I’ve heard this quote my whole life and I admit I’ve been frustrated with people who I perceived as having all the time in the world to do things just simply not getting anything done.
So imagine my surprise at myself when I suddenly find myself unemployed (on purpose!) with time on my hands and unable to complete simple tasks like calling a friend. My days are filled with sleeping in, going for long walks, yoga and lots of reading. It’s exhausting and I’m overwhelmed (please note the sarcasm).
I’ve also found I’m not as creative when I’m not busy. My most creative days were in the spring of 2015 in the midst of grad school, conference planning and two overseas trips. I was also only sleeping about 5 hours a day and I do not want to get back to that!
I’m totally frustrated with myself. I have 25 days left until I leave for Morocco with tons of things on my ToDo List and no motivation to get them done. I know I’ll get to everything I have to, just not right now. I think I need a nap. And Holly I promise I’ll call you!
