The other day, I wrote on my BBM status "Quiet Time." I seriously meant that I had to put myself on a time-out. Didn't feel like talking, texting, tweeting, listening, hanging, nothing. I just wanted to be quiet and listen to the Divine. Lately it seems that life has been one big worldwind. There's the success of the interviews I've been doing with well-known artists; I was "recognized" in the street as Samantha Luck who does video interviews for www.jukeboxdc.com; the publishing process; being solicited to freelance; 9-5 really becoming demanding; and then throw dating, being there for friends and family, making sure I feed my face (when I stress, I don't eat), and maintaining some type of stability and peace in the mix, and it's quite the juggling act, especially when I feel like I'm in a transitional phase- having not really made a home for myself like I had planned to by now...See, that's a lot, right? Anywho, quiet time, time-out, meditation, all that has been appropriate. I just want to hear what I'm supposed to hear, go where I'm supposed to go, and do what I am supposed to do.
Sometimes you also need a minute to reevaluate, analyze moves, strategize and plan. How am I supposed to do that if I never take a time-out to just be quiet and reflect?
Plus, OMG! I'm 28- 2 years to 30 now...Geez Luise, where did time go? Gotta reassess, gotta reflect, gotta be silent.
I have to remind myself that I don't have to be "on" all the time. It's okay to take a chill pill every once in a while.
