Getting Back To Normal… Whatever That Is!

  

Look at me go… writing a blog again!

I meant to sit down and write a blog yesterday, but I ended up sleeping most of the day so that clearly didn’t happen.  I figured I should pick a day of the week for updates and somehow that ended up being Wednesday because it is the only day of the week that starts with a “W” and I’m writing.  However, it is Thursday and I don’t really feel like Googling “T” words that mean something about writing… so we are just going to go with it.

This week has been amazing.  I am super thankful for all the nice things that people have said and done over the last little while to help me process all the craziness that happened. I am feeling incredible and am ready to resume my version of “normal” even though I feel like nothing in my life is really that “normal.”  I think I live on a pretty awesome version of “special” where I find myself presented with opportunities that are pretty out of the ordinary.

I am going to be resuming full work days starting tomorrow which I am really looking forward to.  I have missed my routine of knowing what shifts I am working and what time I have to get out of bed.  It will also be nice to see some of my regular passengers again that always have something nice to say to start the day.

I am going to cut this blog a little bit short today because I am going to be late for an appointment if I don’t get myself out the door like 3 minutes ago.  I hope you all have an amazing week and I will chat again soon! Until next time, Be Super!

A Long Overdue Blog and a Happy Earth Day

 

I feel like I don’t even remember how to sit down and write a blog. It has been such a long time and there have been so many changes in my life I don’t even know where to begin. 

I guess I should start with the thing that is still the same since most of you will think that this is the first thing that I would change. I haven’t changed jobs and am quickly approaching my one year anniversary of driving a transit bus.  I am really happy and don’t see that changing anytime in the near future. 
The biggest change that has happened in my life is the separation of me and M.  After four years we have officially separated (again). As a result, I have moved out of our home and have become roomies with one of my very best friends. I have spent two nights in my new home and it has been great so far. 
Since my last official blog, I have been living with my parents who thankfully were able to provide me accommodations through the rough period of the initial separation. My parents and I have had our challenges in getting along in the past, but this time I would describe the past month of living with them a blessing. I have realized how precious time is and how quickly it passes by. I am really thankful that I had the opportunity to spend time with my parents while they are still young and healthy. 
As I mentioned earlier, I moved in with my friend S at the beginning of this week. I was really nervous about learning how to share my living space with a friend and uncertain about how me intruding on her living space was going to go. However, we have made it through two days together and so far we am adapting well, but I can only speak for my views of the situation. 
I have also switched back to driving the late night buses at work. It is wonderful starting work after 3pm, but it would be even more wonderful if my body would adapt to sleeping in past 10am. I’m sure with time the change will take place, but until then I am having to schedule afternoon naps into my day to make sure I am well rested for my work shift. 
I think I have briefly summarized all the major highlights of the last little while in my life. I am really enjoying focusing my energy into positive changes and striving to become more aligned and focused on my values and goals. One of my goals that you’ve probably noticed me struggling with has been writing and maintaining my blog. I am looking forward to adding the change of writing to my life and making it a much higher priority than I have made it over the last while.
I think that is where I am going to end my blog today. There are many more stories to come so stay tuned. Happy Earth Day!

Wellness hits Winnipeg this Weekend

Last night, I had the chance to check out the 21st annual Wellness Expo at the Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg. It was an amazing collection of exhibits to explore ranging from foods, supplements, natural healing, essential oils, financial planning and chiropractics including chiropractors for your dog.

I started out my tour with a lovely salt and essential oils scrub, then was given a free sample of artichoke hearts which I’ve never tried, and learned about many different supplements and oils that will help to heal various ailments at the cellular level. There were also several demonstrations of various holistic healing and energy balancing techniques.

I was really impressed by the wide range of exhibitors that were at this years show. I definitely learned a lot and have a lot more products to look at and research. It is exciting to see all the different people introducing different ways to improve our daily lives by focusing on different aspects of health and wellness.

I have to say a special thank you to my friends over at the Shaklee booth for inviting me to this year’s Wellness Expo. Make sure you stop by and learn about their lineup of health supplements, natural cleaners, beauty products, and sports drinks.

The Wellness Expo is open Saturday (today) from 10am to 6pm and Sunday (tomorrow) from noon to 5pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. For more information click here.
