My life… as told by New Girl

Yesterday was pretty darn awful, I won't lie. It was just a day where everything that could go wrong, did. Nothing major, and honestly I shouldn't be complaining at ALL, but it was just a day bad enough to make you feel a little crazy.

Running late to start the day. Gas prices being RIDICULOUSLY high the day you can't avoid getting it. Dissappointing job news. Annoying coworkers. Google/Blogger hating you. Dropping half a container of hummus on your work pants. The list goes on…. but see what I mean? Mostly all silly things, but goodness. Put all those things together and it makes you want to shed some tears in the office…. and maybe I did!

But you know what? All I had to do was come home to turkey burgers hot off the grill, a baked potato, fresh tomatoes and my cute husband who had it all ready…. and things were right again. I feel like the older I get, the easier it is to find joy in the small things and to feel at peace with a simple life. And that's a good feeling in itself! The fact that Jared knew I had a bad day and suggested we start watching all the New Girl episodes on Netflix?! Melt my little heart. He knows how to fix a bad day in a hurry!

I won't lie, I'm not sure where this blog post is going. Or if this post is going anywhere at all. Really, I just hate complaining, and I feel like I did that a lot yesterday. Over things that truly did not and should not hinder my happiness.

So be happy today. Do what makes you happy. Don't let those annoyances get you down, no matter how obnoxious that guy in the next cubicle is or no matter how many times you get cut off in traffic on the way home. Because it's life… and life happens:

Now if you'll excuse me-- I have things to do ;) Happy Friday!

Yes- I did just tell a story with all New Girl gifs. You're so welcome!

  10. Yesterday wasn't my day either! But I came home and took the dog on a reallllly long walk and it didn't rain and it was actually cool weather so everything felt better! Then I watched a marathon of Giuliana and Bill and ended the day on a high note :)

  15. New Girl is my favorite so this made me incredibly happy on a Friday morning at work. I cannot wait for it to come back in the fall. I'm pretty sure Schmitty is my person but who knows. Hope you have a great weekend to recoup from this week!

  24. It's so true. I can melt down much more easily when one little thing tops off a day where lots of little things happened - I have broken down in tears MANY times just because I dropped whatever I was making in the kitchen because I was already stressed from the day! Glad your hubby had your back!

  25. Loved this post. It's so true, little things that shouldn't affect us so greatly do when they just seem to pile on us all at once. Remembering to let go of those little things and do what makes us happy is something I need to remember more often.

  26. Pretty sure this is the most amazing thing EVER. I'm sorry you had such a rough day, but the good news is also that New Girl is quotable for every situation. For example, by bff V and I have been yelling "All DAY son" for a few months now, and we just added the "Tenty-NINE" Schmidt says on his birthday into the mix. I'm glad your man is sympathetic to bad days and he's probably the best person to help cheer you up!

  28. Hold up.. that came off ALL wrong-- I meant to say that I'm sorry you had a bad day. I've been having MORE THAN MY SHARE lately.. I promise you. I love Zoey.. that's what I meant. AND I KNOW THAT YOU CAN PICK YOURSELF UP BY THE BOOTSTRAPS AND MOVE FORWARD BECAUSE YOU HAVE FAMILY, A HUSBAND, AND FRIENDS (including me) THAT ADORE YOU!
