I haven't been writing for awhile, but I'm not feeling my best today, so I've decided to do some reflection on how the past few weeks have been. Right now though, my heart feels heavy. I feel exhausted. My mind feels foggy and I don't have much energy to do anything, really. 2.5 years in a long-distance relationship can really wear you down. I feel like I have nothing left to give to anyone new. I feel like I'm in a car set to drive cross-country on a near-empty tank. I am so tired. Mentally and emotionally exhausted. Just last night, I felt like I wanted to bury myself in a hole and just sleep there forever (or at least until September ends). I really need some peace and quiet. I wish I could stay with some Buddhist monks in a temple at the top of a mountain in Mongolia for awhile. Just be in an environment where I can just Be, with no one bothering me. Just me, being present with the world around me. I feel like I need some spaciousness and vastness to rest my soul and my spirit before things get hectic again.
