today i believe...

... that there's nothing like pink lemonade to make summer feel real.

... that right now it might feel easier to hold on, but in the long run you'll be oh so glad you let go. 

... that without fear, you will never discover your strength. 

... that it's important to bear witness to a friend's struggle--because most days, all we really need is empathy. 

... that enjoying classic literature and celebrity gossip doesn't mean you're two-faced... it means you're well-rounded. 

... that sometimes all you need is a little breather. 

... that opening the windows--in your home, in your life--refreshes and renews like nothing else.

Totally agree with everything!! :)
Pink lemonade reminds me of summertime as a kid, when time seemed to stretch forever.
Opening your windows...yes, it's a great reminder.

I love your daily thoughts :)

These are all gorgeous. I completely agree with the liking celebrity gossip and classic literature one! This weekend, one of my girlfriends jokingly said, "You're so stupid for someone so smart" after I obsessed over celebrity drama and Wuthering Heights!

I agree with all of these. From pink lemonade to all we need is empathy. Thanks!

I especially appreciate the celeb gossip & lit one . . . I'm the same way as Saumya, I majored in English and did a masters in Creative Writing and I want to know exactly what Suri Cruise is wearing each week! haha.

Delightful :-). The only thing I could add is that fireflies make you appreciate each summertime moment...every time one glows it illuminates a uniquely delicious moment. Cheers!
