Back in the Ring

Hi All! I've been kind of out of the social media world a bit. As you may have read in the last post, it has been a little chaotic with all the various things going on!

To be honest, I have been caught up with all the things going on in my head! "I'm gaining weight! I need to work out... Yes, I'm gonna work out. *sigh* but I'm so tired... ehhh, I'll just go home after work. My pants don't fit the same anymore. I need to work out." And the cycle continues.

Another thought crossing my mind: "I should go back to school. It's really just expensive networking. Ugh, I hate networking. I'm so bad at it. I never know what to talk about. But school would be good. Oh, it's too expensive. Maybe I won't. But I should...."

Anyone else going similar things?

I was talking to a girlfriend who JUST went back to school herself. We both always said, "School is not for us. We're never going back!" We both thought we were done after our bachelor's degree! But with the way things have been with the job market and just the way the economy has been and just... growth in people, I've realized how important it is to stay on top of everything. To stay sharp. I've also realized, after my talk, that really, I'm just insecure and need to work on my own confidence, which means networking and small talking... even if it means doing it while back in school.

I'm still sitting on the fence. There are so many other things happening in my life right now and I really just need to focus on myself. And learning to be comfortable with who I am. Confession. I am not comfortable wearing dresses (not all the time anyway) and shorts because I've always felt insecure about the way my belly/thighs looked in them (especially with all these cute petite bloggers out there!). I think I need to work with that first... and move on from there.

What do you think? Are there insecurities that you deal with? If so, what?

  1. Hi :) I hear ya on contemplating on going back to school even though a part of me does see it as expensive networking. Maybe next year? :)

    I feel the same about trying to lose weight. I've recently gone on a juicing diet (or at least trying to). I hope it works!!
