Starting Over

April 21, 2019

startingover

Well the saying above says everything about me.  

 WoW! 2015 is my last post.  I feel ashamed.  I made all these promises to myself that I would be accountable to my website and I have done nothing in almost four years!

Several things have happened since I have been gone from this site.  I lost several of my adorable cats to illnesses that came with age.  My husband did get two promotions during this away time.  He is now a Captain within his law enforcement agency.  So there have been some good times, and some heart breaking moments.

As far as training has gone, I got lazy and put myself on the back burner.  Not good!  There is a Body for Life competition and support group starting up.  I am going to see if I can still get into the group and should know something on Thursday, April 25th.  I need to start getting back on track and this would be a huge incentive for me.  Crossing my fingers.

I have come out of the closet and have now confessed my love of gaming!  I  am talking about MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing games).  I am currently playing; Star Trek Online, Guild Wars 2 and The Elder Scrolls Online.  Some can be played on consoles (think Xbox and Playstation), but I prefer to play on my PC.  I actually have a website for Guild Wars 2 and The Elder Scrolls Online .

I am also President of a gaming community called Valhalla’s Halls Multi-Gaming Community  We have such wonderful members from all over the world.  I am Kira Zeran, which is the name I go by in the gaming world.  It is something gamer’s do I guess to give another dimension between real life and gaming life.

Gaming is a great way to meet people.  You are not judged by your appearance or your wealth.  They accept you as you are.  They get to know you by your personality.  It is a genuine friendship.  Some of these people I have known for over 9 years!  We know each others ups and downs, and are always there to lend support.

So I guess you could say I am a gamer and athlete, the latter in development.  My goals at this time are to embark on this wellness journey.  I want to drop some weight and tone up by weight training.  I would really like to race in 2020.  The thoughts of running my first half marathon at Walt Disney World, Orlando, is still a goal I want to achieve.  I know this is all attainable.  I just have to focus and do my best to stay injury free.  I have a great support system and the equipment to make it happen.

I will use this website as it was intended to be.  A place to journal about my life as I reach goals I have set and the journey to reaching a balance between growth and achievements.

I want to leave with a story I read in a daily devotional on YouVersion:

Once there was a child that was enjoying playing in her sandbox.  Her father decided to take her to another place that she would enjoy even more.  She cried as her father picked her up to leave the sandbox.  She couldn’t understand why he would make her leave.

Her father tried to reassure her that everything would be just fine and he was taking her to somewhere better.  Those tears quickly dried up as they pulled up to a beach with endless sand and beautiful water.  The little girl laughed and screamed with excitement as she ran around the beach and played in the water.

So many of us have become comfortable or just plain scared to leave our sandboxes because we cannot see what lies beyond.  Sometimes God has a breathtaking beach waiting for us but we are crippled by fear and refuse to step out of the sandbox.

Well, it’s time for me to leave my sandbox………..
