New Job, Stress, & Getting Back On Track

So to give everyone a much needed update. It’s been awhile and I feel awful about it. I’ve taken a new job with a new company. After a long 9+ years with the same company, I’ve decided that it was time to move on. I had to do what was best for me and most importantly for my family.

I’ve been working a lot lately and the stress levels have made it difficult for me to stay totally on track. As much as I try to preach my quote” Stop making life the excuse, make life the reason” it can be followed all the time with some exceptions. We’re all human and there’s just times that if not totally 100% perfect, you still have to remember what’s important.

I worked a total of 112 hours in about 7 days. Yes you read that correctly. with driving back and forth to work, stopping for a break here and there and to eat and not always the best choices it didn’t leave much room for quality sleep if any at all.

The gym routine that I’ve been so passionate about has been put on the back burner because of this too. But this is only temporary and then it’s back to what this blog is all about & what this mission is all about.

I had a moment when I wasn’t sure that I made the right decision, I have to admit it was only a moment. It was out of pure frustration, I kept my composure and knew that the people that put me in the position I was in at that moment needed me. I wasn’t going to let them down. It’s not what I’m about. I didn’t let life get in the way, I didn’t make life the excuse to up and quit right then and there.

That my friends is progress in it’s own, and for that I’m very proud.

Learning more and more about yourself in a journey like this make all the hurdles more important.

more to come. Hope everyone had a safe and exciting 4th.
