No Day Is Too Busy

When life gets busy, like this present moment when my schedule is imploding upon itself at the end of the semester, I like to take bits and corners of time -- a minute here, a moment there -- and daydream about the many things I'm looking forward to.  Things like organizing all the closets in my house, or painting the dining room, or sweeping the garage, or otherwise bringing order to my surroundings.

I've got blog posts in my head that can't wait to be written, and craft ideas that can't wait to be crafted, and projects that can't wait to be started, and books that can't wait to be read.

I'm chomping at the bit to care for the areas in my life that have been feeling a bit neglected.

Of course, I can't start any of these outside projects quite yet.  Until I upload my final grades next week, it's all about focus.  Must.  Press.  On.

But what I can do in the interim is to enjoy those daydreams and soak in the fact that spring, finally, is springing.  No day is too busy, after all, to pause for a moment and enjoy what's in front of you right now.

    Feeling EXACTLY the same way today. And this semester is my last, so it's bittersweet. Moving on to new and exciting (and still unknown) things! Good luck Robin!
