when skies are grey

Things in my life have been a little grey lately, which you may have gathered from my lack of blogging. The holiday weekend was anything but relaxing and every aspect of my life seems to be running at a million miles per hour. I'm hoping things will settle down soon. I don't have much to report in the life de Allie but I would like to thank my incredible friends for constantly going above and beyond and keeping me afloat. And, of course, to you all for your constant support and positive vibes... thank you all for being my sunshine!

Lately, I've been really inspired by several posts around the blogosphere: one // two // three

And I'll leave you with a great quote by Joss Whedon, which you may remember from this post

“Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief.  It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead.”

Love that quote! Its good to remember all the positive aspects of pursuing our passions, even when they are kicking our butts!

I hope everything starts looking up!! (As I'm sure it will.) Watch one of your favorite movies or head to a bookstore, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and just be. Those are some of my instant life lifters. (Because sometimes its not just your mood, it's your whole darn life isn't so great.)

I'm sorry you've been going through a grey time in your life. I hope things get better very soon. "You are my sunshine..." is my all time favorite nursery rhyme.
