I’ve been quite inconsistent this year with regularly posting. That, among other things, will most definitely be different after the new year. No, I am not making elaborate new year’s resolutions, but there’s been a number of changes over the past few months that have me moving in the right direction.
A large part of my lack of posting over the past couple of months was directly impacted by a lot of changes that were taking place and trying to be a little more present so I could make the best decisions for not only myself, but those closest to me.
I think most people would agree that 2016 was quite the whirlwind of a year. However, I think that’s often the case as most years come to an end. Every year, we all have individual accomplishments, failures, losses and gains. Each year, “we” also go through accomplishments, failures, losses and gains. Who is we? We can refer to a lot of different individuals depending on the context you are putting it. We – as you and your significant other. We – as you and your family. We – as you and your coworkers. We – as you and the entire nation.
Sometimes it seems impossible to balance out all of the “we’s” and focus on ourselves. Sometimes I have a hard time saying no and overcommitting myself to too many things. Sometimes I wish I cared a little less about certain things so I wouldn’t get caught up on things that are out.of.my.control.
I took a yoga class tonight with one of my best friends, Ashley, who I have been friends with for over sixteen years. Yes, that’s more than half of my life. I could write a whole post on how much she means to me, but that’s a post for another day. Back to the yoga class… Attending this class was like listening to a comedian, chatting with a therapist and working out all rolled into 50 minutes. I fell out of my pose multiple times from laughing so hard. Then, found myself moments later in deep thought based off a simple, yet profound, statement he had made. I literally left feeling *brand new*
Where am I going with all of this?
Like most things in life, a Michael Scott (or someone else from The Office) quote prove to be way too relevant.
I guess what I’m saying is… I AM BACK!
