Not sure I can Muse today...too tired, too stressed. I'm officially on the home stretch with my Thesis - Due July 14th and I am having a mild panic attack day about it. This is probably made worse by the fact that I have only have 3 hrs of sleep as hubby and I went to a concert last night and then miss kitty decided that 4:45 was an awesome time to wake me up.
Then again maybe this is the perfect catalyst for some musing. I'm feeling out of touch with nature at the moment and I'm sure that this is contributing to my general stress levels. I haven't really been outside much in the last 2 months. I sit on the deck some weekends while I study but sitting on the deck in our complex of town homes does not exactly constitute getting in touch with nature. Basically my days consist of getting up, going to work and sitting at a desk for 9 hrs, coming home and making dinner then sitting at a desk for several more hours with a trip to the gym occasionally thrown in (I study on the cross trainer at the gym too). So I'm not exactly getting a lot of down time to center and re-connect and I think its taking its toll. Yep, I've even slacked off on meditating in the afternoons for 5-10 mins and grounding in the shower in the morning. But as I sit here and think about it, I'm reminded (yet again) that I know these things help and yet I let them slip. I'm sure I'm not the only one guilty of this. I know better, yet it is always hard to do better.
So here's my Monday musing - if you want to have balance in your life you have to create it. Simple, obvious, something I am abundantly aware of and yet still constantly in need of the reminder. So my goal - stop letting school be my life right now.
