Time Marches On

Wanderlust

It has been a while since my last post. I could give you a million excuses to explain why I have not published in the past six months. Instead, I’ll give you all an update.

Back in January, I was living in Nashville and loving the city. The problem was with my job. I understand that we have to take the bitter with the sweet, but there are times when we must utilize the 80/20 rule. Nothing is perfect. So, be willing to accept the crazy twenty percent, as long as the eighty percent brings you joy. Since my joy percentage was significantly less than eighty, I decided to pick up another travel assignment.

Arizona was my home for the past six months. After the first month, I was considering making Phoenix my permanent residence. Arizona is a beautiful state. The scenery is mind-blowing. And I had developed a great relationship with my coworkers. For the first time in my traveling career, I extended my contract in April. But then, summer appeared.

I am a southern girl. I am used to heat and humidity. I worked in Tucson for three months back in 2019, but I was not ready for one hundred and fifteen degrees. It was extremely hot everyday. So, I am sure you know by now what happened. I did not extend my contract in July. The 80/20 rule was null and void due to the extreme heat.

Currently, I am in Alabama spending some time with my mother and family. I am going to use this time to pray for guidance in regards to my next step. My family laughs when I tell them that I am ready to settle down. “You do not allow grass to grow under your feet.” I will prove them wrong. I pray.

Time is precious, and it does not sit back and wait on anyone. My mind is always thinking about places to explore on this planet. But I have learned over the past ten years that I can continue to explore to see new places and meet new people while residing permanently in one city.

My steps are divinely ordered, so I wait to see where my permanent residence will be and the work He has for me.

Talk to you soon! I promise. 💗

Biking For A Cause

I recently completed the Survivingbreastcancer.org Coast-to-Coast Virtual Breast Cancer fundraiser – bike, run, walk.

It was amazing because I was knocking on the door of becoming a couch potato. It was the motivation I needed. I completed 150 miles in 4 weeks!

So, now, the plan is to stay active.

With the change of seasons, I am now walking from the parking lot to the hospital instead of taking the shuttle. It’s a good mile one way.

Every step counts. So, stay active!

Talk to you soon!

Get Back Up

Today, my son reminded me that it’s time to get back up. This photo represents the Tammi I know and miss.

Life can throw you hard balls and knock you to your knees, but don’t stay down. Dry your tears, wipe the dust off, and fight back.

There is so much more that I want to see and accomplish. I know God has much more work for me to do. I can feel it in my spirit.

So, it is time for me to get back to being the woman God created me to be. It’s time to get back to Tammi.

Talk to you soon.
