So it's September 30, 2015 and it's almost exactly a year until I turn 40. This blog was always about Fixing mahself before I turn 40 because truly, I was a hot mess in my 20s and 30s.
Unfortunately, life got in the way and I faced some pretty serious (for ME) issues that needed to be dealt with before I could spend time writing on this blog.
I hope I'm back to writing. I like to write, I like to put my thoughts on "paper." But I've tried a paper journal many times to no avail - I end up applying my own crazy brand of perfectionism and it goes nowhere.
A couple of notes. I have turned off auto-posting of comments because the internet is always that lovely anonymous means of communication where some people think it's completely OK to post whatever they want without having any idea what the impact of their words might be. To that I will refer you to the meme at the left. Copied from the internet, where it was posted a gazillion times and I cannot find any reference to it's creator.
It's perfectly OK to not read this blog if you don't like what I have to say or think I'm boring :) I'm OK with never having a lot of followers.
Today is Day 1 of meeting my new fitness trainer. I have one last thing to "fix" before I turn 40 and that's my physical fitness. I have fixed my career (more on that later), I have fixed my personal life (way more on that later), I've learned to live with my current state of work/life balance, and I feel good 99 % of the time. So Imma get strong and more muscular. This has taken months of trying to find the motivation. I don't really need another thing that is a time commitment. But I've managed to make myself a priority in other ways, so why not work on this too. At some point I got to that all familiar stage of PUT UP OR SHUT UP. Here's another meme that sums the issue up (right).
I will let you know how Day 1 goes! Here's to becoming strong!
