These days I distinctly remember when as a young girl I thought 30 was so old.
These days I distinctly feel that 30 has not been good on my body.
I hope by 35 I'll feel better about this time in my life.
I know I'm in the thick of it right now, with two small children, a full time job, house payments, car payments, big vacation plans, surgeries, chasing new, not quite developed goals.
My work days are too long.
My body has been hurting for days.
New aches almost every day.
I can barely eat anything, as I have developed some serious food intolerances, and I fight bloat all the time. It's uncomfortable, and frustrating.
The house is such a mess, I don't know where to begin, and so I don't begin many times.
Today I will concentrate on drinking a lot of water, being present despite the headache, and taking just one small step/action as time permits.
I have thought a lot about this space, and what Pop Off The Page is about.
I want more time literally Off The Page: less computer, TV, phone; more outside, face to face time, projects, art, adventures. Things and people that bring joy and excitement. Have that joy and excitement inside of me, radiating it to my friends and family.
