Everything Is Inspiring ( Lots of Quotes & Pretty Photos )

Happy Friday, beebs!

I’m celebrating the end of the week in my sweatpants, attempting to make some healthy waffles, & getting some work done alllllll day. I may even add a few items to my Poshmark closet ( username is @paytonsartain ) if I’m feelin’ fancy.

I was trying to figure out how to center this post today, as y’all know I love a good posting topic, aside from the general “look how cute this dress is” & “go out and buy this because you need it.” Sometimes I like to talk about style/fashion, but most of the time, it’s truly a bore.

In this particular instance, it’s obvious this dress is bomb. I don’t need to explain the reasons why. I will say, however, that if you’re into elevated-boho styles, Fillyboo makes some of the dreamiest dresses & jumpsuits, and you need to peep those online.

Claire & I took these photos at sunrise during our some-what recent trip to Sedona, AZ. Getting images like this back from my friend/roommate/photographer ( she’s a 3-in-one deal, LOL ) makes me SO excited & grateful to have people like Claire in my life.

This has been a constant feeling lately: being grateful for the people I’ve surrounded myself with, as well as the life I’ve been able to create for myself in the last couple of years. For me, this is HUGE. I’ve never been the most positive person, to say the very MOST, LOL.

This mindset has been so constant, in fact, that I’ve been posting quotes on my Instagram stories surrounding gratitude and vivacity for life a lot, and y’all have been responding so positively to them! I’m an inspo quote maniac ( please see my Quotes board on Pinterest for evidence ), so I’ve decided that I’m going to share a number of pretty, thankful-for-life quotes with y’all today.

It’s the perfect end to the week, don’t ya think??

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.”

“then, she began to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. she was in love, by not with someone or something, she was in love with her life. and for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring.” – r.m. drake

“You know what? At the end of the day all that matters in that you’re lucky enough to be alive and that your friends and family are happy and healthy and lucky enough to be alive with you. It’s as simple as that.”

“Life’s as kind as you let it be.” -Charles Bukowski

“There is nothing prettier in the world than a girl in love with every breath she takes.” -Atticus

“Look around you. Appreciate what you have. Nothing will be the same in a year.”

“I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.” -Beau Taplin

“So here’s my advice: Study broadly and without fear. Learn a language if you can, because that will make your life more interesting. Read a little bit every day. But more importantly, surround yourself with people who you like and make cool stuff with them. In the end, what you do isn’t going to be nearly as interesting or important as who you do it with.” -John Green

Do y’all like posts like this?? Filled with pretty quotes from smart souls??

I figured I’d start sharing a few, as I spend most nights scouring Pinterest for words like these. For some reason, even the depressing quotes I find make me feel more calm & at home mentally.

Weird? Can anyone relate?

In case y’all missed yesterday’s post, I uploaded Part II of a WEEK IN MY LIFE AS A FULL-TIME BLOGGER! Finally. In this vlog, I took y’all along to events, meetings, & shared a few tips that I’ve picked up since I started blogging nearly 3 years ago.

Hope everyone has the best weekend! I’m headed home to Texas on Sunday, so I’m looking forward to the next few days so much! Should I do another VLOG at home?? Did y’all like the Texas vlog?

Kk, talk soon. xx
