Now that I’m feeling like myself again, it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day.
So many hobbies, so little time.
I want to read and knit and write and learn. I want to organize my desk and decorate for fall. I want to photograph and craft.
I’m better when I’m busy, but it’s easier being busy when I’m better.
When I was low, the hours felt long and empty. I was lonely, unsatisfied with my own company. I fell into the social media trap of comparing my life with the digital versions of others’ lives.
I tried to get busy, but nothing held my attention long enough or well enough to fill the emptiness.
But I persisted, and slowly, through yoga and meditation and many long walks on the beach, I began to heal. Through words spoken, written, and read, I found my way back to myself.
I once heard that you can’t sit around waiting for motivation to strike, you have to just begin and the motivation will come.
So I got busy, and I found my motivation to get busy again.
Currently reading: Supernatural by Dr Joe Dispenza (almost done!).
Today I’m grateful for crisp fall mornings, the changing colours, and fuzzy warm pjs.
