I need a break.

This life... it's not a contest, not a race, not a performance, not a thing that you win. It's okay to slow down. You are here for more than a job, more than a promotion, more than grades, more than reviews, more than getting up, more than getting by.

This life is not about status or opinion or appearance. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, but yourself. You don't have to fake it. You do not have to fake it. If you feel stuck, it's okay to say you feel stuck. You are not alone in these feelings. Other people feel how you feel.

There is still some time to be surprised. There is still some time to start again. It's not too late. Whatever you need and however long it takes.

I've been in a weird mood the past couple of months. I feel like I'm Michael Scott and my life is Toby Flenderson. It truly feels like a battle of psychological warfare. I'm aware my life is not currently up to speed with others around me and I think some of that has to do with wants and needs in my life... whether it be a new car, new home, new job, etc... So I've decided to take a break from Facebook for lent since that seems to be the main source of me comparing my life to others.  It is toxic and it's time to step away for a bit. I've slowly been taking steps to prepare for this because it's been a constant in my daily activities since 2005. I will still be checking in on Instagram and the blog cause I'm a realist and can't quit social media outlets all together.

Here's hoping this will help to get me outta my weird mood and bring some more positive vibes my way.

Until next time...
