rest and reflections...

I would love to do this all weekend....Moses has the right idea.

I have finished with both of my finals and I now have a glorious 2 week break from school! I have mad plans to get so much accomplished! (I even have a list!) and I have all good intentions of getting said list done, but we all know where the road of good intentions can sometimes go...

I am catching up on blog reading, as well as items around the house, and in doing so I came across some interesting posts that spoke to me. Lisa, over at Lucid Moon Studio, talks about budgeting her time. That lucky girl is only working part time now! And Andrew, over @ The writing and art of Andrew Thornton talks recently about his great expectations of life. I can feel both their pain. I've been whining about school so much lately that I haven't had time to do much of my laundry either, and I've always had grandiose ideas of myself and my life and what I was going to be when I grew up, and it is nothing like what's going on now. Not to say I'm disappointed, (I've accepted that I will never be a principal dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet, and it is the hardest part, I've come to terms with that), I've just realized that this is what life is, and everything I've done until now has brought me to where I am. And where I am now is only temporary, nothing is static in life, and I'll get to where ever it is I need to be at exactly the right time, when ever and where ever that is. It's difficult, though, not to be frustrated or anxious or antsy, for something else to happen, or happen sooner, or better, or faster, or just altogether differently. I remind myself of that often, when I feel like things aren't going my way.

All in all, things are good. My beloved is happy, Scotty and kittens are happy, we are not covered in snow and ice, and the weather is warming. We are healthy, every one.

Enjoy your day, where ever you are, and remember that is exactly where you are supposed to be right now.

peace
