Bout That Life

Yesterday was tough. But instead of me being Team In My Feelings, (I really was, I started crying while I was driving -cryving? when I was running errands, what tha heck???) I decided to focus on what I was grateful for instead. 

 I'm thankful that I am 43 and 24 year olds be asking about me. I get it now, Jennifer Lopez! I would never date him but it's still nice to know. #WhitePartyChronicles 
#StillPullingEm <======That made me laugh 

I am grateful for the ratchet song Flex Ooh Ooh Ooh by Rich Homie Quan. It speaks to my inner hoodrat e'em though I don't know half of what he's saying. I dance around and sing the parts that I know like I'm making a video. I'm also thankful that y'all are not judging me right now.

 I am immensely appreciative of words. When I see or hear a word that I enjoy it gives me a burst of joy like that first bite of bacon on a bacon sandwich. Churlish, cerebral, fodder (-I used this the other day!), cantankerous, segue, impromptu, and plethora makes the nerd in me clap my hands with glee. I won't allow my students to use words like "sad, mad, good or smart" in class because I tell them that they know more words than that. Those are baby words and they are banned in my class so I have them come up with more fitting synonyms.  

I almost didn't post these photos because my legs are not as toned as I would like them to be, but in the midst of operation gratitude I said to myself, "Self, you better post those photos. You pulling 24 year olds!" While in the midst of my sads yesterday, I was thankful that I still got my butt moving to the gym. 
Hey endorphins!

Shirt: Zara (On sale!)
Bracelets: Assorted
Shorts: DIY Levi's

We owe it to ourselves to take some time out of our day to admire the positivity in our lives. I am thankful to experience laugh out loud laughter daily, I am definitely bout that life. 

Tell me, what are you grateful for? Can't think of anything? You better have something or I'mma tell Gawd on you and He will NOT be pleased......

Not sure if last comment took, but in a nutshell I would like to relay that as we all get older it's troubling to see so many still struggling with different issues.

For myself, reconnecting with God has really brought me back to center, if you will.

Minus this, I highly doubt I could weather the storm I'm currently in!

Keep moving forward and smiling, it really helps!

It would be tempting to look at these Replica Rolex side-by-side.these two watches prove one of the most important principles of collecting vintage Replica Breitling.The case on the Sometimes Replica IWC does something weird, and that’s when you really need to pay attention.Rolex Air King is much more lithe than the sturdy beveled design found on such vintage sport watches as the Submariner and GMT.Sometimes Replica Omega does something weird, and that’s when you really need to pay attention.The appulse on the Replica Hermes Handbag capacity of high-end appearance brands isn’t absolutely clear.But some analysts are admiration a stronger approaching for high-end appearance brands of Replica Prada Handbag architecture affluence watch divisions.
