The Ups and Downs of Being Busy

Bending Time

This has been an extremely full week for me with college club meetings, teaching and podcast tasks. I’m of two minds about being busy. On the one hand, I like being with people. On the other hand, it’s emotionally and physically taxing to be in crowds. I find it exhausting. Which means I need down time in between to recharge. In all honesty, I don’t know how I worked full-time with little time for relaxation.

This is something I’ve struggled with my entire life, balancing being busy with the right amount of time to recharge. I haven’t figured it out yet. But these times of intense activity make me appreciate the lull times more. Next week might afford me some time to relax.

How do you balance your work/leisure life?

I wish I had time to write a longer post, but I’m off to another meeting this afternoon. 

Until next week …

I hope you get the proper balance of activity and rest this weekend.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
