One Of "Those" Posts

This is going to be one of those posts.
One of those posts where I set aside that positive front and admit that things aren't always perfect.
I'm getting sick for the second time this month, I just don't feel like myself, I just painted my nails and they are already chipping (dramatic I know =P) and I am so ansy and I am so ready for the school year to end. 5 more days and I really just need a break.

July has been an amazing month, a seriously amazing and busy month.
The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays,
my birthday... well my birthday will always be one of my favorite weeks days,
celebrating friends' birthdays,
Comic-con in all its madness,
time with people I love,
and I've really been taking advantage of the beauty that is San Diego in the summer. It's just the very best.

But sometimes I can't help but feel like there's so much I want to do and so many places that I want to be, and I can't figure out how to to stop slow and down. Time just starts moving too fast and I just want to shake it by the arms and say "Stop! I'm just trying to live here!"

It's ok to sit and slow down,
to take a day off at the gym and go on a walk instead,
take a 3 hour nap after work because getting sick twice in the same month is just not like me,
to focus on the positive and stop thinking about the silly things (cough nail polish chipping cough),
and to just get through this week because one month off of work is going to do wonders for my perspective.

And today, well today I'm going to put a big smile on my face because I'm taking some of the kids I work with to Sea World. Lets just hope this doesn't happen again....

Hope you find the light in the little things today.

Aww- sorry to hear you're not feeling well again! Frustrating, I'm sure :( Hope you get to feeling better soon!

But I agree, I'm trying to also focus on the good things. Also, doing things just for me. It's important to be good to yourself too :)

Feel better!

Hi Tammy!

I just recently stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I really enjoy the versatility and passion you seem to have about life!

I really like this post. It shows that everyone is human. I struggle all the time with slowing down and just enjoying life instead of watching it speed past. Sometimes its hard to take it all in. I'm happy you get a break soon :)

it's nice you can admit that things aren't always perfect. seriously, something that many people seem to have a hard time doing. in any case, i hope things turn around :] xx

Lieke said...

Ahhhww don't get sick! But better to be sick before your vacation than in your vacation right?

Gina said...

yep, it's all ok and we're all gonna make it :). sometimes you just need to take a break and take the pressure off yourself! have fun at sea world!

Whitney & Devin said...

I'm so sorry you are getting sick again :-( taking lots of naps and try to enjoy sea world! Say hey to shamu for me!

Cara-Mia said...

Aw so sorry you're getting sick again! Hopefully Sea Workd will be just what you need! And by the way, I still want to go. When would be good?

Ash said...

i say we need endless mimosas and jrdn breakfast/brunch dates... or at least, MORE of those, because it was so great talking with you (:

hope you have fun at sea world!!! i mean, i know you will.. but i hope it's awesome!

and yes, one month off is totally going to help/change/whatever to your perspective... at the very least, we can plan a big bear/blogger/shopping/drinking day, yes?


Melissa said...

I hope you feel better soon! I totally understand what you mean... sometimes I stop and think how are we in July already? Which turns into how are we in 2012 already?

Catherine Anne said...

hope you had fun at sea world and felt better!

Kara said...

I hope you feel better soon! I totally understand how you feel with all the go,go,go and having a hard time slowing down. I don't know how to do that either.


Allie said...

awww we all have days like this and it always makes me feel better to get it out too!!! i bet comic-con was crazy but amazing, my husband really wants to go!!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

Noooooo! Don't ever come to SeaWorld on a weekday and not tell me! I love getting out of the office on weekdays :-) And I can totally get your kiddos some goodies. Hopefully the dolphins made you smile today.

I took a 3-hour nap yesterday and felt so guilty about it. Why are we like that? Obviously our bodies need it! It's okay to slow down, listen to your body, and do what YOU want to do :-)

Boo! I'm so sad you're not feeling well. I hope your last few days of school are a breeze and you get to slow down and enjoy your break. p.s. every single time I paint my nails they chip almost immediately. It is really awful. I feel your pain.
