I have to admit that I have had a lack of writing motivation. It is not that I haven’t been thinking big thoughts, keeping busy and generally motoring along, but I just haven’t had the mental energy to put fingers to keyboard.
Work is going well. Really well. For the first time in my career I am getting exceptionally positive feedback. I am an esteemed professional not only within my department, but within the company. I have VP’s lobbying to have my territory switched up so they only have to deal with me. I got a tremendous shout-out from my VP that was very touching. He is giving me additional special projects that I am excited to work on. I enjoy going to the office every day and like the people I work with. Wow, what a blessing. The work load is reasonable and I don’t stress about the job. Yes, it requires a large mental load, but not in a bad way.
My fancy new gym opened and I am officially obsessed. It is 100K SF of fun. They have an indoor pool, rooftop pool, pickleball courts, steam, jacuzzi, spa, yoga studios, spin studios, huge workout floor with all state-of-the-art equipment. It is amazing. The locker room is like a spa. My work colleagues are bemused because I end up taking one shower a week at home because I work out in the morning, grab my shower there and then head over to the office.
This has lead me to reevaluate my living situation. I am moving closer to the office which is very close to the gym. The new neighborhood is much nicer. This is all leading to some lifestyle creep, which I will write about (hopefully) in coming posts.
I am not dating. I think the gym may yield some prospects, but it’s a long game. I had a very minor crush on a work colleague, but he is married and lives on the West Coast, so I have reined in the crush and am only noting what attracted him to me. That will make a nice Hump Day post.
I have lots of post ideas and hopefully I will get them written down. With the upcoming move and holidays, let’s see how it goes. There are some things in my social life that I want to address both in real life and on this blog. As always, I am a work in progress.
For now, life is good. Everyone around me is healthy, busy and content. I won’t say happy because that, to me, is a personal, subjective word.
