Girls and Their Favorite Things...
While it's said that boys like their toys, it's also said that girls like their favorite things. Sunshine likes her toys and her things. I'm not greedy it's just that some of my toys are my things.
The reasons to appreciate your favorite things are endless. Here are just a few reasons!
- They make you smile or laugh
- They offer comfort and ease
- They make you feel good about yourself
- They taste yummy
- They make you feel pretty
- They make you think
- They smell good
- They help you relax
- They are handy and dandy
Some of you might remember Oprah's Favorite Things. During these shows the viewers at home were green with envy. The audience guests were able to tote their gifts home with them. What a treat that was for them! I so wanted to be one of those audience members!

Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun
My suggestion to you: Make a list of your favorite things and take the time to enjoy them. Remember to take time out for yourself.
You are special. You are important. Once in a while you just have to say "The heck with it" and just "be here now" and enjoy the moment.
My challenge to you is to at least once a day, if even for 30 minutes...think of YOU!
My favorite Oprah quote in honor of her many "Favorite Things" shows: Before you agree to do anything that might add even the smallest amount of stress to your life, ask yourself: What is my truest intention? Give yourself time to let a yes resound within you. When it's right, I guarantee that your entire body will feel it.
~~~Keep on shining~~~
Girls like to party!
