly... seriousness is soooo overrated.. 
  • Take walks... summer nights are made for walkin....
  • Hold hands... still the best...
  • Accessorize! This, is such a great trick for any blah outfit to receive an instant face lift......
  • Take naps... why you ask? duh... it's a nap!  Do people still say "duh"?
  • Outdoor movies in the park... honestly, it's too much fun...
  • Forgive.. people will hurt you and they may never deserve your trust again but forgiving someone releases your soul to fly again...
  • Dance in your living room... my sincere apologies to the guy that lives below us...
  • Have more hope in your thoughts than fear...
Lastly... Dream of someday while being grateful for today...  it's not about giving up on the "to do" list but more about letting life be the bigger list.. the bigger priority.. and all those other things will happen with hard work and determination but also joy... and who doesn't want more of that?
