Charlie hates being left out. He has to be included at all times and even chimes in on the conversation every now and then.
Last night we had spaghetti, fruit salad and garlic bread. Is anything better than a loaf of french bread…..nope, except for the last picture on today’s post.
I have wanted to talk about something for a long time and thought today would be the best day to do so.
I am not always happy. Most of the time I am happy but I do not show the times that I am not on the blog (besides my posts about injuries). I am not always running around with ice cream cones while hugging Billy and talking about how awesome life is.
Most of the time I do try to look at the positive, smile a lot and be optimistic but I am human and I do have really low times too. There are obviously things that are going on in my life, family etc that are not so great, just like everyone else, and I do not include these things on the blog.
What happens to me is that I try to be so so so happy all of the time, being as cheerful as I can for my students, family, friends and blog, after a few weeks of doing so it turns out to be too much. I can only handle hiding my emotions and constantly being happy for so long and then I crash. Billy and I are noticing lately that this cycle is usually every 28 days;)
Yesterday, was one of those days. I stayed home all day long after the gym, endorphins didn’t even have an effect on me. I didn’t go to the movies with my in-laws or to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (obviously something was definitely wrong) with them because I was honery, grumpy, really sad and all I wanted to do was stay in my pajamas, be mean and eat baked potatoes with ketchup (my ultimate comfort food…I know, weird).
I finally cheered up at around 7, put on some make-up and real life clothes and the rest of the night was a lot better.
I am not writing this for pity because I am feeling back to myself again but I do want you to know that I hate running somedays, my hormones take over my body and I turn into a psycho and I am not very fun to be around.
I prefer to write about happy things and the highlights of my day on the blog and one of my biggest goals in life is that I am a optimistic/positive/good example for my high school students. I take great pride in the fact that a lot of my students have told me that I am a positive influence in their life and have taught them that success in life comes from how they handle the setbacks that come along their way.
The majority of my life I do try my hardest to have a good attitude and be happy……but let’s just get this straight, I can be a beast and boy, do I have A LOT of things to work on in my relationships and life in general.
It is amazing the healing powers that a dark chocolate peanut butter cup has on me:)
As a kid or teenager who was a positive influence in your life?
-My high school health teacher was one of the reasons I wanted to be a health teacher, he was always so happy and fun-loving. He really helped me to realize that it isn’t our circumstances in life that determine our happiness but how we overcome our obstacles and bounce back.
Please let me know I am not alone in the monthly cycle effecting your thoughts/happiness big time!?!?!
