Every once in a while in Life I’ve seen a cartoon character to whom I can – perhaps alarmingly – relate. Yes, well…the other evening I went to Target to pick up some batteries and as I passed by the toy section I found myself audibly gasping out loud and saying “oh my god, its ME!”
There it was. . .a disgruntled, angry-looking bunny toy, ears slightly askew, who (despite his obvious displeasure) made me laugh. Seems unfair to associate with something that sounds incredibly negative-leaning, no? Nah. I’m one of the happiest people I know – I love to laugh, and prefer to see the good int he World. I’m aware of the not-so-stellar, but let’s say that I’d rather air on focusing on what’s right, lest I drive my Empathetic self into the doldrums! No rosy-colored glasses, just the deliberate aim to keep my spirits lifted. So why, then, Snowball? It isn’t just the wedding planning, rest assured. . .!
I look all sweet an innocent when I think I might be able to go train, or get in extra credits for Marital Arts. I make the same face when you say “I have steamed chicken and vegggiiiess…” “YOU DO!?” *wide eyes and lashes batting*
This is when you actually show me that you have protein. . .When you say we get to train weapons this week, OR I get to the gym and no one else is there. . . YOU know the feeling!
But when I do go to lift, or to the Dojo, and there are a shit-ton of people, then I get a little ugly and try to figure out how to clear them out.
By the time I get through most of my morning, I’m pretty ravenous. This really does sum it up. . .
After nine Martial Art Classes a week – Gracie Combatives Jiu-Jitsu, Reflex Development, and Ninjutsu, plus lifting and cardio? I’m BEAT!
PS…did I mention my mother calls me “Bunny”? Yes, probably for 37 of my 38 years. I guess you could say there’s a resemblance. 😉
