What a Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino Means to Me.




I saw this picture today when I was at Target...and I wanted that front one.

The Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino.

And I don't even drink coffee.

This is how I know when things are not going well. I start craving crap that I don't even like and stuff that I may like but makes me feel physically or emotionally awful. I won't indulge because it will make me sick, but the cravings can be pretty strong and are definitely a mood-barometer.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, this is a "woe is me" post.

I know that in this season of greetings, amidst the tidings of comfort and joy, I should be celebrating and expressing gratitude for all I can do, all that I have, and all that there is. Instead, I am stuck in what I can't do, what I don't have, and what there isn't. For the moment, I am mired in negativity...and it super sucks. The ridiculous guilt for being on such a downer compounds the crappy feelings, too. Great.

This doesn't happen to me very often, but when it does...

Okay.

So what am I going to do to try and drag my sorry ass out of this abyss?

Against my better judgement, I am going to go for a run. The run in and of itself is not what is 'against my better judgement.' It's what I am going to attempt during my run that is 'against my better judgement.'

No, I'm not going to tell you what it is. I'll tell you later... and I'll tell you if it worked.

And I may end up wishing that I had just opted for the dang frappuccino.

  1. Hey girlfriend, I hope you feel better soon! Sending you LOTS of hugs and warm thoughts. Don't feel like such a downer, because the holidays tend to have that effect on people- it could be the happiest time for some, but also the lowest for others. I know it does crazy things to my head :))

    Um, I just hope you don't try to turn running into any kind of extreme sport, OK? lol. OMG, are you going to run nekkid?!? You make sure to drop me a note after that run, okay, sista?

  17. Blah. sorry about the funk and I hope the run worked its wonders. What is it about the holidays that brings out depression? Stress and not-so-great memories probably.
