Life Lately 23.01.16

Well, these posts usually start with “life kinda got crazy…” and it did. Again. And my feelings are starting to run wild. I’m inspired, overwhelmed, excited, and even more overwhelmed.

Last weekend was my birthday, and I had a little gathering and it was so wonderful. I invited some friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, and some friends that have recently been my rocks. A few unfortunate things happened, but over all, I ended the night so grateful to have the people I have in my life. I think my feelings that trickled into this week started there.

The Monday after my birthday party I started a new job, which is always so terrifying to me. I haven’t had a new job in over 4 years, because I’ve been working at the same two places part time while I’ve been attending University. Now that I’ve scaled back on my course load at school, I wanted to get another job to fill up some of my hours, and so we can save up more money to build our new house in the country somewhere.

Also, we had our little baby cat, Maisy, fixed this past week, and her incision got infected, so we had to take her back in for antibiotics, and she has been a little conehead for the past week and a half, it is so so sad. She’ll have to have the cone on for a while longer, because she can’t stop licking at her incision. I just felt so so bad for her, but she is doing just fine!

Basically, I was a ball of stress. We’re talking a huge, compulsive anxious mess. It was really hard, and I think most of it was just the uncertainty of my life. I hate not knowing. Not knowing if I’ll like the job, if I’ll get in trouble, what to wear, how to act, what’s allowed, what my hours will be, if I’ll be able to handle it… Looking back, it seems so silly, but tell me that in the heat of the moment and I’ll crumple into a mess of tears on the floor.

All in all, the week at my new job was great. The people are so wonderful, and I love the passion of the office. However, I ended up working 50 hours that week between all three jobs. It was hard to get outside with the doggies (who definitely felt the lack of exercise…), to keep my home the way I like it, to write my little heart out, and to cook for my husband (and to hang out with him, of course). It was hard, but today… Today I feel incredible.

This management of my time has left me feeling some kind of invincible. I’ve made new decisions for my life, and I’m left feeling empowered. I’m about to draft up some new blog posts because I’m just so excited!!

Enough of my blabbering, here are a few pictures from this week! Make sure you check out my Instagram to see more of the daily stuff that doesn’t make it on here!

Jack’s toes got a little chilli, so Heather scooped him up and carried him.

This pose took me SO long to get, and I can still only hold for a few seconds before I lose my balance, but I’m so proud of myself for getting up!

The last picture of my fruit haul will make so much sense in my next post, so stay tuned for a little bit more about my diet!

I hope you’re taking good care of yourself, dearest friends! Just know that it does get better. You’ll see the sun soon.

  1. Great job on the crow pose, I’ve been trying for years to do it but my arms still can’t hold my body up!
    I love when you include a lot of pictures of your animals, they’re always so cute to look at, I especially love the one with Tali & Maisy snuggling 🙂

    1. Mirjana, you always make me smile!
      A game change for me for Crow Pose was to put a yoga block (length wise) in front of you to rest your forehead on, so you know how far to lean forward!
      My animals make me so happy, I’m so glad you like the pictures!! ❤
      Hope you're doing well, lovely!
