If I look tired in these photos, it’s because I am. And I’m okay with that. We keep it real around here, right everyone?

Now, let’s talk EMOTIONS. Are you an emotional person?

I don’t really consider myself to be an “emotional” person. I mean, I certainly cry at stuff. But I mean in general, my emotions are pretty even keel. I do get really excited about stuff, but I’m not easily angered or frustrated or whathaveyou.

Even in this pregnancy (so far) I’ve only been a “crier” a few times early on, but in general, my emotions have stayed pretty much the same.

I don’t know what it is and I’m not sure I was ALWAYS this way, but over the years I’ve just gotten pretty good at not letting my emotions get the best of me. I don’t let things RUIN my day. My parents always taught me that you can start your day over any time… and so I’ve pretty much lived by that mantra.

Have you ever been around that person who is just NEGATIVE all. the. time? I mean, you know who I’m talking about. THAT guy / girl who every third word that comes out of his / her mouth is “woe is me this” or “woe is me that” or “how awful my life is” or “my life is over.”

Those people exhaust me. I try to be sympathetic to a point, but after a while it’s like, “Chin up, pup!

I’ve just never been one of those people. I’m more of the “overly-optimistic-sometimes-to-a-fault” type of person. And I like it that way.

Sure, there are days when I’m just feeling down on my luck or whatever, but I’m usually able to bounce back pretty quickly.

I don’t even know what prompted this whole train of thought, really. Or really what my point in sharing it with you is.

But I guess, as I ramble along, I realized maybe it’s just an opportunity for you (and me!) to take a step back today and evaluate – you know, evaluate our attitude and our EMOTIONS. What are we WASTING emotional energy on? Or are we using our emotional energy for good?

Are we building others around us UP with our emotional energy or are we the Negative Nancy no one wants to be around?

For me, and this is just for me, but I don’t think Jesus would want me wasting my emotional energy on negativity, anger, jealousy, or frustration. I know that Jesus loves me (and you!) and only wants me to put my energy into things that uplifting, joyful, and selfless.

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” -Romans 8:28

Anyway. Random, I know. But just some food for thought today. Or something. What do you think?


“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” {1 Peter 4:10}
