I am pondering several little things in my life…
I have been in a growth-0riented relationship for about a year now (Wow! right?). Growth-oriented because Stephanie (my partner) is a strong woman who is thankfully able to assert her needs and desires. It has been very pleasant at times and occasionally trying. But overall I am very happy to be in this relationship. It will get better and it is getting easier each day. So there are stresses but they are mostly positive. I just have to remember to take (or make) time for myself in my (and our) busy schedule of life.
Also, on a separate note. I wonder about learning about history. I am presently reading a great book entitled “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” It is fantastic and it is helping to open my mind to the horrors and beauty of people’s lives who lived under the occupation of German soldiers during World War II. I am starting to wonder about maturing. In the past, I avoided learning about our planet’s tragic history (unless it involved China or Tibet). But now I wonder if another level of maturity involves learning about people’s plight in the world – in little, doable doses of course. It is a great book by the way – did I mention that? 🙂
At present, I am taking classes in Anatomy and Physiology at the local community college and I am working full time. That and the relationship I mentioned and my life is full. Very full.
Oh – and I am applying to nursing school. Whoa!?! Wish me luck!
