Friday Feels

What can I say? It's Friday. I'm working from home. And I'm having all the feels today. Do you ever have one of those days where all the emotions just hit you in the face hard? Well that's pretty much how my day is going.

I've learned in just 2 short months of 2017 that SO much can change in just a day. A week. A month. I have changed jobs, started training for yoga teacher certification, and have watched a bunch of my friends start new adventures as well. We all had very quick and sudden changes that leave us happy with our new adventures, but sad with change.

I saw a friend take a new job that will take her to another state 6 hours away. I saw a friend elope and will be moving across the country to be with her new husband. I saw another friend decide to make the leap and work from home with her own business. Another friend is starting her own business. So much potential. So much growth.

But when we stop to think about it, growth means change. Sometimes our growth takes us to new places. Sometimes we leave our communities and along with that comes leaving our comfort zone. I may not be leaving my community yet, but I am definitely feeling like a fish out of water lately. I am losing some of my closest friends in my community and that is breaking my heart today. I am so proud, but also feeling sad.

I can't wait to see where all of these new adventures take us. It's an exciting time.

How's your Friday going?

Currently - An update

Oh my word people, how did January sneak by as well as half of February?!

This year is already turning out to be crazy busy and it's making me sad that this blog has suffered a little after I had made plans to revive the blog this year. What can I say? Life happens? So here is another little update and a brief thought on what I am planning on writing about in the near future.

First and foremost I told you all about starting yoga teacher training (YTT) and that officially started on January 14th. I immersed myself into a full weekend of yoga practice and training. I really, really enjoy my classmates and all of the stuff we are learning. I only have 1 classroom weekend a month, so I am gearing up for my 2nd one this weekend.

In between our month classes we are responsible for attending a minimum of 2 yoga classes a week of our choice as well as some homework related to our teachings. Everything was going great until I decided to take a new job.

Back in December I was offered a position to get back into optical, which is something I have missed over the past 5 years. It also came along with the convenience of working from home. I couldn't pass it up. I spent most of January preparing to leave my job and readying myself to travel to train for my new job.

I went out of town for a week at the beginning of February to train, and since then I caught a virus that has kept me pretty tired and with no energy, along with learning my new job. Yoga has been hard to keep up with, through all of that, but things will hopefully slow down in the next few weeks and I should be able to get back on track.

I am planning to write more in depth about my yoga training. I have found some very interesting topics to discuss just within my own practice and readings. I am hoping to get those moving starting next week. I also want to focus on my new journey, working from home. It is an interesting process and deserves to be written about here.

So there you have it, my crazy busy life, all condensed into this short update. I hope you are all having a great start to your year, and I can't wait to get more going here on the blog!

Where have I been?

Hey strangers! I know I have kind of fallen off the face of the Earth over the past couple of weeks, but I wanted to just pop on and tell you all I am alive and will have an update this week!

January was a huge month of change and new stuff and I can't wait to share it with you all!

I hope the start of everyone's new year has been smooth and can't wait to re-connect soon!

Have a fabulous Monday!
