I have been thinking about this thread. I enjoy the name of it 'happy and healthy'--goals I stive to create in my own life.
I have been, as some of you may know, taking 15 credits in graduate school (3 classes and doing my thesis). Such a high volume of work stressed me out at times. I wonder often if I am capeable of doing such work. I keep reminding myself 'I can do this' and 'It's not going to be forever.' I really enjoy the work and all that I am learning, there is just so much is can be overwhelming at times. I am glad I am able to at times gain the support from my friends when I need it.
I have also been in a relationship for about two and a half months. The relationship is a good one, and I am loving growing with the person I am with. However, we entered in the relationship knowing that I will be going to Japan in January. Not just going for a visit, but moving there to live and work for at least a year. I really know not what I want to do. I am loving the relationship, just such distance is going to be hard and I am not sure if this person will be fully commited. Normally, I wouldn't have to decide such a thing so early, and I know I should really enjoy the relationship in there here and now. However, I can't help but know that the time to decide is coming. And I know the person I am with is, like me, scared about our future.
When I get stressed I do sun salutations or moon salutations depending on what time of day it is. It really makes me feel great in a short amount of time.
I just basically wanted to put a little something out here letting you all know what's going on with me and letting you all know that I am thinking about all of you, even though I don't know very much about you guys--though I would like to. I will write again soon.
All my best,
