Priorities

I have hobbies. Plenty hobbies. Perhaps more hobbies than are good for a single person to have. So, I thought I'd prioritize my hobbies but then I realized, I like them all. That is why I do them. I even am having a hard time with triathlon training, but I put swimming at a priority in my day. I don't want to suck at anything I do. That means putting in the time to try to do it right. So, now I'm going to have to go from a perspective of trying to prioritize what's important, to time management to get the most from all the things I like.

Here it goes - jiujitsu. Yes. Always work on jiujitsu so I don't suck at a fight later on this year. Triathlon. O the bane of my existence, how I still am oddly drawn towards you...in the sprint form. I think I'll be doing maybe one Olympic tri a year and maybe a spattering of sprint tris. Besides, it's a good way for me to get cycling and running into one event - both things I like. Mtb. I miss my mountain bike (his name is Rocky because he's a Rocky Mountain Element). You will likely have to wait until this triathlon is over, which isn't bad because the weather will be prime by then and I'll be in shape vs being out of shape and biking in crap weather like usual.  Crossfit. I will make it to the games at some point. Not this year :( BUT, I can do most of the sessions and I'm getting muscle ups. I can't stop when I'm on a roll like that.

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

I posted the snap of me with my hair brushed out some weeks ago. I wanted my friends to see the difference a brush makes. All too often, they think my curly hair remains curly. Some people don’t understand why I look at them enviously as they brush their hair in the middle of the day. Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Dream Planning Realization #1

For quite some time, I could tell my life has been slipping away from me. Not in that dying sort of way, at least not physically. However, I have sunken more into my work in the name of having a better life and all I have to show for it is - more work. Not exactly the way I thought I'd be digging myself out of the work hole. It isn't that I view my work as a hole and am unhappy with it. I love my jobs. I do. And that's part of the problem. They give me a means to meet other needs, while still being pretty darn likable. So I don't realize when I need to pull back to focus on the other things in my life. You know about the other things - friends, family, health, wellness. Things. Example - I work to earn money so I can take my family on trips to neat places. I have worked. I have made money. We haven't gone anywhere. For the past few years, my brother has been living in different places and it wasn't until recently that we ventured out his way for a visit. We m…

Beauty of things

I will miss Michelle Obama. She was classy and beautiful despite what the Facebook trolls would have you believe. She was an accomplished woman with a legal career before she stepped foot in the White House. She could be formal and she could dance the Dougie. She sang Carpool Karaoke and she spoke eloquently during official functions. She cared about the health of the youth of this nation. I was touched by how grounded she was and inspired by her achievements as a person, wife, and mother. I expected to read nasty comments by Facebook trolls, but I wasn’t ready to personally experience hearing negativity about her. The blatant comparison of her to a primate was ridiculous. Absolutely, ridiculous. If there is any animal to compare her to, it is a unicorn. While that comparison was as in-your-face as it could be, others were not. Beauty/class has returned to the White House. I heard that a few times. You can veil your disrespect as much as you like, but it’s quite easy to pull that on…
