Happy Thoughts

Because with happy thoughts and little fairy dust, we can learn to fly...


I feel like sometimes I over analyze, contemplate, and even spill my guts to the point that people may mistake my melancholy moments as how I perceive the world.

I like to write. I like to write so that people, including myself, will know that they aren't alone in how they feel. That its OK to be broken, hurt, get angry, have convictions, act like a fool, laugh uncontrollably, and sometimes even cry...

But having said this, today, I am just happy, and I want to share with you some things that make me happy. I encourage you to make a list today of things that bring a smile to your face. Because I think that sometimes we get so caught up in life, that we forget to "stop and smell the roses" so to speak. So here are my happy thoughts (in no specific order):

Jesus, Ridiculously amazing Jesus moments, Ivan, Holy Fire/Unashamed/drama, My Fam Bam, Getting paid, Lazy days, my friends (BTW you are the most amazing people in the world, for serious), My sunroof LOUD music and singing, Boots and scarves, Laughing til it hurts, a new book, surprises, good movies, finishing a good book, writing, texts or tweets that make me smile.. or even a good cry, naps, sugar free red bull, birthdays (not just mine), Laffy Taffy jokes, creativity, seeing shooting stars, playing in the rain, getting my hair done, going for walks, deep conversations, quality time with people I love, hugs, Doing random stuff like carving pumpkins or making gingerbread houses, getting letters or cards, when someone recognizes me (makes me feel famous, lol), driving around aimlessly, my future, my dreams, my hopes...

I am sure there is a lot more, but honestly, this is more than enough to be thankful for, and to feel happy about. I don't want to take the little things for granted... even in my worst days, I want to look back at this list and be able to remember exactly how I feel right now...

So maybe your in the midst of the most terrible day of your life, we all have those days. Life isn't perfect, but we have the ability to choose joy over fear. Because despite the bad, the terrible, the ugly, the heart-wrenching... we all have something to be thankful for. If nothing else, the fact that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and loves you so deeply and so unconditionally...

So go, right now and make a list. Comment on my blog, on my facebook wall, tweet me things that make you happy. Share your list with someone... anyone. Because someone might need to be reminded that even in the dark times, life is good.


"I will remain confident in this I will see the goodness of the Lord"

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
