Life is Hard, But I'm Still Sailing


Life is complicated. Far more complicated than one blog post could ever explain, and I don't really want the responsibility of writing that post anyways. 

Life is a constant battle between the things you want to do, the things you need to do, and the things you have to do. Sometimes you find balance between all of them, and sometimes you have to let something slide to have any sort of success at life. I chose the latter--which became the blog.


I've taken on more work, in addition to my full time job and that's exactly what I want. I don't want to be stuck at retail job forever. As fun as selling lingerie is, there is a lot involved that isn't fun. It's retail, and people get naked in fitting rooms, so imagine the possibilities there, and it's probably worse than what you thought of. I hope to eventually retire from retail and work from home. Despite my end game, with this added work, I've been struggling.

I'm not struggling just for that balance I spoke of earlier, but I'm struggling to keep the things I have worked hard for in tact. I had gotten to such a good place of taking care of myself and making my needs a priority, and I've lost that. I can't let actual paying work slide, so my sleep, running, exercise, and healthy cooking is sliding. I am still committed to my weight loss goals, despite a couple pound set back and the lapse in Shedding My Pirate Booty updates. 

So, this is my attempt to get back to that, at least some of it. I can't promise the same commitment to the blog as I had before, but I will try. With the start of the #2WeekChallenge on Monday, I think it will be just the kick in the butt I need. If I don't make it to the blog much here, you can read my articles on Mamavation.com and see me weekly on Mamavation TV

You can always hunt me down on social media and make sure I'm still alive too. Thanks for sticking around.
