Random Thoughts at Local Coffee
Have you ever had those contemplative moments that just make your mind wander and your thoughts go to unbelievable places? It’s these unbelievable places in one’s mind that incite hope and excitement over plans that have yet to come to fruition let alone even pan out of more than just the seminal thought. These places in my mind get me excited over things like the possibility of developing my brand again. Maybe I could eat better if I just tried harder. Working out? Yeah, sure. I’ll get right on that. (I should cut myself some slack sometimes.)
The truth is that my new gig is more challenging than I had anticipated. I’m no longer dealing with the drama of interoffice politics or trying to explain to others what my job role is when I couldn’t even answer the question myself. I am now in a stable place where I am growing and loving what I am doing. (Please excuse the digression, I promise I’ll get back on track in a moment.) I am in a place where I’m responsible for more than just a few social media posts on a company’s page. I am responsible for so much more. This new role in my life is challenging, but I accepted the challenge wholeheartedly knowing that I would come out of this a better person. I love that I am no longer dismally stagnant in my field. That feeling was so debilitating. I have soon realized that I have become my job.
I’ve neglected this blog for a little over a month. It wasn’t until I renewed the hosting contract that I realized I hadn’t posted in so long. So, these thoughts that I so aptly mentioned then neglected (IRONY) in this blog are about me spending Good Friday lounging and reflecting. I’m sipping iced coffee from this little place called Local Coffee at a resort shopping center called The Pearl Brewery. I’m looking at all of the hipsters running around with their cameras and culturally-diverse array of dogs, and there is so much hope. This whole complex is full of hope and new beginnings. I then connect these thoughts to the revamp of my blog and internet brand - my personal one. Secretly, I want to be one of these free-spirited people with a camera taking pictures for my city blog. This is what excites me: expressing my visual thoughts and sights with the world through photography and words. These unbelievable thoughts are probably unattainable since today is just a holiday, and I’ll return to business as usual on Monday through Friday. Dare to dream…
I think I’ll have a salad for lunch today. Maybe Cured? I’m going to bask in what’s left of a gorgeous day here in San Antonio (they are so rare).
