My last 2 days have actually been fantastic. So since my ‘relationship’ with Jenny started almost two weeks ago, I’ve lost over 8 pounds. But even more than that, I’ve just been feeling great. Like more energy and not as tired and just blah. As a result, when my alarm goes off in the morning, I’m totally prepared to get up and start getting ready for the day instead of pressing snooze for what used to be on average 5-6 times… as many times as possible. Like I would literally think through if it was absolutely necessary for me to brush my teeth some mornings just so I could get that coveted 9 more minutes of sleep. No comment on how many mornings I did choose sleep over hygiene, but I’ll admit they were sprinkled in here and there, so my apologies to any co-workers who had to get too close lol. Anyway, now I get up straight away, feeling refreshed, which has led me to spend maybe 5-10 minutes more on myself each morning while doing my hair or make-up or even choosing my outfit. Heck today I’m even wearing heels which I used to do all the time, but for some reason stopped doing it recently.
As it turns out, this added prep time has not gone unnoticed. Yesterday morning, I walked on my break to Starbucks and I was on the phone with a friend but when I walked in I saw a cute guy at the register and so I smiled, like I do to basically everyone I make eye contact with, because, well human decency. Turns out when I went to order, he had paid for my drink. It made my morning! Then Starbucks went and ruined it by making the wrong drink, but that was probably partially my fault, since I was talking on the phone while ordering, so the staff might’ve misheard me.
Then later last night I received a text from a guy I messed around with a LONG time ago, and he straight up asked me to be his girlfriend like right off the bat. UMMM What? Don’t get me wrong, I am an amazing lady 😉 but I was just shocked. First, because now at 29, this is actually the first time a man had asked me to be his girlfriend (don’t you feel privileged to be part of it lol), but more so because it literally came out of nowhere. I hadn’t even seen/talked/sms’d this guy all year, like it’s been months and now all of a sudden you wanna date me? Not only have I not thought of you once during this time but I don’t find you attractive or see any potential in you whatsoever. So thank you, but no thanks. Also a word to the wise, if you’re planning on asking a chick to be your girlfriend, maybe build up to it… not a text after months of not speaking… I dunno just sayin’.
Then this morning, I dropped the kids off at day care and this Dad I see maybe once every 2 weeks or so was there. Every time I see him he always makes a big deal of saying good morning or asking how I am, whereas for me, I’m more of a get in get out, the less human interaction that early in the morning the better, type person. Anyways this morning he literally said word for word “Oh my God you look beautiful today” At first I was shocked, and a little offended, like what? You think I look like trash every other day? (Because let’s face it, that’s most likely the truth lol) But then I just took the compliment for what it was and enjoyed it. It’s amazing how such a genuine comment can make a woman’s day. Then just now, I had to run to the pharmacy during my lunch and then walked to the post office, and I had doors held open for me galore. Even when it was from an awkward distance and I kinda felt like I had to walk quicker so they didn’t have to wait… Those men didn’t mind lol. Then to top it all off, the guy in front of me in the line at the post office gave me a stamp he had just bought so that I didn’t have to buy a whole pack. Yep I used it to mail a letter to K, but that guy doesn’t know that.
It’s just been a definite confidence booster that’s for sure.
So I knew that even when we had a visitor in the office this morning who felt the need to bring a 50 pack of TimBits (or donut holes for those of you less fortunate) for the 3 of us, it was worth it for me to not have any. It was worth it for me to stay dedicated to Jenny (lol). Because I’m feeling good. I’m looking good. And other people are noticing.
So why mess with a good thing?
