meet me monday?

April 13, 2015

Kind of a silly post title, I know. But what else should I call these new little meet-cute mondays (ohmygosh did I just solve it!? on second thought…no…). I thought I’d occasionally do more of a personal thing around here and you can follow my Twitter / Facebook for more “motivation monday” link-age.

the best things in life are worth the riskNot sure about you, but Monday mornings always end up being these deep reflective times for me. Especially on my commute (shout out to my fellow bus riders!).

Generally speaking, we spend our weekends how we want to. Doing activities we enjoy and meeting up with people who make us happy. Essentially, we do the things that “fill our bucket.” And that always makes me come into work on Monday, reflecting on my week, my life and my goals.

Am I doing the things I want? Am I contributing to society in a positive way? Do I feel like a better person, or am I fully utilizing my talents?

Friday night, Ryan and I went to see Fast and Furious 7. If you’ve never basked in the glory of a Fast and Furious film, let me catch you up to speed (ha, puns): expensive cars, hot girls and big muscles. It’s also pretty cheezy at times. However, rather than a testosterone-filled ending, Fast and Furious 7 featured a tribute to Paul Walker. And guys? I cried. I’ll admit it.

Paul Walker was supposedly a very sweet actor and (from articles I read here and here) a good human being. And his light was extinguished way too quickly. But look at the legacy he left. He’s positively remembered and seemed like he enjoyed the life he lived.

I guess what I’m rhetorically posing to myself and to you guys (and the universe) is are you happy with what you’re doing?

Honestly, I’m not sure if I am. I’m happy with a good portion of my life. Most days, I feel extremely lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people and have the opportunities I do. But somedays, it’s a little harder.

Somedays I question what I’m contributing to. Am I working toward my higher goals? Am I growing as a person? Am I being a good friend, daughter and wife?

I’m hoping to make a few changes…a few risks…over the next few months that may help me get where I want need to be. Per usual, will keep you updated.
