I Might be Back in Action...

I feel a new vibrance today. I feel a new sense of myself, a new understanding of my actions. I understand that my daily consumption of a grande caramel macchiato might not be in my best interest. I understand that if I don't get my ass on the stairstepper 4-5 times a week I will continue to have to buy bigger clothes and no-they didn't magically start sizing clothes smaller within the past 5 months. I understand I have to get my financial aid paperwork in (which I did today) and set up a fiancial aid appt. at the school. (I also did that today). I understand that I need to go home after work instead of kicking it with my friends, I understand that I am doing the right thing by using up all my vacation and sick time next month to visit my aging grandparents on their way out of this world. I understand that I am damn lucky to have the life I have, and I should refrain from complaining about things that are well within my control. I understand that I can do anything I put my mind to including (but not limited to) the following:
  • Getting hired for the job of my (current) dreams, Bilingual Marketing Specialist
  • Being a loving wife
  • Having a finished home
  • Being a 3.5-3.8 student when I start my MBA program in the fall
  • Owning my own marketing business
  • Being an approachable sister
  • Being a respectful daughter
  • Losing 20 lbs by Thanksgiving
  • Having a house on the water
  • Writing a great book (or 2 or 8!)
  • Having a couple kids one day without totally screwing them up
  • Continue growing my cultural consulting opportunities
  • Having the best blog in the "Todo Chueco" category! :)

I am thankful for life today, and I have God on my side to back that up.

I'd be smart to put a similar list together. Procrastination has take control of me these past few weeks. I am supposed to be writing articles during my summer off, but I'm having writers block(yeah right, I'm just lazy).

Hopefully my upcoming trip to Spain will get me back on track. Keep us updated on what you accomplish please.

You know I will! These summer months are good for getting you in the dog nap don't really need a break because you don't do anything anyway! :) I'm sure getting out of the country (or the state for that matter) can get your mind in a different space.
