Little life update a couple of weeks into 2021. On the fifth day of the month I got let go from my job. After the dumpster fire of 2020 this probably should have sent me into some sort of downward shame spiral. The truth is that I’ve been relieved since it happened. I’m excited to move past a situation that made me cry pretty much everyday and made me feel isolated and completely worthless. I’m excited to make a clean start with work and with the new year.
I’ve started running again but I’m not sure how I feel about running in the cold. It feels good to just move my body, empty my mind and honestly just concentrate on how much I want the running to be over 🙂 Overall, exercise has been harder because the gym closed but it always feels good to partake in some sort of physical activity.
I have started changing a lot of other routines in an effort to make 2021 better. I revamped my entire skincare routine. I’ve also started eating a more plant based diet. Honestly, it means that I’m just eating more salads.
Most important, I’m trying to say yes more this year. I realized towards the end of the last year all too often my first instinct is to say no do things. So this year I’m going to say yes. I’m going to say yes if I’m invited to go up north for the weekend. I’m going to say yes to going to parties. I’m going to say yes to trying foods that I don’t like. I just want to say yes so I don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything.
That’s my life update so far into 2021. Everyday it’s making progress towards the steps of a fresh start in 2021.
