What You are Seeking is Seeking You -Rumi

Yesterday, my entire family was sick with flu-like symptoms.  So I brought home some tea bags, cans of soup, medicine, good smelling wax (to take out the sick smell of the house), ginger-ale, and other cleaning supplies (again, to get the sick out of the house).  I have been the only one in the family who hasn’t been sick.  Jack pointed this out to me yesterday and I said it was because I have been practicing yoga regularly.  I really think it’s true.  It is so good for our immune system.  We will see.  I could also just be a late-bloomer.

I am seriously struggling with grad school “senioritis”.  I realized this about myself and realized that it has also been causing me a lot of unnecessary stress.  Instead of focusing on the current semester at hand, I have been anxious about what happens after grad school.  Where should I apply to work? Are we moving?  How are finances going to come into play?  What do I really want to do with my MSW degree that will both feed the family and fulfill my soul?  Umm…so…I have finally realized that that is a lot of pressure I am putting on myself! Maybe if I actually apply what I know to be true such as: counting my current blessings, taking care of the present moment, experiencing graditude, meditating, doing the best I can with what I have right now, and trusting in the Universe that “What I am seeking is seeking me”, I will be a lot better off. 

 

So, that is the mind-set that I am attempting to cultivate.
