My life is so random right now. I feel like nothing quite fits. I am a bit lost. Yet, for the first time in a long time, that feeling of being lost, is a good thing. I am anxious, but in a good way. It feels like butterflies in my tummy rather than…I don’t know…a bomb? It makes me believe that change is on the horizon. Good change.

So I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and hoping for a lot of goodness.

In addition to that short, vague announcement, I have a train of random thoughts flowing through my mind right now.

  • I have a lot of health-related posts in the making. I am working hard to change the state of my health and alleviate my anxiety naturally. More on that soon.
  • After an epic two week battle, I have resolved the situation with my forehead. Ignoring the fact that my face is now as dry as a desert tortoise’s ass (how dry is a desert tortoise’s ass? Hell if I know, but it sounds like it would be dry, no?) I will share my little adventure soon as it may be helpful to others. Also, thank you to everyone who commented on that post and for helping me in my time of need.
  • L and I went to Vegas for a family getaway. My brother brought his girlfriend – a first. All I really have to say about the situation is that we (the family) behaved ourselves (except when we went bowling, and I got a tad competitive). I think his girlfriend enjoyed herself. The only bummer was that L got bronchitis. Poor guy was a hot mess. And for the record, the 89 year olds in wheelchairs sitting at slot machines chain smoking did not help my husband’s cough.
  • I have started a journey of meditation. Don’t laugh. I am actually attempting to meditate every day. So far I have failed miserably, but I have high hopes that I can find a way to make it work.
I think that’s it for now. Anyone else making some changes right now? How?

    Oof, I have a similar feeling but with the bomb. Hopefully it's a happy bomb, and when it explodes it'll release confetti and ticker tape and unicorns and a pleasant work environment and personal fulfillment. (My change is that I'm trying this positive thinking thing, see.)

    I totally hear you on the "I feel lost but in a good way" feeling. While I know what I'm doing and the path I want to be on with my new business, never have I been so unsure of what each day will truly bring. Sometimes it's scary, but mostly it's exhilarating. I know where I'm headed — I'm just taking some unknown, scary, risky roads to get there!

    Inspired by "The Bobby Pin" I have decided to start making my dreams happen, and to stop saying "one day." We decided (like Ms Bobby Pin) to go to Paris next year. I've always dreamed of going, and after seething with jealousy reading her posts I realized that I could just go, I don't have to just dream about it! So, we're planning our first trip abroad for next year (maybe March), brushing up on my French, and getting really excited not only about the trip, but feeling motivated, rejuvenated, and excited for the first time in a long time!

    Hope the health issues are at least manageable. The meditation thing is awesome. I'm actually getting a certification in personal and organizational coaching while looking for a new job. I thought friends would laugh but one really wanted me to coach him! So go for the unknown, be happy, and come out with great things on the other end!
