New Birth

Sunday, June 24, 2012

So yesterday I did something I haven't done in over 15 years. I played volleyball! And you know what? I forgot just how much I love playing! It was so much fun and even though my arms and hands are sore from hitting the ball I barely even notice. And you know what else? I wasn't too shabby at it either! A friend of mine was joking about me being a back-up for their Thursday night games. Well at least I thought she was joking but if they called I would so be there! I can remember the last game I ever played in volleyball, a tournament when I was in the 8th grade. It was awesome then and it was even more awesome last night. I really did forget just how much fun it is to play and joke around and have a good time. It also made me realize just how much I've been missing out on life! I've been doing mostly nothing but going to work and coming home. Sometimes I would go over to my sister's for a holiday but my life consisted of work and home. And I'm now having a new birth I guess I would call it where I remember how much I used to never be at home. I was always out hanging with friends, going dancing, partying and just lounging around with some great people. The sad thing is most of those great people are not around me anymore and yes I have met some other great people and I have begun to spend more time with them lately but yesterday just really reminded me of how much of a social butterfly I used to be and how I now feel like a caterpillar that has finally come out of the cocoon a butterfly again! It amazed me yesterday that 2 people I had never met before both mentioned how my laugh was infections and you just couldn't help wanting to be in a good mood hearing it. My friend who invited me to the party told me yea I loved working with her, you always knew when she was in the room. Even though I'm not as social as I used to be I am a talker (bet you couldn't gather that from all my lovely blog posts! LOL!) and when I don't talk because I'm sad, sick or other people inquire "Hey you okay you're kinda quiet today". It just all seems to fall in place to remind me that I was once a very happy person and I'm finally moving my way back to that after so many years of not being happy. It's sad but at least I'm back to that now! So I'm off now to go running which I haven't done in a while (And I bought awesome mini water bottles to carry with me)! Have a fabulous day!

But I am trying out the WW etools to see if I like it. If I do then I will invest in a new scale, probably a WW one so that I can get accurate measurements!)
