7 THINGS I CAN’T LIVE W/OUT

here are 7  things I LOVE and are very important in my day to day life!

  1. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

let’s be real here, God gave the world life, He gave us the breath of life and an eternal soul.. none of us would be alive w/out our beloved Lord and Savior!

2. FAMILY!!!!!

my FAMily is like fudge, a little sweet but can def be NUTS but i still love them unconditionally!

i believe families come in all shapes and sizes, it doesn’t matter if they’re your blood relatives or not because a family bond is so much more loving and strong then a physical tie.

3. FRIIIEEENNNNDSSSS!!!!!!

everyone has a friend whether they realize it or not, your family can be your friend, i’d even say that God is the ultimate bff, and even your dog or lizard can be your friend.

i absolutely love this acrostic from Pinterest. it says:

Fight for you

Respect you

Include you

Encourage you

Need you

Deserve you

Stand by you

 

and nooooow..onto a less serious note

3. FOod foooooddd

theres nothing better to have when you’re down or if youre partying, FOOD is always the perfect solution. some of my favorite delicious foods I LOve are steak, pasta (especially some good lobster mac and cheese 😍), mangos, pineapples, raspberries, pho, banh mi, froot loops, tacos, mint chocolate chip ice cream in a waffle cone(!!!!), brie cheese, Belgian waffles, Nutella strawberry crepes, Thai coconut soup, spring rolls, pomegranates, bacon, fried rice, popcorn, cotton candy, and everything else that exists!!!

 

fun kinda grossss fact: when i was in vancouver, canada, i ate moose heart tartar which is raw chopped up moose heart topped with a raw egg. not exactly delicious but really cool! :/

4. clothes & fashion!!!

i’m farrrrr from what a fashionista is, but i DEFFFF love shopping and attempting to follow trends! also finding bargain dealss ahhhhh!!!

LOVE OFF-THE-SHOULDER CLOTHING, SNEAKERS, CHOKERS, AND SWIMMIES!

 

5. MOVIESS & BOOKSS!

this means Barnes & Noble and my local public library are my favorite places ever!! i mean, come on, who doesn’t like free stuff which the library embodies and barnes and noble is amazing if you just want to roam the numerous aisles and sit down at their Starbucks cafe inside.

my favorite movie is Jurassic Park, hands down, one of the most well-made movies ever. thanks, Spielberg 

my favorite book is The Little Women, it’s a 800ish page book that makes you cry and laugh at the same time- an amazing classic!!!

6. TRAVEL

“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”- Anita Desai

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” – Gustave Flaubert

how true these quotes are, i consider traveling one of luxuries i am blessed with and it’s not because of the resorts or all the things you can buy there. it’s about learning, EMBRACING, and experiencing LIFE! its amazing and so cool to see how a different country functions and their unique culture. it gives you perspective and a sense of gratefulness for such a great God that has made all these wonderful people of the world.

7. dreams, hopes, aspirations!

as far as i can remember, my mind has always been set on my dreams and what i want for my future. when i was four, i wanted to be an artist. when i was nine, i wanted to be a lawyer (inspired by yours truly, Legally Blonde), and now i know that there are so many possibilities in life i can achieve!!!

i believe you can reach anything you set your mind to and especially love this (overused but so true) quote:

“Reach for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.”

having a goal in life, helps me move in the right direction and make the positive decisions so that i’m ensured a rewarding and joyful future!!! ♥♥♥♥♥

thanks for reading!! & keep a look out for the next post 🙂 – KATIE
