Whoa, sorry about the unexpected hiatus. #mybad I will never claim my life to be busier than anyone else's. Just like this TED talk where Chimamanda Adichie talks about the danger of a single story, or the one where Ash Beckham talks about how hard is hard. Your busy and my busy are at the same level; what they contain is the only difference.
Regardless, life has just been busy. Nights have been filled with errands and training, and weekend have been filled with events here and there. And I love it. Being able to see people outside of my "normal" life and hang out with my gym family in a relaxed non-active environment is wonderful. Being able to be with my dad's family as my sweet cousin got married was one of the best weekends this month. As much as I claim to be a homebody and love spending my weekends at home, I'm trying to rid my mind of repeating that mantra - the one where I just want to stay at home. This life is for living, and I need to remember that. I need to remember how important the people in my life are.
It is about connecting at BBQ's, catching up at grad parties, and celebrating family through marriages. It is about taking an entire weekend off to go watch the Central Regionals in the Cities. It's about making dinner and breakfast dates to connect with the people who make the biggest difference in your life. How foolish it is to think being at home - alone - matters more then that. And as the end of June approaches, the busyness of life is certainly going to slow down, and I'll embrace what each day bring. In my eyes, it seems to be perfect timing; M started a new job at the hospital, which means more weekends off than ever before.
My heart is more content with this life than I have ever felt before. And as each day passes, I can't wait to see what my future holds. But in the mean time, I'll be living here in the now...knowing it will connect into my future in some way.
The only question on my mind - how have you been?
