Thursday’s Tangents

Here is a Triple Tangent Thursday post, plus some!
  • The Family Life: It’s not getting any better. I thought things were on the road to recovery, but I should have known better. Normally I would have my dad to count on, as a sounding board, but it seems he have abandoned my ship too. I don’t bring my brothers into, because they’d rather stay neutral and who can blame them! I don’t even want to be stuck in this war! I’ve never felt like such a failure or spent so many nights crying myself to sleep. It’s a horrible movie I wish I could stop from playing.
  • Angry Run: Twice in the last week I have run just to burn off some anger and frustration. Yesterday morning I was up with the sun and the thought of lacing up my running shoes just seemed right. Without my Garmin, MP3 player or cell phone I headed out of my house. I can’t tell you how far, how fast or how many calories I burned. I can tell you that I ran until I cried. Down the street, around the corner, through the neighborhood, one foot after another — I felt the bottled up emotions leaving my body. In that moment, I loved running. Then I stopped to cry. By the time I got back home I felt relief come over me. 
  • Life Sucked Out of Me: With everything going on I haven’t felt like myself. I’m off balance, I’m behind, I’m not my happy self. I hate feeling like this, more than anything. At night I wish to wake up to better days. I feel like I have become an old, colorless person that has had the color erased from her life. 
  • Time to Move: Anyone who knows me knows that moving out of Florida is what I am working towards. I had a moment of clarity on my run yesterday: staying here is NOT an option. It’s not good for me, or my health. Project Move Sabrina is officially under way. Support on this “project” has come from a somewhat surprising source. 
  • The Boy: Please excuse me as I hold back the tears here. He has been my rock. Hands down, I don’t know how I would be getting through this without him. He has been my happiness, my supporter, my comforter, my shoulder to cry on, and my laughter. When I cry tears of sadness and pain, he always finds the way to turn them to tears of happiness. He says and does things that give me so much hope. He is so genuine. I believe in him, and us. His family is something to be treasured. I met them for the first time on Tuesday and I can see why he is the person he is. We’ve embraced the topic of moving, he is open to the idea once he finishes college in the spring. He closed our discussion of moving with: “You deserve to be happy and you should have all the happiness in the world”. For the first time in my adult life I can actually envision a future with a relationship. 
  • Blogging: I just haven’t felt like blogging. Writing or reading. That passion isn’t there. It’s hard to be passionate about blogging when so many other things are weighing on me. I wish it wasn’t the case. I wish I could write through all the pains and feelings, but the words never seem to come. And speaking of, yesterday was my One Year Blogiversary. I have a “looking back” post that I hope to have up soon.

Monday’s Musings

It’s been a while since I sat down to right, although I have often wanted to. My mind is cluttered with all things and I just haven’t been able to put them on paper. Today is about the main points and I hope to expand on all things throughout the week. One thing is for sure, I miss having the desire to blog more frequently.

  • You can safely assume that healthy living has been on a vacation.
  • Last week Alex and I spent four wonder days at Walt Disney World. I didn’t want it to end. Ever.
  • As of this week I am back on MyFitnessPal. For the moment I am using it to help me be mindful about the meals and recipes I am creating at home, and not so much counting calories.
  • Yes, Alex and I have been cooking a lot. A few weeks ago we made Taco Salads and yesterday we made a low sodium tomato soup and Ricotta cheese!
  • Life here is moving forward. Many positive changes in the works and the future look bright.
  • And may I just say that the weather in Florida has FIALLY dipped into the lower 80’s and upper 70’s, Hallelujah, I never thought the days would come!
