today i believe...

... that this searing summer heat is the perfect excuse for a giant glass of lemonade. or a big bowl of frozen yogurt. or both.

... that there are some really wonderful days and some really not-so-wonderful days--and you should do your best to find the beauty in all of them. 

... that a relationship can't reaffirm you until you've learned to reaffirm yourself.

... that I'm still--and forever will be--team aniston.

... that it's okay to ignore all the signs and just go with your gut.

... that confidence comes most easily not from looking a certain way or knowing certain people or having certain things, but from pursuing that certain passion so fully that your days just seem to snap into place.

... that luck exists, and chance exists, but hard work trumps both.
