Boy, have I been slacking. I'm usually a very upbeat person and when I blog I try to be as positive as possible. Well..... needless to say, I've been in a funk most of this month and have stayed hidden from the blogging world. I have found this is NOT a good thing. When I don't blog, I keep things to myself rather than putting them out there, seeing them for what they are and moving on with life. So, from here on out, good or bad, I have to blog at least 3 or 4 days each week.
So to address my downbeat reasons and what to do with them!
First, I was frustrated with myself because I lost less than 5 lbs during May. The reason, easy, I slacked up on my exercise. I'm getting back to the swing of things now, but I also realized, HEY I LOST weight in May. I didn't stand still and I didn't gain!!!!!
Second, I still am looking for employment. I'm good at what I do, enjoy doing it and will make some company a great employee. They just need to hire me. I guess my problem here is I've never been out of work since I turned eighteen. The only time off was during maternity leave. However, I've made this time off productive. I've worked on me, improving my health and lifestyle. Also, my husband and I have been able to share not only time but alot of our dreams, hopes, and fears with each other and that has strengthened our marriage.
And last but not least, I turn the big 5-0 next week. I have never before been bothered by a birthday number til now. I was one of those who usually laughed when someone said how much turning a certain age bothered them. I don't really now why it should bother me but it does. So, I've started thinking about all that I've accomplished so far and what all I CAN accomplish after 50. There's alot on both sides. One of the biggest for the 50+ is I'm the healthiest I've ever been and the happiest in my personal life I've experienced.
So, my glass is always half-full, I just think I get a little anxious when it takes longer than what I think it should to get full.
