Adjusting: Highs and Lows

By  | 

Pull it together

It’s been a few weeks since my last post and I’ve been trying to keep myself distracted. I had the time to write, I just couldn’t wrangle all of my thoughts together. It’s been a strange couple of weeks. I’ve experienced highs and lows. Don’t get me wrong, I still love it out here. We do SO many awesome things on the weekends. If you follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram you’ve seen all the pictures! From hiking to hanging out by the river, to visiting new towns, there’s always something to do. It’s the weekdays that take a toll on me. I’m not working yet. Still adjusting to this new life. Mike’s been my rock. He’s such a hard worker. I don’t know what I would do without him.


After our friends left a couple weekends ago, it set in for us that we’re really out here all alone. Like I said, it’s not so bad on the weekends because we’re together, but the weekdays are so isolating. I’m trying to stay busy, but I started feeling pretty low about 2 weeks ago. I wasn’t “depressed” but I was down. My anxiety was sneaking up on me. It was probably the combination of those two things that made me a total waste case. On top of that, I was dizzy and had a terrible headache for about 3 days in a row. I’m not sure, but I think it might have been the altitude finally getting to me.

What to do…

Luckily, it subsided. Every now and then I still feel a bit dysfunctional, but I think I’m adjusting. I applied to one job, it was a writing job, but I never heard back. I’m doing my best to not let that get me down. After all, I know that I don’t have a degree, but I really LOVE writing. I write my blog, the same way that I speak, so it’s not as ‘professional’ sounding. I can do professional though. Heck, I was great at writing school assignments.

Don’t Settle

I’m trying to keep an open mind. I know that I could always fall back on personal training, there are tons of gyms out here. The thing is, I don’t want to settle. I was good at training, and I truly enjoyed it and all of the people that it allowed me to meet, but I love writing. We didn’t move across the country to just settle. I’m trying to stay positive. Whatever is meant to be, will be. After Thanksgiving I’m going to start looking for other opportunities. Until then, I’m really going to do my best and focus on the blog. I want to write more things of “substance” to prove that I CAN.

So, that’s where I’m at right now. Thanks for hanging in there with me, guys. It’s gonna get better.

Until next time…
