Relax. This is not forever. It is a mere period in life that will soon become the past. Preparation takes time and the days have grown short with impatience. Enjoy what is still had for years before have shown you not to take anything for granted. Believe it or not, someday this too will be missed. Take a deep breath, release, and stretch your body as far as possible. Getting irritated and frustrated will only cause for more unpleasantness and you already know that it’s not worth it. Let it slide off your shoulders like the heavy burden was nothing but a passing breeze. Take it all in, remember your purpose and keep a steady eye on your goal. Focus. Tomorrow is today as today is yesterday. Don’t lose touch.
