One of my favorite thing to say when things are going just beyond great is "puppies and rainbows"... unicorns and glitter is pretty awesome too, but my go to phrase is puppies and rainbows.
I don't know if there is something in the air, because I have had a few Spark Friends who were also not feeling like themselves and just not feeling puppies and rainbows when it comes to this whole journey right now. For me, there is nothing truly wrong...I just feel a little off. I know a large part of it is contributed to my work week this week and not getting enough sleep. I will finally get to sleep in tomorrow because I go into work at a later time and I really think that will help me out a lot.
I just want everyone who is feeling less than super dooper right now to remember to hang in there, and that our actions when we feel like we DON'T want to do this are the most important actions of all. When we are feeling great, and WANTING to eat right and exercise that is the easy part. But with the easy always comes the hard, and doing the right thing even when we don't feel like it is what is going to separate the winners from the losers.
Thank you for the slogans and the rumination. For me it would be kittens and kisses! Especially fish-flavored kisses from kittens. Yes, ma'am, it is so important to remember not to quit even when the puppies and kittens are not around to console us! 1890 days ago
Puppies and rainbows!!! Rainbow puppies?!?! That sounds awesome too! :-D
I'm definitely feeling much more rainbow puppies today than this last weekend, and I love reading blogs like this to get my mood back up again. I am determined to be a winner this time around, and no matter how many slip ups I have, I'm going to get there. Just like you will. :-D
I have noticed that lately too, it seems like when I'm having a rough time, other people are too. It's strange and comforting at the same time to know I'm not alone, but at the same time I am very grateful to have friends who are NOT having a hard time to pick me back up. You rock! :-D 1891 days ago
You are 100% right! When it's tough- that's when it counts!
I have figured out where my emotions are coming from, but need some time before I "come out" about it. :) Until then, I'm trying to be kind to myself and appreciate what I have been given :) Thanks for the reminder dear one! 1891 days ago
You got it right my friend! You always seem to hit the nail on the head! There are definitely no puppies or rainbows here but I am hanging on and pushing! Okay don't ask how I can hang and push at the same time! lol I got skills okaaaay!
