Finding beauty

Sometimes beauty is as close as your own home. You dont always have to go out somewhere to search for the things that may be right outside your door. All you have to do is open your eyes and look.

Taking time

Today I took a walk with my 4 year old son on a local walking track. Normally when I go I do two laps around at a quick pace. Walking with a 4 year old you cant do that….they want to explore and ask questions about  and look at things that adults normally bypass as we rush around our busy lives. In slowing down and looking at the natural beauty that was around me I was able to appreciate more just where I was and to really take in how pretty of a scene it is. I hope you enjoy this view of my walk as much as I enjoyed taking it.

What to do, what to do….

I have spent the last 4 months (roughly) in my first semester of nursing school. It’s been an enlightening, frustrating, mind numbing, sleepless nights, hours of studying and feeling like I disnt understand what was going on or what I was doing experience.  Now here I sit mere hours after my last final trying to figure out just what exactly I’m going to do with my life for the next 3 weeks. I’m discovering that as much as I disliked my books they became a part of me. I guess now I can spend time taking walks and trying to loose some of this extra weight I’ve gained. As much as I looked forward to this break I’m now offically ready for it to be over.
