Waking up from my long hibernation
Call it a long hibernation or mid-life crisis. Whatever the name is, it is not a very satisfactory mode. I did enjoy taking the break, or a mid-life recreation (as termed in the cartoon) but as those who feel tired after a very long night of sleep tells you: Too much rest makes you feel restless.
Many things triggered me into this mode: Some family drama and its ripple effect last year, fatigue from the exciting trip (I need a vacation after the vacation!), too much international traveling (4 last year), and most likely, hectic tasks at work...I span from fire-fighting activity 1 to activity 2, urgency was my first and foremost criterion of investing my time and energy. In between the activities, I dropped and didn't think much about and act on those things that were important. I read novels but didn't write much of my diaries. I consumed but didn't create enough. I was in a busy-lazy mode, if you know what I meant.
I think I am finally pulling myself out of this mode, at last. Still yawning, but at least I am stepping out of my cave/burrows (do hippos live in any??) finally...Time to think, act and be creative again!!
