Last weekend, some friends and I had an unusually deep conversation over brunch, talking about various struggles in all of our lives.Â
One of the girls said â€œhave you ever noticed just when you think things will never get better is right before they actually do?”
Iâ€™ve had a hard time emotionally over the past few months, and last weekend slash that long week between the holidays, I was having an especially hard time and so ready to get back to work and my normal routine this week. (Yes, I am that weird who wantedÂ to be back at work.)
Monday came around, and I was still feeling really down and feeling in need of somethingÂ to change, even if it was just my perspective. I opened up to family and friends and slowly started feeling better (and, again, so happy to be back to a regular schedule.)
Within a day or so, my perspective and feelings started turning around drastically.
I just came back from a weekend trip out to Shelter Island with friends that included lots of vineyard-hopping (my favorite!), I am going to events with both Jillian MIchaels andÂ Bob Harper (separately, ha) this week, and then I get to hop a plane this weekend to run the Bahamas Half.
While yes, those are amazing highs, Iâ€™m also really happy with my normal, too, and this shift in perspective, focusing on what I doÂ have, over what I donâ€™t.
