Checking In and Update!

Friends! Hi!

I hope you are all doing great. I have really missed you all!

First off, I wanted to apologize for my lack of posts over the past few months. To be completely honest, the last few months have been tough. I started work at the end of September, and I'm a full time social worker. I spend majority of my days working and for a while, I would come home and be so completely exhausted that I would put my PJ's on immediately and start Netflix. I got into a really bad routine. I stopped taking care of myself. I worked, slept, and hung out with my husband when he was home. I didn't workout, blog, or do anything that used to make me happy.

My routine made me sad.

I found myself getting into a funk. I was always miserable, unhappy, and tired. My husband could really tell. I didn't want to do anything that involved anything other than Netflix, PJ's, and my home. After  I really began to notice changes in myself physically, emotionally, and mentally, I knew it was time to do some soul searching.

I really wanted to figure out exactly what used to make me happy? What things used to make me feel productive, successful, and confident with myself? What could I do again to bring the old Jen back, because I missed her and I know my husband did too.

Well with some help (and serious prayer), I remembered a few things.

The number one thing that I stopped doing was working out and taking care of my health. Working out is something that I used to do my whole life. I mean, I played college soccer so sports and fitness were literally my whole life. It was constant and something I could always depend on to be there. It's a fantastic natural stress reliever and helps you better yourself at the same time. So to get back into it, I made it an appoint to push myself to run or workout at least 4 times a week. It's a number that I can commit to and feel confident that I can complete it. So far, since I've made that goal, I have been able to achieve it and I can already see a difference in myself.

I also remembered that blogging and planning makes me happy too! SO here I am.

But this time, It's going to be different. I am going to blog about everything. I want to share my world with you and I know this is the best way for me to do it. I always feel like I have something to share with the world but never sure how to do it.

So here I am world. I am going to be open and real. I'm going to share with you my life in terms of life in Hawaii, blogging, planning, health and fitness, and my new found love of Essential Oils.

I hope your happy to see a new post from me, and I know I am happy to be back. I'm ready to make this journey mine again, and I know this is a great place to start! Please let me know if there is anything you want to know or see, and I would be happy to address it!

PS- I hope you love to see Hawaii pictures, because man this island is beautiful.

Until next time,
