Aside


Those of you who know me well know that I am only slightly obsessed with Drew Barrymore. Something about her free spirit and sweet toughness makes me take on life with a relaxed attitude while at the same time wanting to kick it in the mouth.
I love these new campaigns…and although I am a bit of a Mac groupie… Covergirl, you have my vote!




Aside

6,775,235,700

Is the number of people in the world.

Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to the ones they say they love. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls.

And one day, when my heart has healed, all I’ll need is one.

Aside


“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.” – Elizabeth Gilbert (writer)
