I didn’t speak with a single person today. I turned off my phone, turned off the computer and spent my time meditating, practicing my guitar, practicing my piano, studying, cleaning my house, playing with my puppy, organizing and cooking. It was divine. It was a full day, but everything was done at my own pace. I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy my alone time, because I am seldom alone. I consider it a great luxury.
John is in San Francisco going into the first round of rehearsals for his new play, which will open in June. He is so excited, and I’m excited and happy for him. He has worked very hard to get this far.
I am nearing the end of my training to be an integrative wellness and life coach. This certification will go along with my masters degree in Psychology, and boost my marketability with my new company. It has been hard work, draining at times, and I have had to get up at 3-4 a.m. to do my job. I have really been burning the candle at both ends!
Burning the candle at both ends can be grueling, but it can be so satisfying if one is doing what he or she wants to be doing…and this is the case with me. I have a higher goal, so the temporary inconvenience of working long hours and staying up late will pay off in the end. It feels so great to be married to someone as busy as I. We have a lot to share with one another, and I am very grateful for this.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a snow day, which means I will have Ingrid all day long, if school is cancelled. I look forward to that, but if she doesn’t come, I will have another day to myself to appreciate and enjoy.
I apologize for not keeping my readers more entertained with this blog lately. I’ll be back to my regular posts once I complete my certification training.
Ciao for now. xoxo
