I had different intentions for today’s post, but it lead me here.
Over the weekend I had to reassess boundaries; not just with my ex but life in general.
On Memorial Day every year, Crossfit gyms across the country do “Murph:”
“Murph” is a CrossFit Hero WOD (Workout Of the Day) named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. He was 29, of Patchogue, N.Y. Lt Murphy was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor after his death.”
It not only honors Lt. Murphy, but also as all those who’ve fallen during their service. I wasn’t going to do it but I said if I could wake up early then I’d go since I wanted to do the 7:20am time slot.Well I ended up waking up at 3:35am ready to go.
I clearly had PLENTY of time before the workout, so I decided to just read until the sun came up.
After I made a coffee and slowly sipped it. It was nice to have such a peaceful morning in solitude to just be one with my mind.I felt so refreshed that when I did the workout, it flew by. Having such a clear mind allowed me to dominate my workout. From that moment, I knew I wanted to “reset” myself.
I decided to create a whole new Instagram account that is personal. I used to have one for my blog as a “professional” account but I felt pressure to always post, try to create traffic to my blog and so forth.
I felt that I couldn’t be 100% me because I didn’t want it to impact my “business” as a blogger. I threw that out the window and just deleted my “minimalistishcoffeemom” Instagram all together and made a personal one.
It felt SO good.
As I continued to read “hello, habits,” I continued to reset and rebuilding. I ended up decluttering and cleaning out my closet again. It had become so chaotic that I knew I needed to reevaluate what I had and make it more practical.
I noticed for myself when my closet is a wreck, so am I. You can just shove things in the closet, close the door, hide the chaos and ignore it. I felt I was doing this in all areas of my life and I could feel burnout coming.
So what now?I’m just taking it day by day and trying to build a new routine not only for myself, but for the kiddos. I used to post at 5:45am on Sundays and Wednesdays, but for now I will just post when I feel creative.
No pressure.Just “one day at a time.”
