Before I get to my thinking out loud- here is a little update on how last week went down
Brice insists on taking is 4 ft tall teddy bear everywhere, Brice wearing sweat pants is my favorite thing ever, I’m slightly obsessed with Jamberry (more on that soon), cookouts at our neighbors who are deploying soon, we celebrated our 5 year engagement-anniversary, we rode on golf carts, we looked at Halloween decorations, we saw some deer, we ran a 15k (what I learned/recap tomorrow) we ate a pig, we got to do adult activities, we tried Jack and Coke slushies, we ate AMAZING sushi, had to do some sliding, I made some impromptu hot chocolate because I was lacking actual hot chocolate, and Brice keeps us laughing so hard every day!!
Now for my thinking out loud:
-Pretty much on a weekly basis I question my career path. I have a pretty sweet deal with my job and it’s not that I am unhappy, it’s just that I know it’s not what I want to do forever. I enjoy working. I tried the whole stay at home mom thing and I need to have some kind of job that challenges me mentally but I also need a good life/work balance because I want to spend as much time with Brice as I can. That’s why my current job is great but it’s not all that satisfying. I always think of getting into the health/fitness field because I love that stuff, but would I love it if it became my JOB? I found this an interesting read.
-There a lot of things I want to do in the next year, but they all take planning out and a few months of preparation. However, Colin and I also know that we want to have another kid at some point in the not so distant future and unfortunately you can’t say ‘I’d like to get pregnant this month’ and it happen. This makes planning these events rather difficult.
-I’m really bad at doing multiple things simultaneously. As you may, or may not, be able to tell this little ole blog has been rather neglected. I’ve taken a bit of a step back from the blogosphere (posting and reading/commenting) and have taken on a new endeavor with Jamberry. I’m going to do a whole post on it soon, but you can check out the Jamberry tab on the main menu in the meantime.
-Another reason I haven’t posting much lately is that I get those ‘what’s the point’ thoughts. I don’t want to write just so I put something out there, I want it to have some sort of significance. Maybe I’m too practical. Just this week though I have gotten messages from two old friends. One is training for her first half marathon and wants some tips, the other is trying to switch up her diet and wants to advice/recipes. It’s times like these that make me think that maybe someone out there is benefiting from what I say.
-And that leads me into my next random thought. There will probably be some changes around here. I will still be running and Colin will for sure still be tri-ing but I’ve had some recent health updates that I think are going to help me refocus and adjust what I use this blog for.
What motivates you to sit down and spend time blogging or reading blogs?
