Day 85

Friday, March 3, 2017

Temperature: High 31° / Low 22°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Well...Since every Friday is now deemed the official Bridefriends’ Guide to Destination Weddings Podcast Day, it was exciting and fun! I already love Fridays (doesn’t everyone?) it really hit me that they’re gonna be extra lit as long as I keep dropping these new episodes every Friday!
It also hit me that not everyone will be happy, just because I'm happy.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Today I was a little achier than usual so I’ll put my pain at about a 5. I’m sure it has to do with stress, but I’ll be aight. I’ll take it easy this weekend and try to decompress and Woosaa...


Workout Time & Duration?

Does drinking and celebrating a friend’s birthday and throwing 1’s in the strip club count?!? Because that’s all that I did.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I still haven't finished it, but I did work on the spreadsheet for our lighting options. I’m oh-so-almost done with it. But almost doesn’t count!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Yesterday, I tried my best to come through and be supportive of Che with our disappointments with friends, and it seems like this is an ongoing theme for the week, because today it was his turn to let me vent and console me with my own disappointments. We agreed to have a great time tonight and try to not be down....

...and that's exactly what we did!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I have friends that understand and care how I feel - especially during this special time in my life. It can be really hard for some people to see past themselves and straight up be happy for others and that really is a sad thing, but I’m happy that I have a positive group behind me that can counteract any negativity that is thrown my way. Shout out to the Bridefriends!


What could I have done better?

I saw a meme that read: “Never get mad at someone for being who they’ve always been. Be upset with yourself for not coming to terms with it sooner.”

I can really practice that advice right now. When I think about it, this goes back to Day 93 when I had to remind myself that the world doesn’t revolve around me...only worse - it’s more like, “...just because you want to be happy, that doesn’t mean I care about your happiness too...”

What the fuck?!?



What am I doing tomorrow?

Hopefully, I won’t be faced with any more disappointments and we can actually have a good day. This should be easy since we’ll have some friends over and get to watch some boxing.
