Life has been pretty one-note lately. No high-highs or low-lows of which to speak. A few weeks ago I took a good hard look at what I want out of this year (can you believe it’s May?) and realized the resounding themes had nothing to do with drankin’ on a Monday night. You know.
I’ve been running a lot lately (rejoice!) and this gives me ample time to overthink my life. I think nearing the midpoint of the year is always a good time to check in and reassess what you’re going for. For me the theme of this year is career and money and just securing my own foundation. I am, for the first time, super comfortable saying I want money and I want more of it and that doesn’t make me terrible. I don’t know why I always thought otherwise.
I also came to a jarring realization recently that this is the first time I’ve ever been comfortably, happily, securely on my own. I had the college boyfriend and in the midst of wallowing in that breakup came upon the post-college boyfriend and in the midst of wallowing in that breakup came upon the post-post-college boyfriend. I don’t know how I never saw that cycle or considered myself that girl, but I finally clearly declared that this is a good time to be just me and to focus on stuff like my friends and my family and my job. I kind of can’t believe this is the first time I’m in this space. I always thought those things were what I wanted and prioritized, but sometimes we say one thing and do another.
So anyway, end rambling diary entry. Everything is awesome and I love my life right now. Here are snapshots of what’s been up lately…
[I made some coconut whipped cream and ate it on everything all week. We’re moving into a new office and work and it is awesome. I got a Raspberry Pi and work and have grand plans to turn it into a motion sensor camera for monitoring the cats. 5Church turned two last night so I went to celebrate with my favorite people. And drank entirely too much champagne. I’ve been putting that $6 peplum top to work–the cost per wear is like pennies at this point. It’s Tilly’s birthday! I’ve had that little T-Rex for one year today.]
PS – Next year’s theme is travel. Already planning on it.
