Well, it is has been exactly 2 weeks and about 35 minutes (at least, according to Montana's Mountain Time) since we rung in the New Year. I do apologize for not blogging as much as I should be. I really need to keep this blog more up-to-date. I have been busy, however; that excuse is a bit outmoded and relatively banal, so I don't think that is an excuse.
Today, January 16th 2011 has been a great day. I woke up and had a nice breakfast with family and pretty much caught my flight back to Montana. I was in California for just a few days (unlike last year, where I spent months there) visiting with my cosmetic manufacturer and of course, family. After I said my goodbyes, I was anxious to get back. The weather is beautiful in California and this time of year is no exception, but I was missing the beautiful, picturesque mountains that polished the ambiance of Montana. When I returned to Montana, I noticed the ground was covered in snow (although not much) so it was nice to be back.
Afterwards, I caught lunch with my sister and then headed home, where I discovered several packages. As they say, when you receive several packages in regards to a long-term project, progress is slowly developing more and more. I really do believe that I am making progress and what better way than now, in the early time of 2011. Anyways, It was a nice day.
After I made dinner, I went to the gym, as Kelly (the owner) had a Muy Thai expert come in. He recently relocated to Dillon, with his family. He is from Las Vegas and trained with the same instructor (or sensai) as Gina Carano and he is actually one of four people in the US that is certified to teach. We worked on shadow boxing, a little bit of sparring, and basically some general, yet basic Muy Thai strikes that involved the knees and elbows, as well as, general boxing. I feel like I have a lot of potential, so I definitely want to continue learning because I feel like there is a lot learn. Tomorrow, I am repeating the class, but this time he is going to work me harder. He actually said to me "Sarah, you better bring more water" so I am contemplating if I want to take in bottles or a gallon.
There is just so much to say and I think it would take a 300 dissertation to make up for the lost time, so I will keep you updated from now on. I have managed to set several goals (both short-term and long-term) for various reasons. I feel like life is more than just an experience, it is a life lesson and what better way to start this year than to learn something new. After all, it is 2012. Life continues to live itself and I think the only way to live life productively is to live it naturally. Let life lead you in the right path. Trust your instincts, but communicate with your life because in the end, it is your life that guides you. With that stated, I am hoping to blog more.
Have a wonderful evening...
