This morning started off great - Stacey and I did a 20 minute run, and hashed out relationship stuff, gave some advice, and started our day right!
Then I got into work and things kinda went downhill from there... I won't get into the boring details, but there was some arguing with certain family members, anger and crying, and a whole crap-load of frustration. It's been bringing me down all day, which bugs me that I let it do that - but I guess it happens.
Anyway, I told my awesome derby wife Quentin (Megan), about my shithole of a morning, and here's what she had to say:
"Sorry to hear you are having a shitty morning. How about a picture of a delicious strawberry to cheer you up?" (see attachment):
That's why I love this girl. :)
After that, I tried to remind myself of good things so that I could stop wallowing in my own frustrations. I reminded myself that John and I had a fantastic weekend, and welcomed a good friend back into town. We got to see a TON of awesome friends, sleep in, and relax.
I'm also down 11 pounds. Oh yeah, I may have mentioned that. ;)
Also, I'm going to do a recap of all of the money I HAVEN'T spent this month due to my spending fast. I've been keeping a chart for everything that I wanted to buy (but didn't), or things that I in general just had to say "no" to. It's been helping to give me a visual of how much money I could have spent, and how well I'm doing so far. I don't want to give away the surprise, but it's a pretty significant sum! It makes me happy and mad all at the same time because I never realized how much I was spending every month on things that I don't need!
Anyway, that's all for now. I hope your week is off to a good start! Just remember, don't let those shitty things get you down. I swear, when I think of it - there are way more good things in my life than those sucky things that seem to wash out everything else when they happen.
Also, Kendra and I are going to a free yoga class tonight. See? Just keeps getting better.
There you are, optimism! I missed you. ;)
