Five thoughts that caught my eye this week & my thoughts on those thoughts. Your thoughts?


1. And it's also a waste of time and either centers on things we can't control or things that will likely never happen. I know we feel we can't help it sometimes, but we should actively try to. 

2. Word.

3. This is huge. Nothing is forever and no one lives forever, so don't depend on one thing or person to bring you happiness. Find it in many things and first, within yourself.

4. Sometimes we put a lot of road blocks in front of ourselves. Happiness is pretty simple. Well, it can be, if we let it.

5. Where's the fifth thought? It's here. It's cake. Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing, to be exact. It's from Bri at Deliciously Active and I've been feeling the need to make it happen at my house.

Do you see why I must make it?

Have a great weekend friends!

  1. I just self administered an enema, and now I want that chocolate cake! LOL LOL

    I love all these quotes, but I think it's number 4 that's my fave. So often we lose sight of the little things in life that make such an exponential impact of our happiness. Happy Friday <3 <3

  2. I worry to much, usually about forget things. So silly. Happiness really is simple, we get in out own ways too often. Give me cake!!!

  3. #1 is awesome! I've never thought about it that way, but if we were confident in ourselves, there would be a whole lot less to worry about. But, of course, there's also tons of things outside of our control. They're all good quotes, but I'm finding #1 and #3 the most inspiring right now.

  4. Ahhh yes, in the words of Jewel "And not to worry cause worry is wasteful and useless in times like these."

    And yes, happiness can be the most simple of things! We need to stop complicating EVERYTHING in our lives! It really isn't that complicated!

    Have a great weekend my friend, and enjoy that cake!

  5. Worry is my enemy, I try to stop because I know it's pointless yet I catch myself doing it all the time!

  6. I like reading quotes these days - both funny and deep. That cake looks to die for. I can't remember the last time I had cake.

  7. #4 -- SUPPORT. people always over-complicate things when there's no need for it. take a step back, look at all that you have and be content.

  12. Okay, one that cake looks amazing! And to the wearing thing is possibly my worst trait I was up at 3:30 in the morning this morning worrying about stuff that I have no control over! Why do I do this to myself?!

  20. Yesterday a random positive thought popped into my head and I kept repeating it to myself over and over: "EVERY day is a special occasion." :)

  21. My blog would be monetized out the wazoo if only I didn't listen to #2.

  22. That cake looks so fucking good - Makes me regret throwing out that snickerdoodle ice cream combo earlier but ugh all the sugar.. so much fullness. I love #2 - people just need to learn to stfu sometimes and that's a great statement! Have a great one Stephanie and send me some cake :P -Iva

  23. Aww steph I saw this quote the other day "worrying doesnt take away tomorrows troubles, it takes away today's peace" and your first quote reminds me of that! Love this post and that cake ... yum!

  24. All excellent thoughts that people should dwell on more often! I have a friend who is a 24/7 worrier. It makes me crazy. I'm constantly telling her to chill out and let the chips fall where they may. She can't.
