Its been a long time

So I have decided to return to the blogosphere once again. I'm thinking about designing a Wordpress, but for now, I will remain here.

For anyone who has read my blog before, expect it to be a much different read. This time around, my blogging is not going to just be a tool of expression, but also a tool of accountability. There will be a lot of writing about my health and what is going on in my life. And seeing as I am not currently employed, it will also be incorporated into a regular, if not daily, routine. So it may not always be an exciting read. Nevertheless, it will be replenishing for me. And that is so important right now.

Anyone who knows me personally, knows that I have had some ongoing health issues the past few years (starting in my last year of college.) Having been in pretty bad shape while in NY, I decided to relocate to California. With the help of some old friends, hard work, planning, and the Universe in general, I was able to make it out here in one piece. I am finally in a place where I am able to really start addressing each issue, which I am supremely grateful for.

Going back to the whole "not having a job" bit. I am extremely fortunate to have a supportive partner who understands that this is a top priority, and that leaves room for me to take extra care of myself. Anyone who has been unemployed for a longer period of time knows that not having a routine can be pretty disastrous. It can eventually lead to depression (has happened to me) and turn into a cycle of self hatred. Not Good.

I am beginning a yoga commitment (2-3 times a week) and am also starting to meditate daily again. I will most likely bring up these two topics frequently here. If all goes well, I will be adding other activities to my ongoing routine (expressive journaling, food journaling...) There will probably be talk of relationships (did I mention I just got married!) and friendships, and just life in general to round it all out.

Ready, Set, Go....
