Summer Afternoon

Golden rays of light streaming in through delicate, white curtains, I lay out on the faded green sofa, the leather cool underneath my skin
Close my eyes, I listen to the noises of outside, just beyond the walls that separate hardwood floors from green grass and soil
Unaware of all things that are to come, to happen, I let my mind wonder
Where will I go? What will I do? Who will I meet? When will be the next sunshower?
I roll over onto my side, the warm breeze brushes against my body
I drift off into sleep.

All Sorts of Things

It is so unbelievably sunny outside that if my window didn’t shake from the wind (and if I haven’t ventured outside already), I would be easily convinced that it is super warm as well.

I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed this past week. So many deadlines and different things going on that I could’ve easily become really lost without my planner to help me stay on top of everything. Sadly, the week isn’t over for me yet. :(

Also, this morning, I reached a small milestone during my workout and it gave me a significant boost in my confidence. I am making progress! It’s been so difficult getting back into working out 5-6 times a week, but I’m really glad that I started. Initially, I started exercising to get in shape for spring break, but now, I want fitness to be an important part of my life. I also feel a greater sense of urgency about getting a new pair of running shoes. I’ve had mine for 8 years now… and I’m beginning to feel discomfort in my left ankle. Not good at all.

Overall, everything has been such a blur. I feel like I have no time to stop and process things as they happen. Everything has been happening too quickly! I wish I could slow it all down.
