My life lately has been anything but boring, bland or “routine.”
Since coming back from my trip to Nevada and Arizona, I’ve made A LOT of changes in my life (and I’ve actually stuck to them!!) And when you’re reading this, I’ll be unpacking from my trip to San Diego!
Anyway, here’s what’s been going on in my life lately.
Spent my first Valentine’s Day alone for the first time in many years. It was tough because it was different and filled with memories of the last few Valentine’s I spent with him.
But I got through it, I treated myself to flowers, sweets, a bubble bath and my favorite Mark Ruffalo movies.
I started a brand new job and I as of today, I’ve been working here for a month! I rearranged my work area and this is what my desk and view from my office space looks like! It’s a super fast-paced job and I really jumped in at a hectic time, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I love the people, the company mission and how important my job makes me feel. I’m in a really great place career-wise.
The weather in Hawaii has been insane lately. Our “winter” consists of lots of storms, rain and strange things like water spouts! Can you believe these two pictures were taken less than an hour apart? Crazy.
Another thing I’ve been LOVING lately is being awake every single morning for the sunrise. I used to wake up before the sun every morning, just to sit in silence and watch the skies wake up. But in the last few years, I haven’t done that.
In the last month, I’ve been awake for every single sunrise, and I love it. (I also start work at 5am, so technically I have to be awake, but that’s beside the point). But starting next week when the time changes, I’ll start at 4am… yikes.
A few days ago, I got back from a trip to San Diego. It was the first solo trip I’ve taken since leaving Canada, and it was liberating. There’s something about walking through an airport on your own, catching a cab and sleeping alone in an unknown place. It was wonderful.
Lastly, the other night I sat down and wrote prose for the first time in YEARS. It felt so good to let my heart spill out onto paper.
I write every day, but I haven’t written anything poetic in a long, long time and I hadn’t realized how much I missed it.
Would you be interested in my posting some of my prose here? I’ve been thinking about what I want this online space to be. I’ll be honest, initially I wanted this to be a place for many topics for the sake of monetization. However, I’m in a much different mindset now and want to focus more on my writing and photos – a more personal approach.
What do you think? ❤
