I can really do this!

I'm a graduate student (final stages of PhD), a teacher, and a lover of beaches, books and sunsets. Always busy, I have been finding that consistent exercise also functions as "me" time.

I'm a graduate student (final stages of PhD), a teacher, and a lover of beaches, books and sunsets. Always busy, I have been finding that consistent exercise also functions as "me" time. I need to be better about not letting myself off the hook. While I may not want to go out for that run, I *never* come back regretting that I exercised.

I'm a work in progress. I struggle with insomnia, anxiety, and stress. I'm working on the idea that food is much more useful as fuel (and offers much less in the way of emotional salve) than I've previously accepted. One goal of this journey is to be present and aware, as well as to be kind to myself. This is a daily struggle, but one that seems to get easier with practice.

I think the longer we do this, the harder it is, not easier. Hard to dig deep and find new motivation. Diogenes, lend me your lamp.
