If its not Friday, dance anyway.

I once received a mini- index notecard spiral from two of my best friends, Lyndsie and Angie at random. The first page inside said;
 "Let this be a whole notebook of encouragement. Write verses, quotes, lyrics, ideas, whatever it is that makes you happy. Take this book out at random and remember why you were put on this Earth. You have a purpose."

I kept it in my purse for a while, sometimes taking it out and dwelling on the awesome truth inside, and then stuck it inside of my desk at home... today I remembered how awesome this little booklet really was, and so I pulled it out. Lucky for me, some of the pages had been filled in by them already. My favorite quote being; 
"spend time with God for the pure purpose of being in His company. He can brighten the dullest of gray days. He can add sparkle to the routines of daily life".

I sit here today, finding myself fumbling through old pins I once saved on Pinterest, to fill this book up with my own inspiration.

So if you are needing some encouragement today, maybe a laugh, a good quote, or a funny picture... you have come to the right place!

- If its not Friday, dance anyway. (I may or may not have just made that up, and yep... I love it)


- Always be kinder than you feel.

- Do something good, just for the heck of it.

- If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough!


- There is more mercy in Christ, than sin in us.

- Let your past make you better, not bitter.

Oh Zooey Deschanel, I love you.
- The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14

- A smile is the most BEAUTIFUL curve on a woman's body.

- A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.


- A person who is nice to you, but not nice to the waiter, is not a nice person. (words to live by, ladies, words to live by.)

- No one is in charge of your happiness but YOU.

SO there you have it. I hope I could make you smile on this random Wednesday, ladies. I love you all and am SO happy to have each and every one of you come back daily to read what I have to ramble about. 

Stay classy!
Linking up today with gorgeous miss Shanna;
