Adjusting - 5 Minute Free Write


5 minutes of free writing,  stream of consciousness, a trend I've noticed in the blogosphere. I've been tempted to take part and since my blogging schedule is in need of a jump start, why not? I've been living in Maryland for the last 4 months and it's not been an easy transition. My husband loves his new job and we are getting used to the location just fine. The hard part is being so far from my friends and family and the day to day life that I was used to. I knew it would take some adjusting but I didn't expect it to be as hard as it's been. Without going into too much detail, I've had some anxiety issues get stronger recently. I'm most happy when I'm around other people relaxing, but during the day I don't have that luxury. (Unless I start making friends with random people in coffee shops, but that anxiety is sometimes social anxiety so that's not going to happen.) So I tend to walk down to one of the many public shoreline parks in my neighborhood and meditate. It's not always easy but sometimes it really lifts my mood. Well it looks like the 5 minutes are already up, I hope that little slice of my life did not get you down. Things will be okay eventually, I know that, but if you've been wondering where I've been, that's where. Thanks for sticking around, writing makes me feel good so I do want to get back into it here. Maybe I'll do more of these...
