It’s the Little Things Thursday #4

It is insane how quickly I have fallen in love with blogging over the past month,  I can’t believe it took me this long on my journey to start it.  It’s just so fun. I can’t really think of a better word for it at the moment given my ‘I just spent 2 hours on a phone call with a support desk I can’t deal with words  right now’ state.  Plus, for someone with thoughts going through her head at all hours of the day, I like to word vomit sometimes and blogging rocks for that– OK, I promise I don’t vomit words at you, I think about them, the term just sounded cool.  TRUE STORY: just two weekends ago I was road tripping home from Boston alone.  It was a 6 hour drive and my friend Sarah suggested I download some podcasts.  So, I did.  But me, being me, of course downloaded the most high class type A podcasts I could find: maximizing your potential, mastering an online business, social media community building, you get the picture.  Anyway, long story short, I had so many thoughts and ideas running through my head stimulated by these podcasts that I physically had to pull over and put some of them into action because I thought I might explode.  Picture me at a Dunkin Donuts in the middle of nowhere furiously typing away at my computer. Yes, that happened. Don’t worry, I bought coffee.


Moral of the story: I love blogging.  Now moving on to this week’s It’s The Little Thing’s post where I share a few small things that made me smile over the past week.  For me, acknowledging even the littlest things helps me keep my YouMakeYou® mindset strong through positive vibes and pure life enjoyment.  I go into more detail on the first week’s post, but I challenge you to do this with me!


  1. Pulling the first all nighter of my life to see the sunrise from a gorge on campus.  It was rough the following day, but the memories withstand it all.

2. Trying the real local Purity Ice Cream for the first time because I remembered to bring Lactaid and didn’t have to order the soy based! SHIT’S GOOD.

3. Being able to have an intellectual conversation with a friend.

4. Finding new running trails that end up at waterfalls like this one.

5.  Frozen bananas and Jif Peanut Butter.

6. YouMakeYou hit 35k on Instagram, WHAT!? And to show my thanks for each of you I am doing a giveaway with Quest Nutrition where 5 of you have the chance to win a box of their newest bar: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. Check it out.

I want to know:
