It’s the weirdest pain in my lower calf…it feels like a really bad charlie horse. Luckily I was able to run 4 miles on it this morning but as soon as I got to work it was instantly painful once I sat down. I’m guessing it’s just a pulled muscle or something but it’s unbearable for a few minutes and then I pop some Advil and it’s gone. I know that should be a good thing but I don’t want to be putting a temporary band-aid over a bigger problem, ya know?
Random life question: how does Advil just KNOW what to do once you’ve taken it? If I have a headache, Advil cures it. Toothache? Advil’s got it. Throbbing toe? Done. So how does it just know where to go? Haha is this a stupid question or what? These are the things I think about at work….(another similar question: where are all the baby pigeons?)
I’m a little sad that I missed National Pancake Day yesterday. In fact, I didn’t really celebrate Fat Tuesday at all (minus some m&ms but that’s nothing out of the ordinary for me haha). Do they make calendars for foodies to remind them when each “National ____ Day” is? If I miss National Omelet Day or National Cupcake Day someone’s gonna get shanked.
On a little serious note, I’d like to discuss this article that I read yesterday. It has a great message that really spoke to me.
For me, the things that I tend to worry about in life are oftentimes the things on this list. I let things that other people do bother me too much, and put wayyyy too much emphasis on what people do or don’t do for me. Personally, I need to STOP needing a partner in crime all the time and need to be capable of doing activities that I love by myself. I need to realize that it’s not a wasted moment just because someone isn’t enjoying it with me. Not everything in life is meant to be social. I also was really struck by the one about people being on time. It’s so funny because I’m rarely on time myself but if someone, especially someone close to me, shows up really late to something, I take it personally, like time spent with me isn’t important to them. What’s up with that?! I read way too much into it!
Regardless of what you think of the artcile and if you relate to one or more of the tips, it’s definitely a good idea to place less emphasis on what other people around you are doing. This is definitly something I need to work on. I’ve noticed that my entire day can change instantly by someone else’s opinion, words, or actions. That’s not a good way to live…it’s downright exhausting.
Take a look at it and let’s discuss below!
