I did something today that I haven’t done in nearly four years.
Got dressed to head into the office! It felt pretty crazy (and awesome) to put on real people clothes and drive myself uptown to work.
Top – J. Crew
Black jeans – Gap
Briefcase – Tumi
Shoes – Nordstrom Rack
So I’m working on a freelance project for the next six weeks which requires me to spend time in a real office in real work clothes with real working people. Y’all…I LOVE Lululemon and everything about my self-made career (and would never trade it in) but this new project is putting some serious fire under me to use my brain in a new way.
I’ll share more specifics about it when the project goes live next week but in the meantime I know you’re all wondering how I’m fitting this into my mix. It all happened so fast. I literally got a text message the opportunity one week ago, had calls about it last Wednesday and Thursday and by the Fourth it was a done deal. I felt so excited talking about the project that I knew I had to make space for it. They have agreed to work with my all over the place schedule, and that coupled with a more relaxed summer schedule overall made for a winning deal. The fact that it was a six week commitment versus an ongoing forever thing was a selling point too. While I love fitness and teaching, I also have huge passions around writing and the web so it’s so great to have the opportunity to do both.
It was a perfect first day of work and it’s been a long time since I had a first day. It ended with a super challenging but awesome CrossFit class followed by dog, wine, hummus and chip time with friends.
Here’s to a summer of growth, possibility and new connections. Never ever stop growing and expanding!
