It’s been a while, take two.
I decided to pipe down on spirituality, blogging and travel so I could get back into focusing on working in the practical world to see where it takes me. It’s taken up my time for about two months and the results have been less than awesome.
I worked very hard for about 2 months almost in isolation in a small room and recently found myself feeling the same way I did when I decided to peace out from this kind of work the first time, which was around a little over a year ago. I realized that sometimes history repeats itself to remind you of the choices you made the first time and why you made them. And I believe all that has resurfaced over the last couple of weeks has definitely been influenced by the Venus Retrograde period, which is currently in motion right now. I won’t get into that in this post but you can always google about it.
So during these 2 months, I worked alone a lot and found myself getting into a mundane routine. I also kept experiencing resistance with the projects I was doing (things not going right, machines breaking down, setbacks, wasted materials, and pretty much anything to do with Murphy’s Law). And because of this, I was misjudged and treated unfairly, once again.
This did not sit well with me after multiple attempts to keep going but hey, I’m still at it for now and learning to handle things properly this time. And the only way to handle things properly and make better decisions is to find an outlet: A place to turn negative energy into positive energy in order to regain clarity to move forward in the right direction.
My outlet is the gym. Anytime I go there and go hard with my workouts, it feels like an internal reset of whatever was offset when I walked in. When I’m there doing my non-routine workouts, I mentally trash everything that made me feel offset, and I end up leaving with a fresh perspective, which is awesome and is definitely my favorite form of meditation.
Because I have gotten back into the gym grind a couple of months ago, I made a few goals and so far I’ve reached one, which is being able to conventional deadlift 225lbs again, but this time with a hook grip! Woop woop! I’m excited to achieve more but I’m trying to keep all my gym goals personal for now as it is my favorite form of meditation.
So because my choice to go back to a job I had originally cut ties with isn’t working out once again, I am going to start getting back into spirituality, blogging and travel again in the same way I got back into my gym grind…but after the Venus Retrograde period, of course. Cheers!
