I woke up at 7:30am and did some work on "Ragtime" this morning, then I went back to bed around 10:30am and slept for several hours. I had big plans for today but then, after feeling guilty and beating myself up about not doing all the things I need to do, I realized that today is really my only day off for a while. Unfortunately, I didn't come to this acceptance until about 7:30pm tonight, so I really kind of ruined a perfectly good day off. Disappointing, but at least I was able to salvage the evening.
The next few weeks may present themselves in rocky ways, but I am doing some things that sustain me - work-wise. Now, I just need to be sure that I carve out the personal time that sustains me. I haven't really paid that much attention to that until the last couple of years. I'm still digging out from the work-blizzard I allowed myself to stand under for so many years. Don't get me wrong - work got me through some pretty tough times, but it is so much easier to just find shelter than to get buried and have to dig out eventually.
I have so much I want to do and experience and I just need to keep reminding myself to follow through. Forgetting is too easy and it doesn't help anything.
So, those are my thoughts on this lazy Sunday.
