Rise and shine!
An Udiâ€™s bun with egg and cheddar. Simpleâ€¦ and totally inspired by those Jimmy Dean commercials with the talking Sun guy who helps all the other weather systems wake up for the day. Ha!
Feelinâ€™ sunny now.
Something random to shareâ€¦.
My best friend in Charlotte is Nicole, who blogs at Yuppie Yogini (which is how we met). I love being friends with Nicole because she is kind, funny, sweet, and likes to talk for hours and hours. Nicole is also a therapist, and sometimes, I can tell sheâ€™s â€˜therapizing meâ€™ in our conversations. Just yesterday, I was complaining about something and she said, â€œWhy do you think that bothers you so much?â€ What a therapy question (that I totally fell for!).
Anyway, one day Nicole was at my house and noticed the state of my silverware drawer.
â€œWhat the hell is with your silverware?â€ she asked. â€œNothing is in the right spot.â€ I replied that putting away the dishes was my most hated chore, and I never understood why people took the time to sort out the silverware, so I just dump the clean forks, spoons, and knifes back in the drawer without bothering to organize it. I added that Iâ€™ve noticed that others judge me when they open my silverware drawer (it is pretty nuts in there) but I still canâ€™t bring myself to care. Now, if you look around the rest of my house (and my life in general), I am pretty neat, organized, and structured, so the silverware drawer stands in chaotic contrast to how I do everything else. Nicole started to laugh hysterically. And then she observed that my response to the â€˜silverware drawer issueâ€™ was quite interesting to her because it was physical proof that I can pick and choose what to worry about instead of freaking out over small things that just donâ€™t matter in my life. I guess I never thought of it that way!
Now, whenever a silly problem rears its head, and I feel myself getting needlessly worked up, I visual my silverware drawer and remind myself that I can choose what to obsess over. I donâ€™t need to spend my energy worrying about everything. Some things are just silverware drawer problems. Not real problems. Itâ€™s not a big deal; everything will be okay.
And other times, youâ€™re just forked.
