Hello there! I hope all of y’alls Tuesdays are ROCKIN’! Honestly, mine has been not-so-happy, but that’s a matter for another paragraph…
First up: FUN WITH ORANGES!!!
I just love the color orange…it’s a shame UT has to have the best shade of orange for my skin tone as the primary school color! 🙂 Either way, stacking oranges was a fun little experiment this morning, and the bright cheery orange mimicked the sunny day outside!
Lunch was a black bean burger on a sanwich thin with about 2 cups of fresh spinach that I wilted down and a Laughing Cow cheese:
This was a great lunch…I really love the creaminess the Laughing Cow gives and the spinach (after I wrung it out) was a great addition to the burger! I feel like I’ve gone vegetarian for the next couple of weeks, and I am hardly eating any veggies! I think I need to pick up the pace on doing that, eh? Today’s workout was a little different than expected because I (once again) didn’t account for that whole after-the-snow-melts-mud thing again! So basically I did a ton of lunges and squats, jumping jacks and running up and down a hill, and then ran back to the office. Overall it was a good workout, but since it wasn’t according to plan I had some internal freaking out. Dinner tonight is going to be a surprise because we’re going to be on the go all evening!
So yes, today was not a great day for absolutely no reason other than me wallowing in my own self-doubt. Why? Who knows. It felt like today was a good day for everyone in the blogging community, and for some silly reason I just felt stuck in a rut. I would LOVE for this blog to take me places I’ve never dreamed of and more than anything I want to touch people’s lives, teach them to love themselves and to love others. And for some reason today I just doubted that would ever happen. I watched excitedly as other amazing women talked excitedly about their futures, prepared for races, did interviews, and started their own businesses, ALL as a result of the places their blogs have taken them. And me? I’m just plugging away at my job and not really knowing what’s next. I’ve said it a million times, but I’m 26 and I think it’s about time I decide what’s going to happen, what I’m going to do, and who I’m going to be. Not that I’m ancient, but 26 isn’t as young as I used to be. I want to be able to look back at my 20’s and know that I made a difference and be able to live the rest of my life with some direction!
Have you ever felt this way? Not even specifically about blogging, but knowing that there’s something HUGE out there for you and not having a clue how to get there? If you’ve been there already do you have any advice to share? What’s your biggest defining accomplishment to date? I know this was a slightly depressing post, but I know it’s something I’ve got to share. Anything you guys could say would really make my day!
