Our youngest child has gone off to college. We are now in an "empty nest". I am so happy for my daughter...I have not shed a tear. I don't feel like this is an ending. I feel like this is a beginning. So why am I faltering on my goals? I now have all the time I need to do what I need to do but I haven't been doing it. I need to find that inner peace, set myself up for a win and move on. I think that what I am really doing is just taking a pause. Enjoying the moment, because truly I am not sad. I can make whatever I want to for supper (no complaints) set out for a early morning run (no one is looking for lunch money) go to an evening class. The possibilities are endless so I am doing nothing? I am writing this, as I know you all will hold me accountable and give me that kick in the pants I need.
I have a 10K coming up at the end of September...heat be damned. Best get my butt out there. I know what I need to do, and my pause is over...time to get back to living life.
