I don't know about you, but I could definitely use another day or two attached to my weekend! The days and weeks- and weekends- are going by too quickly for my liking. I need time to slow down a bit, I feel like everything is passing me by, that's how quickly time is moving.
Despite the weekend ending too quickly, I had a pretty good one. The Battle of Cooks Mills, which was part of the War of 1812, took place 200 years ago. In honour of this anniversary, they had a re0enactment of the battle. It was interesting too see and learn about the way of life in 1812. There were over 400 actors involved and a number of people in the crowd also got into the reenactment and dressed up. I was also invited to a Hungarian Church lunch. One of the ladies at the table started to speak to me in Hungarian and I had no idea what she was saying to me, but the food was pretty good.
This week is going to be a busy one. I have an event for work on Thursday and tomorrow is our off-site prep day. I'm also going to attempt to go to the movies with friends- the last movie I saw in the theatre was The Great and Powerful Oz, so it's been awhile- and I'm meeting a friend for dinner, whom I haven't seen since August! Lots going on and lots to look forward too.
Recently, I have really been struggling. There have been a lot of changes over the past year, but not improvements. There has been a lot of negativity and unhappiness and I thought this quote would be the perfect inspiration for this week:
I don't feel that I am in a situation where I need "revenge", but then again I am not a vengeful person. I feel like there is someone in my life who is trying to "break" me. Normally, I would just cut this "toxic" person from my life and move on. Unfortunately, that is not an option at the present moment.
This quote is what I need to do- smile and move on. Every time this person is negative towards, I need to bite my tongue (which I have been doing), but just smile and move on with my day. This is easier said then done, but it is inspiration, right? I just need to remember this quote, smile and move on. I need to show this person, they don't get to me and have little influence and effect on my life.
