Day 178:  Slowing Down

Day 178.  I find myself nursing an ear infection, sore throat and overall wonky ache.  I started antibiotics this morning—hoping they make me feel better very fast because I have an event I really want to go to tonight.  In the meantime, I realize being sick sucks but it also forces me to slow down.  And I need to slow down.  Twitter has me going a mile a minute.  It’s a fast, intense, continual connection with new people and new energy.  I actually love it.  I realize it blew up several years ago so I’m quite behind the times.  I’m always late to the party.  I liked Seinfeld after it went off the air.  I watch repeats of Friends now, never watched it when it was actually the hottest show on TV.  I did manage not to tweet for almost 48 hours this past weekend, although, I did go on and follow back those who followed me.  I feel like if someone takes the time to follow me, it’s my duty to follow them back. If they’re interested in me and my company, well, then, I’m interested in them.  To me, that’s what Twitter is about.  Connecting with real people with real dreams that can motivate me with their creativity.  Motivation is oxygen to creating.  I need it constantly.  Where am I going with all of this?  Who knows?  I don’t.  Time for more Tylenol.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…and motivate me.
