Bit of Happy #144: A Sweet Saying

16 Apr

“If you live to be one hundred, I hope I live to be one hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
-Winnie the Pooh

A coworker of mine shared this quote with me not too long ago, and I thought it was too ADORABLE not to share with all of you.

And sorry for not posting on Friday and waiting until Saturday. Now that beautiful weather has hit my hometown, I’ve been absolutely miserable. It’s a very bittersweet couple of months. As much as I LOVE when the warmth of the sun begins to melt away all of the ice and snow from winter, spring also means allergies. And allergies, I don’t love. Not in the least bit. Thanks again for you patience!

I hope today’s quote warmed your heart just as it did mine. Have a GREAT rest of the weekend! Hopefully some of this rain will wash some of the pollen out of the air.

Bit of Happy #116: You-ER than YOU!

8 Mar

“Today you are you – that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is you-ER than you.”
-Dr. Suess

Though I didn’t realize it, my sister told me Dr. Suess Day was last week, Wednesday, March 2. Along with giving me that little tid-bit of information, she also gave me a great quote and her personal insight on what today’s Dr. Suess verse means to her!

“You may not know but the other day was Dr. Suess Day, and it brought up some great quotes – this happened to be my favorite. Sometimes it’s not easy to stick to your guns and go against the ‘norm.’ It’s much easier to just do what everyone else does to avoid criticism or feeling left out. But like the doctor says, “nobody is you-ER than you,” and it’s okay to be different. I’m the most comfortable being me, so you either love me or hate me, and I’m okay with that. Sometimes things that were written for five-year-olds still make the most sense.”

Certainly an adorable piece of advice put to a memorable rhyme, Dr. Suess does bring up a wonderful point. Yesterday, today, tomorrow, the next and the next day you will be you. Years down the road you will be you. In fact, there will never be a day of your life that you will be anyone but yourself. You may put on different masks and make decisions that aren’t necessarily your character, but ultimately, it’s still you. Just like it always will be.

So, learn to love the person you are! And be thee best person you can be. You know why? Because no one else on this planet can be any more you-ER than YOU!

Bit of Happy #100: A Starry Night

14 Feb

“If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you’ve made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

How lucky is it that Bit of Happy #100 happened to land on Valentine’s Day?! The day of showing love to everyone who means the most to you – your husband or wife, girlfriend or boyfriend, mother and father, children and grandchildren, family members, and even friends. It’s the day of having the right to be cheesy. The day of being able to show your true appreciation.

And to go with the cheese and lovey dovey-ness of Valentine’s Day, I chose to share one of my more mushy / adorably sweet quotes. The first time I read this quote it brought a smile to my face – a reaction making it definitely worthy of saving. Even though I feel like the true meaning of Valentine’s Day has been lost in all of the candy, chocolate and materialistic gifts, I still believe there are plenty who celebrate it solely to show how much love they have to share with the ones they care about most.

So incredibly pure and genuine, today’s quote, I’m sure, speaks for many Valentine’s Day lovers all over the world. It’s so special to find that one amazing person who can make you smile just by being in their presence, or when you are away from them, by the thoughts and memories that easily have the same effect. If you have found that special person, cherish and love every moment you have with them. And if you haven’t, it’s probably not too far down the road that he or she is waiting at the next light. With a little faith and patience, I believe love will find its way into everyone’s heart. You just have to be willing and open when it comes knocking on your door.

And on another note, Little Bits of Happy celebrates its 100th quote today, which makes today even MORE special! It has been an incredible journey so far, and I hope to be able to share many, many more quotes with all of you! A great, BIG thank you goes out to everyone who drops in and reads my posts, and a very special thank you goes to those who have taken the time out of each day to catch up on their daily dose of happy! Your support truly means the world to me, and I only hope to be able to give the world back to each of you through my daily entries – or at least a little inspiration!

Again, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone had a great day!
