Change: When Life Happens
Change is good. Change causes us to grow. What no one tells you is that change is hard, especially if it’s not a change that you initially wanted. However, as that old saying goes, “When a door closes, a window opens,” (or something like that)…. Roughly 3 months ago this desk jockey was let go from her desk. Without going into specifics I will say that it was shocking, unexpected and had nothing to do with me. This happens, apparently. The reason I tell you is because, I lost myself during this time. I didn’t feel like blogging. I didn’t want to share my usual random thoughts, because I was unhappy. I did continue to exercise, because while exercising I wasn’t thinking of applications, postings, or my mortgage. I was just focused on finishing my set or pushing through the workout. It was a welcome reprieve. However, I did feel massively guilty because I wasn’t tuning up my resume or networking; I was pounding the pavement.
Well in only 6 weeks I found a new (better) position, that I’m excited about. It took experiencing a dramatic low to see what was important to me in my life. It also took a shift in perspective to truly appreciate the wonderful friends and family that I have supporting me. This experience has changed me. I think it has changed me for the better though. I am stronger person than I was just a few weeks ago. I know now what is important to me. Enjoying time for myself, my family, my friends, and my fitness goals kept me sane throughout this experience. Life is about balance, and I think sometimes I can lose sight of that.
I do apologize for not blogging regularly but I intend to recommit to blogging. I enjoy sharing my fitness experiences with you and I look forward to many more adventures! The rest of 2015 is going to be exciting and I can’t wait to share it!
Today, I don’t ask any questions, but instead thank you! During my hiatus, I enjoyed reading other bloggers posts, training updates, twitter thoughts, and instagram pics. This is truly a great community and I’m happy to be a part of it.
So sorry you have been dealing with this, but it sound like you have a great perspective. Congrats on the new job!
Thanks! 🙂 I’m excited to move forward.
