  1. Hah, 25. To be young again. As a teacher, it was great watching the middle school and high school drama. I was like, “I went through this. I get what you’re feeling now. In five years? Won’t matter. Trust me on this.” “But I love him!” “There are like ten girls I tried that line on and eight of them are married. Time to move on. Really. You’re like twelve.” Chase the rainbow ^_^

    1. Haha so true! Teenagers are the worst. Especially teenage girls. They’re all Anna (from Frozen): “IT’S TRUE LOVE!”

  2. This is a great reminder. Sometimes I’m overcome with the negative thoughts in my mind and I end up feeling bogged down by them. It feels great when you’re able to remain positive in spite of all the shit you’re dealing with in life.

    1. It’s no easy task, I have my bad days too. But I KNOW that things will get better in the sense that my attitude will adjust after one or two glasses of wine and some chocolate. 😉

    You should totally look up the 100 happy days project. Just something small you can do (esp since you already take so many photos!) to remind yourself of the good in each day. I just started myself. We all have those days where curling up in a ball would be easier, however, the big picture is that regardless of what were facing each day, there is always something to be grateful for! Nice post to remind us to think positively, though!

  4. There’s a military phrase I learned a couple of years ago, while reading a comic book. It’s not necessarily positive in the traditional sense, but I think it’s more realistic and in line with big girl panties: Embrace the suck. In other words, yeah, life sucks sometimes, but you just embrace it and move on. Don’t deny it sucks, because that’s usually a losing battle. Embrace the suck. Make it part of your motivation maybe. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself or worrying about whatever it is, you just grab the suck by the shoulders and take it along for the ride towards the solution. Eventually, the suck will stop sucking.
