{everyday beautiful life: seven-eight}

Possibly one of the prettiest blogs around. Seven-Eight is a past {i heart} pick and run by Mimi who runs Mika78 stationary shop. Mimi has any eye for all that is pretty and inspiring. As our guest, she shares 5 things to make her and our lives everyday beautiful. {I love 4 & 5.}

1. {Old photos and letters from friends & family}

I’m preparing to move right now, so in the middle of all my crazy packing, I came across old photos, letters and cards I received throughout the years from friends and family. It was so nice to look back at my life through these mementos… it made me realize the importance of living a FULL life.

2. {Being inspired / the creative mind}

When I see creativity at its finest (design, packaging, photography, fashion, art, a movie, music, you name it), something inside of me just melts. There’s nothing quite like being inspired… it makes me deliriously happy!

3. {High heels}

Enough said. 😉

4. {A smile}

Sometimes when I walk down the street, someone will smile at me. Not in a weird “I’m about to kidnap you and sell your organs on the black market” kind of way, but a genuine, friendly smile. Strangely enough, it lifts my spirits. I don’t know why, but I guess it’s just that human connection. Now, whenever I see someone who looks down or sad, I try to smile at them (hoping they don’t think I’m about to kidnap them).

5. {Remembering to be better}

I love this quote. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives, huh? I’m definitely a victim of this, and I’ve found that the more I focus on myself, the unhappier I become. It’s so true that when you live for others, life has meaning far beyond what you could ever realize on your own. I think there’s so much hope and beauty in that.

  1. “Only a life lived for others is worth living.” I keep getting this message and similar versions thrown my way lately (or purposefully positioned where I will see it); in the movie Life as a House, in the movie Ghost Town, on my favourite show, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, in the book I’m reading Ëat, Pray, Love, in my back injury which happened at the same time I was complaining about too much housework, and now here! Me thinks it is time to take this in…Wendy xxx

  2. It’s the simple things in life that you forget or neglect, isn’t it? I mean, to smile, is easy…a reflex, even! I know I don’t feel like smiling every moment of every day, but to know that it could make someone feel just a little bit better for a brief moment, maybe when they really needed it, is enough for me to try to remember to smile. And, not in a crazy, stalkerish way…at least, I hope not!
