A thankful me - 10

The reset button has been hit for the week. A new week brings new possibilities, new attitudes, new outlooks. And maybe even new opportunities. Who knows. We can all hope, though.

My weekend was subtle, quiet and done mostly alone. But I needed it. That sounds deep, dark and mysterious, but do you ever have those days where speaking is physically difficult? Where you don’t even want to move your mouth or hear your own words; you just want quiet? Silence?

That’s been me lately. Its been difficult to talk to others because I haven’t wanted to talk. For no other reason (please everyone near me, don’t worry) than just not wanting to utter a word. Its hard to explain but today’s Monday and I’m ready for it to change.

I’m thankful for:
- not being paralyzed. Its true. I woke up one morning, put both feet on the ground to walk to my blaring alarm clock and sunk straight down. Both legs had no feeling. I had to drag my body to my alarm, reach to turn it off and drag myself back to bed to wait for them to come back. Its happened only 1 other time, 6 years ago. They don’t tingle, they don’t burn from that ‘sleep’ feeling they just slowly become mobile again.
- the extra hour’s sleep I got as I waited for my legs to come back to me…that came back within minutes.
- understanding friends. Sometimes I’m amazed I have any.
- encouraging words.
- resisting the 2 different kinds of cheese dips at a party I went to Saturday. To say it was difficult was an understatement. She had the multi colored chips too. I love those chips!!
- the pickles I ate instead.
- God’s strength.

Yesterday, I was going through old pictures, deleting the superfluous buns ones (name that movie) and came across this picture.

When I took it I knew I wanted to work on it, but wasn’t skilled with editing yet, and kept it. I played around with it and wanted to get your opinion.

Would you yay or nay this? Either way is ok with me. Just curious.

I’m putting it out there for accountability. My broodiness is coming to an end, beginning today.
-what? you were broody??
- to the 10th power.

Its just sucking me dry. I’m going to get back into my regular workouts that I’ve taken 2 1/2 weeks off from and seek out a little bit of happiness daily. You have my full permission to smack me if I fall off track.

Pin It Now!

I have been broodiness personified for probably the last week. It likely has something to do with lack of sleep due to new stupid working hours. Never mind, you're right because it's a new week today.

Hope your Monday goes off without a hitch!!
