I keep telling myself that once this cold snap ends, spring will be just around the corner. Plus, we’re gaining a little bit more light everyday; another sign that spring is coming.
Being out of town for two weekends in a row really throws everything off, like sleep, diet, and exercise. So this past weekend, I went to yoga three times, did a full grocery shop, went to church, spent time with family, got some studying done, and went to bed every night before 12 am.
As such, my week is off to a pretty good start. I use my weekends to set myself up for the week, so I try to find a balance between getting things done, feeding my soul by going to church and spending time with loved ones, and finding rest. It’s hard for me to rest without feeling guilty because I always feel like there’s something else I could or should be doing. However, I’m learning to silence my inner critic. On the similar topic, read Husband’s blog post on Structured Unstructured Time.
Anyways, now that life is somewhat back on track, I really need to focus all my efforts on school again. I hope to continue writing even as I power through the remainder of my course, but I won’t make any promises. Nonetheless, keep checking back.
