Today I was really feeling like I was missing my blog. It hit me. So here I am, posting and checking in and, by the way, how are you all? I admit it’s been hard managing all of my balls in the air these days with my new life and blogging, but I can assure you, this is still a passion of mine and I’m not letting it go.
I think it hit me today because today was a sort of interesting day, a sea change, if you will, in my life as of late. As I write this, it is occurring to me that really, every day seems to take me on some sort of adventure, and things seem to change course frequently, whether that be physically, metaphorically, or even emotionally. Sometimes (a lot of times) that’s totally exhausting, but then, isn’t that the total point of changing up everything in your life? To go on a big adventure, knowing every day for a while is going to feel at times new and uncomfortable, but also exciting, and full of interesting things? It’s the perspective I need to keep up when I ask myself, what did I get myself into? I’m not going to lie, I’ve had that thought- a few times. But I think that’s normal, and I have yet to regret this. In fact, at this point, I don’t think I ever will. And that is despite a few hefty roadblocks: my dream job being much more challenging than I ever could have imagined, and an apartment situation that kind of went to hell (I’m really surprised I haven’t ended up on the street yet, something temporary seems to keep coming up, miraculously, although I was forced to shower at the gym in my office recently. Again, it worked) and on top of it all, sub-freezing weather that I am just not used to. I totally just Zapppos.com’d myself an overnight-shipped down parka because it was time. Thank God for the little things that save us right?
this quote by H.K. really does say it all to me, and thus, I have this print (by Leah Flores - she has a lot of good ones) as my cell phone backdrop as a reminder. A good reminder for us all, right? Life is a great adventure, or nothing at all. More soon… xx
p.s. i’m obsessed with this song/this chick. get on it.
