My Dream "Intervention"

Last night I broke up with my boyfriend of 6ish months. (aww...I know) But it was for the best. The relationship just wasn't fair to either of us because we both wanted different things. It had been coming for a couple weeks, I just needed to say it was over.

The strange part was the dream I had later.

In the dream, I believe, I had just broken up with this guy. I knew he wasn't the right one for me, and I guess many people around me knew he wasn't the right one. A group of ladies from my church had formed some sort of "intervention."

I don't really remember who all was there, but the one person I remember, kinda led the "intervention." I don't know a lot about her because we haven't spent a lot of time together, but she is pretty cool and fun to be around.

Michelle had written out several reason why I needed to end my relationship. As she started, I informed her I ended the relationship earlier that night. So in turn she made create a list of all the qualities and things I was looking for in a relationship. From there, the married women would look it over and give me insights and feed back on it.

Then I woke up. I think I created the list in my dreams, but I'm not 100% sure.

I kinda want to say thank you to her. But I think it would be weird to say I respect your opinion, and my subconsciousness had created situations for you to give me advice.

Oh well. If I never tell you, Thanks!

Rock on,
Lane J

Life is like Interval Training

As a runner, I have several different types of runs. There's the long run, the short run, the speed workout, and interval training. Lately, I've been focusing on the short run because I've been lazy. That's beside the point though.

During interval training, you pick a distance, usually a 1/4 mile, and you run that as fast as you can. Once you run the 1/4 mile, you recover for a few seconds, catch your breathe and repeat. The point of interval training is to improve your endurance.

Life works the same. You work 5 days a week doing the same thing week after week with no recovery. Yes, I know there's weekends for that. But what did you do last weekend, and the weekend before and the weekend before that? Chances are you did the same thing.

Even if you're not going as fast as you can week after week, you get tired. And you will at some point need a recovery.

Hello Vacation!!!

I've been working full time for a little over a year now. I take off on holidays. On Christmas and Thanksgiving I went home to visit but just long enough for the holiday.

This past weekend I went home and spent 5 days in St. Louis. 5 days? I know it doesn't seem like a lot. But when you keep yourself busy in things other than sitting around the house it makes for a very refreshing time.

Remember even the best need a time to recover! Take a weekend and go somewhere fun!
