One Month, and a Celebration

It's the end of July! Wow time really does fly. I can't believe it's been a month since I left my job. It's a good feeling though. It seems like a noose around my neck has been loosened. I feel I have made the third best decision in my life. The first one was giving my life to Christ. I have been complete since I made that decision. The second one was getting married to my husband. That I haven't regretted.

My work is going a bit slower than I expected though. Sometimes everything flows, I'm excited and I can't wait to get all my thoughts down on paper. Sometimes I have stuff in my head but I can't work up the enthusiasm to write anything. And sometimes I get on my computer and start stressing instead of doing useful work. Still I'm learning a lot as I research and write a little every day. I've resumed my passion for reading as well. In the last week I have bought four books that I want to read. That should get more ideas going.

If you follow my other blog, you might have guessed I had a special date this month. Yes it was our second wedding anniversary! Traditionally that's the cotton or china anniversary right? Hubby and I went out to celebrate and we had a great time. I still can't believe it's been two years already. Time really does fly. I remember talking to a couple recently. They had been married for 46 years. I was like wow! That's a long time to be with somebody. Sometimes I still find it scary to imagine being with the same person for that long, but that's the essence of making a lifetime committment. I pray that hubby and I will go on to celebrate 46 happy years together - and more!

I took up jogging recently. I finally stopped giving myself excuses not to improve my fitness level. I've only been doing it for two weeks and it's only early in the mornings for now. But I hope to continue with it and get better and fitter as time goes on. Maybe one day I'll be able to join blogville's long-distance runners: Londonbuki, Vickii and Calabargal at the London marathon. Ok maybe that's going too far....

  7. Happy Anniversary Girl!! Wishing you both many more happy years together.

    Well on on your running. It may be laborious right now trying to run for long distances but i assure you it is fun as time goes on. I'm loving it!

    Download Robert Ullreys podcasts - "Couch to 5k". They are very useful podcasts to listen to while running and caters specifically for beginners. The link is in one of my June 07 posts.

    I'll send you and email before I write an epistle in running on your comments section.

    Looking forward to running with you at the Hydro Active Race at Hyde Park on Sept 16th. Look it up!! You've got 6 weeks to train. LOL!!

  9. Babe....you inspire me everytime! You are very courageous. Quitting your job for something you love is very brave and as a result, I'm moving away to do something I've always wanted to do (will blog about it later). Congrats and I wish you and hubby many more years together.

  13. Well done on the achievements and letting go of some of the bargage. I did that some weeks ago myself and it felt great a relieve and tight the knot a year ago too. Never a single regret, but a lot of hills, which we always make sure never turn into mountains - so each molehill crossed, we became stronger and smarter. Love it love it love it.

    Will be back.
