so i took a couple days off…and no it didn’t kill me.
i don’t know how people abandon their healthy lifestyles though. i went to the hotel gym both sat and sunday and did some sort of a work out…granted it was a lot less than my regular regimine, it was something! but after letting lose on my eating reigns for a couple days, holy hell, i’m so glad to have eaten tons of greens and chicken for lunch today! and wouldn’t mind not havving a drink for a while. (and i didn’t drink much!). Funny how that happens!
i had an interview yesterday, that i’m keeping underwraps for the most part, so shhh…don’t tell anyone. i’ve always had a conundrum of telling people about jobs i’m interviewing for. my college roommate my freshman year used to tell me that i needed to tell people my goals and share my dreams…where as i think that’s awesome, and she went on to lead a fairly successful career as professional golfer and lawyer (go girl!), i’ve often encountered naysayers and people genuinely not interested. so i tend to try and keep things quiet until they are a sure thing. so hopefully in a few days, or a week. or two…i’ll have some awesome news to share with you guys! until themn, it’s all about the power of positive thinking. it’s worked well in my life before, it’s time to really push this one into happening!!!
i know something is out there for me that is exactly where i belong. and i know it will come together when it is meant to. it’s been a really rough road for me. i’ve never not been successful. i’ve learned to disengage a bit. if you know anything about me, you know i’m passionate (or as my close family and friends would tell you, OBSESSIVE!). i get really excited about things i believe in and that’s what makes me successful. i eat, sleep, dream, about things i enjoy/want to accomplish/etc. (well…i guess that’s a bit obvious if you follow my blog or twitter feed). for the most part, it’s actually one of my favorite things about me. but lately, with certain things, it’s become a bit of my achilles heel. caring so much and putting so much of myself into something to be let down is pretty painful. it happened with my last job, and to this day it literally still haunts me (yes, weekly i have a nightmare of it all! no joke…i know, it’s pathetic, but true). it’s so draining to put all of yourself into something to not get it. so i’m learning to ease up a little…or just not allowing myself to get engaged with things AS MUCH as i used to. working on controlling the controllables and letting fate take care of what is meant to be. this is actually a huge part of my health and fitness too…trying not to obsess and beat myself up if i slip here and there. like i posted on twitter this morning, exercise is a reward, not a punishment because of what you ate!!!
i know i’m destined for something extraordinary. i know there is more to my life. and if i don’t find it, i’ll make it. i know i’m coming out of the tail end of this rough patch!
so enough of my ramblings for today.
go out there and do good!
