Hello there! I’ve missed you!
I won’t lie – it feels a little weird to be writing here after a bit of a break. I have missed blogging immensely, but I’ve been either too busy and tired to write or when I do have time, I haven’t felt inspired or motivated to do so. I also just haven’t felt like sharing about my life lately because I haven’t felt like I have anything valuable to say.
I guess I’ve gotten into a bit of a slump!
Life has been busy – there’s no doubt about that – but I have forgotten to make time for myself lately and that’s something I need to get back to doing. That whole balance thing… Let’s just say I wasn’t/am not thriving according to this awesome chart:
Hopefully my blogging mojo will come back if I just start writing again. Ideas will flow. Right now — I’m just writing as I’m thinking and we’ll see how it goes.
So what’s new? Well, we bought a house. More on that later, but it’s been pretty awesome & stressful & exciting & scary, etc. Like – we’re homeowners!! What?! Yeah, it’s still hard for us to believe. I promise I’ll share more on that soon. Other than that, admittedly, not much is new. (Though I realize that’s a huge thing!) I haven’t completely forgotten about this blog, though – I have been slowly tweaking some things here and there & updating some things on the back-end as well. I’ve been learning a ton of marketing-related things at work and have lots of ideas for this ol’ blog – just gotta start spending time implementing them!
In addition to being in a blogging slump… you guessed it! I got into a bit of a fitness slump, too. Nothing drastic has changed for me weight-wise, but we all know health is so much more than a number on a scale. Luckily, my work provides a membership to the YMCA so I have been trying to make good use of that.
A lot of my struggles stem from my mindset, which is something I’m actively working on changing. I have been really into personal development for the past year or two, so lately I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts, etc. Let’s just say it’s a work in progress & I have good days and bad days (just like any other normal human). I need to remember why I started my journey and focus in on that – that’s much more motivating than the number on the scale. I’ve gotta walk the walk, stop making excuses and start taking action, show up for myself.
That’s all I have for you today, folks… just a lady rambling about her life full of ebbs and flows. I’ll be back again soon!
Until next time,
