What have I been up to during my absence? I wish I could say something really exciting and fantastic. However, I’d have to write some fiction to include all of those elements. Instead, I was busy living life:
- I had rejoined an online dating site. Ugh.
- Met a really super nice guy but didn’t quite click.
- Shopping for and learning about essential oils.
- Spending time with family and friends.
- Walking the pups.
- Spent a couple of days home sick
- Becoming obsessed with “The Mindy Project.”
- Enjoying the warm weather that is set to disappear again.
I think that is all that I have been up to, all good things. During this time though, I have been slacking off at living a life of gratitude. I am not acknowledging my blessings as often as I should. I’m not embracing my life and living joyfully. I am not unhappy, simply unfocused. I am somewhat “meh” lately.
To counteract my recent apathy I have made a vision board, talked to some of my friends about how I’ve slid a little bit. Trying to make myself more aware of the things that make me happy. Also working to cut out anything that makes me unhappy. I am cutting back my drinking a bit too. I’m not a huge drinker but I recently learned that alcohol can increase one’s risk factor for a ton of different cancers.
This will sound cheesy, but thanks to “The Mindy Project,” I am embracing my chubby self and realizing that I am attractive despite a few extra pounds. I think I needed that reminder in my life. It is funny where inspiration can come from. So that is what I am up to. Working on channeling my energies into my dreams and living life, full speed ahead.
