Where will the road to
About this time every year I start getting the urge to be outdoors. Spring fever is quite common when you sit at a desk 50 hours per week. Though I love my job (except the sitting part), I love to be outdoors more. I love hard work more. I love accomplishment more. So, we buckle down on the day to day grind of the office all for the sake of funding the outdoor experience.
What I find most often, being in an office setting, is people longing to be out. Wishing that they had time to do things that are more exciting than just sitting around watching TV at night. I realize there are many that are TV fans, but I personally could live without one and survive just fine. I prefer to get my entertainment from nature.
Question is, how do you find time to get out and do those things? I make time. I force myself to take time whenever I can muster up the energy to get outdoors and do something.....ANYTHING! Sometimes it's 10 minutes, sometimes it's half a day. But it's doing what I want to do and not feeling guilty about it....OK, sometimes I still feel guilty when there is laundry waiting, but the great thing is, it waits for me and I have a better attitude about doing it after some me time. Just getting some good old fashioned fresh air can mean the difference in your day to day sanity. It can calm your nerves like no drug on the market. Taking even a 10 minute walk and focusing on just the beauty of nature around you can be extreme. For me, I have learned that it is a necessity to keep me from being ornery, irritable, and just plain grumpy. I have such a positive outlook on life now and feel so much better than I did 15 years ago when I felt like taking time for myself was selfish. It's NOT! It's better for everyone around me if I take my 'me time'.... trust me.
No matter what your life is packed with at the moment, find time to find yourself. You hold the pen that writes the rest of your life. Make time for making it better, because when you feel better about yourself, you are more likely to be better around those that look up to and rely on you.
Since having this new breakthrough about my brain therapy, I have taken up a few hobbies. Hobbies I'd like to share with others and teach. I am a professional at none of them, but I know enough to have fun, which is the exact reason I pursued them in the first place.
This blog is meant to inspire you, encourage you, support you and help educate you in things that can help find a part of you that you may not have known existed, or maybe have been holding at bay. Or, maybe, re-ignite the spark of the woman you used to be before life got in the way. Trust me, she's in there. Go find her...
