Wow. How quickly this year has flown by. So much has changed, mostly as a result of my high-flying new job (which I am still in a lots of love and a small (normal) amount of hate relationship with). I don’t normally write about personal things, but I hope you take a moment to read this post.
These last few months I’ve been dealing with an internal roller coaster. Beautiful, sparkling moments have been scattered and bookended by grey, unexciting weeks. I’ve had a lot of changes in my routine, in my health – not all good, not all explainable – and lots of frustration along the way. It’s all gotten in the way of my goals for this year and in particular my motivation to do anything. It seems like this whole year has passed by and I was a zombie through just about all of it.
Mostly I just feel like I’m rolling my eyes, frustrated at the universe trying to smile through gritted teeth screaming this:
I’m determined for 2015 to go a bit better. I want to let go of my stress, take control of my anxiety and start getting shit done. I’m the only thing standing in my way.
One of the big things I’ll be doing is staying off the dreaded Facebook. So if you think of me, drop me a text or an email or a SomeECard so that I don’t feel like the crazy housewife laying around in my Alpha Chi gear and extra-long yoga pants snuggling with Sherlock and Daphne all day. Too often Facebook takes the place of real friendships, and frankly it’s giving me depression. I’d rather be friends in real life instead of only on the Internet anyway!
So here’s to the zombie year that was 2014 – I certainly won’t be missing you. I have some very belated house projects to share in the new year and I may share a few more personal things as well because this is my website and I need to write, even if it’s not all related. It’ll all work out eventually and hopefully I can entertain you all a bit more along the way.
Here’s a bit of advice I hope to take, and I hope it inspires you too. Cheers to 2015!
