 ::: You just have to laugh at the drama filled crazy world. I definitely get a giggle out of people making a mountain out of a mole hill, especially when they think everything is about them. #notthecenteroftheuniverse.

::: A work reorganization is sad because a friend moves office, but it can open up different life opportunities you had been scared to try. #changeisscarybutnecessary.

::: I wake up to my alarm, hop out of bed to go do yoga and start the coffee pot but then I just walk right back to the bedroom and snuggle up to Le Husband for 45 more minutes of sleep.

::: A sick day is what you need to get your life organized. Even if you aren't really sick. #booyouwhore.

::: The only way to get through a conversation with your boss is with a cubicle between you with your head in your hands. #pleaselearnyourjob #readyouremailsbeforeyouaskmeaquestion.

::: It's okay to say yes to that EXTRA bowl of air popped popcorn.

::: A bad day rears it's head and knocks us off our axel. But, you need to remember to still be kind to those around you because your bad day does not need to become theirs.

::: You  have to be the jerk and cut someone out of your life to keep yourself from going crazy. This month marks a year since I removed a huge negative weight from my life and I'm so thankful I listened to my gut. The drama may never be fully gone [because some people can't let things drop] but it's no longer a factor in my life which makes me happy. #dropthedrama #walkaway #funnyhowthingsstillgetcopiedeventhoughwearentfriends

::: I can't help but watch trashy television. #bethennyisback #yes

::: Ballet class with your sister turns into ballet class with your sister and mother. #familydanceclass

::: Blasting a song on repeat is what you need to get through a project at work. And a situp set at home.

::: People mistake their place in your life. Just because they THINK they are in your inner circle doesn't mean you have to put them there. You know who you value and just because they don't understand it's not them, doesn't mean you have to change to keep them happy. #iknowwhomytruefriendsare #sorryyouthoughtyouwereoneofthem #truetothoseilove

::: Praying for someone is better than cursing someone.

::: My mind wanders the distant future and I get scared about having a home, being a mom and trying to have it all.

::: I wish I lived pre-Internet and digital era because the ability to compare wasn't everywhere. Sure you had the Jones' that lived down the street or the boss's wife, but it wasn't on every platform known to man. Simple living seems so appealing to me right now.

What are your sometimes? 

Linking up with *megan* *kristin* and *annie*

Laughing so hard at #booyouwhore and the whole its better to pray for someone than to cuss them.....hahahaha wait a second didn't she just say....lol. Betheny is my favorite too...so straight up! xo Amanda!

BLovedBoston said...

I love that you said your bad day does not become someone elses...that is so true!! great post girl and snuggling after you've gotten up is the best! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

Claire | Fashion + Feathers said...

#booyouwhore made my day! I love morning snuggles so much more than night snuggles. It's like you're avoiding the day together. Such great perspective on all these :)

Elle Sees said...

yes--agree with not taking your bad day out on others. i have a family member that does that and i make a conscious effort not to do that on those rare occasions where i'm having a bad day

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Hahahaha love this! The #booyouwhore was the best. I totally have taken a sick day to just clean and organize, sometimes it's needed. Let's call it a mental health day ;)

Julia said...

Um yes, have so taken a sick day for that reason before, sometimes it's just necessary! Drama is ridiculous, I can't believe how much of it goes on with adults! Shouldn't we be past middle school-type drama by now?? SO agree about wishing we lived before the internet and being super connected, sometimes I just want to hole up in a cabin in the mountains somewhere with my hubby and disconnect from everything!

Kathy@RealTalk said...

omg i did a post just like this 3 days ago but have yet to publish because it sort of was half confession-ish/have thursday thoughts-ish. i guess great minds think alike!!

my sometimes:
-it's ok to scrap your clean eating for the day and eat all the things because period. damn period!

Courtney B said...

Love your hashtag about change. So true that it's SO hard but SO totally necessary! And saying yes to another bowl of air popped popcorn is hardly a cheat, ha ha! I love you so much! And am totally cursing my craving for all the sweets and carbs this pregnancy. I need you to be my work out partner to kick my butt back into shape (and my thighs... not even kidding you. Ugh!)

Queen In Between said...

Mental health days....no guilt in those! Cracking up on your hashtags. And I'm laughing that you linked that video from Good Luck Charlie....because it was actually on my Thursday post as a show I really wish would come back..lol. I watch way too much Disney channel #getalife

A sick day is what you need to get your life organized. Even if you aren't really sick.


Anonymous said...

Hahah love Maegan's comment above. Seconds of "bad" food (sometimes), a bottle of wine to yourself (sometimes) and napping both days of the weeks (most weekends) are mine :)

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

Yes! Wishing you lots of extra popcorn. And wine. Always wine.

Sierra&Faith Winks and Eyerolls said...

A sick day is definitely what you need to get your life organized. They should really just start calling them mental health days. And bad tv is so addicting! Winks and Eyerolls

carissajade said...

Ha I'm with you. I definitely sometimes have to crawl back into bed. I want to right now!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

your bad day does not need to become theirs - preach!! and i think i feel a sick day coming on, lol

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

You made my day with the boo you whore reference! Sorry to hear things are a little trying right now at work. Believe me when I say I've been there, and I know how bad it sucks. Hang in there gurlie, and let me know if you ever need to vent *hugs*.

Nadine Lynn said...

Erasing drama filled people out of your life is so relieving!!! And YES to not making your bad day someone else's!!!! There is no need for that.

Myra said...

#BooYouWhore reference is giving me some serious giggles over here. I love this post! You're so right about not using our bad day as an excuse to make someone else's day bad as well -- I've definitely been guilty of doing that before and it doesn't help anyone!

The gif of the little girl shaking her head is one of my all time favorites...its so cute! I am so relating to so many things on this list lately...I hate when I become the target of someone's bad day/week/semester. I am happy for you that you are celebrating a milestone of not having a negative weight in your life! Its incredible how difficult some people can choose to be. I am so glad I you posted this today!

Loved the hashtags too!

Ashley said...

This gif is so funny! Cracks me up everytime I see it. Definitely get a kick out of people when they act like this is their world.. its almost comical these days.. I'm sad for them tho.

Alana Livingston said...

I wish I had the energy/motivation to get up that early every morning and work out AND still have time to climb back in bed--impressive!

I feel that way with conversations with my boss, too. So frustrating!

I definitely need to spend more time praying for people than I do cursing at them--thanks for the reminder!

Can't wait to get back into blogging--first step (blog redesign) is complete : )

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I'm allll about cutting negative people out of my life. If you can't add something good to my world, then I don't need you in it. Life is too short!
