Happy Quote Friday everyone!

It’s been a whirlwind of a week, as I still feel like I’m lagging behind mentally and physically from last weekend’s Road Trip, and at the same time, it’s been a taxing week emotionally for some close friends and family (including my sister Jess), so I thought this quote today kind of touches on everything I would ever wish and hope for, for those people and for me, personally as well:

“This is my wish for you…

Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

All of these things – faith, laughter, believing, confidence, patience and love all lend to one big thing – a complete and happy life.

It’s almost a balancing act of feelings and I’m big on the balance these days, and want it so badly for others, just as I want it for myself, and while balance is differently defined for everyone (I’ve had a few conversations on this very topic this week, as some define balance as the opposite of what I crave – order and organization vs. chaos and in a way, disorganization), it certainly adds a level of completeness to life, doesn’t it?

For all of the loose ends, desires, wants, and needs, there’s something to be said for fighting for what you want and learning along the way. This is what drives me, keeps me passionate and makes life feel complete to me, even when I don’t always think it is.

When I am missing love.

When I wish I was in a different place career-wise.

When I have a fat day.

When I’m feeling broke.

When I’m frustrated for those I love.

These are challenges, but I get comfort in knowing that they are all temporary and I am in power of changing whatever is missing in my life or whatever is challenging me.

Short post today as I just had a few thoughts to share, and just love this quote as it speaks to me on several levels, but I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and if you are struggling, have comfort in knowing that with a little faith, a little (or a lot!) of confidence and patience, life will feel more complete.

Happy Friday! I am off to Maine for the weekend and am looking forward to re-entering that state of bliss I miss so dearly. Cheers!
