now matters

January 22, 2011

today counts, too!
i’m all for vacation anticipation, but i have to watch myself sometimes. because while planning and taking a little time out of each day to daydream about the upcoming relaxation and fun is a known happiness booster, treating your life like a countdown is bad.

after all, just because THIS is lurking in my future:

(oh, and a little of this, too)

. . . doesn’t mean that TODAY is disposable or any less important.

not glamorous or exciting, but it’s happening NOW!
and there is still plenty of peace and fun to find in today (yes, even on call). there are still books to be read, a workout to energize, loved ones to catch up with, new music to be enjoyed . . .

can’t wait to get to know this new album!
and maybe rounds + a few diabetes calls to answer along the way — and that’s fine, too. i plan to enjoy my weekend – after all, the quiet and mundane can be wonderful in its own way. finally, a good bathroom-cleaning session will make me really feel i’ve EARNED that massage when the time comes.

just a little link love
for your weekend . . .

♥ the latest study hacks post certainly brought back pre-med memories!

♥ i’m kind of obsessed with the edible perspective lately. another blog i would put in the “how was i not reading this before!?” category.

    Sure I know Mansoura. Beautiful village. I went to high school in Jib-Jannine and so have to go through Mansoura every weekend. Some of my classmates were from Mansoura. My favorite Arabic Literature teacher from Aana.
