Oh.. hello there. Remember me? I used to blog here.
I promise I have a good (and rather lengthy) explanation about why I disappeared from blogging over the past month. I won’t pretend it’s a very glamorous story, because it isn’t. But regardless, that story is on it’s way in an upcoming post.
Today, I just want to check in, see what’s up with all of you and share a bit about how the past month has worked out for me. Oh, and to say thank you. For sticking around, tweeting, commenting and connecting with me on Instagram. I’ve read every comment, tweet and email and even if I haven’t gotten the chance to reply, please know that I’m grateful for it all. I know my fade away was a bit unexpected (to me, too), and it means a lot to know I’m not back here writing to an empty crowd.
Perhaps because it’s the shortest month, or because it was unbearably the coldest on the East Coast, I spent most of the past 28 days thinking, studying, dreaming a plotting. Evaluating where I am, owning up to fears and envisioning fantastically where I hope to be within the next year or so. But like I said, there will be more on all of that, soon.
But the basics…
DRINKING / Coffee (are we shocked). My first cup in the mornings has been one of the most welcomed moments in my morning routine. It helps prep my mind and body for the busy day (and artic chill) ahead. To balance my caffeine intake, I’ve been pushing myself to drink at least 50-60 oz of water, per day. And honestly? I’ve been feeling amazing because of it!
EATING / These Snap Pea Crips, whenever I can (mainly while watching Netflix). I was introduced to them last semester and I’ve been hooked ever since.
READING / Maximize Your Potential. It’s the second book in the series I mentioned before. My ‘to-read’ pile is getting increasing larger, and I’m hoping to take this week to get reading.
BREAKING / Out of my comfort zone. I have a post planned all about the fears I’ve admitted to myself that I have and how I plan to face (and conquer) them. What would you do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
WANTING / Spring weather, already! It’s been nothing but freezing winds, snow days and ice-covered sidewalks on the East Coast. I’m ready for sunshine, shoes that don’t require socks and the ability to walk outside without tear-inducing temperatures.
WORKING / On some really exciting things for the blog. During my off time, I finally had the time to recharge, take stock and consider what it really is that I want (from this space and beyond). Now, I’m ready to make time and do the work.
What have you all been up to lately? How have you been beating the winter blues?
