Sometimes my life is so full and busy that I come to a full stop. It’s like the gears lock up, like an over-wound clock. Yesterday was one of those moments. There are so many good and wondrous things happening, but they all require Action and Mindfulness and Reflection, and I hadn’t given myself permission to go be outside and Just Be for a few minutes.
So I went to bed early, counting check boxes on my To-Do list instead of sheep, and when I woke up this morning I did my best to rattle my brain into shape. Everything will work out, it always does. I guess it is like over-winding a clock or watch, sometimes you just need to shake it a few times and it will start ticking again.
