Okay, for starters, that ‘quitting everything’ bit sounds much more dramatic and negative than it’s meant to. In fact, it’s meant to be about LIBERATION!
Before I continue with this post, I would like to acknowledge the fact that me writing a blog just means that there is documented proof on the interweb that I have a completely fickle personality and am constantly fluctuating wildly between being excited and happy, and then all moody and blah blah blah. I am a one-person roller coaster ride. What can I say?
Anyway, to be a bit cynical about myself, I’m sure this latest bout of inspiration will only last for a short amount of time before I revert to my usual demented over-thinking and all that sort of thing. But I’m going for it anyway. You never know; it could stick!
But basically, I’ve decided to just CHILL OUT because, man, I’m really tired of all my mental clutter. So, in the last week or so, I’ve been taking the time to do the things that have always helped me feel more sane and free and real. That has meant sitting on the balcony watching birds and sunsets and clouds. And listening to music. And enjoying silences. And walking slowly and enjoying the scenery. Smelling flowers, breathing deeply, listening to leaves rustling, feeling cool breezes on hot days, going to sleep when I’m tired and getting out of bed when I wake up. Simple stuff. It’s no big deal. It’s just life. It’s nice to take a deep breath for a change and just let go of all the rest.
So, I’m grateful for a few days of mental freedom and clarity. I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts!
