Show life you have a thousand reasons to smile!


when life gives you a hundred reasons to cry show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile

You know there are some periods in your life where negativity tries to follow you? Yeah I think that has been my year. I refuse to succumb to it though. Suck it negativity, I have zero time for you!

My weekend started off ok enough, I cleaned my entire apt, I went to my parents, watched the semi final game with my dad, ate my mama's food, slept in my bed (I call my childhood bed my bed and I spend nearly every weekend in it) and relaxed. Yesterday though, I was heading from my parents home to go meet up with one of my besties Alicia to watch the World Cup finals at a sports bar when this happened....


It wasn't too bad damage wise, but I will say it felt a lot worse than it looks ... it was pretty upsetting at the time and I hope it doesn't set the tone for the week. I'm just thankful it wasn't worse and that all parties walked away very stunned but otherwise ok. 

To be honest, I'm probably even more pissed off because my dad actually washed my car and now its damaged. Ha! All that shininess for nada! Also my mum got me two new orchid plants for my apartment and they got destroyed :( . My mum is a flower enthusiast and I was really looking forward to my beautiful orchids.

Let's top that all that goodness off with the fact that I missed the first half of the finals because I had to report the accident etc and then Germany won the World Cup and Argentina lost. Boooo... Messi, the striker for Argentina is one of my favourite players from my favourite team FCBarcelona ... so I was bummed.

But ... Like last week I'm not going to dwell on it. Today I have to go to the insurance company and deal with all that good stuff, but other than that, I'm just going to keep on trucking with that smile on my face. I really do look much better with a smile than a frown. So see that quote up there? That's my motto for the week!

  1. Aww man, sorry to hear about your car, that is the worst. And the fact that you had to miss part of the game too. Boo. Great attitude about keeping that smile. I'm bad about the negativity and let it affect me way more than I'd like to admit, so I need to keep this in mind for me too.
