Day 55- Keep breathing

I am currently failing one of my classes, and so when I came across this quote, I felt like it served as a good reminder.

“Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.”

Currently trying not to obsess.. eek!!

Day 51- Reconnecting

“Feelings that come back, are feelings that never left.”

My co-worker, Jay*, and I were talking today, when I mentioned my cousin – who actually happens to be friends with Jay. I talked about how I missed my cousin (who is attending a school out of state) and how I was trying to build a relationship with him but things just weren’t going too well for me. Anyhow, after he showed me a few Instagram pictures of my cousin- cue the tears because of course I have many emotions and I am not afraid to let them show– it got me thinking about how much I wanted to talk to him.

So, there I was, after work, on my way back to my car, contemplating whether I should text my cousin or not. I sat in my car typing and retyping my message – uncertain of whether the wording would deter him from responding. But time was running out, and if I didn’t text him then I never would. So, I held my breath and pushed the blue arrow, sending the text into cyber space.

A few mins later, a new message popped up in my chat.

It can be terrifying jumping into the unknown. But if you don’t take the risk, you never know what could be. Maybe for me this could be the start of a good relationship between my cousin and I. But I never would have known if I didn’t take that chance.

Day 48- The Energy Bus

Yesterday I started reading The Energy Bus written by Jon Gordon, and I have to say that it’s one of the easiest reads for someone trying to throw a little extra positivity in their life. Only about 150 pages and the text is written in large print, simple sentences. I haven’t finished it yet, but the book basically chronicles a man’s life as he learns 10 simple rules to empower himself and create a more positive life for himself. Just reading the book empowered me to want to implement new (and old) techniques into my life so that I can consume as much positive energy as I can. If you’re looking for a way to change your life for the better, this is the way to start.

Day 46- How can I forget?

“How can I remember to forget?
When my heart just won’t let me.
Make myself un-love you, tell me that it’s not true.
I know all the reasons, but I just can’t believe them,
and pretend we never met.
How can I remember to forget?”

-Sara Paxton, “How Can I remember to Forget”

Last night my co-worker outed me for liking my best friend – which took me completely by surprise. (1) I couldn’t figure out how he figured it out, and (2) I am over the whole falling for my best friend – or at least I thought I was over it. We talked about my best friend and his new girl for sometime and while I really did think I was over him, I have felt nothing but sorrow since last night. I miss him and I wish we could have been something. But I know that we can never be together and I need to move past all this if I want to salvage our relationship. Things have finally started feeling normal between us again and I don’t want to mess things up.

Anyhow, I love the above song, from Lovestruck! The Musical and so I thought I’d share it with you all since it reminded me of my current situation. Enjoy!
