I haven’t had the desire to blog every day in the past two weeks while getting married and moving. Instead I’ve been adjusting to a new life and perhaps more importantly, to a new identity.
It seems like when you get married not much changes. But in my case, almost everything changed. It has been a time of so many changes and a shift in my very identity. It feels more important to figure this sort of stuff out first before blogging.
So what all has changed? A lot, really…
I’ve gotten married.
I became a wife.
I’ve changed my name.
I’ve started going by my new last name.
I got a haircut (it’s short and cute).
I got a tattoo.
I moved across the world to New Zealand.
I became the primary breadwinner for my little family.
I began looking for a new place to live.
I started reaching out to make new friends.
It seems that a lot has changed in a short period of time and that is something that takes some adjusting. I know that my new life in New Zealand will be awesome but it is something that I will need to get used to. The last time I lived here things didn’t go that well so I’m attempting to make sure my life as an expat goes more smoothly this time around.
I’ve learned recently that though this blog is important and something that I really value and hold a place for in my life that it is also not the most important thing in my life. I have a family to look out for and create (hehe) and a full time job to excel at and advance in. I have new friends to make and old friends to keep in touch with.
I have a real life that feels full and busy and that is something that for a while I didn’t really have when I started this blog. I started when I was in college and after I graduated I wasn’t totally sure who I was or where I was going.
Well, I’m here now.
I’m not at my goal weight and I still have a million fitness challenges I want to do. But for now I’m figuring out the here and now of my life that is super exciting in other ways. With all the changes in my life it felt like a good time to also change my blogging up on this blog. Because why not change everything once in a while? So my posts might be sporadic for a while and I might blog a lot about adjusting to this new life adventure instead of what I ate for dinner, but I hope as always this blog continues to be the record of my totally rad life that is always changing in exciting ways.
