You know how sometimes you're so proud you've been on top of things and the next day you realize you haven't been?
That's what it feels like today.
I've been so proud of myself for being "productive" and "consistent" that I totally forgot there's always another side to the coin:
Basically, I've been dedicating all of my time to work.
There have been no moments for walking aimlessly or reading a book or talking to friends.(I've only been allowing myself time to watch Bones but that's the kind of mindless break I need when I'm exhausted not the invigorated kind that I take when I'm healthy). I've been so focused on the work - because I actually enjoy it - that I have almost driven myself to that burnout moment again.
We don't want that! That's the worst moment!!!
I also feel grateful to my subconscious that it hinted in no uncertain terms last night that I needed a break with this dream of me going to a place where there were no people, and it was so... untouched, so peaceful. For a few minutes I stood in total peace and quiet and I could finally BREATHE.
As if that wasn't enough of a slap in the face, my email brought me the latest workshop via Caroline and Jason Zook called - Working to LIVE, in which they made me prioritize my free time and basically, my life.
Because we're doing this whole creative business thing for the freedom!
And what kind of freedom is it if you have zero time to rest?
Today I feel sheepish because I have not let myself rest. If you've been doing that also, just sign up for Caroline's or Jason's newsletters and follow what they're doing. They'll remind you what really matters.
And come talk to me on twitter, maybe we can rest together.
Thanks for following my ramblings. :)
