Hey y’all!! I hope that you all had a great weekend. Mine was very nice, but Sunday turned out to be such an incredible day!
I almost let myself sleep in again, but I knew that I needed to go, I needed my spirit to be lifted. I’ve expressed lately that I have been going through bouts of feeling very negative and sad and I can’t pinpoint why exactly I have been feeling this way, but I do know that I have no reason to be. I have the most loving family, a beautiful roof over my head, yummy food, and many other things to be thankful for. My main problem is that I worry about so many things and I overthink almost everything for no reason and it gets me so worked up sometimes.
Yesterday’s service was such a powerful message for me. Just going to church reminded me of how there are still kind people in the world. I felt so comfortable around people I didn’t know and happy when they held the door open for me or simply said “hello.” It was such a nice thing to experience while hearing about all of the horror taking place in our world. The service also reminded me to not worry about things, to pray when I start to worry, and to remember that God has a plan for me. None of us can make our lives go the way we think they should go. Starting yesterday I decided to put all of my faith in Him and to just enjoy life. I go through every day trying to control everything instead of being thankful and happy for the wonderful life I was given, but I’m not letting that happen anymore.
After church, I met my family for one of the best days ever!! We ate lunch at Piada and I ordered the pasta carbonara, which is Angel hair pasta, spinich, grilled chicken, bacon, and Parmesan Alfredo sauce.On a whim we decided to go to the Aquarium in Downtown Houston. It was gray outside when we got there, which was a blessing since the sun wasn’t beaming down on us all day!
After the aquarium, we had dinner at a place called The Hobbit Cafe.
I had a delicious glass of Malbec with my meal. I loved the glass that they served it in.
Gollum was creeping in the corner.
All of the decor in the cafe was so cool! They had paintings and drawings from the books and original cartoons, along withtons of replicas and movie posters.
Having such a great experience on Sunday really helped me feel positive again. We can accomplish so much in life with a good mindset.
Can’t wait to watch the Bachelorette this evening!!
I hope that you all have a great week and remember to stay positive!! Love you all and I’ll be back very soon!
