Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I hope you are having a great week. I felt kind of heavy after writing yesterday’s 10 year challenge post. I did my best to keep most of the post lighthearted rather than dwelling on all of my struggles through the years, but some of the struggles were discussed. I guess that kind of time traveling takes a toll even though a lot of those struggles happened so long ago.
I feel so thankful for all of the growth and progress I have made. I think I was also feeling down yesterday because I received a graduation card from my parents and a Christmas card from my godfather in Guam. My Dad’s side of the family is so family oriented and part of me cannot help but feel a little guilty for living so far away when my Dad is dealing with his health issues. It is kind of hard to find a middle ground because even back when I used to help out the family they always made it seem like I was never doing enough. Living with all that guilt made it hard for me to function so I decided to strike out on my own. I am thriving right now which is an absolute blessing that I am thankful for everyday, but there is always that voice in the back of my head that tells me I am being selfish.
I honestly do not think that I am being selfish. I am living my life and doing my best. I hope and pray that I will be able to be supportive of my family even from a distance and hopefully reconcile relationships, but it is honestly a process and a work in progress.
Today’s Workout is: 30 Minute Full Body Workout for Strength
This workout was full of challenging and wonderful compound movements. I felt like I was working my body from head to toe!
Word of the Day:
- A usually green film formed naturally on copper and bronze by long exposure or artificially (as by acids) and often valued aesthetically for its color.
- A surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use.
- An appearance or aura that is derived from association, habit, or established character.
- A superficial covering or exterior.
Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day. I also really appreciate the vent session. I think that is one of the many benefits of movement. It helps us to process our thoughts and it is also so uplifting.
I hope you will have a wonderful rest of your week!
