Back to Basics :)

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”
Og Mandino

Sorry it’s been awhile!  Lots of personal going ons recently.  I did write a post about it, but decided not to put it on my blog because while I am okay with being an open book, some people in my life aren’t and shouldn’t have to be.  The long and short of things is Adam and I have mutually decided to take a break.  Out of respect for his privacy I won’t go into details, but we were both pretty heart broken over the situation that unfolded.  We each needed time to focus on ourselves and recognized we had both become somewhat complacent with the way things were.  We’ve decided to go back to square one and really take our time this time around.  Overall, I am actually happy (despite the obvious suck of the situation) that I’ve made enough progress in my own journey to realize the situation we were in was not healthy for either of us…

This is one of the many posts I’ve started in the past few weeks but haven’t posted.  The good news is that things between Adam and I are much better now than they have been in a long time.  For the first time in a long time, I’m being treated like a woman instead a roommate or best friend- proving that sometimes you need to get through the pain to get to a place that’s worthwhile.  Meanwhile, Adam has had time to himself to really figure out what direction he wants to take in the next chapter of his life, and I have been able to appreciate him as a man instead of a buddy.  I think we are BOTH happier for having been through all of it, and that it has definitely helped improve our communication. 

So for everyone wondering where I had fallen off the face of the earth to, I am still here and doing fine!   I just was taking a breather to reflect on some things.  I definitely feel like I have grown a lot this past year, and that I am still moving in a positive direction. 

 I am still working out too, although I have not been making boot camp as frequently as I’d like to.  I even took Penny for a run this week- despite the fact that it was only 31 degrees out (my toes were frozen!!!).  I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!!!
