You know, I have a problem with being lazy. And by that, I mean I often feel like I am just such a lazy person, even when perhaps I am not. I can do five million things in a day, and I prefer a high level of productivity so...I usually AM multitasking like a drunk wizard. And I am happy to wear that magical cloak of wizardry!
But SOMETIMES I just want to be able to stop. And feel content not moving. Not starting something, not finishing something, not tying up perceived loose knots here and there and gosh darn everywhere . There is always so much I want to achieve I feel like I am struggling to catch up. I am always losing, in the back of my mind. In my mental one woman race I am somehow falling behind. And it feels...not good.
And you know what? That is not okay. Because I'm not IN a race, this is my life. I don't want to get to the end of something, reach some huge goal I've been working towards... And realize I never enjoyed the *getting there* part. That huge chunk in the middle, that is the "living" part. And it is okay to relax, and take a break, and be content in the NOW. It is okay to not always be doing something. It is okay to take a whole afternoon flying a kite, which sure, maybe it doesn't further any of my goals...but it feeds the mind a type of peace that is so, so needed to be a happy and healthy person.
People deserve to rest. People NEED to rest. So you can heal your soul, and give yourself the strength to continue working on the goals in your life. Working towards your dreams is so important. But so is taking the time to just enjoy the DREAMING part. Remind yourself.
