Quick Breaths

  • Posted on March 26, 2012 at 8:00 AM

I’ve been taking something of a break during this gap between courses.  It’s not that I’ve stopped.  I rarely stop.  If I stop, it’s because I’ve crashed.  But I’m going more slowly, pushing myself less hard.  I’ve noticed, though, that I still hear a lot of people telling me to take it easy.  (What, this isn’t easy?)

It can be a challenge, keeping up.  I don’t mind it, really, except for the paper work, the documentation.  If I could avoid that, I would, so I procrastinate until it’s so urgent it must be done.  Other than that, I like to stay busy.  I like the sense of accomplishment, especially when I know there’s so much more to accomplish.

But when I do slow down, when I remember to breathe, to relax, to enjoy.  I like that, too.  It just doesn’t last and I’m not ready to make that leap that will make it last.  There’s too much to do.

I’ll take this quick breaths, then I’ll plunge back into the fray of too much work and too little play.  What else can I do?
