For all my exhortations about being light (lightening up, letting your heart be light, etc., etc., etc.) I found myself in a bit of a funk this week.
I may be coming to a “come to Jesus” moment about my level of busy-ness in life. When 12 hours go by and you realize you haven’t stopped to go to the bathroom, it’s too much.
This, by the way, is no one’s fault but my own.
Trying to keep all the balls in the air when juggling can be an amazing skill, but the downside is you never get to enjoy crossing one project off of your to-do list, because you’ve got to quickly move to the next one before it comes crashing to the ground.
That’s not living. It’s a hamster wheel that never stops. And I’m not a hamster. (Though I’ve been acting like one.)
Oh, I have been trying to squeeze fun in here and there, but my phone remains tethered to my arm and I have been less than present in my human interactions.
Add to the mix some health challenges (like eyes that are still blurry – and much of what I do all day is read, write and proof things!) The internet is and endless pit of diagnoses, non of which make my heart LIGHT.
As I write this I am on another airplane, this time headed to a girlfriends weekend in Charlotte, NC. While my friends have excitedly texted each other about what they are packing and what we’re going to do while together, I’ve been AWOL, sucked into the vortex of too many irons in the fire.
My plan of action? To seek their wisdom this weekend. This Fab Four (me and Renee, Anita and Cynthia) are some of the best sounding boards a person could have. They are kind, honest, loving, funny and want the best for me. I am going to sink into the comfort that they provide and believe for some clarity this weekend (in between or during shopping excursions and karaoke.)
Perhaps that is part of the reason why, when recording this week’s WOW I had the word WISDOM on my mind instead of LIGHT. (And yes, I did also enjoy a rousing ‘put your foot in your mouth’ episode that also prompted this week’s parting message.)
WOW! And boy do I need me some power. How about you?
Power. Love. A Sound Mind.
