Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 343

Today's Daily 5:

  1. a lovely nurse to work with
  2. some great conversations about topics in maternal/child health that really interest me
  3. supper at Ikea (meatballs with gravy and lingonberry sauce - so good, seriously...)
  4. an evening that was productive, doing rearranging, constantly working to make my space more liveable.
  5. settling in at the end of the night to rest

Peaceful Stillness

Yesterday afternoon as I was driving a borrowed car, I paused and realized that for the first time in several months I felt truly at peace.

I worked until 3am Sunday morning, and then crashed at my parents place, sleeping and then enjoying the stillness of an empty house on a sunny Sunday morning.

And so I found myself driving and realized that I felt at rest.

For the first time in a while nothing felt like it was hanging over my head.  I'm slowly settling into my job.  There are minimal deadlines left for this semester of school.  I felt free, still, peaceful, joyful.

It was lovely.
