Time just flies….at least that is how it feels to me! I’m working on so many different projects and for some reason I am sitting here just thinking…wow time flies! But you know one of the best thing someone ever told me was that time is going to fly by regardless of what you are doing….so why not let time fly by and you complete a doctorate degree in the process. It sounded….so cool at the time…now I’m realizing yes it is cool but it is also…..very tiring!
I was up until 2a.m. this morning…waiting for sleep to come…and partially because I took a late late nap. For some reason yesterday I got home and my stomach hurt so bad (nausea ..thanks Arava) and I just needed sleep. I got about 3 hours or so and then I managed to get up and work on some papers. I am sooo happy that today I am off work!! YAY!! It was a surprising day off…and one I am taking full advantage of! I slept in until about 8:00a.m., took a shower, got ready for the day and now I’m working on editing my homework. But yet time seems to still be going by me soo fast!
While I was getting ready this morning I could not help but think about how slow I go now with my Rheumatoid Arthritis. My hands do not work as well as they used to and I just do not have the same energy level. I was thinking back to when I was a kid and I could run around and do things. I would pay major money to wake up with energy. Most days I wake up and I feel as empty on my energy level as when I went to bed! Ugh…thanks RA and Fibromylagia! Ya’ll are soooo not fun!
So if time feels like it is running by you…know you are not alone! 🙂 I hope that this week…despite how fast it seems like time is flying by …that we stop and appreciate the good things. The good people that encourage us….the friends that stop and check on us…and the encouragement we receive by the many on our social media sites! I know I’m thankful for the people that check on me…that encourage me…and that stay connected to me.
