Today was fun! I had a GC to Borders and since this town only has one of those stupid Border's Express stores we went to The Forum in Carlsbad, a bunch of high end stores off El Camino Real. I'd never been before. It was nice. Used my GC at Borders I bought Grey's Anatomy Season 1 on DVD, the 1985 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, and an absolutely awesome soup cookbook... I can't wait to try some of the recipes. After Borders we went to Sur La Table. Best. store. EVER. I seriously wanted everything. I'd be scary if I was rich. We walked around all the other stores trying yummy lotions. The Lemon Ginger at Anthropologie was a stand-out. The only other thing purchased was a new hair dryer. It's blue. I love it. I've been using a old, weak red (yuck) one since my favorite dryer tried to electrocute me a few months back. So after the shopping we headed over to the beach where we fed seagulls and talked to a man from Missouri about his beagles. The water was so blue and the weather was perfect. On the way home I picked up more cherries because I am obsessed with cherries right now. I still feel like crap remnants of yesterday's migraine still remain. But despite my gnarly head it was a nice day.

Good advice

Whatever's happened to make you unhappy, let it go! It's in the past and none of that matters anymore. You've got a future ahead of you and only you can make it bright.

Accept that some people will hurt you. It happens to all of us. It's part of life and we have to learn to deal with it. It's those who care about us and only want what's best for us that matter.

Look around you and appreciate the things you DO have instead of focusing on those you don't. No matter how little you think you have, if you're able to sit at a computer and read this, then trust me, there are people not far from you who are far worse off than you are!

Keep a positive outlook regardless of what life throws at you and you'll stand a far better chance of dealing with your problems and enjoying the time you've been given to spend on earth.
