Don't be fooled by the picture. The universe has not literally kicked me in the teeth. However it has taken me down a peg or two. After attempting to juggle a million things at once, I watched this Ted talk – and then went down like a ton of bricks. Pharyngitis!? I am wholly convinced that this talk on vulnerability is the reason I got sick. I'm not moaning about being sick (tedious as it was and is continuing to be) – I know that I needed something to physically inhibit me from trying to do it all, and I think that is often the case with many people. While I do get panicky about 'holy shit I have so many deadlines and I've been sleeping for nearly a weeeeeeek!!!' I also realise that some of those deadlines now need to be pushed back. Stiff shit, right?
Anyway – after spending 6 days in bed, I have had plenty of time for my brain to catch up with my body. I've written a list. I now need to get started on my sublists and get to work. I'm back in the studio, I'm wearing actual clothes (as opposed to jammies), and things are happening – including a lot of procrastination (see image above).
I think I have learned a valuable lesson here. Slow the fuck down and get over yourself.
Happy Tuesday every one! May your winter be bountiful with roast potatoes.
