Pause for a moment to say thanks

I posted this quote a while ago: "Now and then it's good to pause in the pursuit of happiness and just be happy." And so today is my attempt to do that! And in doing so, I want to thank everyone who is a part of my life and has led me to "just be happy."

To everyone in my life: Thank you for the letters, the cards, the thoughtful emails, the kind phone calls, and the uplifting words. Thank you for the never-ending sense of security and love, and the unending friendship, joy, and positivity you have brought into my life. Thank you for all the memories, the laughter, the tears, the smiles, and the stories. Thank you for your support, the endless hours of listening or giving advice, and for everything you have done for me. Thank you for your gestures, big and small, and for all the kind things you have done that you may have thought were overlooked (they weren't.) I appreciate each and every individual who is a part of my life and I know that you are all the reason why I am able to put a smile on my face every day! It means the world to me.

Thank you for being wonderful people, friends, family members, classmates, roommates, sorority sisters, colleagues, coworkers, mentors, neighbors, and inspiring figures. Thank you for letting me "pause in the pursuit of happiness" to be happy for each and every one of you. I love you all!


  1. I find it amazing how a random act of kindness or a sincere thank you to someone who seldom hears it can make such a difference. Normally you can tell by the smile on the receiver's face.

  2. I saw a quote this afternoon that I thought you'd like; "No man has ever gone blind by looking on the bright side of life."

  3. how awesome:)
