I'm up late tonight...it's almost 1am and I still feel like I'm full steam ahead. If you know me well, you know this is unusual as I prefer going to bed by 10pm and waking up at 5:30am, since my brain operates more clearly in the morning hours.

I'm not sure if it's because I have a lot on my mind...school work (finished an assignment due Wednesday), job search (trying to find something more interesting and more full-time), processing of recent events, or keeping up to date on my friends and familys' lives via social media sites. I'm in need of sleep because I've been up since 6am today and have a busy day tomorrow with the alarm set for 5:30am and a list of tasks as long as ever.

Maybe I'm awake because I just need time to be...to listen to my favorite Pandora station, smell the scent of my favorite candle, reflect on the recent past and daydream about the near future. Without times like this to be in the present and contemplate where I am and what I'm doing, I would be rushing and spinning through life without a clear purpose. So I think I'll sit here in my room, for as long as it takes and just be (but secretly hoping that sleep comes sooner than later so that I can survive tomorrow :)

it does not mean to be in a place 
where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. 
it means to be in the midst of those 
things and still be calm in your heart.
