I’ve been at a bit of a crossroads for the past month or so. I quit my job in June and I have spent the past two months recollecting myself, taking a bit of a breather, and generally being busier than I had anticipated for this summer. I am definitely “in between” right now and it is not always a comfortable place to be.
Last night I had a horrible sleep. Wretched. I got to bed at 1:00 (I was sorting papers downstairs and catching up on correspondence) and Cate woke up with a nightmare at 1:10. I stayed in bed with her until about 2:30 just dozing, no sleep as my brain was still going a mile a minute. I’m pretty sure I didn’t fall asleep until about 3:30 and then I first woke up at 6:30 and got up at 7:30.
Thankfully, the kids slept late this morning and I was able to shower, pray, and eat before they were awake. I hopped on the computer to go through my usual blogroll and these two quotes popped up when I came to SwissMiss:
“You can do anything, but not everything.”
— David Allen
“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
– Mary Oliver
Indeed. Food for thought.
