Ok, so I’ve been in a bit of a funk for a few days, reaching the lovely summit of me crying in my boss’ office yesterday over some “dumb-ass shit” as I am affectionately calling it today.
I believe I whined a total of 50 times yesterday alone, including statements like: “I feel like running away, only my knee hurts”, “lost my mojo” & the gold medal statement that went something along the lines of “no one understands me”. GAG ME!
A pretty big Pity Party was being held in my honor!
My knee has been bugging me for a little over a week, and I’ve been refusing to rest it. It really hurt in spin yesterday, and on top of the mood I was in, I was pretty upset and had to leave the gym. Riding is EXTREMELY important to me right now, so this was the final straw for me yesterday. I hit rock bottom.
Nothing could shake it. A great email from a friend, trying to cheer me up because she was concerned. BFF conversation was just me whining – poor girl. I couldn’t get excited about my kids and their gymnastics achievements that I went to see. I just shrugged and nodded at the 2 new bearded dragons that my husband surprised the kids with. I was just “there” at my meeting that I went to for one of the groups I strongly believe in. The staff recognition awards that were given out didn’t make me smile; all I could think about was “Jeez, at least one company TRULY values their employees”. It just pissed me off!
I got up this morning and was in a similar mood, but I at least wanted to kick it. So, I opened my laptop and opened TweetDeck – my fix.
This was the first post I read: Unexpected LoveBomb from @HeatherattheEO tweeting about @LoveFeast new post (who I am now following too) – I just flipped back and several other twitter friends are reading this post too – another sign that I was meant to see this post THIS morning.
It is a kick in the butt for me for several reasons:
- It is a feel good story about someone doing the right thing and treating others with respect and dignity – a lesson to us all
- These two homeless kids want to be together so badly that they are on the street. I have the love of my life in my nice warm bed every night.
- We can’t solve every problem, but there are SOME things that we can do to make the situation better. Instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself about what I CAN”T DO, I need to consider all the things – and some are GREAT things – that I CAN DO
I say again how amazing it is that if you open your mind and heart to possibilities, the Universe will find a way to speak to you. That happened this morning. I was meant to read this post this morning because it was what I needed. Thank you Universe and Thank you Chris Ann and Kristin at LoveFeast Table
