|Instead, here is a photo of Matt and I wearing candle wreaths on our head for one of our thanksgivings. Have you seen the Ref?|
Anyways, i was trying to think about what would be a relavant blog post today, but i have been such a cranky bitch for the past two weeks, i was afraid that the second i opened the type window, it would just become a pile of whiney word vomit. "I don't have time to run, I can't stop eating, It's cold out, My house is a mess, waaaaahhhhhhhh"
Then, as i was sitting at a light waiting to get on the jam-packed highway so that i could whimper for an hour about my commute, a light turned on in my brain (finally) - I had once again packed way more food than a single person should ever eat in a day, and there was my favorite underpass transient scavenging for food and change. So i gave him my apple.
I know this doesn't seem like rocket science, but it got me thinking - what else is making me miserable despite obvious answers right in front of me? For example, i am simultaneously depressed about the lack of sunlight preventing me from running in the evenings, and my lack of extraneous cash preventing me from going out to lunch everyday. Wait for it - since i pack a lunch, and hoover it down in less than 5 minutes, what if i started running at lunch?? HOLY CRAP, i'm on fire!
To top it all off, every thanksgiving, visiting my moms cluttered house sends me into a maniacal cleaning spree, only this year rather than throwing away my gently used running shoes and cardigans that Matt has shrank, i will be trucking them to goodwill, so that some very tiny person can hopefully use them this Christmas.
In the spirit of all the upcoming religious holidays, what eureka moments are YOU finding to help give back, and appreciate what you have?
