Holding Pattern

Sometimes after a period of extremely intense activity...we find it very difficult to slow down. I have been very carefully trying to slow down my pace since WEG, but far too often find myself revving my engine (spinning my wheels?!).

School is done, done done. I can hardly believe it. In some ways, it was a 3 and a half year journey, but I also think of it as the completion of a journey I started in 2001 when I originally started graduate school at UCLA...so really a ten year journey!!

Part of me feels like I should take time to stop and reflect about the journey I have been on in the past years. However, there is this little inner-cheerleader reminding me that there are so many exciting paths ahead...why slow down now to sniff the flowers, when there might be bigger, smellier flowers up ahead?!

I am admittedly anxious to get my business started, and find a new routine. I think the hardest part about this time "in between" adventures is not having daily obligations!!

I very much look forward to finding my path to the London Paralympics. But...rather than running down the trail, I instead hope to take my time. Allow the process to happen organically. Nurture the relationships, enjoy each moment. I will push when I need to push, but take deep breaths and make sure each decision is coming from the heart.
