The Stars in Emerson's Eyes

"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence. Nature never wears a mean appearance. 

Neither does the wisest man extort her secret, and lose his curiosity by finding out all her perfection. Nature never became a toy to a wise spirit. The flowers, the animals, the mountains, reflected the wisdom of his best hour, as much as they had delighted the simplicity of his childhood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do you have trouble 
sleeping at night?
This video is designed
 to help you fall into
a deep sleep. 

 Just close your eyes,

clear your mind, 
turn the video on,

get comfortable, 
in your best sleeping 
spot, and just relax. 
Close your eyes,
just take a deep breath,
let all your troubles 
from the day
wash away with the 
sound of the rain.
The rain will refresh your spirit, 
restore your energy. Complete
relaxation and comfort.
Just free your mind
 of any tension, 
just let go.

After all is said and done

After today, I just feel like a good cry. Sometimes I just can't handle all the emotional stress from being a nurse. I am a person too. Sometimes no words can express the stress endured on the job. I just could cry. And more...

The Art of Letting Go

Sometimes when we have expectations that are not met, 
our heart needs some time to mend.
In these moments, it is a good time
to learn the art of letting go.
Much easier to say than do.
Time is a friend in the process.
Living in the present is all we really have.

Tuesday nite

Just thought I'd sit down and write a line or two with what's happening in my life at present. I will have one of my last clinicals for the Spring in the NP program at Cal State Fullerton, before the summer is here. It's been the hardest semester so far, with a couple of weeks in April with two full clinical days. At the same time, I am working full-time (3 days a week), as an RN on a telemetry floor, at a local hospital. I'm really looking forward to summer because I will have more free time. I have enjoyed the program immensely. I always love to learn and try new things. 
Mother's day is fast approaching and I will soon have visitors for at least a few days in May. Then there is always the June RocknRoll marathon in San Diego. I actually decided to try and do the half marathon. I will be happy just to participate. With this and more on my plate, life is certainly never dull. I try to stay active but remember to take time to de-stress. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday 
and lovely Mother's Day weekend! 
Dreaming of summer...

SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE...OR ALMOST

For the mesmerizing days of summer long awaited. 
Summer brings back memories of long lazy days 
lounging in the sun on the beach with family and friends. 
This summer I hope it will be no different. 
Just to linger a little longer in the glowing warmth of the sun
 is all I look forward to. To dream, relax and play all day. 
I can't wait! 
How about you?
