Self-Reflection Sunday

Happy Sunday Bloggies!  I usually rest Sundays, so there’s no workout to report today.  If I feel up to it, I’ll go for a walk with Kevin later.  The only foods I have to mention are the two bowls of cereal I had this morning.  Cereal is dangerous for me!  It was yummy – just some Post Shredded Wheat.  Mmmmm!

Yesterday was more eventful.  I chopped my hair off, which I am still getting used to, and I got my nails done.  By the way, does anyone else think of that “My New Haircut” video every time they get a haircut?  No- just me?  “Jagerbombs!”  Okay, seriously, do NOT go look that up on YouTube.  It’s highly inappropriate and only moderately comical, but my guy friends made a big deal about it when it was new.

Then I went ShOpPiNg!  Woopwoop!  I got a semi-cute but very professional Calvin Klein dress, which looks stunning when you wear it but drab on the hanger, and I purchased that purple sweater in the pic.  I also picked up this random stuff for my dining room table.  Kev actually approved!

While shopping, a little boy looked at me and told his mom, “There’s Barbie.”  His adorable imagination really made my day.  I was pumped after hearing him say that, but then I began to realize how silly I was acting.  Why does an empty comment from a total stranger make such a difference?   I’m not saying we shouldn’t be happy to get compliments, but we should be happy with what we’ve got all the time… errr…. or at least more often.  I realize this is a LOT easier said than done, soooo I have homework for all of us.

Write a thank-you letter to yourself showing your gratitude for how awesome you are.  I’ll post a mini one here, and you guys leave at least one thing in the comments you’re glad to have.

Seriously! Write one; it feels goooood

Also, I went out to eat with two of my girlie buddies at a new restaurant near the house.  We all got salads, and it was terrible.  Don’t get me wrong!  The company was good, but my salad was pitiful.  I could make a better one any day of the week with anything in my fridge at any given time.  Oh well – that’s not why I was there; I was happy to catch up with the girls.  I hope you all had a good weekend too!

  1. Oh, this is so nice post! Amazing idea with the thank-you letter, a real self-esteem boost!:) Well I am glad to have strong shoulders that help me bear all the things the wold brings to me. And I am glad for having a slightly bigger nose to let me smell all the wonderful flavours of the spring/summer season:)

  2. I never order salads when I go out… I’m too ready to indulge.

    I will def be writing myself a nice letter 🙂

  3. Bahaha I laughed out loud reading the, “My new haircut” comment. That video is unreal. I love this letter idea, it will really be great on the days I’m not feeling so hot. I am glad to have a fully functioning body that gets me anywhere I want to go!
