Month two of 2016. Today went pretty well as far as Mondays go! Had a good work day, got laundry and dishes done early in the morning, got my workout(s) in, ate healthy all day, booked more stuff for my birthday trip to Napa Valley and also booked stuff for an awesome trip in March to celebrate awesome ladies supporting each other, networking, healing, learning, growing <– need I go on? And… it’s in Orlando. PS, that’s a helluva lot warmer than Wisconsin in March.
I have had so much on my mind lately. The days are flying by and the nights are filled with weird stress dreams. I have discovered a few things about myself lately…
- I do not like booking my own travel arrangements for vacations. There are SO many options, prices, experiences, adventures… man oh man. I’d much rather go on a structured/planned trip that someone else planned. I have spent more hours thinking about and pondering what to do on my birthday trip to Napa, than I will actually spend in Napa!! How crazy is that?? Lesson learned – just find a travel agent or friend that really digs that shit and just give them money or wine to do it for me.
- I am on a constant journey to better myself. I am always open to ways to change, evolve, reflect, grow, enhance both myself and my life. I hope this never changes, I enjoy flexing the muscles of my life to see where I can go and what I can do.
- I have a gum problem. I chew like 8,371 pieces in a day when I’m stressed. Is there support groups for this?
- I am so much more accepting of my body than I was even 6 months ago. Focusing on eating clean and working out has given me such a different perspective and appreciation for my body and the things that it can do. I take time every day to love all the bits!
Life has its ups and downs, and lately for me life has had many more ups than downs. I’ve been really trying to find ways to fully appreciate and acknowledge this phenomenon since I know that might not always be the case :) Appreciating the small things and each other.
Also – trying to be the biggest, best, badassiest version of myself that this universe will allow! Which, is a pretty damn cool thing to think about every day.
