I have talked many times about how life happens. How kids get sick, work gets busy, or relationships fall apart. Recently, I wrote about how my current relationship had ended, another one had begun and ended just as fast as it had begun. In the whole mess of things, I seem to have lost the interest to blog. I had become super busy with a new job, a new lifestyle, a new way of living. Blogging had just taken a back seat to everything else that was going on.
Did I miss it? Absolutely! Blogging is something that I am proud of. I love telling people that I am a writer. Although not published (in a paper format), I am still a writer. Blogging is a way that I get to express my family, my passions, and other things that cross my path that interest me.
Am I sorry? No. Not really. As I’ve said before, life happens. I had some major life changes that were going on. I regained parts of myself that I felt I had lost. And I’ve gotten the chance to re-evaluate what and where I want to be in my life. I can’t be sorry about a time in my life that has allowed me to grow as a person.
C’mon. You’re not sorry a little?? Ok, Yes I am. I’m pretty sure that I have lost a bit of my following and will have to start over again, at least for a few months.
So what happened to you surgery? Ah yes. The cherry on my hot fudge sundae. Well, I never got it. Why, you ask? My primary care physician did not feel that the testing I underwent (and we all know the testing I underwent was far from minor), was not good enough. She wanted me to get additional confirmation that my test results were normal and even wanted me to get some of the tests over again. Uh?! Yea! OK! In the interim of everything, I had found out that I’ve lost nearly 30 pounds since July. At that point I simply thought that “If I’ve gone this far in losing weight without the surgery, then why even bother”. In the past, I have been unable to lose weight, but somehow I had lost weight. So I am putting the pedal to the metal and pushing fast forward to trying to lose weight on my own.
I am also a firm believer in the quote Everything Happens For A Reason.
So with that being said, I can tell you that everything that I have gone through has happened for a reason. There is a piece of me that is grateful for the change, and then some more change.
And Since Life Happens…
The Get Fit Dad and I are on a road to recovery in our relationship. It might be a long, bumpy, winding road, but it is one that we are going to navigate together and attempt at smoothly pave over. I’ve learned that we don’t get to chose who we fall in love with, is a true statement.
Getting a new job can be more exciting than being a SAHM! I love being home with The Get Fit Baby and The Get Fit Big Guy, but going to work everyday is very gratifying. I enjoy meeting new people and encountering new situations and challenges each day. I love having goals set for me that I need to meet.
I’ve realized that I can be just as in charge of my life as I was 7, 8, 9 years ago. It might be a little different, but I think that I can handle it.
And now one of my favorite Billy Joel songs. Because I haven’t blogged in the longest time.
