MANTRA: *Focus On The Marginally Good, Focus On The Marginally Good*

I had a lot of not great moments today.  But I tried to focus on some good things going on at work.  I also did a lot of deep breathing.

NOT GREAT: Many things happened today (some of the most frustrating things were caused by me) that made me wonder if I could make a living blogging…working at a daycare…or just selling shoes….

MARGINALLY GOOD:  At least my room was in one piece at the end of the day.

NOT GREAT: Our bean plants are not growing.

MARGINALLY GOOD:  I remembered to water them.

NOT GREAT: I feel like this.

MARGINALLY GOOD:  I actually looked like this at the end of the day.

Still not great…but it’s no Katie Holmes.

Also, when I googled pictures for her after I typed in “Katie Holmes”, in the drop down menu the first thing that came up was “Katie Holmes looks terrible”.  Ouch.

Here’s another thing.  Before I thought of Katie Holmes I thought I would google a photo of the scary guy from behind the dumpster in Mulholland Drive.  What was his deal?

This was a total whack-job of a movie!  This scene gave me nightmares.  I definitely saw this movie when I was too young to understand it.

I know that dumpster guy makes you hungry.  So here’s some food.

Breakfast was chia-oats with cinnamon, almond milk, almonds, almond butter, and strawberries.  Now that I write it out it’s incredible how many almond-based things I have in the kitchen.

MMM Lunch was roasted veg, rice and bbq sauce.  Please imagine me saying “BBQ sauce” like they used to say it in the Chili’s commercials.

I had second snack when I got home.  Ba-nay-nay with choco almond butter.

I have no clue what we will do for dinner.  I’m off to do some yoga to relax my mind grapes…or maybe I’ll just take a bath.

    You look sad and frustrated in the after-school pic….yikes, must have been a terrible day….

    • It could have been worse…but it wasn’t great. But seriously when I got home I listened to some spa-ish music, closed my eyes and just relaxed…and did my best to remember a great piece of advice you’d given me: it’s only a job. Plus, only 14 more days!

    Focusing on the good is a great way to brighten up a not so great day. And hey, you look really good for having just spent the day with kids. One kid for 1 minute is all I can handle. 😉
