I can not remember a time in my life when I was not “planning” something. It’s just my nature to always be creating some new fun event, practically impossible project, fairly unrealistic expectation or weaving a new God Sized dream either for myself or someone else 🙂
Need a dream? I’m your girl. (maybe I should say old woman but I just won’t)
When I get dream drag I know that I am falling into a bit of either burn out or just plain exhaustion. I have faced a bit of both this year.
As I have looked for some fresh motivation over the past few months, I have been surprised to see where I found it.
Wow. Who knew.
For a person who is ALWAYS doing or planning SOMETHING, this has been a true shock.
I have been totally unproductive for about 6 weeks now. I have been busy being places and doing things but have been professionally and personally unproductive.
I have created nothing new.
I have dreamed nothing big.
I have written nothing spellbinding.
I have desperately dug for no great spiritual truths.
It’s been very weird but I have discovered a few wonderful new things without even trying:
1. When you switch from one foot to the other while pushing a swing, it can make you dizzy.
2. The best place in the entire world to read a great fiction is nestled inside a kyack in the middle of a lake.
3. Long car drives that allows you to take ALL your shoes and big bottles of shampoo beats airplane travel a billion to one.
4. Walking up and down boat slips on busy wharfs dreaming of what it would be like to live on a sailboat makes you hungry for fried shrimp.
I hope this post helps you embrace empty 🙂
