I love the phrase, “Don’t be bitter, be better.”
But, sometimes it’s okay to be bitter. (source)
Most of the time it’s not okay to be bitter though.
Like, if you have a bad run because you just came back from an amazing beach side vacation and are lacking sleep – not okay to be bitter. No body wants to hear you bitch about that. Can I get an ‘Amen!’?
Or if you ate way too much on said vacation and are having trouble zipping up your pants, – suck it up and clean up your eats. But, don’t be bitter.
Or even if most of your clothes smell like mold because they have been damp for a week as you were living out of your suitcase – don’t be bitter. I mean, it’s not like they fit anyways, right?
You can however be bitter on the following occasions:
1. You get your period the week of your marathon. F word.
2. You finally let your husband cook and he cooks better than you.
Like tonight when Ben made a tofu stir-fry with 3 kinds of nuts:
And it gets better…
Anyways, I am on a mission to recreate this drink at home.
So for now, I have nothing to be bitter about. That is unless Aunt Flo comes knocking on my door in 35 days…
