Bad Days Eventually Turn into Good Ones.

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'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!
