Sleeping with Bread

I have not done a Sleeping with Bread in awhile and I felt I was long overdue. Especially since this is really one of my favorite memes.

Lately I have decided to accept that I live here in Brandon and that is okay. I really don't want to be here, I want to be in GA, but that obviously is not in the cards right now.

I had been kind of in a limbo state, just waiting to get a job in GA so that we can move and not joining the YMCA or anything, because, why? I am going to be moving...

Well, I have decided to accept that the next and final move will come when it will come. For now I will enjoy life here and make the most of it. At least being here cut the distance from family in half of what it was when we lived outside of Dallas.

Along with that I get bored in my current position, it is not as hectic as my last one, which is a good thing, but I find I am bored because of it. I am not challenged in a way that I have grown accustomed. So, I am working on trying to find ways to challenge myself in this position and to be thankful that I am in a good position instead of being unhappy about being unchallenged and bored.

I used to be full of energy and so optimistic and I don't know when that changed. I do believe for the most part I am viewed as an optimistic person to most that I come in contact with, but in my heart lately I have not felt it like I used to show it. And the truth is I have every reason to be optimistic about work and life. Something else to work on...

So, in the new year I am joining the YMCA and will do a water walk every morning. In the afternoon on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I will go back to do toning. My husband is gung ho about this, which does not happen often so I am hopeful that we will stick with this and that the energy created by the exercise will flow over into my brain and help with these other areas.


  1. I think that accepting where you are is a big thing... It also makes things easier on you. Good luck with that YMCA thing...

  2. Not unlike you, I don't know that this is the 'happiest' position I've ever been in--however, there's still a usefullness to G-d and others. And He's not made arrangements for different (yet!).

    Make good of where your feet ARE--sounds like that's the plan. I think that's a very wise plan.

    (I get bored if I'm not challenged, too...PLENTY of challenges in this deep end of the pool...LOL)

  3. I would have to say that as many times as I have moved, I just have to make the best of it. I think joining the YMCA is a great idea, and I am planning on joining some kinda gym after the firts too! I have a beach vacation to work on!! Hope you both have a Very Merry Christmas, and travel safe!!

  4. I hope this Christmas season brings you peace - thanks for sharing with us!

  5. Joyous, peacefilled wishes to you and yours on this Holiday--and always!

  6. Good luck at the Y. I know that I am feeling very challenged to make a real effort with my health right now. I hope that the companionship of your husband helps in this area.

    Thanks for sharing. I always feel like your posts are very insightful.

    Merry Christmas (1 day late) and Happy New Year!

  7. Nice post, so recognizable! I find I react the same way as you do: I increased my efforts at the gym and as a result of feeling physically more fit there is also a more optimistic feeling ... Best of luck in realizing your dreams!
