|Sweetness comes in all sizes!|
Today is thursday. And I think I'll dabble into a series of blogs on thursdays, rehashing the week that has gone by. Thursday is a pleasant day because it's my last day of class, "in class," and it's the day my assignments are due for my online class. So Thursday it is. Each week I'll go through sweet things that I'm grateful for. Let's get started...
Whenever I find myself in a rut, which, lately, has been more often than I care for, I try to find the sweet things in my life that... will get me back on the optimistic train ride. I've been so inspired these past few time laden weeks and months by so many creative and talented women out there. If you've read my very first post you'll know how much i love writing. It's been a back and forth relationship that I am now throwing myself all in to. My creative side has been kicking in reading through Bethany's, amazing and beautiful DIY projects featured on her blog. Sifting through so many different blogs has been a wonderful ride and I'm glad to be getting my bloggy on!!
The rut that was recently experienced got me a bit irked at myself. Why am I letting itty bitty nonsense bother me when I have sweet stuff all around me? To get back on that optimistic train again I found myself thinking about what I can do better as a person. And in the end, it's admitting that I am somehow unhappy about something [check] then figuring out a way to make myself happy again, without expecting someone else to do it for me. [check] Today is a new day, yesterday is done, so it's what I do to day that's still to come.
- Sweet stuff number 1: my $9.99 Christmas gift to myself. Jewelmint's. pomander 32" pendant. This pretty little number was just in my budget and had a vintage charm to it. It was inspired by Kate Moss' own pendant which belonged to her grandmother ( or something of the sort) and what's neat about is you can open it up and place a piece of cotton in it with a spritz of your very own perfume!! GENIUS!
- Sweet stuff number 2: Kung Fu Panda cub. Enough said.
- Sweet stuff number 3: Krispy Kreme red velvet doughnut. So deliciously wonderful! Thank you to my boyfriend's sister for this super sweet treat.
We come from two very different...worlds, in a way. And our differences come up from time to time. In the end, however, I will always go back to him and what we share. It's the sweetest gift & blessing, that I will always be so happy for. And that is worth more than any differences that we may have.
What do you think of or do when you're in a rut and in negativity-land? How do you get out of that rut?
