Caught in the middle.
March 2, 2018
I often find myself caught in the middle.
Torn between extremes.
Of this, or of that.
Do something fun.
Do something practical.
Do it because I love it.
Recalling a quote I have posted to my computer:
“What I know is if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.” Oprah Winfrey
I am aware of external pressures.
I am aware of the responsibilities I have to myself, to my family, to my students, and colleagues.
I am also aware that if I don’t fill my cup, no one else will.
I rest in the awareness that leaning into my work.
At this moment.
Means sharing my designs.
And being playful about it.
P.S. Do you see that? Do you see how I was stuck, and how I turned to writing as a release and way to make sense of my experience?
