Happy Tweets Monday!

It IS a Happy Monday! That is why everything has an exclamation point following it!

Mondays really aren’t all that bad. Honestly, they are one of my favorite days of the week. A fresh start to the next seven days. Everything laid out in front of me, anything could happen. Sure, they may be busy, but my productivity is at an all-time high, as is my drive to be productive in other areas of my life (besides work). After a weekend of rest (usually), I am ready to edit those photos, complete my workout, eat clean, and be an overall awesome person.

And did I mention it’s the best because it’s time for me to post Happy Tweets from the past week? Read ’em and weep! Actually, read them and get EXCITED!

One Whole

As some of you know, I recently got engaged.

For the sake of this post, let’s name him Timmykins (if you ever interact with him, he would just LOVE for you to use this nickname. I promise).

Timmykins is wonderful. He is hard-working, talented, silly, and his hugs are the best. He is one of my biggest motivators, and he is very protective of me, while also being one of my biggest challenges (next to my sister, but that is another post 🙂 — a fabulous post, mind you! I love my sister!).

Was it love at first sight? No. We have known each other for 9 years.

Is he my ‘other half’? No. Arguably, that would be my sister (my identical twin sister).

Does he complete me? Nah.

And this is what I am trying to get to: I was a whole person before he came around and showed any interest in me. I wasn’t desperately seeking someone who would stop my heart ache and fill the void in my life.

You see, to say that – or even think that – would be my telling you that I couldn’t live a full life without someone else. But that is not true.

Actually, I was doing pretty damn well by myself. I went to school where I wanted to go, studied abroad, attended film festivals and was internationally acclaimed for a short film that my sister and I made. I was moving in a zig-zagged line towards all of my goals and dreams in life.

And, guess what? I still am.

Sometimes Timmykins is a distraction. Sometimes we would rather watch a movie or go ice skating than research production techniques or work on a certificate class. But he doesn’t distract me from my end goals. He is a happy distraction that also motivates me, and he adds a little color to my life.

I am elated that he has decided to keep me around, as well as share the rest of his life with me. But, could we live our lives separately? Physically, yes.

It’s just not ideal.

Do YOU feel whole on your own? What makes you feel whole, gives you purpose?

Please share, and have a Happy Day, Happy People!

Happy Tweets Wk. 4/5

No, this week will not last 4/5 of it’s normal 5 day work week (though, don’t we ALL wish that was the case?). In the wake of a family death last week, I neglected to bring you Week 4 of Happy Tweets, so hopefully this week will make up for that.

If not, then I credit this idea to my sister. Happy Monday, Happy People!

PS-If I have started to repeat tweets, it’s not because I forgot that I shared them previously, it is because they are worth repeating, dammit! 🙂

Dove Real Beauty Series: You Are More Beautiful Than You Think


This experiment shows a forensics sketch artist sketching women as they describe themselves – without ever seeing them. Then, he asks others to describe these women. The results are ASTOUNDING.

How do you see yourself? Does this reflect your attitude? Are you happy with your appearance?

You should be. Get happy.
