Lost Time

May 2, 2008 at 8:06 am 4 comments

I’m so glad I wrote that about the blessings of bulimia, because I realized it wasn’t all lost time. Ever since I recovered, I’ve been going at a steady pace, sometimes frenetic, and definitely with shades of workaholic behavior woven into the pattern. The other day I realized that this is related to the chip on my shoulder: I lost so much time through the sickness that I have to make up for it.

There are so many projects. There is so much I want to accomplish in this short lifetime, and I wasted so much time! So I’ve been busting my a– to make up for it. That really isn’t the way to go. If I continue at this pace, I’ll end up dropping from sheer exhaustion. My social life and relaxation generally wait on the back burner. But there’s so much going on, I’ll never get around to them if I don’t make the time.

The other day, I was on the phone with my mother. She reminded me of what Granny used to say: “Did you get outside today? Did you smell the flowers?” I didn’t lose time. I’m right on schedule, even though I would have planned it differently. But I’m not the one who plans this stuff, I’m just a dot in the universe! Today’s note is short, because I’m going to practice yoga – now!

And since I really appreciate the music I’ve come across on other blog sites, I’m going to offer you a treat to day – from my favorite German punk band, a song in English. Have a great day! And please do me a favor, let’s everybody do something nice for themselves and someone else today! Just for fun!

    Amen! And thank you. Such a simple statement, but so true. The recent understanding I have received has raised my spirits immensely. The wisdom is there for the taking as well. I just need to listen and… trust.
