Well here we go again - round three of “what could possibly be wrong with my foot”…
X-ray was negative 2 weeks ago… Bone scan was negative last week… But there is a visible bump and swelling exactly where it hurts, yet the last thing they told me was “well we think it might be something wrong with your tibia…”
So here I am at yet another appointment, and I am seriously considering just going for a run today along the canal anyways, because it is such a gorgeous day!
my friend at work is a feather specialist and she is doing feather extensions today! i am seriously contemplating it… the ones she has are like the ones in the JLH pic below. my only concern is if i am going to a fancy event (i.e. my mom’s graduation), will i want a feather in my hair in all the pictures?
Today, I’m finally doing it. I am finally moving forward with my plans and putting my goals into action.
For actually as long as I can remember, it was law school for me. I am passionate and self-assured (read: stubborn). I am a leader and a strong communicator. It always made perfect sense to me that a career in law was where I was headed.
I don’t know if it was attending the landmark forum, or just this year of getting a deeper understanding of know myself and my strengths, but this has changed. I’m looking at my future, and those non-negotiables I stand for in my future, and it’s not law; it’s human resources. It’s people. It’s a huge career with all the excitement, perks, and importance as law, but a totally different spin.
The other day, it hit me in this phrase: I have too much to offer to be a lawyer. Which sounds really strange, because it takes so much strength, determination, talent and skill to become a lawyer. I am seeing this more and more as I look to my amazing boyfriend who has recently accepted his place at law school…
So why did I want to be a lawyer? To be a powerful and strong woman, to wake up every day and dress in the most fabulous outfit, stand for what is right, and work the ultimate work-hard-play-hard combination every day. And I will be all of this - and in a role that is more flexible and suited to my strengths.
That’s it for now. Time to get my papers together and officially take the next step towards my post-grad certificate in human resources management. :)
Just as I was about to post this, I saw a tweet from @brightkeyinc: “top 4 values wanted by orgs: integrity, teamwork, communication, high energy.” I’m bringing it - here’s to #reachinggoals!
Two words that are a nightmare to a runner: stress fracture. Follow that with the words boot cast, and you have officially thrown a wrench in my half marathon training plans, doctor.
I’m waiting to hear the results of my xray, and fighting to take a few rest days when all I want to do is train. I’ve never been one to diet, or change my eating habits to stay fit - I’m a gym rat (says four square)! But I’ve also never been in a cast…
So here goes day one of frequent small meals, high in protein, lots of veggies, etc etc. I withheld from eating mini eggs that were offered to me today, so I know, after that, I’ll be just fine.
