I Appear Missing

Hello, old friend.

It’s been awhile since we last had a conversation. Life lately has been an interesting one. It hasn’t been rainbows and sunshine. Even before Hurricane Harvey hit, I’ve been out of my element.

It’s been almost two months since I’ve communicated with you. I’m sorry about that.

I’ve had a serious case of being unmotivated. Life was seriously on autopilot. I’m sure you know the feeling. You wake up. Do the same usual routine from sunrise to sunset. Then you go to bed to do it all over again.

That was my life for awhile. But that’s not what I want out of life. I want to actually live my life.

That’s what I’ve been doing. Then Harvey made life a little different.

I’ve lived in Southeast Texas for almost a decade without going through a Hurricane event. August 2017 was my time.

And it wasn’t fun. I was scared. I was afraid.

But through all of it, I’m thankful.

We didn’t sustain damage to our house. We were displaced for a short while but that’s small compared to what others had to deal with.

Harvey made me see that I should be a little more grateful for this life I have. Be grateful for the things I own and the relationships that I continue to grow.

I have a new perspective on life. I’m not on autopilot anymore.

I’m trying to live life a little more fully. Being a little more present. Life is short. There’s no reason to waste it on things that don’t matter.

Harvey got me a little more motivated than I thought I would ever get. I’m really dialing into this weight loss journey. At this point in time, I thought I would be about 30 lbs lighter than I am now. That’s not the case.

I’ll get there but it’s going to take more time than so actually thought.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I’ve been sharing my adventures in learning to improve on the jump rope. It’s my 6-month project currently. I’ve progressed from only being able to do one jump to jumping 100 times consecutively.

Practice makes permanent.

I’m just wanting to live life more fully. I appeared missing from life and this blog for awhile but I’m in the driver’s seat again.

How is your weight loss journey going?
