Do you have memories that pop up every year, around the same time?
Like apple picking in the fall, singing carols at Christmas time, blowing the seeds of a dandelion in late spring.
Well..I am suffering with something similar...last year, the day after my second half marathon, I was laid off.
Some people call these body memories. Now in all honesty, do I think I am going to be laid off the day after? No, but I didn't think I would have been last year either. I also will say, I am super lucky to have been employed from November 2012 through now. I work with some awesome people, and I am hoping the aftermath of the half marathon this weekend will be much better than last year.
I haven't talked much about my insecurities where my job lies. We recently merged with another company, so of course I am not "secure", but anymore anyone who thinks they are, are crazy!
I have come a long way in the last year as far as my self-esteem goes. The place I had been working at, stripped my self-esteem and left me very empty. I work very hard, and everyone seems to respect me. This is much more the way I felt at my place I worked in May 2012 that filed bankruptcy.
Anyway..please forgive me, for taking a lot of time for myself lately. I need to continue to grow and heal. I am not completely healed. I am working on it. The memories the last few weeks have been overwhelming.
Tell me about your body memories. Or your favorite childhood memory.
Tell me how would you embrace your future and make it brighter?
Who will give me a sweaty hug after my third half on Sunday?
