Some things from the past week have been really throwing me for a loop (I’ll get specific tomorrow). All sorts of influences in my life right now are pushing me towards change and it’s hard for me to mentally let go of old lifestyle choices. Not that I should really miss things like biting my nails or stuffing my face with popcorn, but change is so difficult! I have a real shot at being my best me, and after some hardcore sulking, I am trying to prepare myself to make the shift.
This weekend gave me some prime opportunities to test myself, and I’m happy to say I didn’t run away because I’d have to test my willpower. Take Friday night for instance. Ethan and I went to see Looper (it was so good and I would recommend it to everyone). The hard part was sitting next to Ethan as he slurped Coke and ate deliciously buttery theater popcorn. Saturday, when I would have been absolutely content milling on Pinterest all night in my sweats, I gussied up and friends came over for some more board games and beer (although I had green tea). What’s with all food choices? Tomorrow, dears. It does help that I can text my sister and mom and complain how I wish I was eating the pizza the guys ordered instead of a salad…so they are sharing a bit of my stress.
As much as I hate pressure, I know right now, it is good for me. Really. What part of your life is pressuring you in a positive way?
