After a month and a half of silence, I'm back! And I have a lot to say.
The cool thing about this "hiatus" of mine from the blogosphere is that I actually missed it. I found myself thinking, "Ah, I wish I could blog about that!" more times than I expected, forcing me to constantly think about what I was trying to accomplish while away from my beloved aspiring in the real world.
I touched on this in my last post, but truthfully - I realized I had been doing a lot of talking and not enough doing. To me, my identity consisted of a driven, yoga-loving, Christian, health-conscious, kind-spirited twenty-something. But how can that be my identity if I don't put those things into action? I worked out once per week and called myself fit; I hadn't been to yoga in months and called myself a yogi; and I didn't watch what I ate more often than I did and called myself health-conscious, etc.
So that's why I'm now here. Because for the first time in awhile, I feel like I'm actually on a path of change. (Not just staring at it and saying, "I'm going to do that!") Not to say all the above things I've mentioned have come to life in the last month and a half, but I'm getting there.
Things that have changed in the last 45 days:
1. I got a promotion!
2. I'm officially a simply carbohydrate woman
3. The gym and I are friends again
4. My savings account is growing
5. My bucket list is coming to life
Things that will continue to change and grow:
1. My spirituality and dedication to my faith
2. My love for yoga
3. My relationships and what I put into them
Stay tuned for a post on each of these topics in the coming weeks - it has been (and will be) and awesome and brutally honest journey that has really given me a wakeup call, and I can't wait to share it.
What things do you consider part of your identity that you haven't put to action in awhile? What ways could you change to become more of who you want to be?
