Sun, Mar 20
I’m on a flight right now heading to Phoenix for work. I’m sitting in a middle seat (ugh) which happens when you don’t check in when you’re supposed to and every now and again I get a whiff of bad breath/odor which I’m pretty sure is coming from my neighbor on the left (help me). Honestly the only thing I’m really looking forward to is the fact that it’s like 90 deg in AZ and I’m in serious need of some vitamin D. Not to mention it’s supposed to rain all week at home (score). Well that is when I’m not sitting in a freezing conf room in mtgs (wishful thinking). I’m not a huge fan of traveling for work post kids because 1. I don’t like being away from the fam 2. Too much prep/coordination beforehand 3. Not used to having that much time to myself anymore and 4. the dreaded awkward work dinners.
“What may seem like a crappy situation at the time is sometimes actually a blessing in disguise.”
Life works in mysterious ways though because this trip might be exactly what I needed as much as I was sorta dreading it. Meaning….every now and again life throws you some curve balls and with the daily craziness and being pulled in a million different ways it’s hard to always think things through clearly. This “down time” has given me that time. What may seem like a crappy situation at the time is sometimes actually a blessing in disguise. I strongly believe in that. This is my time to be forced to think clearly.
I’m about to be 41…which I feel mostly fine about. It definitely hurt more turning the big 4-0 but since I’ve now had nearly a year of this 40 business it’s no big deal (ha right!). I guess what I didn’t realize or really believe about getting older is that you really do look at life a whole lot differently. You start not to care so much what people think and what’s really important to you becomes that much more clear. It’s also probably because you just don’t have the time or energy anymore. At the end of the day we’re all just trying to live life the best we can and when (not if) we hit a bump in the road hopefully we learn from that experience and try to do it better the next time. #liveandlearn
This is from the day before I left to Phoenix. It warms my heart to see the relationship they’re building. #sistercousins
It’s now Tues evening and I’m heading home tom night. As much as I was anxious about these mtgs they turned out well and it was great to spend time with my team. Going outside my comfort zone wins again (every time)!
I’ve always said that when you go on a trip solo….either absence makes the heart grow fonder or out of sight out of mind and I feel lucky that for me it’s the latter and as soon as I leave I miss my family dearly. Although not gonna lie….it’s been kinda nice getting up in the morning and my only job is getting myself ready and getting sleep isn’t so bad either. Kidding aside…my little fam is the only thing that matters to me. End.of.Story.
