The one with rain, rainbows, and a Friday Favourites Reversal

Rain = not always my favourite because it makes my hair look like this

imageBUT it also brings rainbows like this that make me happy


Walking in the pouring rain to uni = not my favourite BUT I love my class and that means it is worth it, brief dynamic psychotherapy is super interesting FYI šŸ™‚


Thinking that my class was at 9am when really it’s at midday, getting to uni at early o’clock = not my favourite BUT it gives me extra study time before class which I hadn’t expected to be able to do.

Running out of food at home (man I am disorganised these days) = not my favourite BUT it means I am forced to hang out at the restaurant where I work and eat delicious food with bestie for lunch…. Pretty happy about this really šŸ™‚


Being wet from the rain at uni = not my favourite BUT I had managed to plan ahead and brought spare shoes, socks, and a hot water bottle…. Next step will be bringing my slippers to uni. And my pillow…


Two huge essays due on Sunday = not my favourite BUT it is two essays closer to finishing my masters šŸ™‚

A hole in the crotch of my favourite jeans (and who knows how long I have been walking around with it like that…) = not my favourite BUT it means I get to practice not being attached, which is something I am constantly trying to work on. I don’t think anyone needs to see a pic of this…

Not having time to run = not my favourite BUT it is my choice cos there is no way I am waking up at an ungodly hour after getting to bed at 2am (that coffee at 5pm was not a good idea…) AND it makes me appreciate how much I love running and crave a good beastie run sooo bad, which I will be pounding out ASAP tomorrow. I am wearing my Garmin to remind me about it while I am craving it today… I have running addiction issues šŸ˜‰


Coming home to a leaking ceiling…. NOT my favourite at all…. BUT I would rather have it happen now and get it fixed now I guess… Oh hi welcome to our home, yes it is multifunctional as a swimming pool, fun right?

I really hope this didn’t come across as complainy in any way! I was going more for the “life doesn’t always go perfectly but it’s still awesome” perspective šŸ™‚ these were just some tiny things in my day which weren’t ideal but when I thought about it I realised how insignificant they all were and that they all actually had a major upside! Lots of rainbows amongst the rain. Wow I am deep šŸ˜‰

What were some of your Friday things that weren’t your favourite but that worked out great anyway?

  1. You have such a great, “glass half-full instead of half-empty” perspective! I love how you turned all of the negative things in your day into positives.

    Not my favorite- forgetting to turn in my key when I moved out of my apartment (which is a big charge) but them letting me drive back and turn it later anyway!

  2. It’s all about seeing things in a different way.
    Oh, and I can totally relate to “rain hair”. it rains most of the time here in Manchester, so I have just given up with my hair.
