This was pretty damn relevant for me today: http://slave-pug.livejournal.com/123278.html
 
' “What irritates us in the first place is that our wishes are not fulfilled. But remaining upset does nothing to help fulfill those wishes. So we neither fulfill our wishes nor regain our cheerfulness. This disconcerted state, from which anger can grow, is most dangerous. We should never try to let our happy frame of mind be disturbed. Whether we are suffering at present or have suffered in the past, there is no reason to be unhappy.”

I don't know if I can be happy all the time, nor do I believe that I have to be. I take the above insight to be more of a reminder to seek contentment in all moments: even when the moments are not pretty or fun - even when the moments are stressful or hurtful. I will still feel hurt, sadness, frustration, and negativity at times and I need to work hard at realizing and acknowledging the good and peacefulness even within such moments.'


I love my dear friend!!

I went skiing this weekend. :) It was great fun, especially as it was a weekend away with byronium. I needed a chance to unplug for a bit.

Skiing was good - spring skiing conditions;[livejournal.com profile] byronium spent some time on his ass snowboarding, which was fun for me to watch because I'm a mean girl, and him too - even tho he was falling over, the smile on his face was awesome. (I love joyful people! They remind me to be joyful on the outside too)

A funny thing that happened - apparently, while driving up, I passed out in the passenger seat (as usual, i'm the worst passenger on roadtrips) and we were going around some fun curves in the moonlight, and I (in my sleep) said, "w00t!". 

Another adventure during the trip was a visit to the local trashy lingerie shop. Byronium and I were apparently the only visitors in a while and ended up in some really funny conversations with the VERY young girls there. I felt like a dirty old man. Srsly. Tho one of them TOTALLY looked like a 20yr old Tina Fey, which made it even funnier.

Lots of falling down mountains, both controlled and uncontrolled.

Sunday, the only problem was that the sun was hiding, and some of the trails were wiped out -  I hate that. :( Makes it hard to ski when I can't see what I'm skiing on.[livejournal.com profile] byronium couldnt find boots in his size so ended up skiing instead.  still, today was more fun 'cause I actually spent more of it skiing with B, vs abandoning him to a lesson and finding trails on my own.

The end of the day was pretty great - went to check out boots at the pro shop, and got fitted... into a pair I think that
[livejournal.com profile] lil_brown_batrecommended I look at at the start of the season due to its low volume boot and narrow profile (technica something or anothers!). They fit _awesome_ tho I still think an insole will be great for next season. The Master Bootfitter (Jet. Kid you not, his name was Jet) was really sweet and bought out a ton of boots and was very knowledgeable about what was good / bad / indifferent about each style. He said his gf had the same boot I bought, and always asked him to help put it on, so he kindly showed byronium what HE had to do, saying, "get used to it, she's gonna make you help her..."  Byronium just laughed and said, "she's already very spoiled!"

I'm not spoiled, even tho I'll say I am. I am well taken care of, well loved and shown and told; which really, is how it ought to be. I'm not ever going to settle for less than being treated well in any relationship of any importance.
