Ever have one of those days where you just want to crawl into your bed and stay there forever? If I’ve ever had one of those days, then today takes the icing. Last night into all day today I’ve had the feeling like a knife has been stabbed into my chest and ripped my heart out. Ohhhh the joys of heartache!
I tried to start reading Bethenny Frankel’s juicy novel, but my heart was feeling a little too heavy for anything.
So instead, I set my alarm with a positive message to wake up to in hopes that it would give me a better mindset for today.
Sadly it didn’t, and on days like today there are 2 things I rely on. Friends and a killer workout. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something about being able to talk in depth and real with your friends that can help you find a deeper meaning into how everything works the way it does.
I started blogging back in July after my relationship with the man who I planned on spending the rest of my life with ended. Back in college I used to blog but stopped mid-summer of my graduation. When I found that I had all of this new free time as a single girl, I decided to get back into the blogging world thanks in part to falling in love with Julie and Tina’s blogs. Seeing their passion for living a healthy life that included eating clean but also indulging, and staying fit with new workout ideas really sucked me in.
To be honest, I didn’t jump back into blogging as a means to make money or build a lot of friendships, although I did hope to make a few! Maybe a few months in I started noticing this one little bird who kept commenting on my blog. I was elated because I seriously didn’t think my blog was anything special or that anyone would care what I had to say.
I grew interested in Jen’s blog and always checked in on her latest posts. I never expected what happened next, but well, we fell in “straight girl love.” Our commenting on each other’s blogs quickly turned into Instagram stalking, to Twitter creeping, then we graduated to Facebook obsessing, and now we’re email and texting best friendz forez.
I am so blessed that Jen found my blog, although I have no idea how she did or why she decided to stick around, but it is one of the most incredible friendships I’ve made. I fully intend to learn every damn thing about her, straight down to the type of toothpaste she prefers and if she likes to floss with string or the amateur floss picks.
I have literally been down in the dumps for several days now with an achy breaky heart, and my little gem has provided me with some of the most brutally honest and helpful words of advice I could ever ask for.
So today, instead of being down in the dumps and focusing on the not-so-good parts, I am focusing on all the positive people and things in my life, and for what blogging has done for me. I not so secretly plan to take over Jen’s boyfriends place in her life, and Jen, this is my open love letter to you. I could send you a million heart and lovey dovey emoji’s, but instead, frame this post and put it on your wall at Chanel!
So if you can take anything from today’s post, it’s that even if life feels like a bird just had diarehha on your head, wipe that shit off and think about all the good things you have going for you. And while you’re at it, go stalk Jen’s blog, but be warned, do not even try to steal her from me!
