The new year has come and gone. I have established myself in a very different place. I am sitting here at Starbucks, which is actually one of the few same things that I continue to do. I am writing a blog I have 228 posts and over a thousand views. I have a novel sitting in my bag that I am working on daily. I have a two great romps of friends that span the country. And a job that, for the most part, I love. What do I want to do to continue grow and plan for the rest of the year?
I have two choices. In both options, it’s kind of going back to move forward.
I want to start playing the guitar again. That will cost me around 30 dollars a week, and will cost me quite a bit of time on a daily basis. I will need to be practicing again for at least fifteen or twenty minutes a day. That time will take me away from other things that I’m currently doing, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I will be growing as a musician and I really do love doing it. I miss it, and I hate the fact that my guitar is just sitting in the corner of my room staring at me awkwardly with it’s broken string.
The other choice is to be paying around the same amount a month to be taking kickboxing lessons. This is part o the superhero feat that I have been working towards. I want to be stronger. I want to be a fighter. I want to be a fully fledged superhero someday in the future. I’m not 100% if this is the year or that or if I should be focusing on things like music. I loved the kickboxing course that I took, and it really beats me down that I didn’t go back. It was fun feeling your body work like that and actually leave feeling completely exhilarated with yourself.
Either choice is going to lead me into a future that I want, which I love. But each will have differing type of repercussions. I am not going to be going to the gym as often if I start kickboxing. I will not have as much time or will need to reorganize my time if I begin to practice the guitar. Also, both are going to cost me money going forward which means I need to factor them into my budget. It’s kind of a toss up, but both are incredibly easy to get involved in. I just have to make a phone call and set up an appointment. Heck, I know I can do the kickboxing class online.
Either decision is going to have to wait until after I get back from New Orleans. That is when I will know what my life is going to look like moving forward. It’s not long away, and it’s an exciting time for me overall. Things are changing quick, and the new me is evolving.
