Over the month of January I took a breather from my normal internet life. It being winter, of course more time is spent indoors, but I’ve really felt like I’m fading away into the internet abyss lately. Where are my memories? They’re of websites. Television shows. They’re on unwritten lists of things I want to do, but never have. Perhaps January should have been my fresh start, but it took all of that month to figure everything out. And by “everything,” I mean life in general. There are always things going on, but right now, more than ever. My health. My family. My wellness. My education. Me, me, me. Some say that happiness is overrated – I counter that with a search for stability and well-being. There are things in life that you have control of, and things you don’t. My health and my relationships are mine alone, and I want to keep them strong. I have my studies – productivity is key. I’ll always have family. And to everything else – Why stress yourself out over things you can’t control?
So, I started out February off right. A day off of classes meant finding some summer work, and an evening class of yoga. I also spent an hour talking to two of my bests, which may not always seem important, but I’ve found that surrounding myself with those I care about makes me truly happy. Now, if only they didn’t live so far away…
Not a resolution, but a desire: I’m going to make an effort to do a few minutes of yoga (the sun poses) every morning before starting my day. I’m also going to start writing (on here) more. And lastly, I want to develop my own personal mantra.
Until we meet again.
