Good morning! First of all, I wanted to inform you all that comfy shoes definitely beat out heels with ya’ll. But it seems like a lot of you can appreciate a killer pair of heels as well. Also, I am wearing a lovely pair of flats today and my feet love me for it. They’d love a foot massage even more, but that’s neither here nor there.
Second of all, I believe that there are always two dynamics working in this world. The things that could have happened and the things that did happen. This post will be an exploration of those dynamics
On one hand, I could have cooked up a delicious meal last night – something along the lines of tofu cubes or lentil stew, both of which I have purchased all the ingredients for and need to make soon.
But on the other hand, I had 4 servings of leftover paella to eat up. So I went with that instead.
Even better than the night before, because the saffron had time to seep into the rice and veggies. Yum-o.
On one hand, I could have woken up at 5 a.m. this morning via the two alarms that I thought I had set and gone to the gym for a strength workout.
But on the other hand, I woke up at 6:15 a.m. with no memory of any alarms ever ringing.
I’m not sure if I slept through them, turned them off, or just dreamed setting them in the first place. One of the great mysteries of life.
So… on one hand, I could have decided to just give in a go back to sleep since I obviously didn’t have time to make it to the gym.
But on the other hand, I knew that I could still get in a BTN (better than nothing) workout if I got my booty out of bed. So I did, and I did some leg & ab exercises before getting ready for work.
On one hand, I could have had this measly orange for breakfast this morning since my BTN workout trumped my smoothie making.
But on the other hand, there were Panera bagels in the kitchen when I strolled into work. So I snatched up an Asiago cheese bagel, which is so flavorful that it only needs the thinnest smear of cream cheese, and went along my merry way.
The orange will make a delicious snack later
On one hand, I could be stressed out about work today because it is going to be a super serious day.
But on the other hand, I’m choosing to revel in the fact that it’s Friday and busy myself with all the never-ending tasks at hand in hopes that the day zips by so I can enjoy another lovely weekend!
What’s one thing that could have happened one way in your day, but went in a whole other direction?
