Excess baggage

Saturday, January 25, 2014

I'm feeling a little discouraged. I'm trying to work through some personal issues, and the process has been overwhelming at times. I don't usually get too into my personal life on SP, but basically I feel like I'm starting back from square one with my career, dating, fitness, and everything. I've had some serious health problems for the first time in my life and that has been scary too.

I keep telling myself I have a clean slate and a baby-fresh spanking-new year, which is helpful. I know it takes time for things to come together and that I'm on the right track at least. I'm blessed to be starting a new career path in a great, growing field after graduating last year, free as a bird relationship-wise and more aware of what I'm looking for, living back in my home city again, and that unemployment at least gives me time to rest, get organized, and re-commit myself to exercise and healthy habits.

The future just feels really unknown right now, and I keep swinging back and forth between hope on the good days and fear on the bad ones. Hopefully 2014 will be a year of growth, new opportunities, and re-prioritizing. I really appreciate the support people here have given me! Please keep it coming - I need all the help I can get.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. :)

    That's tough and health issues suck! But, spinning all these events positively will make your daily existence joyful. It has taken me a while to recover from health issue including skin cancer (which isn't painful or anything, but the excisions are) and an ankle injury. Just keep at it! I mean, look at the blessings in you life. You can run! That is so awesome. I wish I could run (again). :)
