wouldn't it be nice...

Wouldn't it be nice if we all looked as good as Sienna with dark roots?

Why is it considered to be a style in Hollywood, but a no-no in real life?

Wouldn't it be nice if we could be fit without working out so hard?
I mean, I have grown to actually - dare I say - like to work out.  But, what if we could just eat Girl Scout cookies and Pizza all the time and still be thin?

Wouldn't it be nice if every time we went to bed, we were guaranteed 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep?  OMG!

Wouldn't it be nice if we all gave $5 to charity instead of buying Starbucks for one day?
(Insert shout outs to Brittany and Angie)

Wouldn't it be nice if when we made more money, we stopped talking about how broke we are?
Ever noticed that?  No matter how much money people make, they're somehow always broke.

Wouldn't it be nice if we learned to live within our means and appreciate what we have instead of wanting more and more and more?

Wouldn't it be nice if we could all parade around like Christina Aguilera?

I literally have no idea what is on her head.
But, to be honest, I wish I had the guts to wear something so silly and feel hot and sassy.
[side note - Adam Levine is smokin' hot.]

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of pointing out someones flaws and bringing them down further than they probably already are, we decided we'd encourage them?

Wouldn't it be nice if traffic was non-existent?

Wouldn't it be nice if these dang braces didn't hurt?
Or if we had a magical way of fixing teeth instantly - Harry Potter style?

Wouldn't it be nice if kids were automatically potty trained at the age of 2?

All this stuff would be really nice.
But, wouldn't it be really nice if we all realized that life isn't so bad?
That some of these things are what make others extraordinary?
And that all of these things teach us something?

Wouldn't it be nice if we just learned the lesson?


  1. agree! & awh thanks girl for the shout out! :) I am trying to practice being more mindful & aware of all the goodness that surrounds me. yet i still *wish* i could get 8 hours of sleep total, w/o waking up or being awake for 2 hrs at a time! damn insomnia! lol and um yeh, adam levine is yummy! ;)

    1. we're only different in that i get woken up. if i didn't get woken up by a toddler regularly, i would sleep for days. adam makes me totally swoooooooooooon.
