Hi it’s me hiding behind a leaf. 👋🏻🍁 So I’ve been a little absent lately because... well, life mostly. The past two months have felt like I jumped on a high speed train and then tried to use a stick to get it to slow down but the stick kept breaking and eventually I just gave in. Every other month I tell myself I’ll figure out a way to slow down - to learn to meditate, to taste my food, to actually have a rest day...
but the next deadlines keep coming and the next event keeps happening...
I’m going to keep trying though. In this world, it’s easier to be busy than it is to be bored. I’m learning how to be purposeful in saying no to things and not feeling guilty about having a day off. I don’t want to answer the question, “how are you?” with the standard response of, “oh you know, staying busy”.
With all that being said, if you are still reading this, I have some cool things happening in my life, some of which will hopefully help me move towards a slower state of life (talk about burying the lead). I accepted a new position at a new company, we bought a house and are moving this week (omg WAT is life), I’m wrapping up my 2018 freelance work and plan to take on a lot less paid work next year (back to that saying no thing) and focus more on the work that feeds my soul more so than my mouth. Okay, ugh, that’s enough for now. Go to bed.
