Hey guys! I hope everyone’s having a good week so far. Mine’s been pretty busy and also pretty stressful! Things are very busy at work and with running and with other stuff in life right now, so I’ve been uber stressed- I won’t go into all the details online, as it’s a more personal matter.
That’s just how life is though- and I’m trying to find effective, positive ways to deal with my stress and remember that I have so many amazing friends there to help me. Sometimes it really helps to count your blessings and realize that no matter what you’re going through, you still have it better than so many others out there .
Since it’s Thursday, I’m linking up with A Complete Waste of Makeup for It’s Okay Thursday.
To go to bed at 9:30 and sleep until 7:30, then wake up ready to take on the world. Never underestimate the healing power of 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
To run a 5K race but secretly have more fun jumping in the post-race inflatables with the kiddos.
To be super excited about the Race for Taylor this weekend but also wish for a cool breeze. Let’s hope I don’t regret picking the 10K (longer) option over the 5K. If you’re in the Florence area, you should be running or walking it too… hint hint .
To laugh about breaking stuff. Two Saturdays ago, I broke my toaster heating up a waffle. Last Saturday, I broke a drink glass Clay and I bought on our honeymoon. I hope I don’t break anything this Saturday (as long as it’s not a broken bone or something, I think I’m okay).
To cry on a friend’s shoulder if you need to- and let them cry on yours when they need to. Or just hug and cry together. Sometimes a good cry helps.
To feel unhappy when track practice is called due to bad weather and wish the weather had been bad enough to call practice off before getting out there (or that the weather had just cooperated).
To just realize your Easter decorations are still up in your cubicle. Guess that shows how busy work is.
To *finally* donate the 4 trash bags full of clothes you no longer wear to charity… after they’ve been riding in your trunk for about 3 months.
