feeling vaguely discontented
Tuesday, May 04, 2010
We've had a surprisingly beautiful spring in the Chicago area, my mother's health is better after a crisis this winter, my husband is feeling more like himself, and I find myself feeling uncomfortable and edgy for no apparent reason. I put off so much this winter "until things settle down" but now that "things" have settled, I'm having a hard time getting started. I have a lot of restless energy, but little focus.
Perhaps this discomfort is a necessary prelude to change. Now that the family crises have passed, I have the luxury of determining my goals and that shouldn't be rushed. So I need to figure out how to get myself moving on the day-to-day tasks that have to get done so that I CAN take the time to daydream about how I want my life to be.
