I know the title sounds like an excuse but it is not meant to be. I am a relatively busy person and for over a year I have managed a very tight schedule. The last few weeks I have crammed even more into that tight schedule and last night I realized just how tight my schedule has become.
My normal schedule is something like: up at 4:20am to be at the gym by 5am. I am at the pool by 6am and at work from 7:30am to 2:35pm. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I teach at class at the local university from 3 to 4pm and again from 5:30pm to 6:45pm. I then return to the gym for a repeat performance and arrive home sometime around 8pm to eat, get ready for the following day, play with the dogs and reitre by 9:30pm
In the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to apply to an OPA program in San Diego, California and so I have added an observation at a physical therapist on Tues., Thurs., and Friday evenings. I think I have met myself coming and going on several occassions! Last night, on the drive home, it was not dark yet. Yes, I had a little extra time and it dawned on me that I am missing out.
One of my favorite things in the world is a good sunset and in the last several weeks (perhaps months) I have not seen one! I usually use a good sunset for quiet reflective time. Sunsets provide me with "ME" time and they are my own personal "MeTube", not "YouTube" but close, only better! The sunset last night was superb!
I stopped the truck, climbed a little hill and sat down and enjoyed MeTube to the fullest. I felt so calm and fulfilled. I needed this time very badly and I have vowed that I will arrange my schedule to allow me to indulge in this endeavor more frequently. I hope you enjoy the following pictures as much as I enjoyed the real thing.
AAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, I feel so much better. Remember while you are feeding and exercising the body to reach it's greatest potential that you must allow for the brain to do the same. Whatever it is that trips your trigger or butters your bread, make time to participate. Life is just too short. Please don't be TOO busy!
