I’m slowing finding my groove again. Such is life of an amateur blogger. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s catch up, shall we?
Marathon training officially started June 1. This is the easy part. These are the workouts that I already know and love. The hard part comes in July and August when the runs start getting to be actual long run and the temperatures plus the humidity (thanks a lot Kansas) start to increase. It’s not going to be a picnic, who said your first marathon ever was?
I transitioned into a new role at work. It’s terrifying. And exciting. But mostly terrifying. I started getting used to people not expecting anything out of me and now I’m in on important meetings and doing work that no one else in the office does and drafting proposals…it’s definitely been a struggle and one that has played out here on my blog of feeling confident enough to do this work.
Work has been a struggle for me. Beyond in the actual work. It starts to wear on you when you hear people talking about you “behind your back” and begins to get to you. As much as I tried not to let the negative words effect me, I am one the broods on the negativity and I was soon sucked into it. I let the words repeat over and over again in my head…as much as people outside would tell me not to worry about it and to forget about it, I had a difficult time forgetting.
I deactivated my Facebook. I needed the break from that specific form of social media that is constant highlight reel upon highlight reel. I’ll admit, I compare myself in almost every aspect of my life to almost every person in my life. I’m insanely competitive. The highlight reels plus the onslaught of baby pictures plus the slew of misinformation that people post thinking it to be honest and real…let’s just say, I don’t need any help in the being a cynical 26 year old department and Facebook was helping me a little too much. So instead of whining about it endlessly, I just deactivated it. This isn’t the first time that I have done this, but this is the longest I have gone without it and I don’t see myself returning anytime soon.
I’m starting to feel pressure to pursue a PhD. But at the same time, I don’t know why I would ever do that. But maybe…
There’s a comment section right below here…catch me up on what’s been happening in your life. And let’s see if we can’t get some structure and schedule back to the good ole blog, shall we?
Oh and one quick edit, after being on this blog for over a year, I finally decided to make the commitment and spend the $26 to purchase my domain. This is now wellnessblogging.com, feel free to update your bookmarks 🙂
