It’s 2:21am. Exhausted yet wired, I scribble in my journal, “why am I still awake?” I review the day. I make a list of all the things I am going to get done tomorrow, well really, today. I contemplate opening up the PDF of the script Monica sent me. Do I really want to read the script for the first time when I’ve been up for 20 hours after a non-stop day? No. The answer is no. I jot a page worth of random notes for another hour. Finally, I turn off the lights. I pass out and don’t move again until 10:38am. I feel like a train ran over me. I weigh my options.
I choose option three. I need a day away from everything and the house is offering the perfect respite.
My choice works wonders. A clean house, burgers, and a good game have me fully decompressed. Now, to sleep.
Until tomorrow, create from what you have…and decompress as needed.
