I guess that I don't need that, though, now you're just somebody that I used to know
This last month has been a month of attempting to rediscover myself. I have met some new people, read some really fantastic books, and watched more movies than I had planned to. I have been able to spend more time at the gym than not, and my gym actually closed down for four days while they moved to a new location (which I am still getting used to.)
A close friend said something to me a few weeks ago that really hit home. She said, "Being angry with someone is like you drinking poison, and expecting him to die from it." Hello open eyeballs. I have been trying to incorporate this into more aspects of my life than my personal. Work especially. I don't necessarily walk around all day pissed off, but I know I do spend a good portion of it completely frustrated.
My mind has cleared in ways that are more evident in my home life. I've started cooking again. I've managed to keep my living spaces picked up and mostly clean for close to a month (and for those of you who know me in any capacity, you know this is a feat in and of itself.) I have folded the laundry within 24 hours of it being dry. I have done the dishes every night. My mind is cleared, therefore my life is a lot more put together.
I want to write about some of the personal changes I've gone through in the last two years since I started actively trying to lose weight, but I don't feel like I'm quite ready at this time.
I have been dealing with some health related issues, mostly hormone imbalances which I am starting to believe are linked to my birth control, but I'm starting to believe that the weight loss has played a part in this as well. I've started to seriously look into getting an IUD after the beginning of the year. I'm tired of irregular cycles and excruciatingly tender breasts, and mood swings. I know you might not want to hear about all of that, but you know what? It's my life, and this is something I'm dealing with right now.
I want to leave you with a song that was shared with me this last week. Very rarely do songs come along that will change you mind and soul. This is one of them. Another completely eye opening moment.
