I’ve been unsettled the last few months. I’ve started a new job, moved into a new house, got married and had a few other major challenges. None of those are bad; they just have me feeling quite out of a routine lately. Do you ever have that?
I can’t seem to get a new rhythm into my life. I keep trying to make sure I get all of my tasks or to-dos done each week but I seem to still remain unbalanced.
A new job is always an adjustment but especially in a new industry. I have switched from healthcare technology to energy and although the work and tasks are largely the same I am learning new terminology, new methods and techniques as well as new people. Add that to the fact that I’m back in an office environment after having worked at home for the last 7 years and its easy to see why the transition has left me in a fog.
Denali (our boy dog) had TPLO surgery on his rear left knee to correct a torn ACL. This has been a challenge of it’s own. He has had several complications and only recently did we learn that it’s all stemming from a staph. infection that has carried over from his surgery.
Married life to the man of my dreams and my absolute best friend is more amazing that I could have ever dreamed. With any new phase to a relationship there are changes and discussions to help us get on the same page. In addition to the relationship growing pains there are also adjustments at home. Chris moved in very shortly before we were married to help with Denali’s surgery recovery. I don’t care if it’s the best person in the entire world, a friend or a random roommate…learning someone else’s living style and meshing yours with theirs always takes some work and time.
I’ve been wondering why I haven’t blogged or put up a YouTube video in a while. A lot of it has to do with the demands on my time but it also has to do with not feeling completely settled with all of my new recent changes. Although most of them are so spectacularly wonderful, I am still foggy. As I slowly get into my new routine I am excited to navigate through all the nuances in my days.
My pastor said a few weeks ago that “Perseverance is not passive waiting but an active endurance.” I took that very much to heart. Things take time. There is constant growth. There is always something to learn. And with that I will continue to navigate the place I have in all of the new magical and wonderful chaos.
- Our town has a wonderful music festival every summer. I was out there most of the day yesterday enjoying friends, family, sun and music .
- I’m addicted to “London Fog” tea lattes. If you like chai tea you should check them out.
- I’m on a fashion and lifestyle refresh cycle. I’m looking at clothes, make-up and home decor in a more refined way. Maybe there will be some of that coming soon to the blog and to Youtube. 😉
