Today is the first day of a 2 week “vacation” for me.
Rest assured I will be plenty busy over the next 2 weeks but in the form of, in a car driving from one end of the universe to the other. Normally my week days are full of all kinds of challenging obstacles which are delt with by land line phone, cell phone, fax, and email through a lightning slow computer in front of me. Saving mankind can be demanding and requires a super hero to have the most up to date technology available. Too bad the super hero store only had a computer from 2001 on the day I was there (Ughh, sorry, side gripe and off topic)!
Initially I was super excited about the possibility of being somewhat unreachable for 2 weeks but now on the eve of the first work day of my “vacation”, I already have a feeling of being a bit lost. All the files are packed, my favorite pen is now complaining and lonely because he doesn’t have his buddy the stapler to talk to when I’m out of the room! They say it takes a few days of being off to outrun the shadow cast from previous “stuff”. Stuff that was once thought to be the most important things in the world, when in reality were not so important after all.
The move is a major advancement in life forward and puts me on the fast track to the life I envision and dreamed about. “Be your future” a smart person once said, so I am. Oh wait, that was me who said that! :)!! So, I will give it a go for a few days with one eye on the road and the other on that shadow to see if it can be left behind.
My favorite pen will just have to get to know the paperclips next to him in the “important papers bag” for a little while. He’ll see his buddy the stapler back in action in a few weeks. The time away for me, I’m sure will reveal a wonderful new perspective on life, people, and direction for myself. I’m pretty excited about it..
