Let that Hair Whip in the Wind Ya'll!


"I am living breathing freedom"
-Hiroko Sakai

I was driving home from taking my knuckleheads to school this morning and witnessed a dog leaning out the back seat window of a car.  As I was watching the dog's hair blowing in the wind, big huge smile on his face (or wind in his cheeks.it's how you look at it), and his chest out with his body standing bold without a care in the world a few things came over me.  First, the word carefree came to mind.  Second, the feeling of happiness (because I smiled), laughter (because he was so stinkn' cute he made me chuckle), and pleasure (because he looked like he was enjoying himself).  Third, the concept that acting carefree brings on the feeling of freedom.  And freedom mixed with happiness, laughter, and pleasure breeds contentment.  And contentment means an ease of mind which fuels the thought that life is yours and you can control it.  It's that simple.
 "For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For your last minute Christmas shopping please stop by Sevenly.  Charity of the week is Invisible Girl Project.  Let's help give young girls of India a chance to know what it feels like to be and feel carefree.  As of this posting over $18,000 has been raised this week.
