I love blogging

I love blogging. I like to pour thoughts and ideas out on the page. I love to be creative. I love reading what other people write. Alas, blogging takes a lot of time.

Lately, I find little time to blog the way I like. I dash off a post in 5 minutes so everyone will know I'm ok but I just have not found the time to really reflect as I write or to stop and read many other blogs. Fortunately, a positive change is in sight. This is my last week of teaching until August, so I will have a nice break to blog, refashion and pursue other artistic visions.

I am really excited to have time to dedicate myself to the things I love most. I will still be teaching my yoga classes and I am already signed up to sub a few times too.

My regular job search continues but I have accepted the idea of continuing to work at my current school. There are still prospects on the horizon but I am settling my mind into a state where I can accept whatever comes.

I have realized that my priorities lie in creating time to do the things I love most. I continue to push away obligations and thoughts that bring me stress and to try to find a balance in all things. This seems to be paying off healthwise. I am in the midst of one of the least trying menstrual periods of my adult life ( I know TMI but I have a point). Usually, I feel awful physically and emotionally for about one week out of the month but this time I am feeling pretty decent. Even my napping has changed lately. I still find I want a nap most days but now instead of needing over 2 hours, I nap 45 minutes or an hour and then I am refreshed. I am relieved to be feeling so much better these days. I think that summer break will reduce my stress even further and that I will continue to feel better and better. I can hardly wait!

P.S. I will be by your blog soon :)

This is a very nice post. Thank you from one who enjoys blogging, also. Joseph from .


I know I'VE got nowhere to go, so I suspect I'll still be around once you are baaaaaaack!

Glad to hear things are feeling more settled and energized.

Thanks for sharing, Denver. I could relate to the length of nap gauge for how I'm feeling. I even have some NO nap days now, but I'm thrilled when I can keep them under an hour. I know that I need to scale back on activities when I set my cell phone alarm for 30 mutes and snooze for 3 hours!
I'm glad you will have more time to do what you love this summer.

You must put yourself first sometimes. You are dealing with a lot. BlogLand is not going anywhere. My new assisted living establishment has a weekly yoga class, ALLL levels. Really cool.

This made me think of Scarlett O'Hara, "I shall think of it tomorrow." Glad you are going to have time to do what you enjoy and I hope you, like myself, get to catch up on all these blogs...
