As you can tell, I haven’t written in a while. I had been consistently blogging for a year now, and I can’t seem to get my life back in order the past couple of months. Leading back to the cruise, I had full-on prepared for it: woke up early every morning to work out, meditated, prayed, meal-prepped, etc. The cruise happened and….six pounds later, I became an immobile creature, sleuthing away at Girls marathons for days at a time (that season five ending though…so good!), coming home from work and eating whatever anyone decided to make me (that’s right, I stopped helping!). It might have been due to slight, um, I don’t like to call it depression because that is a medically-overused word, but I was not happy. Sure, I knew I would gain a few pounds, but I had torn up my house because we needed to move out by the end of August.
You see, Jason and I were finally going to purchase our first home. Yay!!! I was stoked. We began saving this year and have thrown cash at whatever opportunity was right for us. In May, we found our first dream home (y’all know you have more than one). We kept imagining the possibilities of actually owning a house and what we can do with it. Pinterest boards went a-flyin’, Ikea trips began a-risin’. We are a young couple ready for excitement.
Alas, due to a series of unfortunate events, there we were, with 4 separate promised closing dates and no house. At first we weren’t worried. We had a whole two months to move out. Now, we have two weeks to move out, and we don’t have a closing date yet. Yikes! Repeat after me: It’s in God’s hands. You’ll be fine. Phew. I rely on that statement so much now-a-days.
I became unmotivated for the first time this year. My goals are not out the window, they are just much slower. And that’s okay. If none of us hit a wall at some point, we wouldn’t be human. You have to take the time to realize that you’ll be okay and that life will continue, so just choose to set yourself up in a happy place. I will be getting up early again soon.
I’ve been reading three books at the same time, one pictured above. I’m focusing on my next half-marathon, setting up a morning routine one again, going to start another bible study, and taking care of myself, inside and out, through whole foods as a diet and a new, organic and natural skincare routine (I’m so thankful for Juice Beauty, y’all! A post on that soon).
Well, this was just a rambling post to tell myself that I needed to blog again and to sure anyone who hits a wall that, you’re okay.
Have a fabulous week!
