When life feels harsh

Notice I said "feels". It's all a matter of perception. I have a great life. Lately for various reasons it has felt a bit tough. I am letting things stress me too much. I have a lot to do, but it will get done. Unexpected difficulties will be overcome somehow. I will eventually get over the fact that someone really doesn't like me. (Having a hard time with that one, soul searching in order there.) And so the snow ball rolls down the hill seeming unstoppable. I do have control over how I feel about it and how I handle things. I gave myself a talking to last night after a special moment and made a list of things that make me happy. It's not the whole list but I don't want you to stop looking at my blog for fear of being bored to insanity. So, here goes.....
~
This is a bit of materialistic happiness but I love boots and these are my newest and silliest by far. Can't help it. The brown pair are Sherie's fault. Oh yeah, it is two pair. I just tried on one each to make sure they fit.......

This one represents the happines of friends. My favorite model showing off something I made. Her mom never seems to tire of me saying try it on Emily and take a picture too!!!!
~
Here's the family bit for now.... The kids move away but these two just keep staying around. They like us and make us laugh.







How can you not love them?

Last but not least, this represents everything good. Babies just do that to me. This one is gorgeous and both she and her mom are doing great! Kara, Kelly and I went to see Adrienne and Elora yesterday. Elora was born Monday weighing in at 7.2 pounds and 19 1/2 inches long. (I really hope I got that right) We took A LOT of pictures of them and baby and us with the baby. Here are just a few. Hope they make you happy too!






Lest you think I exaggerate about the crazy things that keep happening to me........while uploading all these beautiful pics to my computer and deleting them from my camera, it shut down on me. Blue screen, error report crash type stuff. I had to wait all night before I knew the pictures were still there.

awwww, this baby is just gorgeous! sooo sweet..

I like the boots! And want to know what's going on in your life?? This was cryptic!

Mary said...

Who ever doesn't like you, just doesn't know you well enough cause there just isn't anything to not like about you. I really like you, and am really happy to have you in my life =-) Oh, and I loved all your pictures, Elora looks like a baby doll.

Corinnea! I LOVE YOU, girl!!! Don't let any unhappy soul get to you...Let only possitive Karma surround you... The boots are lovely and I bet you look HOT in them. The Baby is adorable. Babies make me tear up, of course of happiness (new life and JOY). They are sooo sweet and tender. I think she looks like Brandon. By the way GREAT pics.

corinnea said...

Thanks guys. I should have said that all the pics but the little hand were taken by Kelly. I did the cropping..... We're such a team!

Too bad that one of Kara ended up blurry. Did I get any good ones of her? Send me some good ones of Adrienne and baby and I'll put some soft filters on them.

And you KNOW you are LOVED like crazy. I know that doesn't make annoyingness go away, but at least it can help remind you of why you do what you do. Kill them with kindness right? Don't forget the second half of that sentence. You can't end at "kill them!" Haha!

Well we will have to talk about all of that yuckiness later so I can know who to beat up! ...but if it makes you feel any better I know what you are going through... and it sucks... let me know how you get over it because I'm still not.
The baby is adorable! Thanks for the sneak peak at that hair you keep not showing....can I see a whole picture of it??
I LOVE the boots where did you get the brown ones? They are awesome!
Give brinkley a hug and Evie a squeeze. He is looking so gentleman like these days I really miss him! And she is looking evil...
That top is so stinking cute and Emily as always is absolutely adorable in it.

Joan's Good Life said...

UNbelievable! How can anyone not like you? And why are you letting them get to you? Aren't you the one who always told me to "kill them with kindness"? You! The queen of kindness...! I feel so sad that someone is making you so sad. I just wanna stomp on that person! I miss you! Wish I could give you a hug! =-{
As I pack today (getting massive amounts of paper cuts trying to pack ALL my dishes and glass ware...) I'll say a constant prayer for you! Be like a duck...let the uglies roll off your back. Love you sweetie!

Love the boots and the socks, good for you for getting them both. and yes Sherie is a bad influence(sp?). She MADE me buy a pair of the most expensive, silly sandles yesterday, her working in a shoe is not good..the baby is beautiful, good pictures Kelly!! okay, no one messes with momma's baby girl, I'm on my way!! I know it is hard but give the 'not liking you' back to them, its their responsiblity,not yours. You are not responsible for their insecurities and for them to not like YOU means they have a lot of insecurities. I'm sure they have some emotional issues........

First off, mad props on the boots, you will seriously live in the baby fats, i would sleep in them but doug just thinks its wierd. Second, dont know exactly whats going on, but hate that your in pain, people adore you, they always have, you just have that gift, but when you come up against that one who for some reason is just cruel... well it rips you up. So there are two paths as is see it, if it is someone you love, keep loving them and cry when you have to and keep creating, and if its someone you dont love, just tell them to piss off, and be done with them, and keep creating. My boss at the shoe store doenst like me cause he knows i really dont like him, the mutuality works. I love you madly and hopes this passes soon for you.

scrumptious boots! I'm sorry life seems to be dragging on you of late. You're too great of a person for that to happen to, but knowing how great you are, I know you'll pull through, shining on the other side of the adversity! Keep smiling, beautiful lady!!
That baby girl is gorgeous!
Have a good rest of your week, keep your chin up, and take a deep breath! :)
<3lots of love!!!

TheBlackForrist said...

wow... lots of love in your comments already =D honestly, their loss (the person not liking you) I love boots too, I was going to post pics of TWO new pairs I just got, hehe. The pic of Elora's little ear with Adie in the background is awesome!

corinnea said...

A HUGE thank you to everyone for making me feel better. I do, like I said I know I have a great life and you all are part of the reason for that!!! I feel like a big dork for letting it stress me, like I said, my issue to work on. If you all keep liking me that makes the world better. If not, just please tell me to my face!!!! In a nice way of course. ha ha ha

sasha said...
