mum·bo jum·bo


i often have a vivid imagination.  sometimes i tend to mix my dreams with reality.  but today and yesterday i have been processing.  sifting.  looking at cold, hard facts.  bringing myself back down to reality and trying to keep my sanity at the same time.  i am learning lessons - lessons i know i will probably forget again, and have to keep learning over and over.  learning that no matter how much you wish certain things to be true they are not.

i hate that one.

no matter how much you dream, dreaming with your eyes wide open, doesn't mean the things you wish will come to pass.  i am walking the tight rope between hope and reality.
dreaming has it's place.  it gets us through our days.  but now it is time to get my head out of the clouds, my toes are touching the earth, and reality has slapped me upside the head like of ton of bricks.
i am okay.  navigating through your own head and heart can be tricky.

So yesterday I was at my friend's house and we were setting up a blog for her upcoming adventures as she moves to Antarctica.  I happened to come upon my blog, and realized how long it's been since I have written.

Things are going really well heath wise.  Last time I checked my PFTs were mid nineties - still on the incline.  95% if I remember correctly.  I workout at a pace of a normal, fit person.  I have been really enjoying long boarding this year.  Next I want to take up (or at least try) stand up paddle boarding in the sea.

So yeah, just a quick update to let you know I am alive and kickin.  My life is not perfect, but I am doing well and my lungs are too.  Next time I check back I hope to say that I blew a 100% PFT.

Oh and heads up - you are definitely going want to check my friends blog in say oh about a month.  She is an amazing writer and person.  It's :
