And just like that, my mini vacation is coming to an end. I apologize that I have been a tad distant from the blogger world the past few days.
When I walked out of the office Wednesday afternoon, I knew I had a jam packed schedule ahead of me. What I didn’t know is how exhausted I would be by the end of it because it was just Such.A.Blast.
My Mini Vacation Highlights
running with my favorite boys
Drinks and celebratory sushi
A night in the mountains
A mentally and physically challenging hike in the mountains
The most fun race I have ever participated in
And some time catching up with old friends for an old fashioned Sunday Funday.
While I don’t think I could have packed too much more into my mini vacation, I wouldn’t change a second of it. I woke up this morning, and slowly enjoyed my coffee while I started thinking about everything that I have ahead of me.
I really don’t know what’s going to happen at this new position. I know it’s going to be challenging, I know it’s going to be emotionally harsh at times, and I know the hours will be long.
But more importantly, I feel like I am joining what seems to be an amazing agency that really cares about their employees and the work that they do. I have an amazingly supportive family that I know will have dinner on the table for me after long days, and fully support me when I choose to hit the gym for an hour after a 10-12 hour day, just for my own sanity.
What I want to prioritize during the next couple of weeks is staying level headed during such a huge time of transition. I want to continue to prioritize my family, my health, and my overall balance that seems to be the first thing to drop when times get busy.
Of course, I fully intend for that to include my LOVE here at Chocolate Medals, so bear with me while I mumble and share with you all my ups and downs of this little roller coaster I’ve been on. The support I get from you all means more than you know — so I hope you stick around 🙂
And just because. . .
Scenes from my morning bike ride. . .
The beautiful Sloan’s Lake, just part of my bike ride this morning that may or may not have ended with me stopping at a cupcake shop for “final celebration treats” to wrap up my mini vaca. Gluten free mexican chocolate for me, and I can’t wait 🙂 Life is all about balance, am I right?
Any advice for me going into all this?
