As of late I have been sort of a shut in. It is typical of me to be a “slam clicker” on work trips, but at home I have been quite the same. Sure, after a four day trip, plus my commute, I am utterly exhausted so I do spend some relaxing time at home for a day or so. But after two days I should be doing more enjoyable things. Why am I not living my life to the fullest? This seems to be a recurring theme in my life. This isn’t how it is supposed to be, especially in your late 20s.
I have been doing some things to feed my soul though, such as reading, cooking delicious meals for myself, and getting a workout in several times a week. All of those things are important and necessary to my personal well-being. However, it is not entirely balanced. My soul still seeks the unknown…and the adventure. I need more live music, drives to the coast, and a few hikes wandering through nature, just to name a few. Today I bought a ticket to see Michelle Branch next week and yes, I am going alone (no shame). Concerts are about the experience and the artist to audience connection. This is just what I need since I haven’t been to a show in a while. I also took a leap and purchased a ticket to the Tone It Up tour on September 13th in Seattle. If you’re not familiar with TIU, check out their website (www.toneitup.com). Basically they are two women who run a health and fitness empire. I have been following their nutrition plan and workouts for the past eight weeks now and I have been feeing amazing. So I decided to go to their fitness festival on their tour, by myself (shocker). I am pretty excited! I am just not excited about waiting two months for it. If anyone wants to go with me, let me know!
Essentially what I am trying to say is that I am trying to satisfy my soul more and really have the best life possible. I think we should all strive to live our best lives.
