I apologize for the lack of attention on my behalf to my beloved blog.  I have fully embraced the inevitable quarter life crisis as I picked up my neat little life in Boston & moved to the vibrant crazy New York City.  I chose to wing the whole thing, not a single solitary plan was made. The past three weeks of my life have been utterly crazy - & thankfully I have learned quite a bit about myself in that time. For one, I never realized how addicted to reality tv I was until I went without a tv for five days. I do not ever recommend trying it.  Secondly, I miss the littlest things I never took the time to appreciate.  Wine / tv dates with my girlfriends, strolling to my favorite coffee place in South Boston & then continuing my walk along the beach.  From here on out I hope to appreciate more, stop to smell the roses a little more often - & let my friends & girlfriends know how much they mean to me.

Elements of Style (you guys know she's my girl!) posted some "Lovely Advice" that upon reading - I instantly forwarded to my leading ladies. Worth taking notes!

    1. Drink plenty of water.
    2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
    3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
    4. Live with the 3 E’s – Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
    5. Play more games.
    6. Read more books than you did in 2010.
    7. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
    8. Sleep for 7 hours.
    9. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. & while you walk, smile.
    1. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
    2. Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
    3. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
    4. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
    5. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
    6. Dream more while you are awake.
    7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
    8. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
    9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
    10. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
    11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
    12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
    13. Smile and laugh more.
    14. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
    1. Call your family often.
    2. Each day give something good to others.

    5. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
    6. What other people think of you is none of your business.
    7. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
    1. Do the right thing!
    2. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
    3. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
    4. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
    5. The best is yet to come.
    6. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
