I woke up this morning feeling a bit anxious. I've had a lot on my mind about ambitions, goals, purpose, and life in general, but I've been so stimulated by all the new people and new things around me that I've been ignoring these things. This morning I think my mind finally demanded I slow down to consider these thoughts. I took the time to sit quietly, then went for a long walk by myself exploring the little town I'm in. I'm an introvert by nature, and I discovered that what I really needed was time alone to nurture my feelings and re-center. No matter what stage of life you're in, be it a really hard time or a really exciting time, or maybe just a seemingly mundane time, you need to continue listening to the voice that tells you what you need day by day.
