Time Flies

I honestly cannot believe how quickly time flies by. I have just completed my first three week placement in a surgical ward, and today I start my next three week stint in a medical ward. This is a huge turning point in the semester as we are already getting close to halfway through!

I knew that this year would go by quickly, but I never dreamed it would go this fast! It has been amazing learning and growing and being challenged so much along the way.

Finding peace in the midst of chaos is one of the foundational concepts in yoga practice. I guess that is one of the things that I appreciate the most with doing yoga is that you learn how to really be calm when everything else is flying past you and swirling around. At first I was struggling with this concept at the beginning of the semester, but now I feel like I am finally getting a grip on it.

I am still running and swimming and I started lifting weights again, but I am definitely allowing myself some grace with that and not planning to run as far of distances and push myself beyond what I can do in this moment. I am extremely limited for time, so I have decided that something is better than nothing and I am going for shorter, more intense workouts these days.

Overall it has been a fabulous year and I am really excited to see what the future holds in the next few months.
