A Glimpse of Heaven

Have you ever stopped and thought about what happens next? What happens after this life on earth? Death, heaven, reincarnation, elsewhere...? Where do we go? Who do we become?

Every once in a while, I feel I catch a glimpse of heaven in the sunset...

On my way home from volunteering tonight, I saw this beautiful sunset and caught a picture of it. Something in me feels that there is something more behind this sunset than gravity and the laws of the universe. I feel like I see a glimpse of heaven...

#1 In my heaven, I would curl up with this super comfy IKEA blanket (it actually is my favorite blanket) with a cup of coffee and books. I love whip cream, so I would put some on my cup of coffee or my hot chocolate. I am in love with Serendipity's Frozen Hot Chocolate. Oprah released the recipe: check it out! It is sooooo delicious and just perfect for a comfy night in.

#2 I only pictured 2 books, but I have three books on my heaven book list:
  1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven - a classic Mitch Albom novel about the people who teach you life lessons in heaven. This is a tear-jerker that will pull at your heartstrings, and make sure you check out the movie!
  2. Life's Golden Ticket - one of my favorite non non-fiction novels (BTW: a non non-fiction novel is a novel that deals with real life non-fiction advice in the form of a fiction novel). It is an amazing must-read novel about second chances and the circus.
  3. Elsewhere - probably my favorite books as a teen about what happens after life. A teen girl dies and goes to Elsewhere, in which the author tells an interesting, unique, and witty depiction about heaven and life after death.

Comfy, comfy, comfy clothes are my ultimate favorite things to wear after a long, stressful, and tiring day/week. I love to unwind in leggings and a comfy tee. To have a relaxing and cozy night pull your hair up in a cute top knot, wash your face with this awesome face exfoliating scrub, and paint your nails with this cool mint color (Essie's Mint Candy Apple). After you throw on fuzzy sock slippers, your night will be complete.

Take a break every once in a while - you deserve it :)

P.S. Play some soft, calming music. My favorites: Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Colbie Caillat, Adele, Mumford & Sons, The Script, Florence & The Machine, Fitz & The Tantrums, and The Goo Goo Dolls.
