Red Boots and Why You Should Find a Reason to Smile

"Sometimes Joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

I love this quote by Thich Nhat Hanh.  We always think that when we're happy we smile, but sometimes, when we smile it makes us happy.  It's about being responsible for how you feel and the first step is realizing that you can control how you feel.  Cara Alwill Leyba of the blog The Champagne Diet calls it "becoming intimate with your intuition".  Your thoughts are a reflection of your emotions so why not become aware of your thoughts and gain control of your emotions.  Smiles aren't a reflection of a perfect life, but a reflection of someone who has found that they can smile even when life is challenging.  If you can find a reason to smile when things aren't going so well, you will find a shift in energy and things will get better.  Remember that you are in charge of creating the life you want and it starts with how you feel!  Look for reasons to smile today!   It would mean so much to me if you would leave a comment below and tell me what makes you smile!

"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles."

Red Booties

I will have to admit that these red boots from Rag and Bone (similar here and in camel here) make me smile!  I got them last year and I'm going to be wearing them all winter long.  I paired them with a blouse from Loft that is only $59.50 and dark skinny Frame Denim jeans.  I've started buying cropped jeans for the most part because I'm short and they look better with booties.  These are the perfect length without hemming.  I also really love this this velvet tie back top!
