Let's face it, we all need a rest some times, especially from the crummy stuff.
I have been working very hard, at both of my paid jobs and on my personal growth. It has been longer than a month since I gave myself permission to DO nothing. To take a day off for real. Yesterday was an attempt at that day off. But I ended up cooking and doing housework (and thinking way too much) all day instead.
I woke this morning with a sense of urgency. Already abuzz with my wheels spinning, I felt compelled to get right up and make something I forgot to make yesterday. Talk about fixated!
Drive like that doesn't feel good.
And here I am, typing away on my true day off, writing this darned post about respite, when I need one so badly. This is my 5th attempt at writing the “R” post. None of them read how I intended them to read. My venture to guess is because I'm feeling a wee bit fried by this challenge.
What I learned through accepting the A to Z challenge:
~I am already a dedicated writer, whether or not I write daily, at a certain time, or share it or not- there is no contention about my love for writing.
~I must stop this insanity with following rules. It's not my style and when I adhere to these unrealistic “guidelines” I end up frustrated. I am not a linear person. Point taken.
I need a respite from any opinions and judgements.
I need a respite from anxiety and over-exertion.
I need a respite from others' icky moods and fears.
Respite for today:
A healthy brunch followed by a bubble bath!
