So I got back yesterday after spending a wonderful and amazing week in Virgina with my sister and her family. And during that week, I started to realize a few things about myself and what I wanted. What I want for my future is a better job, completing my education, lose weight, live a healthier lifestyle and find love. I actually lost 5 pounds in a week because I was eating better and going for a walk at least once a day. There was always something to do and I was rarely bored. Though my energizer bunny nephews tired me out, it was a good tired. It felt like I actually accomplished something. :)
Being back home in California, I feel like I can make excuses as to why I can’t go for a walk or eat better. It’s living in a metropolitan society where everything we want is at our fingertips. Now there are a few things here in California that I love. I would name them, but the list is long. I also have the rest of my family and my amazing friends, who I love dearly. So after a few days of serious thinking, I’ve come to a conclusion.
I’m giving myself 1 year to change my life around. That means going back to school, change my eating habits, find a job that pays well, and just enjoy life instead of stressing about it. If I haven’t accomplished any of those things in a year, then I’ll be moving to Virgina where I know I’ll have a better shot at achieving my dreams. I know I can achieve them here in California. I just need to stop making excuses and start de-cluttering my life. I still have about 6 boxes of stuff in my room that I know I need to get rid of. So any time I have off will be spent on getting rid of stuff that I don’t use or don’t need. And I will be sprucing up my resume to find a job where I can actually make a life for myself and not rely on my parents.
This was a really tough decision. But after a lot of soul searching, I know in my heart that this is the right decision. So good luck to me and I’ll keep you all updated.
I’m using baby Groot as an example that anyone can start fresh. :)
