Finding “Bad Wolf” graffiti in the bathroom at my favorite coffee shop. Somewhere nearby, there must be a TARDIS!

Usually people think about going to Paris and falling in love with someone else, but this lovely article will make you understand how to fall in love with yourself no matter where you are.

This list made me laugh because it’s so true: 10 People You’ll Meet in Every Coffee Shop.

Feelin’ Good playlist on Spotify: some great soul music to get you going. All upbeat and all awesome.

Spending time with family and snuggles from a little ball of fur.

Viewing art at the Dali museum, learning about the history of the artist and the meaning behind his works and taking advantage of the exhibit about Andy Warhol: Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality. Both men pushed the boundaries of the definition of art and both men cultivated dynamic, mysterious, and over-the-top personas. Absolutely fascinating. And totally inspirational.

Having a lovely Cuban meal at Columbia restaurant with one of the best key lime pies and one of the best espressos ever.

Reading and thinking about healthy eating and making an effort to follow a plan. Time to embrace real food, get rid of the processed stuff, and get back into the exercise. I see lots of salads and fruit in my future. And a lot more protein than I have been eating. Also, more healthy fats. More water, less sugar. It’s time to take charge and treat myself right.

I decided a little over a month ago to make Saturday MY day. It’s my day to get things done and work towards goals. I’m starting my day with learning about coding, web design, and web development, working on WordPress or CSS. After that, I’m setting aside a little time to clean my abode or run errands – do the things I never make time for during the week – like scrubbing the shower, tidying my clothes, or getting my car an oil change. And after lunch, I’m making a date with myself for a couple hours of creative time. This time is strictly set aside not to be structured. I can do whatever I want for three hours, so long as it involved exercising my creative mind. Perhaps it’s some writing or maybe I’ll paint or work on a collage or do a home decor DIY project. Regardless, it’s time just to be by myself and work on some type of art. I am making a pledge to myself that the television will not go on. And while reading is a great way to spend time on a day off, I will make time for that in the evenings, not during this time. This time is especially for spiritual and creative growth.

Getting totally lost in a book. This time it was Peach Pies and Alibis by Ellery Adams. Deliciously mysterious. Love, death, magic, tragedy, and scrumptious pies (with recipes!) – what more could you want?! Even better than the first in the series in my opinion. Also, if you’d like to add me on GoodReads, you can find me here.

Life Lesson from Shauna of Nubby Twiglet: Stop Overthinking It. As a Virgo, I tend to do this, too. I think it’s part of our nature to analyze and contemplate. While some thinking is good, sometimes you just have to go for it. As Shauna said, “The bottom line? We felt good about it so we just went for it.” I’m vowing here and now that when I feel strongly about something, I’m just going for it.
