I figured out one of the reasons why I was feeling tired/down… I got a stomach bug last night.  It makes me feel a little better to know that some of my symptoms were physiological and not psychological.  😀  I already feel much, much better this morning.  Plus I sure sleeping most of the day yesterday didn’t hurt anything either.  Since I missed my scheduled workout for this morning, I’ll probably go do something over my lunch break (if I still feel good) or immediately after work before heading to a friend’s birthday dinner tonight.

I’ve been thinking about my future a lot and the endless possibilities it has in store.  A few nights ago a friend told me that it seems like I am “searching for something”.  Not in the sense that something was out there for me to find… but instead that my soul was restless.  I’ve always battled with being content with what I have, in the same way that it’s hard for me to appreciate being in the present.  I always want to do more and look ahead to what’s next.  I love looking forward to something.  As challenging as it may be, I can actually see myself finding a balance with this issue in the next few years.  Last night while reading Runner’s World Magazine, there were so many races that I’d love to do all over the country. (Click here to read about one of those races.)  The sports part of my life can always be the area that I project forward & set goals for, while also being my means/reason for travel.  Now, I just need to find the peace with my career and relationships to live in the present.  I haven’t written about this in my blog yet, but I am open to the possibility of moving… near or far.  It would have to be for the right reasons though, and the opportunity would need to present itself over the next 3 months or so while I am still homeless.  🙂  I am considering big and small cities alike.  I just want to find a place where I’m fully happy, and if Birmingham is that place, then here I will stay.  One thing is for sure though, I will never settle for anything that I don’t feel is 100% right.
