QOTD: “Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.” ~Edward Vernon Rickenbacker
I think FEAR is the main emotion that runs my life, and it is also the one I am most afraid of. Like I am terrified of my own anxiety and that it will take control over me. But I like this quote. Without fear, there is nothing to be brave about. My boyfriend tells me all the time how brave I am, I never know what he means. I mean, he is in Afghanistan and handles so much and never complains and he calls ME brave?! But everytime he says it, it makes me determined to BE brave, and I like that.
Today is not going to be like the last two days where I messed some things up. Yesterday, I looked at myself in the mirror, crying, and said, “I forgive you, I forgive you for everything. And I love you. I love you so much”. And for once, I meant it. I know that I will have to tell myself that again and again at times, because my natural inclination is to self-hatred, but today I am going to let that peaceful feeling and that feeling of love carry me through.
MY POOL IS OPEN AGAIN TODAY! 🙂 🙂 🙂 So my plan this morning is to have a little coffee or green tea (I know I should err towards the green tea because I can’t handle that much caffeine and we are out of decaf…and plus green tea just feels so much healthier to me), and then go swimming! 🙂 It looks like a rainy day out right now but it’s supposed to get better/warmer/sunnier later on.
I am very picky about my coffee (for instance, Starbucks drip is NASTY!). This is the best coffee I have EVER had. We get the huge one from Costco, but I am not sure where else you could find it…TRY IT IF YOU CAN!
Okay so I went for the GREEN TEA though…this is also the BEST green tea I have ever had. 🙂 Also from Costco, it is so smooth with absolutely no bitter taste and needs absolutely no sweetener:
Question: What is your favorite kind of flower? The Tulips in our yard look so good right now. I love all the Spring flowers and also Roses and, especially, Calla Lilies!
