Do you ever have days where you don't come up for air?
I mean, the ones where you're so busy, you seriously don't remember to take a break, and you don't notice how much your body hurts until you fall into bed at night? The last 2 days have been like that for me. And I've got a funny feeling there's going to be more where that came from. I'm not too concerned though. I've done this before in life. I like to give 150%, or more, and then take nice long breaks. Mellow times when life just runs at a slower pace.
I do have to be careful to not push myself too far. Don't we all?
Sometimes I gently trick myself into doing something that's not work. And tonight I had added into my calendar and Outdoor Cinema viewing. As the sun was setting tonight, there were a thousand reasons for not going. But one motion led to the next. And would you know it, I found myself sitting under the stars, watching Pirates of the Caribbean 4 at Riverside Park in Kamloops, BC
It was delightful. There were parents and children everywhere. Whole families having a night out on a beautiful summer night after a blistering hot day. Fresh popcorn and big vats of iced tea for sale.
Yes, delightful is the word I was thinking of. I'm so glad I decided to shut off the computer and spend some time in the fresh air.
It was time to come up for fresh air tonight! I needed it.
