Happy, happy

I’m happy.

I had a great day at work…finally getting to the point where I’ve carved out my corner of that world as my own. And that my friends, was such an epiphany moment for me today. You know I’ve been struggling to find my place, to figure out what I can do to prove my value but also to settle into a place I can call “home” there. If that makes sense. And I’m finding it. Yes – I still have those uncomfortable moments. But you know what? I welcome that. It means I’m growing and stretching beyond my comfort zone. Reaching for something new and different and great. As Jillian Michaels said on the Biggest Loser the other night, “when was the last time you really reached for something?” Well, I’m reaching, and reaching, and it’s right there.

That makes me happy.

I loved every single comment left on my blog post last night. I am overwhelmed by the bloggy friends out there who are all so supportive and downright excited for me. It made me smile everytime I saw a new comment notification pop up in my email. And I’m even MORE psyched to get the Core Fusion challenge started next week!

That makes me happy.

I’m digging around as I type this to find a fun and challenging interval workout to tackle on the treadmill tomorrow. Yes, the treadmill has become my friend, out of necessity than anything else this winter. With more snow in the forecast for tomorrow, I have no choice but to make peace with it. So might as well have some fun challenging myself with some new interval workouts, right?

That makes me happy.

I’m settled into my yoga pants, making dinner with Scott (on the grill..yes, in the snow!) before a date with our DVR tonight. And that was after telling him all about my day where he sat there with the biggest smile on his face, so proud of me for it, for finally believing in myself for once.

And that makes me happiest of all.

So cheers friends (it *is* winesday afterall) – and be happy.
