I have and forever will love this color. It just gives me breath when I seem to have none.
Okay.. that was somewhat dramatic, but really though can we just agree it’s fantastic? It’s electrically charged, vibrant, and screams light-hearted pizazz!
This past week was rough for many reasons, most of which I won’t get into. I was incredibly sick, again. Yes, I have the worst immune system that seems to be against me with undoubted stubbornness. Why?! I missed nearly an entire week of work from being THAT ill because the last thing that needs to happen is giving any of my fun germs to my immunocompromised patients.. not a chance. I blame my recent travels, airplane germs and gym germs. We all know how much I talk about the icky grossness of airplane cooties and people’s insanely weird habits. I did just start ramping up my gym routine again, which includes lifting. (I know you guys appreciate my teeny little triceps). I’m more than positive my recent plague was exacerbated by some hairy bug someone kindly left when they sneezed or coughed and then didn’t wash their hands before touching the machinery/bar bells. thanks.
Life has been rather abrupt this past week. And when I say abrupt I mean like a cup of cold water thrown at you during a hot shower kind of experience. Ever had that happen? My gem of a husband has done that to me a time of two when he thinks he’s being funny. What’s really hilarious is when revenge strikes back in the form of rubber bands and kitchen sink sprayers. Did you just laugh? because I did, a lot. Ah.. fond memories. Anyway… A lot of things have happened landing me in a situation to really think about my immediate life situation and where I’d like to see my near future start to steer itself. I think it’s important, even in the darkest of circumstances, to try and examine the reasons behind why things happen, why people choose to behave the way they do or did. I read something last week while I was laying in bed in a mountain of tissues about our obsession with being busy and I have to say.. I can’t get it out of my head, because it’s so true. I have been so unbelievably obsessed with being and proving I can be EVERYTHING. Being the perfect image of the woman I had built up in my head I should be.. and it’s freaking exhausting, with my body crying out and breaking down in utter proof. It was such a revelation once I realized the changes I was capable of making, I couldn’t wait to get started! I’m still going to be pursuing my doctorate and continuing this blog on a full-time basis but I’m going to be easing back from my healthcare realm a bit for the time being.. at least until school is complete. I have to say.. I am super excited to have some me time and finally focus on my health! It’s not going to be easy letting loose on the the world I’m used to running with but I think it’s going to be a good thing and I’m thrilled to see the positive changes that are going to come with it. I’ll keep ya posted!
