from me to you

Unfortunately....I don't have time to do a whole picture blog post right now. I know, I know...I'm a horrible person for it. BUT! I just wanted to say, for every nice comment you leave, you are inspiring me in more ways than you know. I feel so lucky these days with how many of you are leaving the sweetest comments ever. I don't take a single comment for granted.

From me to you, take a second, RIGHT NOW, and smile :). You all know me as a happy person so I thought I'd share a tiny secret: Think about what good things are in front of you and count every blessing you can!! Even if it means the only thing to smile about is the fact that you are having a good hair day, or it's Sunday and you aren't working or at school, or you have the best sister in the world, or you are drinking a really good cup of coffee. Or maybe you can't say any of those things, but smile anyways. Because as I've figured out, even the act of smiling can leave you happy. Faking it can make it real! :)

Love,
Maggie

P.S. If you need smiling inspiration, take a look at these that perked me up this morning:)
(I love Taylor, don't worry!!!)

You are the cutest thing...
"I know I know I'm a horrible person" For not posting a "whole picture blog post"? Don't be ridiculous!
It's rainy outside today (so rare here this time of year) and I gotta say, your blog is like a little ray of sunshine :) Love that turtle photo most! So cute!

Hahah, That Taylor Swift picture made me LAUGH, and so did that sweet sweet sweet little turtle! Your blog is great! + thanks for your lovely comment! Panda xx
Oh, and I've just put a new post uo if you wnated to check it out.

Alex said...

Don't be daft - not posting as much doesn't make you a horrible person! I rather love your shorter, more whimsical posts.

If anything, I'm a horrible commenter. I don't know if it's your new layout but I can't get your blog to load on the work pc and that's where I do most of my commenting from, so I have to try and remember to do it when I get home and I'm AWFUL at remembering. So, I'm sorry!

ps - did the parcel ever arrive?

summertime dreams said...

your pics are definite smile makers :) hopefully I can pass on a smile to you too. I passed on a blog award to you, you can see all the details in my latest post!

Becca said...

Ha! Oh man. The turtle made me laugh out loud, and then call my brother and my mom in the room to laugh with me; and then I emailed it to Thomas so he could laugh as well.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Thanks Mags :)
