Every morning, I wake up around 7:00 am. And every morning I contemplate running. I LOVE to run. But I also LOVE lounging. And laying in bed. I am trying to make a conscious effort to stay active despite my work schedule (or lack there of some days). I have approximately 6 1/2 weeks until my 25th birthday and I want to take a sweeeet vacation with Trevor somewhere gorgeous (I know, I already live in Hawaii ;)). Because we’re out here and close to neighboring islands, I’d like to see Tahiti, Marshall Islands, Fiji, Australia, and of course the rest of the Hawaiian Islands. Anyways, I want to start my life at 25 (a quarter!) healthy, fit, toned. It’s been hard giving up El Mariachi. Mmmm. I also want to start 25 with a new/better mindset. I want to reorganize my priorities. I’ve already been working on them since I’ve been out here. But I want to solidify my efforts by 26 :)
25 marks – to me at least:
- Tuning my focus on – my schooling (getting my Master’s), my career (in speech therapy?), my relationship, and all other future goals
I want my birthday vacation to be a mile stone. I still feel like a kid and it’s time to grow up. Not all they way, though :) Believe me, I’m going to keep having fun in HAWAII!
I guess I got a little off topic. SO this morning I ran the loop. Lanikai’s like a ghost town on Sundays. Everyone’s at church. I hold church on Sunday mornings, too! In the ocean.. swimming.. surfing.. snorkeling.. or hiking.. running.. appreciating what God has provided me with. I ran the loop and immediately after jumped in the water. Running clothes and all. It’s seriously the best feeling! All hot and sweaty and gross and then cool ocean water. I floated there for 15 minutes. Swam around. And got out. It was beautiful this morning.
Unfortunately by the time I got out of the shower it was windy, overcast, and raining. I decided to pack up and head to Starbucks. Got my usual – Skinny Mocha. I’m here now working on my modules and quizzes. I am getting credentialed through the Department of Education (DOE) so I can work with my client (who has autism) at his school. That’s a step forward, right?
