Guess whose baaaacckkk?!?!?! Okay once again I apologize for my lengthy absence, I got sick again and my immune system simply sucks. However it is another thing I just have to live with. I noticed a lot of new readers subscribing to my blog so welcome and ALSO thank for all the nominations for awards. Since I am so backed up with so many of them I may do a few as I keep blogging. I really appreciate the nominations and will mention the wonderful bloggers who took the time out to mention me in their blogs in my next post, I promise! Just need to organize a bit :(
OKAY! So even though I have been m.i.a and all I still did my fair share of hauling and gained some wonderful fashion, health and beauty inspiration and I cannot wait for those posts to start rolling out! Today however I decided to take a break from already taking a break hahaha, and share my simple Sunday.
I started reading The Fault Within Our Stars by John Green a week ago and literally just finished. Hmmm… where do I start? This book became so popular after the movie was released and I wanted to see what the hype was about and it definitely left me with some mixed feelings. For starters if you love books with some sarcasm and that weird kind of love story then read this. I would not say that the story line is over emotional but there are definitely moments that make you really think about life in general and makes you want to appreciate a lot of things. One thing this book is NOT is a sad sad story about cancer. It is about two cancer patients simply trying to live their life with normal feelings and situations. Don’t want to give much away but I do recommend this book!
Below are a few quotes I found insightful and ones that really connected with my life:
“Sometimes is seems the universe wants to be noticed. That’s what I believe. I believe the universe wants to be noticed I think the universe is improbably biased toward consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history to tell the universe that it- or my observation of it- is temporary?”
” I kept thinking there were two kinds of adults: There were Peter Van Houten- miserable creatures who scoured the earth in search of something to hurt. And then there were people like my parents, who walked around zombically, doing whatever they had to do to keep walking around.”
“According to Maslow, I was stuck on the second level of the pyramid, unable to feel secure in my health and therefore unable to reach for love and respect and art and whatever else, which is, of course, utter horeshit? The urge to make art or contemplate philosophy does not go away when you are sick. Those urges just become transfigured by illness.”
“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”
Also my simple make up of the day: (not the same make up in my selfie)
