With summer winding down, I feel like I am entering the last leg of a marathon. The finish line is within my reach now, except that I still have the hardest miles to go before I reach my destination.
In two weeks I will be back in school and pushing towards my goal of having my master’s degree by next fall. After a relatively calm summer, my job is going to be extremely busy again, I have to present at an international conference, my daughter will be moving, and my dad’s surgery is just around the corner.
I’ve never been one to handle anticipatory anxiety very well, and this time is no exception. I can be quite the worrier when it comes to the future. The good news is that I just read an article in the Huffington Post about a research study that actually found worrying to be a sign of intelligence. I must be brilliant. Well, that is except for my tendency to worry about things like whether I offended someone or said something wrong at a social gathering, then it might be a sign of less intelligence. I’m not sure if I am guilty of the actual offense or the worry in this case, but I don’t have time to worry about that right now.My real reason for writing this post is that I am also fretting about how I will be able to keep up with my blog when I am so busy. Not to mention that I really enjoy connecting with all the wonderful bloggers out there, and I am hoping I can still make time to do that.
I started this blog a few years ago but didn’t really get going with it until the past year. It started out as more of a SLOG and then became a blog.
Hopefully I’m won’t go back to slogging and can continue blogging. Who knows, maybe it will keep me from worrying so much.
