I have so much jam, I should start bottling and giving it away! So much to be grateful for...sometimes I just need a reminder. I have my more than un-jammy share of ickyness...just finished a role which took a lot out of me physically and emotionally. I feel like I am still recovering from it. Monumental fatigue like I have never known before. An achy heart, a few dead grey cells. That sort of thing. But all in all, really, some perspective and I circle back to sticky, sugary, goodness.
A friend from Denver said that she likes to take breaks (mini vacations) as it gives her pause from the mundane and her mind then has the ability to be less transactional. I took that to heart and just spent a weekend doing nothing in Penang. Woke up thinking about someone at work who I don't like, lay in bed adjusting tasks on a project plan, over breakfast I thought about how to pack all my books when I move...but pre-noon, my mind had exhausted itself of the tedium and starting thinking about (wait for it....here it comes) boys! I read and an hour or so later I started thinking about how small the world is and how liberating it is to have roots where ever I choose to put some down. A walk on the beach had me down a line of thought revolving around how to make the year ahead different from the year past.
Over ginger ale, I decided that life is superbly jammy! So many possibilities. I can choose to open any door. There are doors again, not just one door, one plan, one way. It used be just a well planned life, everything pre-cooked and efficient. And now, there's the drama of the unknown. And the fun of seeing where this life will take moi.
