Find Your Brightside

It's a beautiful Friday in Toronto but I can't help but notice I've been slightly on edge this whole week. Maybe it's because my cash flow has been slowly dwindling down a black hole or maybe it's because the thought of summer school creeping around the corner has once again turned my brain into mush. Well whatever it is, it's always important to try and pick yourself back up again and get out of that dangerous cycle of negativity. Today I will be going with my mom to the spa and even though we are already arguing as to when we should actually leave the house (I've been trying to delay it because I'm blogging as you can see), I am sure it will be a relaxing day! So whatever is bothering you today or has been recently, just take a deep breathe and exhale. I am a true believer of the power of positive thinking and a few smiles never hurt anyone. So in the most philosophical way I can say this don't worry, be happy xo

Sieze the day! Make it your own
Charlie Brown always seems to be so gloomy, but try concentrating on the good stuff and not the bad
Try snuggling up and reading a book in bed with your favourite dessert. Sometimes all you need is "me time"
Cozy down beside the one you love. Just a small amount body warmth can make anyone feel better. 
Nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it
Appreciate nature and all its beauty
Take photos of the things that make you happy. They'll act as reminders to always smile!

  38. Lovely post and absolutely gorgeous pictures. I think there’s huge merit in the message – there are so many things to be grateful for. Negativity definitely can be a cycle that we get stuck into, I’m certainly guilty of it myself. Taking the moment to really reflect on the things that matter the most to us and that we appreciate can really help :)
