Keeping A Positive Outlook

I apologize for my long absence over the weekend. Unfortunately on Friday we received some bad news  regarding the health of a family member and it made for a rough weekend 😦

I will elaborate a little more on the details of what is going on down the road, but this weekend I was really thinking about the effects of keeping positive and taking things a day at a time. In a difficult situation it is always interesting to see how different people handle it. I feel I am one that really tries to “stay strong” for those around me which I worry may look like lack of emotion at some times. I also try not to look too far ahead as that sends my mind racing too far. How do we ever really know what the “right way” to handle something is? Is there really a “right way” if everyone is different and has different ways of coping? And because of the differences I think it does make it somewhat difficult to comfort others around us as well.

Kona even felt the effects.

Weird how animals are so good at picking up on their humans feelings isnt it? They are secretly so smart, it’s kind of comforting 🙂

Phew, okay enough with the heavy stuff (for now!)


Since we really didnt do much over the weekend (like, at all…) the highlight of the weekend was definitely a trip to Cracker Barrel and the absolutely delicious (and I’m sure unhealthy) apple strudel french toast I had. It may be the most delicious thing I have ever tasted!

After that super eventfulness (word? probably not) adventure to Cracker Barrel (ha!) we rented some movies and hunkered down. Including Fast 5 (Torrance’s choice of course – though I let that one slide because….well Paul Walker… yum) and we also rented “Something Borrowed”

 I have to admit, this movie was just so-so for me. I love Kate Hudson and it was interesting to see her play a part where she wasn’t really the lovable character. I am not sure why I didnt love it but it was just ok.


  • Did you see “Something Borrowed”? Did you like it if so?
  • Do you have any tips for keeping positive?

  1. Awww, i’m sorry to hear that you had a rough weekend…and i am crossing my fingers for you that everything will be okay.

    Sometimes its really hard for me to keep being optimistic but I try as hard as I can to see the bright side of things or trying to hold onto positive thoughts. I think its way more draining on yourself to be pessimistic and negative, it never ends up helping the situation. Having a positive outlook is always easier said then done…but hang in there, I’m sending positive vibes in your direction!!

  2. I’m sorry to hear you had a rough weekend…my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.

    I try and stay positive by reminding myself all the good I have in my life and the love and support I have from my husband and family…reminding myself I have these people around me keeps me staying strong 🙂
