I sit and stare out my lofty windows to see a thin layer of wispy clouds traversing the sky and perky white blossoms bobbing amidst nubile little green leaves. Am I uninspired to write today? Or just inspired by something I haven’t yet identified…
It can be difficult to transition from a weekend of leisure and freedom to a week of deadlines and regimented productivity, and yet we often have to force ourselves to do so. What I’d really like right now is to meet a friend for a hot cup of something at a cozy corner café, talk about whatever moves us, and watch the world go by outside ~ knowing we will eventually catch up with it.
Some people understand – and accept – the rhythms of our lives, flowing with them faithfully and managing not to freak out. I’m still learning to hold on loosely to my own expectations, learning to trust my own moods and follow where they lead. But getting a slow start when we feel we should be hitting the pavement running always causes a little bit of angst in me where the shin splints should be.
So I’m having a philosophical Monday morning so far… things always level out somehow. I’ll probably be making major headway on my projects this afternoon, making up for my laissez-faire morning two or three-fold. And I will eventually get back to that feeling of productivity that makes me so proud and appeases the do-gooder in me. But for now – no sense staring at a bunch of foreign symbols that I can’t compute when there are dishes in the sink that, frankly, seem much more appealing at the moment.
