I had to take a break from my online activities these past few days because I had several things to take care of — things that got more complex as soon as I had taken one step and errands that took far longer than I had anticipated.
Long story short, events had overtaken me (again) and I found myself forced to take hasty rear-guard actions a few times to avoid being swamped (mostly by work). In fact, it wasn’t until a couple of hours ago that I was finally able to take a deep breathe without having to double-check my mental “High Priority” tray.
I’m still trying to get my breath back, wondering if this is just some temporary respite to lull me into a false sense of security before the next wave comes along and sweep me away again. Either that or fall into a mind-numbing rut — I’m not sure which one I dread more (okay, it’s probably the latter).
I’m still in a consolidation stage, I think. It’s not necessarily what I wanted but that’s the set of cards that I had been dealt with so I guess I need to buckle down and find a way to break out of this temporary hiatus and set off in a new direction. Soon, I hope.
