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?
