Well hey there, friends!
I’m comin’ atcha this morning from this lovely place…
Late yesterday afternoon, shortly after publishing my last post, out internet went out. I assumed it was just a quick little glitch, but it turns out our modem is old and a piece of crap (according to Jay) so we’re still without internet. Or shall I say, the world has stopped?
I’m hoping we can get that straightened out later today, since I really sort of rely on the good ‘ol internet for the majority of my work. Ooof.
I had a client at 8am this morning, so once I was done working with her, I headed here to my favorite Starbucks to set up shop for a bit and have some breakfast. I did snack on a Clif Z Bar (recycled photo) to hold me over earlier, but I was more than ready to dive in to the good stuff.
The good stuff being overnight oats in a jar.
Along with my grande sweetened iced coffee, I thoroughly devoured my batch of overnight oats that I prepped last night.
Not much different from the usual…
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 mashed banana
- cinnamon & nutmeg
Luckily, I set up a bit of a “wall” with my laptop and purse so I haven’t had to deal with too many double takes today.
So I’m feeling like I have a lot on my mind today. Some stuff is weighing more heavily than others, and some stuff has just really got me thinking about quite a bit. Last night after Jay’s softball game, a bunch of us stayed and hung out, and we all got talking about a bunch of different stuff…life, relationships, work, etc.
I’ve now written and re-written the bottom of this post at least five times and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just a total emotional scatterbrain today and don’t really even know what I’m thinking. I’m loony.
I guess everything just got me thinking about life in general. About how it’s just too short to be spent doing something that makes you miserable. About how we need to seize opportunities when they present themselves. About how we need to stop taking things for granted. And about how we need to stop focusing on what we don’t have and start making the most out of what we do have.
I’m sorry…I’m totally rambling today. This is sort of out of the norm for me, but I guess it’s what I’m feeling and I’m putting it out there. So I guess if there’s one thing you take away from me this morning (besides the fact that I’m a ball of emotions), try to take a minute today to really focus on the positive things in your life. If there’s something that’s bothering you – something negative – think about what you can do to make it better and act on it!
Alright, I think I’ve blabbered on long enough…I’ll be back to my normal self soon. Promise.
For now, go do something to make today great.
