take a moment

today i looked up from my journal articles and just said,
oh my brain!
how many consecutive hours can one study. throw into the mix all the details of managing a life in flux and you've got a lot of minutia. i am trying not to get bogged down in it all, and trusting it will be well, but at some point, and my point was about 10:30 this morning, I had to stop, step away from the reading, and take moment. that was an hour before i delved into a three hour intensive i'm teaching. at least the intensive requires other parts of my brain and attention than what the studying does.
it is easy to get overwhelmed when there are so many things happening at once. i am choosing to take care of myself the best i can and trust that it will all work out. if i can move a three bedroom home and family from the southwest to new england in ten days, then i got this. i have to remember, i have resources i have not yet tapped.
so, when my presentation is due next week, it will be ready. when my paper is due this weekend, it will be ready. when my two additional posts are due thursday, i will have something to write. it is all coming together. it is all good. and i'm nearly done with the semester. just five more weeks to go.
what a relief.
