Do you remember being a kid and declaring a day as “Opposite Day” so that you could piss off your mom by doing the exact opposite of what she told you to do?
This is a genius move as a kid. Because when you got in trouble for not obeying you could simply shrug your shoulders as if the situation was out of your hands and say, “But its opposite day.”
I kind of feel like life is playing this little trick on me at the moment but instead of being incredibly annoying it’s actually worked out in my favor.
Today when I woke up I had this overwhelming feeling that I was pretty awesome. No, not pretty awesome… really awesome.
I have no idea why I felt this way because in the past two weeks I have managed to crash my car, throw out my back and break my dishwasher… that’s not awesome.
When I first started writing this blog I was looking for this moment to arrive. I thought it would happen when I weighed forty pounds less, was immaculately dressed and incredibly organized.
None of that is actually the case but I didn’t want to waste time thinking about that because moments like this are fleeting. So instead, I took a moment to revel in my imperfect glory.
While I was enjoying how awesome I was I decided to jump on the scale and take a sneak peek to see how bad the damage had been since I haven’t been able to workout due to my back injury. I blinked three times when I saw that number because there was no way that it made any sense. I know I’m not supposed to equate how awesome I am by any type of number but it definitely confirmed that things are going my way even when things aren’t really going my way.
I know… I’m just as confused as you are.
Since it was opposite day, I decided to go to the gym and fit in a workout even though I haven’t officially been cleared by the professionals. I didn’t lift any weights but I did get to do a bit of cardio. I had no idea how much I missed sweating on purpose… gross but true.
Then I went outside and picked a ton of weeds another no, no… I’m such a rebel.
I’m sure tomorrow things will go back to normal. That’s when we’ll find out how my back feels.
Keep your fingers crossed, will ya?
