true story… forgot my monday mantra.

October 13, 2009 in BF,mantra,true story

I forgot to put up my Monday Mantra yesterday. True story.

This week is going to be difficult.
I believe I am strong…but I just need to remember that.
I’m addicted to love.
I wish it wasn’t going to be three weeks before I see him again…
I’m jealous of people with spare time.
Soundtrack/Mantra for the week: Breathe…

Also a true story?
I’m working my butt off at the gym just to keep myself busy.
I’m starting to feel ill and don’t know what my deal is.
I’ve got a Junior League meeting tonight and my body is telling me not to go, but, of course, I will.
I refuse to turn on the heat in my apartment because it shouldn’t be this cold out yet… so I’ve been sleeping in sweatpants, a huge sweatshirt and two comforters.
I am really struggling this week. I don’t know what my deal is, but I’m missing him like crazy and I cannot let myself start to cry… If I cry, I won’t stop.
True story.

Aw, sorry you're having a rough week doll! Keep your chin up and focus on taking care of yourself. I might suggest lots of tea, some gentle warming yoga, and chicken noodle soup. You'll get through it!

Keep your chin up! It will be okay. Just remember…it's all happening for a reason.


Chelle October 13, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Big Hugs to you. I truly believe there is nothing harder to handle than a long distant relationship. You ARE strong and he IS worth it. Hang in there.

When all else fails, curl up on your couch, under a blanket, eat chicken noodle soup, and watch chick flicks so you can cry and let it out.

–>Just think, it's going to be snuggle weather soon and you'll be back with your BF to warm up the right way! πŸ™‚

Sorry you're having a tough time right now. I know how hard it can be. Keep your chin up and look forward to when you'll get to snuggle up to him again. Keep pushing forward lady…you can do it!

Awww… sending big hugs your way! Remember – distance makes the heart grow fonder! Not that, that helps any – but…. ;o) Glad you have something to keep you busy but sorry to hear that you are not feeling well at the same time. However, it could have something to do with refusing to turn on your heat! LOL Drink lots of OJ my friend! Big hugs! Trac~:o)

Keep your head up! You can get through this week!


HRH October 13, 2009 at 2:55 pm

oh no girl – 3 weeks sounds like a lifetime when it stands between you and your love. im sorry! i know the feeling. but just keep yourself busy like you are doing and hopefully time will fly for you.

ps – matt and i didnt turn on the heat ONCE all last winter. this year we are prepared with snuggies to keep us warm. but texas is a teeny tiny bit warmer than ny!!


JW.BW October 13, 2009 at 2:56 pm

Hang in there. I hope your 3 weeks goes by fast!!!

You know…you are so frequently jealous of people with free time. Maybe (and it's just a suggestion) it's an indication that you need to free up some time for yourself? We can get sucked up in plans & obligations & schedules to the point of running ourselves ragged. It's important to factor in free time, just like it's important to make “entertainment funds” part of your budget. You *need* these things; they're good for your soul.


Summer Wind October 13, 2009 at 3:42 pm

Keep staying strong!! 3 weeks will be here before you know it! Just try and keep busy!


Jessica October 13, 2009 at 5:03 pm

I worry about you so much, Rachel! Have I told you that before? I admire you for all of your strength during this big change in your life. I would think that being away from the BF for any significant amount of time is difficult, and you're holding together so well. Just let yourself have a bad week and get back with it next week! πŸ™‚


Seashells&Sunshine October 13, 2009 at 5:41 pm

Awww, Rachel. Hang in there…. I know how hard huge changes are, especially when you do them alone. πŸ™ Try to stay strong because it will end up being a good decision in the end. Hopefully bf will be able to be with you soon, and you're good at keeping yourself busy, too! Three weeks will fly by!


Southern Champagne Wishes October 13, 2009 at 5:52 pm

I'm so sorry you're having a difficult week so far. Maybe it seems worse because you aren't feeling well, too.

I hope that the time flies by so that you get to see BF again before you know it!

Plus, you must be in some rockin' shape if you go to the gym that much. So jealous of your motivation!


JAMIE October 13, 2009 at 5:58 pm

Three weeks apart is far too long! πŸ™


LG October 13, 2009 at 6:36 pm

i am sorry this will be a rough week!
but hopefully it will be over before you know it!

your blog is too cute! πŸ™‚


Optimistic Pessimist October 13, 2009 at 8:29 pm

i feel your pain with the cold! my parents refuse to turn the heat on and it is cold. last night i wore two sweaters, two pairs of socks and had to wrap a comforter around me while i watched tv. i hate the cold.


Mrs. C. October 14, 2009 at 12:25 am

Hang in there. I had a long distance relationship with my then boyfriend,now fiance, for 3 years. We finally live in the same city and I can honestly say that those years apart, while exceedingly difficult, really brought us closer. We really learned to appreciate each other and it was wonderful to get that 'falling in love feeling' each time we saw each other. Hang in there. I promise it will be worth it in the end.


Kristin October 14, 2009 at 1:47 am

I hope it gets easier for you!!


Chele76 October 14, 2009 at 2:31 am

(((big hugs))) hon. You are in a tough situation right now, but it will get better. Keep fighting the ick and you will get through this. We're all here for you and thinking of you.


Gwen October 14, 2009 at 1:39 pm

I'm sending prayers your way!!! You can get through this…I know you can. XOXO

P.S. I'm jealous of people with spare time too. πŸ™‚


Melly Mel October 15, 2009 at 5:43 am

Thank you so much!!! You are so sweet. I appreciate the compliment. I am sending you my prayers as well!!!


Busy Bee Lauren October 15, 2009 at 5:07 pm

I am jealous of people with spare time, too. Srsly.


{JANE} October 15, 2009 at 7:47 pm

I am so sorry you're not feel very well! Hope the week only gets better!

PS: Left you something on my blog!


Carolyn October 15, 2009 at 8:50 pm

1. Turn on the heat

2. Take a day off from the gym and indulge in a hot drink + good movie instead

3. Cry if you want to cry!! It's cathartic

4. I love you!!!


Lil' Woman October 16, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Huge hugs your way!!
I hope the weeks fly by for you so you can see your lovie! πŸ™‚
