Well today I officially closed out my first school year at my new job. Must say I'm very proud of myself but that is not all I have to be thankful for. This year has been a serious eye opener. I was able to rekindle a friendship with a best friend I hadn't spoken with over a year and half. Furthermore I had to REALLY re-evaluate a (questionable friendship/on/off relationship/somewhat acquaintance) with someone else earlier this week. (The part at 3:55 of the video link is a personal fav.) Yet I realized love is a strong emotion, but self respect is so much stronger.
I've gone back to the gym working out, trying to get back on my healthy lifestyle and really sticking with it. I still have my Zumba on Monday and Wednesday. PiYo on Wednesday. I highly recommend people if you have not taken a "peaceful" class which is what I consider Pilates, Yoga, and PiYo to be, then look into them. It not only helps your body but it helps you to relax your mind as well. I'm also working weights throughout the week as well. Yet what I really miss is my boxing, hoping to get back into that this summer;)
I've had a lot on my mind this year and even sought the assistance of a specialist to help me deal with issues. You know what? I'm not ashamed to say that either. No one is perfect and sometimes you need an opinion of someone else that really doesn't know you. I can say its helped big time and help me with dealing with issues that I've had on the back burner for quite some time. Yet I still think I'm a work in progress;)
Looking forward to this year, with one of my best friends due to come into town this July, have another best friend who will be a first-time mom this fall, overall just looking forward to kicking with my friends and just having fun;) I've kept myself busy with activities from work as well as personal commitments. I volunteered this June for the Susan Komen Walk for the Cure and this year marked my 5th with being involved. I plan on signing up for the Sista Strut this October.
I'm looking into other possibilities as well for this year. I've been thinking about getting back into college this year(MAYBE) or wait until January. STILL can't decide on a major, big issue. Jack of so many trades yet a master of none strongly applies to me. Yet I learned what I decide to do it is MY decision, I don't need approval from anyone else. I've learned a lot about myself and finally realized the only person's opinion that should matter to me is my own. I can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. I'm at a point that I'm sick and tired of people talking at me instead of to me. I'm ready to change my life. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and change things but overall when I think about it, I'm glad for a few reasons that I can't.
Another change I want to make is getting back into my blogging on a regular basis. I've had this blog for quite some time, since August 2005. Its been therapeutic when I've needed it and I realized for me it's helped me get out my thoughts when they are "jumbled" in my head. So it needs to be revamped ASAP. lol
Well, anyway just wanted to give a quick update to myself and all I can say is:
