Putting things into perspective...

There are days when I look at my life and wonder how things have come together they way they have. Since last year, every time I think I'm stuck in a mental or emotional rut, something happens to pu ll me out of it. Now, I do take credit for finally making decisions for myself and not always others. It was about time and I'm glad I did so. It doesn't make the next decsion any easier, it just reminds me that everything will work out in the end.

Things are pretty crazy right now. With six classes, I am amazed that I haven't totally lost my mind yet! In any case, I really love my classes... I just wish there weren't as many assignments. But don't worry, I'm not that naive. just a little bit of wishful thinking.

Right now I am in the middle of packing. I am going to Kelowna with my boyfriend to spend Thanksgiving with his family. I am really excited; I love spending time with his family.Just have to impress the grandparents whom I'll be meeting for the first time.

This weekend will be good for me. I eally need to get away and refocus. I feel like something in my life is slipping at the moment, and I'm not sure what it is. I need some time to just enjoy 'being'. It is such a simple thing, but often overlooked and forgotten. I need to remember that I can't help other people if I don't first help myself.

On the side of my hard drive is an area I have devoted to my magnetic poetry. It allows me to be creative even when I'm not entirely sure I can be at that moment. Currently this is what's up there:
close my eyes to dream

tomorrow whispers to me
reminds me of
the universe without limitations
a journey with unclear definitions

the truth walks in circles

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Remember to take a moment to breath deep and 'just be'.
