On The Line | No. 38

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all had a safe and fun holiday celebrating America's birthday. A nice little bonus was that it gave some of us a short work week like myself and I can't complain about that. I was supposed to use last weekend to get a bunch of sh*t done but that didn't happen so that's my plan for today along with prepping for a little vacation out west. What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

What do you think of today's On The Line words of wisdom?

Your Mood Shouldn't Dictate Your Manners. I think we are all guilty of letting our moods dictate our life and especially our manners. I know I do. When I'm in a bad mood or feeling stressed from various aspects of my life I easily let it take over. Have you noticed that when you are feeling great and having an awesome day, you tend be kinder, nicer, and more personable to the people in our lives and even strangers. People can feel that happy energy radiating from you. The same holds true for when we are feeling the exact opposite. We all have bad days, weeks, and months. It's life, sh*t happens. We are all learning as we go. However, the simplest 'Thank You' even when you feel angry, sad, or mad can have a positive effect on the person receiving it. They too might also be dealing with some sh*t. Manners don't have bad days. Let's all show everyone some kindness, love, and respect. Pay it forward because you never know when you might also need it.

 
 

Around The Web

The internet is full of awesome, beautiful, and strange things; wouldn't you agree? I'm pulling my favs and sharing them with you.  I've rounded up my top loved links from stories, recipes, style, animal cuteness...basically anything and everything. Some old, some new, some you may have already seen but nonetheless something to take your mind off that daily grind.  So grab your cup of coffee or cocktail (it's never to early) and click away. Cheers.
