Change – be open to it
Life is about evolving right? Because if we stay stagnant too long are we really living?
I have had quite a crazy, lovely week. I wasn’t expecting any of it, but I think that’s what makes life so wonderful. I hadn’t been looking for changes in my life. Actually, quite the opposite. I was content with the way things were. I wasn’t searching to ‘rock the boat’.
Tuesday I met my first blogger Ashley. It was really awesome. I know a lot of you have already met great people you’ve connected with through your blog and you know what I’m talking about. It’s a strange feeling to sit with someone you’ve never met in person but you have multiple things to talk about because you do know each other from writing. I guess in the old days that’s what having a pen pal was like, if you got the chance to meet them.
Today because of Sarah, I submitted my application to volunteer at an animal shelter. I’ve been thinking about it since we moved into our new house because the shelter I used to volunteer at is too far for me to get to on a regular basis. It wasn’t until I read Sarah’s post last night about wanting to volunteer somewhere that made me realize that I need to give back. I have a lot to be thankful for and even if it was rough at times, volunteering at an animal shelter is rewarding.
And then the aerial yoga…thank you Mandy and Sarah for inviting me to do this with you. I’ve been looking for a yoga class for the past couple months but the motivation wasn’t stronger than the laziness, plus I didn’t want to go myself. I’m glad I waited, now the three of us can hang in the air and try not to break our faces. It should be highly entertaining since I’m not at all graceful and truth be told I might be a tad scared of heights.
Sometimes though, you have to conquer those fears!
But wait! There is more.
Sarah, Mandy and I are working on getting a Michigan Blogger Meetup arranged! Sarah created a thread on 20sb, so if you live in the mitten go over there and leave a comment about where we should go in January. If you don’t have a 20sb account, you can email/twitter/leave a comment with any of us and we’ll gather up all the information and let you know the details.
Lastly and very personally, I’ve decided to freelance. I’ve wanted to for awhile now and I’m finally building confidence getting my shit together. I miss writing. I have to tell you that it’s hard for me to put myself out there because when I get rejected I take it hard, no matter who it’s coming from. But I’m going to be an adult and suck up the negative and focus on the positive.
Yes, today was pretty awesome!
