The behinder I get

Today was not my day.
Nothing really went wrong (besides the lady next to me who broke down in hysterical tears at the bank..... long uncomfortable sad story).
But I am in a funk.
I need to pay close attention to myself and the signals my body and mind and spirit are trying to send to me. Right now it's all a dense fog.
So I'm thinking of taking a hiatus - Anne Morrow Lindberg style.
Well, a mini one.
More from reading blogs than from writing.
And from some other things too.
a break from "projects" and distractions.
a break from being unable to walk past the computer without sitting down.
a break from lengthy "to-do" lists.
a break from maintaining peripheral relationships.
a break (hopefully) from that perpetual cloud of inadequacy, you know the one that always whispers to you "you should be doing something better right now". Without rest, and never quite manages to specify what that "something better" is.

So if everyone would kindly not take my not-reading of your fantastic writings personally....
I've got to take a moment and get my head on straight.
Then I'll be back, and hopefully better than ever.
And imagine the treasures I'll find when I finally open my bloglines!

Good luck during your little break. I'll miss you while you're gone, but don't worry. I'll still be here when you get back and I can really understand. Enjoy and don't feel guilty. (((hugs)))

Oh, good for you! I know it may seem hard to focus on yourself for awhile, but it's something we've all gotta do! I'm definitely inspired! Good luck.

You take whatever you need. I'll be waiting when you return- and I totally understand. Totally.
