As much fun as I've been having, going to places like the Zoo or Disneyland... or planning my upcoming adventures for Universal, Disneyland and eventually Florida... all days can't nearly be that exciting! There is a part of me that wishes they COULD all be that awesome, but I would probably end up pretty exhausted!
Rest is good, and important! So I am doing my best to find joy in the little things!
Today, that cute elephant toy was on sale, then with my cartwheel ap from Target it was an extra 10% off, plus another 5% off with my Target card. Okay, so I could have totally afforded the dog toy at regular price, but who doesn't love getting a bargain?!
Besides, we know my dog NEEDS an elephant toy. ;) But such a small action made him soooooooooooo happy, and it made me so happy that he was so happy!
Another bright spot in the day? Actually loaded photos to a website to have them PRINTED. I know you might be thinking, "what is so great about printing photos?" There really isn't anything special about it... but I am the girl that didn't want people taking photos of me in the past. I am now the girl that not only wants her pictures taken, but she wants to post and share them, and even print some and make a photo album and maybe just maybe put some in a frame. *GASPS*
How did that happen? What a 180 I have done in my thinking and my life is truly so different from what it was.
The one thing I want to share is, I lost over 80 pounds before my confidence returned, and before I changed my way of thinking. I really wish I would've gotten a grip on that sooner. So what I want to share with all of you is, don't wait to be happy and enjoying your life! We all have things we don't like about ourselves or our lives... we all have struggles and obstacles to overcome, and of course things aren't always
's... but we can find a little bit of good/joy in each and every day! If you have the opportunity to take a picture with a friend or at a special place, DO IT! Don't worry about how you might look or how this or that might be hanging or looking... years from now you and your loved ones will want those photos! I have missed out on so many opportunities to have lasting memories from some awesome photographs, and I refuse to let any more moments pass me by!
You don't have to be as obnoxious as me, posting all 900 photos for everyone to see!
Even if you keep them for you and no one sees them, at least they are there! If you are starting your journey or you still have a lot of weight to lose, you will be happy you have that as a "before" photo when you get that weight off. Boy do I wish I had more "before" photos.
So enjoy the little things... I know it's cheesy, but it's true!
P.S. Anyone partaking in my "game", how's it going? I am about to complete day 4/4! I may not WIN, but I am sure going to give her a run for her money! :D
