Last week was a really really rough one. Busy at work. Air conditioning brokedownpalace. Clients unhappy. Stylists unhappy. Powers that be ambivalent. Money was tight…man. it was just…woof.
But then we got the weekend. And I got to see my Mom and Burl for a bit, and I had friends over to the yard and cooked out, and I laid in the sun with more friends on Sunday and made some pretty major life choices on Monday.
So, today, my Monday, heading back to work, I’m focusing NOT on the negative that is still swirling around, but on the Happy. Because it floats to the top…and can save you if you let it.
Buying new workout shoes with Chris, and talking about life afterwards over a great meal.
Getting out of the house and into the gym wearing said shoes.
Listening to Cindy talk about her trip, whilst oogling over my Bagel Boyfriend. (best. picture. ever.)
Having friends in the yard, new friends, old friends…nice.
Venting at happy hour and feeling unbelieveably lighter the next day.
watching True Blood.
swimming with friends.
seeing Eat Pray Love, and getting it. Really getting it.
Julia on the big screen…she’s my girl.
crying freely throughout a movie and not feeling stupid.
bonding with women about Life. Capital L
making a pretty serious life decision, and taking steps to put it into motion. gulp.
paying ALL of my bills yesterday. even the past due ones. and still having just a teensy bit left over.
Going to Sam’s and treating myself to my own copy of The Help. Which I will promptly loan out.
waking up this morning and seeing the rain.
the “cold front” that brought the temps down to the 90s. Amazing what that will do for a mood.
