Wow! I can’t believe it’s already the 1st of November! It’s so hard to believe that there’s only two more months left of this year! WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!
On my way home, I passed by this beautiful tree. I don’t know what came over me, but I couldn’t help but turn my car around and go back to take a picture with it. Fall has always been my favorite season of the year, mainly because of how beautiful these trees look when they’re changing colors. And I couldn’t help but relate to this tree, in that fact that I’ve have been going through some recent changes myself.
Yesterday, my family came over to watch the end of the Dodger game and hangout on Halloween and it wasn’t until they left, that I realized how much I missed them. I thought about how much I missed seeing them on a daily basis. Then I thought, the times when I do see them, are so SO much more valuable to me now. It’s hard to believe that I’m 22 years old, married, a home owner and a soon-to-be graduate from college. I’ve never lived outside of my parents house until I got married and boy!… was it a big change. I’ve always considered myself an independent woman, but moving out has definitely challenged that. But I’ve been so fortunate to be where I am today.
Yesterday, I also registered for my last semester in college. What?! Hard to say, but, it was a bittersweet moment for me. In the midst of the stress in choosing my classes, I felt a sense of relief, knowing that, come May 2018, I’ll be done with my bachelors. I fell like I have so many exciting things to look forward to.
Aside from school, Stephen and I have recently started a new fitness regime… Crossfit. I’m sure if you follow me on ANY social media, you’ve noticed that. LOL. Now, let me tell you, crossfit is NO JOKE. I always knew crossfit was hard, but not this hard. It has been kidding my butt like CRAZY. But we love it! I LOVE IT. I’ve even considered it as a hobby. Stephen and I even made a rule, that we will go to Crossfit a minimum of 3x a week… doesn’t matter the day, as long as we go 3x. And so far, that’s what we’ve done. But I plan on dedicating an entire blog post about Crossfit, so there’s more to come later. 😉
Let’s see… what other chances are happening in my life? Oh yeah, my HAIR! I officially got rid of the red… I know. Why did I ever do that? Lol, so many people have told me that my red hair was their fav… but people are warming up to the caramel too 😉 Why am I bringing up my hair, you ask?! Well, with physical changes comes mental changes too.
The biggest change I’ve decided to make however, is that I’ve started to challenge myself more. Challenging myself means moving OUT of my comfort zone. I’ve learned that staying in the comfort zone doesn’t give me room to grow. And growing will allow me to reach my goals. And sometimes reaching your goals means hurting will come along the way. But it will all be worth it in the end.
And that’s all folks!
