cutting up onions. 

even when i do all the tricks your typical happy homemaker magazine or book tells you to do, they DO NOT work. i'm still crying my eyes out and have to walk out the kitchen before i man up (woman up?) to finish cutting up the rest of the onion. as much as i love onions, with how bad i tear up, sometimes i don't know if it's worth it.

enchanted song "so close" by jon maclaughlin.

i do not know what it is about this song. i bawled my eyes out when i first heard it. i cry whenever i hear it. period. and i can't even say its the actual song, but possibly events tied to it that makes me subconsciously start crying. who knows? it might just one of those songs that hits every emotional nerve in my body. and no, patrick dempsey dancing with amy adams in that scene as nothing to do with it. nothing.

titanic line: i'll never let go of you, jack! 

yup, i was one of those sobbing teenagers when rose let go of jack's hand. i would have been screaming, but you ARE, rose! you're letting him go and sink to the bottom of some icy grave! GAH! at the big screen; however, it would have sounded like one loud blubbering mess because i had lost it at that point. 

commercials.

which was pretty much half of the super bowl commercials from last nights. soldiers coming home. puppy and horse friendships. hand me a box of kleenex by the nachos, please! 

finishing up a really good book or tv series.

anytime i finish up a book series, i have a tug of war in my heart. gah! that was so good. and gah! it's over. what am i supposed to do with my life now?! and same with tv series that ryan and i will binge watch on netflix. we end up looking at each other and say, so what we talk about now? okay, okay. totally joking but it's like those characters were a part of our every day lives and were our bffs, so it's always depressing when we don't get to talk about our hang out with them as much. tear.

***

thanks to the clever, witty and inspiring mindy kaling for the inspiration behind this post! her chapter from her book on her "non-traumatic" list is far more hilarious and def worth the read - so you do want to check it out. pinky promise.

and what about you? what's your list of non-traumatic things that make you cry? do share in the comments below or in your blog post!

much love.

  1. Thanks to you I am crying through John Green's book The Fault in Our Stars! Actually, Sabrina had already read it - and she warned me... Sigh. It is so sweet and honest and sad.

  2. You should try the onion "recipe starters" - they're in the freezer section and it's just a bag of already diced onions for like $1. Seriously, best idea ever!!!!!

  3. I love the fault in our stars!!! If you ever get the chance you should read, Gone Girl, I just finished reading it! It's pretty awesome, it keeps you in the whole entire time! You look gorgeous by the way, that bag is amazing!

  5. I have the same issue with onions! My eyes literally swell up like I got punched. I tried all the tricks, too, and the only one that works is chewing very minty gum while cutting! Try it!

  10. I get way too attached to characters in a book or on a show that I'm watching. It's like I miss them when it's over! I had tears in my eyes during the puppy and horse commercial. So sweet!

  11. I also cry while reading really good books or watching some of my favourite tv series. I love that sweater on you, darling. xo

  12. Finishing a good book KILLS me. Absolutely. I don't cry, but when I leave a world of fantastic characters, I feel like my insides are shattering.

  13. You look radiant here, the color of this sweater is divine! I HATE cutting onions for that very reason lol, actually even if someone else is cutting up onions, my eyes can detect that they are around and waters anyway. I cry throughout a series, not just the end. Especially Parenthood or shows featuring Jason Katims in general, he knows how to tug at your heartstrings man. I cried during the last episode of Parenthood when the kids had the sitdown talk with Joel and Julia. Bawling! Made me so sad, that's trauma though right? Lol

  19. I cry all through Titanic, but that part is the worst.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Titanic never fails to get me. I remember seeing that when it first came out in theaters and leaving in tears! I can't help getting choked up when I hear Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go" without crying, and I am not a fan of Celine. Not one bit.

  21. Oh I can never cut onions! But I don't even like them so yeah. Usually movies do it for me or anything when I haven't slept enough.

  22. I cry at videos of people with disabilities or animal movies.

  24. My name is Jenny Ford i want to share my testimonies to people in this forum When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn't have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband's job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr Egoro at EGORO MASTERS TEPMPLE he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there my husband is back to me and also find a good job! This was really a miracle for us, thank you DR EGORO at EGORO MASTERS TEPMPLE you are the best from the bottom of my heart!CONTACT EGORO MASTERS TEMPLE VIA THIS EMAIL: egoromtemple11@gmail.com .CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT YOU SIR HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS egoromtemple11@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS Posted by.

  27. i am miss MONICA from U K, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR.UKO for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found ukospelltemple@yahoo.com a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. two days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 10 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR.UKO released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I'm writing this testimony right now I'm the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that's why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe.All thanks goes to DR.UKO for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as she has done mine for me, she will definitely help you too. ukospelltemple@yahoo.com

  33. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in may this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR ABIZA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony because the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down all because our relationship has been on for four years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and that he also got a new job interview. I didn’t believe it because the spell caster only asked for my name and my boy friends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is {DRABIZASPELLTEMPLE20@HOTMAIL.COM} you can also contact him for help.

  34. what a wonderful world we are living, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! i am Shechan Caroline am from California I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage. Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.oku, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone. The spell caster’s contact is okutemple@gmail.com
