Its okay to be upset, but remember its also okay to have bad days! Always thinking of you! Xoxo
I should be immune!!!! =P
I haven’t been counting days or anything, but I had a good two or three weeks where I was following my meal plan and doing really well with it. It’s not a super long time, but I was proud of it and I wanted to keep it going. Now it feels like it’s “ruined,” even though I know perfectly well I can pick myself back up at any moment.
Thank you so much for all of your love and support through all of this. It means so much to me. ♥
I just found a barn not far from where I live that does the same style of horsemanship that I was learning when I started to ride.
I sent the barn owner an email.
I hope she lets me work with her horses! I want to get back into vaquero horsemanship sooo bad!
Wwwwhy did I decide not to measure out a portion of those stupid cookies?! =(
Especially after I decided to skip lunch today
It’s been a while since I’ve had a bad day with foods.
Not gonna lie, I’m very disappointed with myself…
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
I think this just changed my life.
And this is why Psychology is my major.
I’m sure Yahoo wouldn’t buy Tumblr unless something was in it for them. They say Tumblr will remain independant, but there must be strings attatched somewhere.
Sad Cat Diaries
When I saw my therapist last she asked me what I really wanted to do with my life right now. I told her that I wanted to ride.
My homework for this weekend was to find contacts for places I might be able to work. I found a list of barns in the area, but I’m not sure how to go about contacting people. Do I just call and say “please let me ride your horses?” That seems almost… pretentious? That’s not the word I’m looking for… but it doesn’t seem like I should be calling around asking for people to come let me work their horses for them.
I’ve tried contacting two of my riding instructors from school, but neither of them have responded to me and it’s been more than a week.
All I’m asking for is a referral. Why would they be ignoring me? =(
How did you even get there, cat? I told you not to sneak out.
