today is the 2nd anniversary (birthday?) of living with healthy hunger!
in my 1-year anniversary post, I said this,
I started this blog to share my thoughts and experiences about being hungry for a healthy, fulfilling life, including nourishing my body with smart food choices. I didn’t realize just how much blogging would change my life, but it has, and I am so thankful!
the same holds true today. I love blogging. I don’t spend as much time involved in the blogging community as I used to, but I still appreciate the community, and I’m inspired by countless bloggers. I post about a variety of topics these days, often photo-heavy. blogging is a fulfilling way for me to create a digital document of life.
when I started the blog 2 years ago, I was feeling rather lost. I knew I had passions, but I didn’t know exactly how to apply them to my daily life. the blog became an outlet for me to share my thoughts about making choices to live a healthy life.
when I think back to the day I chose a name and bought the URL for this blog, it becomes crystal clear that the past 2 years of blogging, sharing, and connecting led me (and B!) to NYC, and essentially straight into the social media job of my dreams.
Integrative Nutrition’s curriculum is directly related to the reason I started this blog:
- to find fulfillment in our relationships, career, spirituality/religion, and fitness
- to focus on eating whole foods that nourish our bodies based on individual needs
Billy likes to remind me that I worked hard and dedicated a lot of time to achieving my goals, and for the 1st time in my work-life, I can confidently say that I’m doing what I love and loving what I do. I will continue to express my sincerest gratitude for this!
Billy and I went to the roof to check out the Venus transit on Tuesday night.
while up there, I was reminded that the high line is basically our backyard. you can see it in the bottom left of this photo:
and we agreed to go for an after dinner walk.
it’s easy to get comfortable in a routine. arrive home from work. put bike away. wash face. get in pajamas. cook dinner. eat dinner on the couch. watch some TV (Billy). work on photos/blogging (me). brush teeth. get in bed. zzzz.
and nights like that are wonderful! I love them.
but I also love the exhilaration of stepping outside and getting involved in the world.
today, that’s my definition of living with healthy hunger.
