3 Things Thursday
Last nights dinner:
I hovered over the Asparagus stand for (I kid you not), 15 minutes admiring the different colored stalks of one of me and baby brother’s favorite veggie.
Did you know that Green Asparagus is considered to be the “healthiest?”
Multiple stares later, I finally decided on the sweeter, purple variety.
and 2 days ago, I received an email asking me why I was so happy all the time. S/he has obviously never read some of my other entries. Life isn’t easy. Anyone who claims it’s easy is probably lying. You’ve just gotta keep pushing forward! The alternative is to remain stagnant and then, where would you be? No where, that’s where. Sometimes, it’s very easy to forget that you are loved. You’re loved more than you know. I for one, love you. I really, really do. Chicken-soup and extra sharp cheesiness aside, I mean it! For the record, I am not happy 24/7, nor am I perfect (like ever, ever, ever). Some research studies have indicated that social media outlets like Facebook have been linked to impacting depression. Maybe, maybe not but what it certainly does is present a very skewed tale comprised of happy smiles and pleasant, uninterrupted lives dotted with the perfect girlfriend, car, etc. Nobody is posting images of the tiny mountain of tissues that blotted your river of tears not 2 hours before, littering the corner of their room or sharing their most embarrassing moment of the day (maybe). Today, mine was dropping my purse and its entire contents at the coffee shop this morning. Lip gloss, phone, tampons, and all and then, to make matters worse, I accidentally mooned everyone when I bent down to clumsily grab for things (I curse you dryer for shrinking my clothes and not fitting correctly until mid afternoon when I’ve finally worn them in)! :/ …but you roll with the punches and hopefully, it’s mini episodes like that to contribute to your most entertaining memoir later on in life
Soup & Cheese…
