I’m getting a little scatterbrained because I have to do too much. Too much.
I don’t think that humans were meant to run themselves into the ground. Aren’t we supposed to take a break? Even when we take breaks, it’s still doing a lot – siteseeing on vacations, running from plane to plane, high-adrenaline fist-pumping adventures.
I’m learning to say no. I’m learning to say stop. As much as I enjoy teaching, I need time for my own practice. There’s nothing wrong with being “selfish” because in actuality, I’m just listening to what would make me not only feel better, but be better.
I want to spend more time with my dogs. I want to be a better employee at my other job. I want more time to sit down, write and reflect. I want time to breathe.
