It is still raining today. I guess we have some crazy storm system that extends all the way from Hawaii and it’s going to rain through Thursday. Boo.b
But, the clouds parted for an hour this morning and I quickly ran out the door to get 6 miles in before it started again. Right as I was about .50 mile away it started to sprinkle. Perfect timing
But, when I got home I discovered half a worm stuck to my leg. GROSS! I have no idea how that happened since I didn’t stop to stretch or anything. I must have kicked it up somehow and it stuck to me? Gross.
On the way home from my mom’s last night Ben and I talked about our goals for next year, life, finances and fun. We had a major set back in money and my career when we moved to Maryland. It was a hard hit and I still feel bad about it.
I learned a lot from the experience, it brought Ben and I a lot closer together (which is important since we were just married) and I made some great friends. But, I feel like there were a lot of things I should have done differently to bounce back from being let go from a job I moved 3,000 miles for.
As we were talking I realized that what’s done is done and I need to leave it in 2010. I have some regrets, but it’s over now. I’m packing up the lessons I learned to take with me into 2011. But the guilt, feelings of failure and regrets stay here. They don’t get to come along for the ride that will be the rest of my life.
While we’re at it – I’m sorry I’ve said dumb or mean things, reacted to situations in ways I’m not proud of and made mistakes in general. I guess I’m writing this as an apology to people I’ve hurt so it’s not as if I’m just trying to shirk the responsibility for my short comings.
I have a bunch of new goals and dreams that I am aiming for in 2011. I am motivated and excited and don’t want to be weighed down by my own self inflicted guilt.
On to brighter days!
Despite the drizzly weather I wanted a smoothie for breakfast. I’m now out of my favorite protein powder. Must get more asap!
With a side of PB toast with banana. I go through phases of eating bananas every day and then not eating them for a long time. I snagged this one from my mom’s because I missed them.
My Breakfast of Champions:
Vegas is not happy about the wet weather either. Doesn’t he look annoyed? Or maybe I’m what’s annoying him…
Question: Do you have anything you want to leave behind in 2010? (You don’t have to share what it is.)
