This quote nicely expands on my life motto, 'live joyfully' - or at least how I view it.  


I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don't want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.

So. This is me trying to put on a happy face when my ribs hurt.

It is also me trying to put on a happy face when I realize that while the skirt is comfortable and swishes when I walk (lovely side slits) and is useful when when my legs are covered in bruises (I swear chairs just ATTACK me sometimes), it is ... just too long. I don't think it's as bad as this picture makes it look, but I still think I need to chop a whole lot of inches off of this.

But for now, I think I'd just rather go to bed.
