1.) I decided to dedicate the rest of November to no complaining. That’s right. As of yesterday, I vowed (to Marty and my family) that I wouldn’t complain for the rest of the month. No complaining about work, friends, family and (the toughest of all) myself. It’s definitely going to be a day-by-day process but I think with intense prayer, thinking through my words (prior to speaking them) and accountability from friends and family – I can do it! I know it’s only been a little over a day since I’ve made this commitment but I can already see how much more positive my day goes when I don’t focus on the negatives. Wish me luck!
2.) This past weekend was really nice. On Saturday, Marty and I went to see one of his students play in the state championship soccer game. They won! 0-2! I’m not that big of a sports fan but I could definitely get into soccer; I always seem to enjoy myself (could be because it’s the one sport I really understand.)
After the game, we headed to The Wine Bistro for drinks with my sister and her boyfriend. It had been a good month or so since we’d gotten together so it was long overdue (and much needed!)
3.) For those that are married (or even those living on their own): do you ever get homesick for your childhood home? Hear me out. I absolutely adore my husband and love sharing my life with him but there are definitely moments when I miss my parents and my childhood home. Why is this? I can’t pinpoint my reasoning exactly, but I think it partially has to do with the season.
I absolutely love this time of year (fall transitioning into winter + the holidays) and whenever I stop by my parents house and see how festive, warm and inviting it is – I just miss it.
4.) One of the books the I’m currently reading is called Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. A few of the bloggers that I follow have suggested the book to help with overeating and figured that, considering the time of year, there’d be no better time to pick it up. I HIGHLY recommend this book you guys. If you even somewhat struggle with overeating or chronic (unconscious) dieting – you need to pick up this book. I got mine at Half Price Book store but you could also rent it from the library 🙂
5.) I’ll leave you with a couple of the crafts from last week…
