Happiness is Mathematic

[[If you don't like the way that the life you live is changing-
isn't it just as obvious that you must live your life
to change the way you live?
Happiness is mathematic: that's ALL it is]]
-Talaam Acey

Yo, I'm in love with that quote. It's so simple, but it's so over looked and so true.

Though, it's barely February-I must say that 09' has conjured the most smiles out of me (in comparison to any other year). Really. And there's a high possibility that I'm wrong and this year is simply the year that I've decided to be more appreciative of every moment, but I'm loving it. All of it. I was going to post mad photos from the past few weeks and just highlight my life, but I opted against it. I'll give you this though:

Me, spitting "In Case You Were Wondering How to Love Me", last Thursday.

You know what? Let's just do a "Brandi's Life in 09' Catalog". It is my blog after all, why shouldn't I post pics of myself in all my glory (hehe). There's nothing remarkable about any of these photos. I'm just happy. I love the people they're taken with. Life is (almost) golden. There's always room for improvement. Scroll down now.

Me and Mr. Wilkins after Philalive. Love him.Me and Ari. Let me say that the smile on my face is similar to the one I used to make in 4th grade. She brings out my inner child, and it's so pleasant. We had an unplanned snowball battle (it was one on one and went beyond the term "fight") earlier this day that had me cracking up and left my backside soaking wet.Ellington's birthday party this weekend. It goes without saying that I love Zay. See that face? How could you deny him?
Last weekend was one of my (5) roommates birthday. I went through a lot in a short time to throw something together for her. Having her birthday/Dom's in the same week made me realize how important it is to let people know they're appreciated, because they both seemed so grateful for their gifts. Yay!
Fun in the snow with my roomies. This turned out to be more than we bargained for because random strangers began attacking us, but it was still "delightful".
How could you not appreciate this masterpiece of cheesecake? Yummy. We had actually went out for dessert. I don't think I've ever done that before. So, just going out to order sweets was a treat for me.
This was taken on Sunday by the water. Only in Philly does it snow one week than become beautiful outside the next. The view out here was breathtaking and so serene. Here's another:
Ok, I'm done. I might start doing weekly "recaps" as told through pictures. I like the way it looks. It's a nice lil' recollection of history. Anywho, I'm saying/showing all of this to say that I truly agree with the idea of the quote mentioned in the beginning. Happiness is mathematic. It's common sense. K.I.S.S: Keep It Simple, Stupid.

Really though. I wish I could say that I made drastic changes in 09 and everything just hit me all at once, but all the changes that occurred were gradual, and I'm just now reaping the rewards from most of them. The reward? Happiness. Contentment. You couldn't imagine how great of a gain it is, and it's so simple. Change is the easiest solution yet the hardest thing to inact, but o' once the wheels get a'turning...

  1. This post was like a soft flame and a side of hot chocolate. I'm so happy for you and your journey, and your words are very uplifting.

    It also reminds me that I need to eventually start a blog of my own. LOL I've been postponing it for years now, and you've witnessed the flight and crash of "Smart Stuff For Today." But yet there's no reason to pretend I don't have anything to offer. And from a distance you've taught me that.

    Anyway, good good good great stuff, hun.
    Keep it up, and keep smiling.
