despite the items i’ve listed, very few things are knocked off my list. how does that happen? we do, and do, and do, yet our lists stay long. sound familiar? even most of my MITs (most important tasks) are still pending which are usually my priorities. hmmmm, playing catch up after being away for 12 days plus holly day time is probably the culprit. proud of myself for inserting the play dates with le beau AND the lovely hope, but need more gym, yoga, and meditation time, too. et toi?

when you look at your week, how do you see it spent? does it reflect your values? during my art journaling time earlier this week i began highlighting some of 2010 and noting dreams of 2011. not to get ahead of myself (still one month left!), but i always find this process insightful. many lessons learned. many memories. lots of forced slowing down (a la surgeries) plus forced outside comfort zone (a la internship). all good things.

indeed life is all about balance and there is much to juggle. you know it as well as i do. i feel grateful for the opportunity to tackle this continuous challenge. and to have you by my side. may mOMents of tranquility infuse our journey.
