Well, today I thought I would be inventive and bring cereal for lunch to work- naturally I go to Honey Bunches of Oats. It's a classic and you can never go wrong with some good bunches. Well, I needed to go buy some milk for my honey bunches so I roll on over to the closest Maverick. Walk in, find the milk, and what do I find? Only 2% milk or chocolate milk. Now this isn't ANY kind of milk- it is Cream 'O Weber milk... Cream 'O Weber CHOCOLATE milk that is.
Well, here was a predicament... do I get the 2% milk (which I don't like, and I will probably have left over milk and then I will have to throw it away)? Or do I stick with the drink that has never let me down- good ol Cream 'O Weber Chocolate milk?
Well, I grabbed the 2% walked half way over to the cash register and then pivoted right then and there right back to the fridge. Quickly placed the 2% back and caved into my unhealthy eating side of Elise. This comes out often. :)
So with choco milk in hand, I pay, get back to my desk, pour it into my bowl with cereal and begin to eat. Seriously- NOT BAD! I couldn't even really taste the chocolate milk, but it has resulted in a very sick stomach, tired eyes, and wanting to go lay down.
Moral: Drink chocolate milk responsibly.
I have realized in the past few couple of months how badly I feel like I need to be accepted by everyone. And it's not just that I feel like I alone need to be accepted, but I feel like what I do needs to be accepted also. This can place a lot of stress on me and it's so frustrating sometimes. The first time I started realizing it was when I sent out our wedding announcements- Andrew and I spent a lot of time working with our invitation girl on those and I was so excited to see the final product and to share it with my family and friends. I remember showing people or people saying they got it and they never said if they liked it, or even if they didn't like it! It's the silence that kills me. That is when my mind starts to wander and then I convince myself that those people don't like it and then I stress over it and think about how I could've done things better.
(This is how I felt... :)!! )the end.
Do you ever have those times that you can feel God guiding your life and letting you know that you are doing things right? I have felt that way for the past week and I couldn't be happier! I have had some major blessings come my way with work, teaching Sunday School to the 14-15 year olds, and just life in general. It is incredible to me to see how as I am doing what I am supposed to, God creates a way for other things to happen. I feel so blessed right now... this is all. :)
