Yesterday was just one of those days. While it should have been one of my favorite days of the year as of yet – the sun was out, I didn’t have to wear a coat, and I got to stroll through Central Park (one of my favorite places) – I didn’t see it that way. On the contrary, I let small hiccups get under my skin and stress me out. Instead of walking around the city in awe of the architecture, history, and people as usual, I became what people think of when they imagine a “stereotypical New Yorker”. I was fast-paced and annoyed with everyone I came in contact with. The line for lunch? Longer than it needs to be! The kid slowly walking in front of me? Move. Get out the way! I never want to be like that again in my magical city…
Yesterday was just one of those days. Even after I arrived back in CT, I couldn’t shake the mindset I was in from my city adventure. It was raining during my walk home from the train station. There was traffic on my way to work. I had stuffed myself with Shake Shack even though I wanted to kick-start healthy eating habits on the 1st of the month, so I was feeling terrible. It was a Murphy’s Law kind of day…
When I got to work I was greeted with smiling faces and kind words. While an issue or two popped up, it was nothing we couldn’t figure out/fix together. In addition, my co-worker brought in my new Michael Kors Hamilton tote she picked up for me…and a mint hot chocolate from Starbucks…and a pink cake pop. #daymade I also had some time to reflect on the morning’s events, my current “problems” in life, and on my day at work.
You know what I realized? This life I live isn’t too shabby at all. I’m blessed to be able to spend random days in one of the greatest cities in the world. I’m blessed to have wonderful opportunities. I’m blessed to have amazing and thoughtful co-workers that I can call ‘friends’. I’m blessed to have a job I love – a job that’s my happy place. I’m blessed.
Yesterday was just one of those days…and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Stay fit and fabulous,
