Rereading My Own Blog

Posted on: July 10, 2013

I was just reading previous posts from when I went to Spain and Hawaii.  I am very grateful to have the experiences and memories. In one post, I got a postcard from Kiersten in Spain and I was so excited to put it in my heart shaped picture- turned postcard holder.  I also wrote about living with Victoria and working at Underthings. Victoria is getting married soon! Her bridal shower is this Sunday. Isn’t it absolutely crazy how fast time goes by? I wrote about studying for finals and going to class and writing papers and now I am seriously dating someone, buying a car and a new computer, and having a mid 20s crisis about what to do with the rest of my life. At the time, I couldn’t wait to get out of college and go and be something.  I didn’t know it would be this hard. I was reading another blog called Mind Body Green about meditating. I think I am going to give it a try. I find myself drawn to posts on that blog fairly often. It is nice to read the things I am feeling in someone else’s words. Back to my own previous posts, I reread the one about surfing on a paddle board at Wikiki Beach.  I need to get my butt out to California to do that again. I LOVED surfing. It was such a natural high. I need to do more things that make me happy. I think I get so worn out from getting up early, getting on the train, working a full day, going home that I forget what life is about. I want to be successful, yes, but I want to be happy and I need to see more of my friends and do things with them that I enjoy. Hiking at Starved Rock was fun. I just need to soak it up more and make time for things that are important to me. I’ve decided to make a schedule for my week. I want to start playing the piano and guitar again. There are so many things I’m not doing that I should be. There is still so much ahead of me and I need to quit feeling like this is it. It isn’t.  I also need to be more positive. I spilled coffee all over my hand on the walk to work this morning and I didn’t get mad. Small victory. Here are 3 of my favorite things from previous posts.
