“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” – Thornton Wilder
I’ve had a busy, frustrating week. I knew this week would be busy with all the work and outside work stuff that was on the agenda, but it just seemed like nothing was easing up or even remotely going smoothly. Weeks like this you feel like your heart and brain are constantly racing and trying to get ahead, your body feels exhausted and the piles seem to keep growing.
I left work unsettled at least a good 90 minutes after I’d hoped to and I was not looking forward to the chaos that would be involved with Halloween festivities. We have people over, Lo always puts lots of food out, the kids run around like lunatics and this is all BEFORE the trick-or-treating. I was hoping for a calm evening because I was unable to stop thinking about unresolved items at work.
