30 days & counting

1st month into the new year and I’m killing it.

oh, 1st month into MY year…I base my years off my actual birthday because clearly someone forgot to tell 10 year old me that the world doesn’t revolve around her.

Year 24/2016 was rough for me. Just a few low lights, I constantly felt trapped throughout that year. I wasn’t a fan of my job or my lifestyle.  I made some lazy decisions and I didn’t listen to my body. I felt clouded and tried to escape by focusing only on other people. At the time the relationship I was in made me feel needed but to a draining degree. I felt like I any thoughts about myself were selfish when I had the opportunity to help my S.O but what I realized is 1. you should be in a relationship where you feel that your S.Os happiness is only stemmed from you and 2. that I needed to work on me much more than i thought before I could share myself with anyone else. In that year I also was immobile due to an accident for quite some time which launched me into a series of low points of the year.

So before in my end of the year reflections I decided to let go of everything in 24 that had been a burden. Job problems-resigned, Relationship issues-broke it off, Lifestyle/over healthy living- went back to working out & being more aware of my eating habits. And now a month later, I am feeling so light and free (and not just because I’ve lost a few pounds either) mentally I am more driven and focused.

I don’t think this is a temporary high either, I feel like I have really placed some great building blocks for a more improved version of myself.  30 days in and I’m very pleased with my progress!!

OMG my BFF Jill!

I heard a quote some where–okay who am I kidding I read this on pinterest and I liked it and then it was on Master Of None in season 2 ( netflix-watch it, its great) I did try to find the original author but there is none…..any way

Some people come into your life for a reason, some a season, and some a lifetime. However long it was be thankful for the gifts your received from them.

I am blessed with the personality characterized as extroverted (extreme extroverted in some cases). Simplified this means I recharge/energize better in the presence of others versus alone. . This trait has allowed me to get to know a various amounts of different people, I find it easy to talk to people and I absolutely love to connect with people from different backgrounds. I tremendously enjoy getting to know peoples life stories, where they are from, what has shaped them and who has shaped them. I also enjoy telling people about my story as well.

I have had people in my life for a reason, a season and some I hope a lifetime. I have connected on many levels with these people and it has been wonderful. I loved this quote because  it really help me focus on the close friends I had once upon a time and it helped me see that what we went through and growing apart is OK. It’s not a fault on anyone’s side its not something to be mad at if you grow apart, it’s just life and they were in my life for a time and it was good and it’s still good without…it’s good to see them on their own making their own accomplishments and I couldn’t be more proud!

It’s national best friends day today so cheers to all the friends and people in my life for whatever reason you were there, and whatever season you stopped by for and for the ones where you will never be able to get rid of me. Thank you for all you have done for me and I hope I was to impact you like you impacted me.
