The last couple of weeks have been awesome.
I’ve gotten to do some fun new things, I’ve been given some cool opportunities, I’ve been insanely busy and I have been all over it.
I’ve been productive and happy amidst writing papers, planning international trips, attending meetings, responding to emails, getting the kids to their activities, and so on and on and on…
And while all of this activity has been whirling around me and while I’ve managed it with positivity and energy, in the back of my mind there’s been something off in the distance, waiting to make its way to the forefront.
A cliff, just waiting there for me to walk over the edge.
I’m not going to do it by choice, but it’s going to happen all the same. I’ll keep moving along through my day to day, thinking things are going great until one day I’ll wake up and find myself lying at the base of the cliff wondering what the hell happened.
This all sounds very negative, and I know that I should enjoy the good while it’s going on. I have been for the most part, but every now and then that self awareness kicks in and reminds me that I need to take care of myself; get sleep, eat right, try to stay organized as much as possible.
Because after a long stretch of steady ground, I think I might feel some rocks starting to slide.
