Day 59 – Sabbatical

without comments

Decided to give myself at least the whole of December, if not a month or two more after that, to have some time-out.

Much as I want to get back on track, I realised after talking to SB that I’m not ready and I’m just putting more pressure on myself. The dam has burst and I’ll just have to wait out the flood of a few decades of suppressed emotions, a lot that I’m still struggling to recognise.

In the meantime, I’ll be doing a lot of catching up – with myself, and getting in touch with my feelings, in particular The Pain, which I’m not supposed to run away from :-/ So, the rest of life will just have to wait a little longer.

I don’t think I’ve ever taken a break of more than a week or two. What about you?


The spring-cleaning continues and I’m amazed that I’m still able to fill bags with unwanted stuff. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since I’ve a tendency for impulse shopping and carting home things that I don’t really want (notice I don’t say “need”, heh).

Oh well…. I sure hope someone benefits from my ‘recycling’!
