Alright, I will admit I have been pretty crabby lately. I just couldn't catch a break. My days were starting at 7 am and not a moment to breathe until I closed down BWW (Buffalo Wild Wings) at 1 am. It was becoming a little too demanding and it was definitely getting to me.
I mean this is bound to happen right? You can only run so long until you need a breathing break. It was that time for me. I was becoming a Negative Nancy and when I woke up this morning I was trying so hard to find a day to look forward to....and the first day that seemed like a break was at least 10 days away. Urrgh! I then subconsciously decided I was avoiding my friends to save them from my crabbiness because as most of you know it can get a little bad. :)
However, I have good news. I am currently sitting on my couch with the Food Channel on, a Jimmy John's sub beside me and a Blue Moon to wash it all down. I am vowing to sit here until 6 pm before I get up and go to the library. I am in love with life right now.
Isn't it amazing that is it all it takes?
One ray of sunshine and it can make a day better.
So what was my ray of sunshine? Really? I will warn you it's a little depressing.
My ray of sunshine was that the sun went away! Yeah, I am not kidding. I was supposed to work AGAIN today and I was not optimistic about because of my bad experiences from the past two day and I was not excited. (One day I am going to write all about how you should act when your out to eat...but that is a another subject entirely.) Plus, I have a ton of stuff to do tonight!
But then the clouds covered the sun and the wind came up and made my day!
I was the patio shift at work and no one likes to eat outside when it is cold out and so I get the day off!
And here is the point of this all...I needed that day off.
Life gets crazy. Mine does at least. I can run and run and run but I am starting to learn I can't run forever. Sometimes we all need a break to clear our minds because eventually the stuff that is really important just becomes a blur. For me, when I hit that point I find it impossible to smile. I am just so stressed and I hate being like that.
Today, I got a lucky break. And then another lucky break when my quiz got canceled and then another lucky break when I might be able to a Twins game next week. But, even if I hadn't got that break...here's the truth...I was going to have to take it anyway. You can only do so much until you need a breath of fresh air. It can be simple...a really good lunch, a yummy cup of coffee or a text from a best friend you have missed.
So I encourage you next time you feel that stress mounting...take a break, relax, order Jimmy John's Turkey Tom...whatever it takes. I can promise you it will be worth it.
However, my hour is almost up and I have to do advertising homework and pack my bags for another trip down south for the Minnesota Junior Spring Classic! A weekend surrounded by 240 head of cattle...could a girl ask for more?
Have a happy and relaxing weekend!
