Hello everyone! I'm slowly but surely making my way around blogs and catching up with all the information you've been providing, and I'm loving it! Honestly, when it comes to people looking for advice, or help, and want real people's opinions and feelings on issues, the internet is filled with blogs for everything under the sun. I, myself, enjoy reading health & fitness blogs, because it helps to keep me on track, and keeps me focused on what it is I want to do and how I want to live my life. There are blogs from the totally serious health and fitness guru's to the light hearted housewives that find humor in their struggles. I love it, and I follow a variety of it all.
Working three jobs has definitely taken it's toll on my schedule, as well as the amount of time I have to do the things I want to do. I know I need to get to the gym more, or get up that extra hour earlier in the morning, and get my workouts in. When I DO have a full day off, it seems the last thing on my mind is getting that workout in, when all I want to do is enjoy and relax and try to get some housework done. Even THAT has fallen somewhat to the wayside, but that will have to be kicked into gear as I prepare to sort through all my things, sell what I can, and pack and forward the things I wish to keep. (BTW, anyone wanna buy a treadmill? I can't take it with me! LOL) I have to admit I do feel a bit overwhelmed, but I just need to take one day at a time and set some short term goals for myself, and that will lead me to complete my ultimate goals.
There have been a lot of things happening around me that have really made me feel blessed and appreciate the things and the people I have in my life. After events that transpired this past year, I really felt this was going to be a hard year for me, but it's taken a total "180*" and I totally feel rejuvinated and on the right path. Having gotten rid of all the negativity and bullsh*t in my life, and it has opened my eyes to all that is positive and worthwhile. Most importantly, for the first time in my life, I feel secure. Honestly, and truly secure. It's an amazing feeling!! I wish I could bottle this up and sell it, but it's up to each of us as individuals to take our own journey and discover that for ourselves. Support and love has come from so many unexpected places, and I couldn't be happier.
Guess all I have to say is to make sure to surround yourself with positive people and allow the tears of pain and heartache turn in to tears of joy, appreciation and love. Have a great week everyone! *hugs*
