Positive: Vibes

Pun intended.

I want to talk about positivity.

When you are bogged down with life and when it comes to dealing with struggles in our life along with stress we can forget to be positive. I know I definitely forget. I have been dealing with a lot of emotional stress due to family issues and its been a very frustrating situation as well. So, not only am I sad but I am also angry and that mixed together does not concoct well. I have been dealing with my stress in the worst way possible and I knew I had to make a significant change with how I deal with stress along with how to stay more positive regardless of what is going on in my life: good or bad.

I talked to my doctor and I have been researching myself to alleviate stress in a good way. So, here are a few things I have been practicing to stay more positive:

Baby Fever

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I desperately needed to take another photo of myself because they are either all with Zach or none at all. And I am not big on taking selfies quite honestly, but, there are some days you just want to make yourself feel better when you don’t.

I also, hate taking pictures of myself and always felt a bit narcissistic when I would take them plus, life gets busy and you have more important things to do along with I don’t always feel like showing my face to the world. Despite many people asking me to share more.

Ever since Monday after coming back from a very busy weekend driving back and forth from Harrisburg to Reading from Friday-Sunday for our Regional Convention and with all the other highly active weekends beforehand when I woke up, I felt like shutting down. And mostly was due to Aunt Flo visiting which really did not help anything. I woke up feeling very groggy, uncomfortable, gross and most of all exhausted. Oh, and we cannot forget all the emotions that I was feeling! They’re always a blast. Due to said emotions, I couldn’t get over that Zach, and I got married in regards to a lot of his friends sort of “late”. Which I know we didn’t! We got married at the time that was right for us when we met the right person. That is what I should have been thinking. But, now, I have been getting invited to a lot of baby showers. And have been asked a lot about when we are starting a family. Every couple that we know have either been married for 10 years already and or have children and they’re 27 years old on their second child.  I am 27. I would love to have kids! But, we are not ready to have kids. I told Zach how I felt, in tears, how I felt maybe by the time were ready it will be too late. Which he lovingly said “it won’t be.”

I know that sounds silly but, bringing a child into this world is a big deal to me because well, its a human you are solely responsible for and have to raise to be a functioning human being. And that kind of freaks me out. But, I am ready for that challenge whenever it presents itself. Just not now, haha!

There has been a lot of struggles and joys this year so far and I won’t say its taking a toll but, its teaching me to be a stronger person not only for myself but, also for Zach since were in this together.

Hope you liked my rant!

If you are newly married, what are your thoughts?

Adult’s Do It Better

The title might fool you but, from experience and being an eyewitness I noticed more adults throwing tantrums than I have seen children. Adults! Grown adults, like they have children in front of them and are freaking out over something not even that serious. And quite honestly, its pretty awkward and they look kind of stupid. I am a firm believer in treating people who are serving you particular with a service that you should treat them kindly and respectfully. I cringe when someone is rude to say a server at a restaurant in my group and I get so embarrassed. Like its a true pet peeve of mine and I think its actually ridiculous to treat people that way. Now, I am not speaking of when that person serving you is being rude or disrespectful themselves. You are the customer and if I am spending my money for your service I expect to receive kind, honest and respectful service. But, what made me even write this is this woman at the Apple Store. I don’t know why she irritated me so much but, I just couldn’t believe the way she was acting.

If you have never been to an Apple Store and the majority of people have, I am sure you know how crazy busy that place can get. I honestly, cannot, tell you the times I’ve visited an Apple Store and it was NOT busy. Its always busy. Always! 

My cat knocked over my cup of water over my Iphone 6 a couple of weeks ago and no matter what I did it would not come on. I made an appointment with my local Apple Store in Lancaster, PA which is 40 minutes away. My appointment was at 7:20PM I was greeted immediately and the Apple guy sat me down. Waiting game starts. This lady had an appointment as well and he sat her next to me. She kept fidgeting and she said to the guy “how long is this going to take?!” in a stern voice. He didn’t even flinch{I am guessing he is use to this behavior} he looked up her name and said “well, your appointment is set for 7:30PM and its only 7:32PM so they should be with you shortly,” smiles goes back to his job. Her face! She had such an attitude and I am like “here we go”. I felt her negative vibes. No more than say 6 minutes and she was like about to freak out, she is huffing and puffing. Looks over at me and said “how long have you been waiting here?!” I knew she was going to ask me that I just knew it and I said “oh, well, I have been here since 7:20 sooo….” and I turned back around towards my husband. And her hand hits the table and she looks at her son and exclaimes: “shes been here since 7:20!” I got so annoyed. I look at Zach, and said “this woman is annoying me”. Five more minutes past and she starts rubbing her temples and said “okay, now I am starting to get mad,” the moment she said that the guy says “okay, you both should be next I just talked to the tech’s” {at least I believe that is what he called them}. Boom! One minute later someone came to help us and while he was helping us another tech went to help her so, she really in a whole waited no more than 12 minutes where as I waited around 20-25 minutes so she didn’t wait that long compare to me who was waiting before her. This is not my first or my last encounter I am sure.

So, moral to the story is patience is a virtue and seeing adults have temper tantrums is very annoying and I feel awkward when they do it around me.
