Summer's been crazy and for some reason I've been having difficulty uploading pics onto blogspot. So I finally decided to just write a post without pics.
If you hadn't notice smiles and laughter are a big theme here on my blog. For as depressing a person I feel like I am, I'm surprised people almost always describe me as joyful and passionate. I even had a friend ask me last semester, "how are you always so happy? I don't think I've ever seen you not smiling." haha something I wish I could say is true.... but I definitely know I'm not. Though I think we really do have a choice when it comes to being joyful.
Cause joy and happiness are two very different things, I may not be happy all the time, but I try to remain joyful and look at life optimistically.
So I'm gonna share a few of my favorite quotes (there are a ton more on my pinterest). These are a select few I have chosen to really take to heart.
