I have been working far too much lately. Yesterday was my 7th day straight and the week before that I did 6 in a row with only one day off between those weeks. For those of you doing the math, I’ve had one day off between the 30th of December and the 12th of January. It’s my own fault, I have a hard time saying no, especially to someone who is working just as much as I am.
So today, my much needed day off (it was supposed to be yesterday but I got called in – again) this quote popped into my head. I wish it had done so earlier in the week, it was an extremely busy week and I very much could have used a bit of clam and quiet and introspection. Although if it had occurred to me earlier in the week I’m not sure I would have done anything about it, I was so tired at the end of most of my work days it was all I could do to come home, shovel some food into my face and fall into bed.
I have been collecting quotes for years and part of my plan with my weekly blogging is to share
and analyze them. But some quotes don’t really need analyzing, they just need to be experienced. More than once in my life I have stood on bridges and looked down, and I have to photos to prove it. It is amazing how much wisdom we can get from a stuffed bear sometimes.
