A rare compliment from my mom :)

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Usually my mom makes kind of negative "compliments" .. Things like "If I didn't eat all the stuff you don't eat I would lose weight too" comments that make it sound as if I was starving myself, and not making any effort at reaching my goals, and also comments that make me feel bad*.. BUT yesterday she said "You look good, you've really been working hard." :D

And she's right, I have been working really hard! Especially since the weather has been so nice! I'm outside most of the day now, playing and being active instead of just parked in front of a computer playing games. I'll be sad when Summer ends, but for now I'm enjoying every moment! :)

*I wonder if people realize that when they make comments that put themselves down it isn't just hurtful to them, but it hurts us to hear too. Especially coming from people we care about.

Anyway, just wanted to document that moment, it was unexpected and nice!
