Brown-eyed Stare

Today's Daily Om: Effort and Understanding

Life lately has been rather challenging for me - but I'm grateful for an
excellent weekend that has renewed my spirits. It wasn't entirely free
from challenges, but the warm closeness and hope I'm feeling from this
weekend (and the fact that I was able to resolve -- or help resolve --
the difficulties that did arise) has helped me, and I'm glad. It's been
important for me to rest and regroup and reconnect, because there are
more challenges ahead, but I'm feeling more confident and much less
afraid. It's clear to me that I need to make more time to rest, have
fun and regroup when things get stressful (and connect with people,
either in person or via correspondence; recreation = re-creation of me);
doing that this weekend has given me new energy and hope. I'll write
more about this weekend later; for now I'll just say it was *good*. I'm
tired, but I had a lot of fun, and am smiling now.

It's nice to get to work on a Monday morning and feel good about being

Have a good day, all. :-)
