Thought Provoking

It's been over a month since my last post and I wish I could say I have some valuable excuse as to why, but honestly, it's mostly just due to business or, even more honestly, laziness/distraction. 

I've recently discovered Instagram (veebswatts07) and I cannot seem to help myself once I get going on it. I could scroll forever!

I do notice it has me feeling a little jealous (as social media tends to do) that I'm not one of those people who lives for their work. I see tons of those beachbody coach people on instagram, and although I have no interest in that program, I find myself feeling jealous that they are making money doing simple things that they love to do (ie working out), and would be doing anyway even if they weren't getting paid. 

I've talked about this a few times before on the blog, about my feelings of not knowing what to do with my life, and it seems I have not yet overcome these feeling. Is what I am doing enough? 

Current lifestyle:
-Work to pay the bills
-Work a job that gives me time to do leisure activities (i.e. a job that I don't have to bring home with me at the end of the day)
-Participate in leisure activities (reading, volleyball, working out, writing)
-Overspend once in a while to do something bold (we may have just recently booked a vacation in mexico)
-Feel guilty for overspending, so pick up more hours at work to pay the bills

What I crave:
-Sharing my passions with more people (I wish I could teach people how to play volleyball, and I wish I had fitness companions to help share my progress)
-Work so that I feel like I accomplished something
-Make others jealous with how much fun I have working (i.e. loooooove what I do)

I'm not trying to say my current lifestyle is a bad one. I've very lucky to have the job that I do, that pays very well, and that gives me time and freedom to still have a life outside of work. I just worry that maybe I'm not fulfilling my full potential. No one knows what their potential is until they keep pushing the boundaries, but fear is a big scary beast, and I just don't feel brave enough yet. And let's be honest, even if I did feel brave enough, I wouldn't know where to start, or which direction to turn. 



  1. If I don't blog soon, I'm going to be a month out from blogging. I could have written this myself! I will say this about a lot of those MLM companies. Most people don't make that much money. Granted some do (and those are the ones that people latch onto thinking they can do it too), but for a lot of them it is side income and also...sales is hard. I keep getting approached about being one of them and they insist, well really you don't have to sell and it's not about selling, but when that's the only way you make money-yeah it is. Anyway, I totally get this post! It would be nice to have a job that fulfills you rather than one that keeps the bills paid.

    1. Yeah sometimes the blogging bug just dwindles away, and then I know it's time to step back a bit, clear my head, cone back refreshed!
      I'll keep searching for my dream career, let me know if u figure it out! ;)
