Hurry Up And Wait

Day 64 is a reminder that I don’t need to rush things. But God, do I want to. I just want everything to be done already. I want to feel better, I want to be happier, I want my finances in order, I want to relax. I really should relax. No matter how hard I think I’m working, if I work too hard, it really just feels like I’m going backwards because things aren’t happening as fast as I think they should. So I need to slow it down, and be more intentional. The way I feel right now is… I’m not done yet.

The grass is always greener.

“Elaine shrugs. She’s not surprised at how other people are able to float in and out as if they have special powers–can walk through walls and travel great distances at a blink, etc., whereas Elaine is always earthbound, stuck.” – A.M. Holmes, Music for Torching Sometimes, I find myself jealous of other people and I don’t even understand why. It’s not of malicious intent – more of a curious thing. I think it’s safe to say that as children, the thought never crosses our mind that there are some things we just cannot do – the world can’t touch us…. I’m not done yet.
