It’s the weekly SYW again which is always fun and a great reason to stay blogging ❤️ You can join anytime by going 👉 here.
Here are my answers to this week’s questions:
Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?
Oh definitely a craft studio 😍 How wonderful to walk into an entire room and be greeted with things that represent and inspire your creative side. I mean, merely walking into the space would probably be enough to lift your mood, you don’t even have to create. Over here would be my knitting and crochet corner, over there would be my aromatherapy stuff (I’d make it look medieval because it’s kinda like mixing magic potions & such 😁). And there’d be my potted plants strategically positioned here and there …
Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)
I’m partly cloudy but sunshine is breaking through. I want to be completely sunny, but I’m sleep-deprived and flabby, so … Just keepin’ it real 🙄 Oh and there’s definitely a chance for showers because I also feel weepy, they call it post-partum blues and it just sneaks up on me out of nowhere 😭
If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?
Hmmm .. I’m stumped on this one 🤔 Sorry but right now all I can think of is a date in the (hopefully) near future when everyone is sleeping beautifully through the night and I no longer look like a cloud 😁
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I’ve been feeling down about my shape recently. When the husband takes pictures of the baby I always want to be out of it because I look so … round 😟 I mean, I expected this of course but I’m like, dear God, will I ever get my former glory back? And when?
On the local E! channel, I saw a snippet of an interview with an Asian celebrity/model. She was talking about her life and stuff but I wasn’t really paying attention because I was noticing instead that she still looked flabby in spite of giving birth about 2 years ago. She was wearing a lot of make-up to contour her face to look slimmer, she was still very beautiful, but her face was undoubtedly plump. She wore black and hid her arms with strategically placed jackets, and throughout the interview there wasn’t a full shot of her, it was always just from the waist up.
And seeing her that way, knowing that she gave birth about 2 years ago already, put me in a better mood. I mean, she’s practically living in the spotlight and she’s still carrying excess lbs. So why be so hard on myself?
I felt so good I gobbled up 2 McDonald’s apple pies immediately, in one sitting! 🤣
I need a plan!
