Sweet Nothings Sunday: July 1, 2012



Hello, my Pretties...

I have something different planned for today.  What if I dedicate one day a week to non-makeup related posts?  I was thinking about doing this as a way for y'all to get to know me as a real live person and maybe, even possibly, as therapy for myself.

Today I wasn't feeling all that great.  I went to bed last night with such high hopes for today and it all seemed to come crashing down.  I felt so heartbroken and defeated.

With my happiness and sadness scale off balance, I began to think about all the stuff in my life that has gone wrong...or not the way I had hoped.  Does that ever happen to you?  Like, one little thing can lead to something much bigger.  


For example, I'm making breakfast and accidentally burn my bacon because I'm too busy Tweeting or updating my Facebook status to "Making bacon for breakfast...yum!!!!"  Then I get all upset because my bacon is crispier than I like it so I refuse to eat it.  I huff and puff my way to the living room where I grumpily sit and turn the TV on.  I'm hungry but I don't want extra crispy bacon.  Then the "feed a child for less than a dollar a day" commercial comes up and I see the images of all these sad and hungry children who would gladly eat my burnt bacon and I begin to cry.  I wish I could feed all the children of the world.  I wish I could do so much more with my life.  I want to save the world!!  But I don't have a job.  I don't own my own house.  I'm in debt.  I didn't go to college.  I'll never have a great career...  And the pity party goes on and on until I have belittled myself into almost non-existence.  All over some burnt bacon.


Today I was just let down about something that I had wanted for so long and worked so hard for.  Or so I thought.  I began to think that I wasn't good enough.  That I wasn't good enough for anything.  So after being down in the dumps all day long, I thought I'd talk to y'all.  I'm sure some of you have felt this way before.


All I can say is, if you want something, don't give up.  You can't!  I won't.  I feel so insignificant right now, and knowing me, I will feel this way for a while.  I try and motivate myself everyday but some days are gloomier than others.  I will get through it, I know I will.  All I need is some time.  Give me some time to be OK again.


I found these photo quotes online and I thought they were beautiful and inspirational.  These kinds of statements helps me heal when I am hurt.  I hope that in these words, you too, will find some comfort.









And this song is just a little bonus.  Even if it is from a man's perspective, I can relate to these lyrics 100%.  I may not be the person I had hoped I'd be by now and I'm not perfect but I'm working on becoming a better person and that's all anyone can ask of me.  I'm trying.


I literally shed a tear while writing this post.  I feel so vulnerable at the moment.  My ego is a little bruised and my spirit is a little weakened.  But everyday is a new day and a chance to try harder and do even better.  I have to say these things to myself to find the strength to make it through another day.


Thank you for listening to me.  I am so happy to have you in my life.


Luv & Luk,
--L.

  1. I get those blinders on too when I get down in the dumps. Everything sucks, won't get better blah blah blah. But somehow I realize how childish and selfish I'm feeling and snap out of it! Quotes like that help me as well! That's why I love pinterest!! Glad you're feeling better! <3

    1. Yes! LOL. Sometimes just the act of saying whatever your "problem" is out loud, makes it seem so unimportant. Haha. We all have down days. It's normal. We just need to know that it could be worse and we should focus on all the good that we have instead of the little bad that just stopped by for a moment. ~♥~

  2. New reader here :) But I know how you feel chica...I've had a lot of those days before. It's like you said though...everyday is a new day. We are only given what we can handle. Even the worst of things that happen to us will only make us a better, stronger person. Best of luck, and I hope you get to feeling better. Love your blog!

  3. Awww Amiga I feel you! I've been there and tbh i think everyone has been there at least once. Sometimes I choose to always look at the bad in my life and never really look at the good things that I've been blessed with. I always throw myself pity parties and it's ok all we can do is get back up dust ourselves off and try again. No worries what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger =D I'm here for you Amiga! ♥♥♥

    1. Thanks, babe! YES I was having a pity party yesterday. I'm feeling much better today. It's just that I get discouraged easily and hurt easily and I let that overshadow all the good that I am and that I have. I hate that I have to remind myself of all the wonderful things in my life, I want them to come naturally to me. One day, I will not let the little crappy things control me :)

  6. You are probably describing what almost everyone feels at some point in time...perhaps they aren't as brave as you to admit it. Keep the faith...good days and bad days. They are all part of life. :-)

    1. Thanks for the support,Karen. I don't usually like to admit when I'm down but it is a part of life and we shouldn't be ashamed of it. We just need to take comfort in the fact that everything will be good once again :)
