THERE ARE DAYS...

There are days when I don't feel like making dinner... so we order pizza and breadsticks, and hate ourselves later.

There are days I don't want to do anything... so I watch Real Housewives of fill in the city and feel fabulous doing it.

There are days I feel inspired to finally donate that t-shirt I've been holding onto since the ninth grade... but then I remember all the great memories and put it back in it's rightful place. Seriously, I need to go on "Hoarders" or something.

There are days when the mister and I get in an argument... I don't like those days.

There are days I want to make everything on pinterest... but then I remember I'm not creative enough and buy it instead.

There are days I feel lonely... but then I pick up my phone and call a friend.

There are days I walk into Madewell... only to walk out empty handed because everything is ridiculously expensive and then I hate my life.

There are days I want to travel the world... but then I remember what a homebody I am.

There are days that I spend too much time comparing myself to others... and this never ends well.

There are days I am happy... and I embrace it wholeheartedly.

There are days... and then there's today.

  10. There certainly are days. I felt like this entire weekend was one of "those days" here. Here's hoping you (and I) get through an entire week without any of those.

  12. What's wrong with pizza.. AND breadsticks?! AMAZING stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love this. And comparing yourself to other people is a horrible habit to get into. It's something I actively have to deal with...ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Perfect, we're all in the same boat. Just listen to the voice of gratitude more, the voice of happiness and contentment more and you'll be just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a creative post. I think sometimes we all feel those things!!

  66. So many of those i relate to.
    Traveling, tshirts, ordering out, comparing myself, etc.
    So you're not alone in these thoughts...and you will also not be alone in embracing the day! :)

  67. There are days i read post who truly touches me...
    I love this TJ

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the days when I don't feel like making dinner, ordering food in is so worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I mentally "check-ed" off most of these in agreement as I read... Especially the housewives of "fill-in-the-blank"... :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Love the honesty of this post. Yep, lately I have a lot of those days where I have a lot of thoughts, and I'm not sure what I want or how I feel about a lot of things.

    ReplyDelete
  71. oh today for me is one of those days..
    great post ;)

  72. oh yes, we have those pizza nights all too often...half the time it's take-out, the other half it's frozen. Yum. Ha ;)

    reading about having arguments (why is it that we fight most with the people we love the most?? *sigh*) made me think of something my friend recently told me...a good way to cool the mood when it gets heated with an argument...head to the bedroom, then get your anger out by throwing socks at each other. one pair at a time, and where ever the sock hits, you have to take that article of clothing off. LOL! ;P

    have a wonderful Thanksgiving TJ!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. So true...haha. Especially about Madewell!
