Tag Archives: feeling stretched

stillness

this week has been quite the whirlwind.

12 hours days of mornings piling into crowded train carts, chilly afternoons meandering through crowds in a cloud covered central park, crazy work days running around the school, long tutoring sessions, and trying to squeeze in a workout here and meeting a friend there. i have been stretched to the brink.

i even realized today that my dry shampoo had been holding me over from a long and overdue shower.

i am feel sick, tired, worn out, and sad.

these weeks are too much, and i have felt a complete lack in any stability or balance. thank god for coffee breaks though…

a mere half hour to sip on warm espresso and steamed milk alone with my thoughts or mulling over life with a friend have been my sanest moments this week.

tonight i had plans to meet up with 3 different people, and i cancelled on all of them. i cancelled for me. for my stillness. my balance. my peace. i said no, and it’s okay.

i went to the gym and watched bravo while jogging on the treadmill. i just showered (thank god) and ordered in delivery. i am putting my feet up on the coffee table, sitting back, watching some reality tv, and calling it a night. this is my stillness. counteracting the messy, grind-through of a week. finding my balance.
