Happy

Happy - Leona Lewis
Someone once told me that you have to choose what you win or lose. You can't have everything don't you take chances. Might feel the pain, don't you love in vain. Cause love won't set you free. I can't stand by the side and watch this life pass me by. So unhappy, but safe as could be. So what if it hurts me? So what if I break down? So what if this world just throws me off the edge? My feet run out of ground. I gotta find my place. I wanna hear my sound. Don't care about all the pain in front of me, cause I'm just trying to be happy, yeah. Just wanna be happy. 

I'm sitting on the couch very very aware of my abs. They hurt. No, they don't hurt actually, but they are letting me know they are there. I wonder when sit-ups (with a 7lb medicine ball no less) got to be ...easy. Or when doing crunches and holding for 5 seconds each got to be easy. When did the number of a guy who owns a running store and is going to put together my 5k training plan... get to be exciting? Maybe at the same time that I realized I'm pretty flipping happy.

I look forward to the gym. I like the burn. I'm obsessed now with tracking my calories and exercise on FitDay.com. Still not hitting even 1200/day, but working on it. I got asked today if I'm having a mid-life crisis. Jokingly I said "yes, bite me". But in reality, this isn't a crisis. This is just mid-life. The motorcycle I want to buy next spring MIGHT be a mid-life crisis. Or a reward. I'm going with reward.

On a different note. Steven Slater may just be my hero. I've flown a LOT, and starting to fly a lot more and I love this guy. Maybe it's that I'm in the industry - but you really do get to a point that you can't take any more. People flying can be downright horrible - treating flight attendants like dirt. They are the same people that treat front desk staff like crap too. I can't think of a better way to go out than down the emergency landing slide with a couple of beers in hand. Ok, I'd probably have taken some vodka, but that's just semantics. People seem either appalled at what he did, or they are 100% behind him. I'd guess that the split is between those in the service industry and those not. I'm sure there were better ways to handle it, but I still admire the guy for refusing to take more. Maybe there's something to be said for that - not to the degree he did, but in day to day. If you're not happy... change it.


So what if it hurts me? So what if it breaks me down? So what if this world just throws me off the edge? ....Don't care about all the pain in front of me, cause I'm just trying to be happy, yeah. Just wanna be happy.

  1. People Flying...probably also the same people who make comments like, "Teachers only work 9 months (or...if you work @RNESU, 10 months!) of the year and work from 8AM-3pm. Underworked and overpaid." Just want to smack them! Keep up the good work Meg. Congrats on 15 pounds and 9 inches.
