Missing for a while...and feeling absent

It seems that I have lost the balance in my life lately. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only educator to feel this way, but I am tired and haven't the energy lately to do it all AND do my journaling. Mostly because I can't focus. When I get home from work, in the dark, I can't switch gears and be mindful of my peace. I only feel the adrenalin letdown. So, thank you for continuing to visit and share in my little corner of this busy world. 
Today, I toughened up, pushed through my own fatigue, and promised myself that no matter what, I would apply glue to the pieces of paper that had been speaking to me, arranging them with the love and light I wanted so badly to express once again. And I wrote words from a favorite song from the Avett Brothers that I sang to early this morning, on my dark drive to work. If I can't see daylight, I can sing it and I can create it in my journal.

I may not be an educator but I know exactly what you're talking about when you say you feel absent. I've felt that way for so long that I finally just decided to MAKE myself do the "work" and it's helping.

Sending you much...
Peace & Love,
Barb

I understand. My mind is so stuffed that I can't do much of anything. I cannot art, and I cannot even write. Good luck to you, and God bless.

I admire your honesty my friend. You are very wise to honor your feelings and realize you cannot do it all all the time. Hopefully you felt better while doing your journal page that is wonderful. Sharing Blessings and Peace...
