My inspiration to blog this week? Absolutely non-existant.
It was another rough week. I’m not going to get into the details because I’m still not ready to delve into that (and I doubt I ever will be). Tears, anger, frustration…I’ve been dealing with it all. But, in no way am I looking for your sympathy. Despite all of the bad, I’m trying to remember how much good my life is filled with. Things could always be worse and I’m determined to stay as positive as possible.
Personally, I prefer to be alone when I’m upset. I’ve always been that way. When things get difficult, I automatically seclude myself. Not good. That only leaves me feeling more lonely and upset. So, after succumbing to the negativity for most of the week, I decided on Thursday night that I was over it…
Guess what? It worked.
Friday was the best day I’ve had in a really long time. My roommate and I started the morning off with a gorgeous hike, I had lunch with my grandma at one of my favorite vegan restaurants in the city (and ate my body weight in sweet-potato fries), treated myself to a caramel frappuccino at Starbucks before work (it’s Frap Happy Hour, after all!), and proceeded to have a fun-filled night.
I feel like, as we get older, we feel obligated to become more “serious”. I hate that. I never want to lose my sense of joy and happiness just because life gets stressful. Three years ago, I was carefree as can be (see below!) and I love that I’m finally rediscovering that girl. Stress is better handled with a smile anyways, right? And hell, we’re still young! Let’s get out, let go, and have a little fun, shall we?
Here’s to beautiful friends and a beautiful life…
