Ahhh I want to go to Singapore so bad!! Even just for a few weeks or a month. I'm hoping to negotiate more vacation time next year... Keeping my fingers crossed for that. I want to go and be able to study with James. I just feel this really deep desire to devote more time to my practice. I feel so torn between my practice and my job. For some reason, it feels like it is hard to get a good balance between the two.
Ideally, I would work part time. 20 - 30 hours a week. Then I could go to practice group everyday and not feel stressed. I go everyday now, but sometimes I feel like I am rushing out to try to get to work at a reasonable time. If possible, I would also take a couple months off every year and go to Singapore or India. It sounds perfect.
Maybe one day I will be able to work something like that out... for now, I will just take life one day at a time :)
