Last week I found my first full grey hair and I feel like I’ve developed serious under eye wrinkles recently. So I guess you could say things are going well.
I feel like the last couple of months have simultaneously gone so quick and have lasted F O R E V E R.
I think I speak for both myself and my co-blogger in this too. Lucky for you guys, we’ll be going on a co-blogger retreat in less than two weeks (because even though we run this thing together, we rarely get to see each other) in which we have intentions to come up with some new content for you guys and get some writing in, but in reality we will probably just talk about our lives, eat, and drink whiskey. So stay tuned for what may or may not come of that weekend. It could be exciting, it could be terrible, or it could be nothing.
But to be real with you guys for a short while, it’s been a tough few months as I’ve been working on healing my body, dealing with some anxiety, not sleeping well and having some weird dreams, and most recently having to make some tough decisions. But I can see God working in all these areas, even if I don’t understand what it all means right now. I’ve seen a lot of improvement with my health in the last month, which has been a long time coming.
And on the literal bright side, we’ve been having some excellent weather in Oregon the last few weeks, and I have been soaking up every ounce of mood-boosting sunshine I can get. That means driving to a park that’s five minutes away from work during my lunch break just to soak up some vitamin D for 15 minutes before having to go back, going for runs in this sweet spot of being sunny but not hot enough that running outside makes me feel like I’m literally melting, and sitting in my backyard on the weekends to let the sun work its magic and make me dark again.
As I’m getting ready to hit publish on this post, the rain has returned, but I’m still enjoying the after-effects of the sun and looking forward to more.
I’m sorry if you made it this far expecting that I’d have something more exciting for you this week, but I’m afraid this is all I have in me. I’m trying to make it a habit of writing even when I’m feeling uninspired, so occasionally that may look like a lot of rambling nonsense. I’m honored if you still took the time to read.
Until next time, friends.
