We love the question posed on The Everygirl recently:
…imagine you have one blissful day to yourself, without work, school, or family-related responsibilities and obligations. What would you choose to do? Would you wake up to sunshine streaming through the window and indulge in breakfast nestled in bed to begin the day? Or, would you work up a sweat at the gym and then sip on refreshing margaritas, nosh on tilapia tacos, and catch up on girl talk at your favorite bar? Maybe you would prefer to sit on a sun-drenched porch and revisit your beloved paperback novels for an entire afternoon.
And in other “feel good” internet findings, a recent post from Tiny Buddha caught our eye: Make Sure You’ll Smile When You Look Back on Your Life.
