*** SHATTERED ***

Thursday, June 14, 2018

So, this is the blog I *WANTED* to write this morning:

Well the peach and nectarine didn't get eaten... That was traded out for 6 chocolate chip cookies...ugh!!! I did make it to the gym though (reluctantly...thank God hubby was going!), got some cardio in while watching Bollywood music videos.



Today is a new day. Good morning!



Things never go 100% right in my world, though, not even when I make an effort to try. So, I decided, climb the stairs to the office today. Just do it, stop arguing with yourself, open the door, up the stairs you go - yea, I did it! - should have been a happy moment, right?



Well unfortunately, as I was rounding the last set of stairs, this guy is coming down and decides he wants to interact with me. I'm huffing and puffing and holding onto the rail for dear life. He goes, "are you okay?" and I say "yeah" and he says "are you sure?" and I say "yeah, I'm just really out of shape" and he continues on, "do you need me to call somebody?" and I reply "no, I'm fine" and give him a look, like, hey, @hole, stop condescending me, this is hard enough as it is without you treating me like I'm about to keel over. So he gets the hint apparently and goes down the stairs muttering about "I was just trying to help, keep going you can do it" and so I reply "yeah, thanks" (sarcastic voice) and he goes "you're welcome!" like he has no idea I'm actually pissed off and completely humiliated at this point.

Am I overreacting? I don't know. I feel embarrassed, though, and don't want to climb stairs now because of the response I got this morning. I hate where I am right now.

    Each time you tackle those stairs it will get easier. That's the nature of repetition.

    If you meet that gentleman again remember his kind concern for you and your health. As a stair-taker, who knows, he could become your biggest cheerleader. You were angry because you didn't want anyone to see you in that physically distressed condition, not because he cared. The more fit you get, the easier the stairs, the less embarrassed or concerned you will feel. The nice man could turn out to be a walking buddy in the future. Don't give up because of one encounter.

    Peace and Care

    Keep climbing those stairs.
    (I'm sure the guy was genuinely concerned.)
    Besides, what others think of you is none of your business...
    But if you keep climbing those stairs you'll see progress over time. Seeing progress will make you feel better about yourself and what you think of you is what really matters.
    Keep on keeping on!

    Things will never all go right. If you wait until all of the lights along the way are green, you will never get started!

    Keep on Keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life!
    Until tomorrow!
