Time for a snapshot:
#soul – I discovered a delightful new podcast – The Mindful Kind – and I’ve been working my way through the archive. It’s helping me to keep my focus on mindfulness and to maintain my formal and informal daily mindfulness practice.
I also got to have a really good talk with a group of wise and gentle women to start off my Saturday this morning. Excellent #soul food.
#heart – Tee and I went on our first date since Teddy’s homecoming today! Ice skating and dinner at an Italian restaurant, with Teddy’s aunt and uncle baby-sitting and his four cousins “helping.”
#body – I’ve gone on snowy runs several days this week – trying to get myself back on track with my running game. When I’m running regularly, it really helps me to maintain good balance and to stay in a good headspace.
#mind – I’m taking an online writing course and have been able to carve out a LITTLE time for writing. There could always be more – but I’m happy to be slowly building up this habit.
Life has been pretty overwhelming recently. My professional life is pretty chaotic, and I’m waiting, wishing, hoping, and praying for guidance as to what the next right thing to do is.
I very much want my life to be a genuine reflection of who am. Trying to balance that with making a living is proving a challenge. But Tee and I got to have some good talks about next steps and job possibilities today. So I feel hopeful. Hopeful that maybe something will work out that’s even better than I could have imagined.
