life is what you make it...

best words of advice ever.
i've been in a rut lately, as some of you may have read on my post tuesday.
i don't know why or what has caused me to be in such a blah mood, it's just happened.
i've had my share of chocolate, wine and lifetime movies in the past week, but i still just can't seem to put my finger on what is making me so down in the dumps.

i came home last night to an amzaing surprise from my hubby.  he got me a "just because" gift.  oh and he did good y'all.

a new coach purse, matching wallet, and new tory burch aviators. 
i was thrilled.

it definitely put me in a better mood.

i woke up this morning feeling a little different.  i was engergized and ready to take on the day.  you see, i had some one on one time with God last night before i went to sleep.  after the awesome surprise from my wonderful husband it was almost like God was poking me on the shoulder and saying "see you are blessed, you have nothing to be sad about".  and you know what?  he's right.

i am blessed.  blessed beyond measure.  i'm healthy, i have an amazing husband, two adorable fur babies, a beautiful home, loving friends and family, and a full time job.  what more could i ask for.

it's time for me to put on my big girl panties and deal with life.
life isn't a huge fairy tale, nobody's is.  but if you walk around with your head down all the time worrying about things, then yeah your days are going to be a bit "blah". 

and that's what i've been doing.  i've been lazy, feeling sorry for myself, not happy, and basically walking around with my head down.

if you get up every morning and say to yourself "i'm going to have a good day today" then you will!
so see life is what you make it.
don't make it a "blah" life, make it a good life.  you only have one!

and make sure to count your blessings.  focus on the good instead of the bad.  
and the best advice of all is to pray.
pray daily.

i hope you all have an amazing weekend.
