I managed to get sick late last week. It’s been a slow-burn kind of sick, not completely debilitating, but making my body feel bad. I’m behind on health.
I’m also behind on work for DayJob, which has been the state of affairs for pretty much the last 2 months.
I’m also behind on making these little skater prints. The 4th is ready to print, but I haven’t found time to get to it, especially since I am teaching myself to make videos while I work. Video complicates things.
These 3 are pulling me in different directions – my body wants me to stop and do nothing (or just play video games and eat soup), my mind wants me to go to work and finish my projects, and my heart wants to be printing and emitting more stuff into the world.
This “balance” is a pain to figure out.
I put “balance” in quotes because what I mean by balance is more of a scheduling issue than an emotional issue. When people speak of “balance”, I hear them mostly talking about emotional balance. In other words, not being obsessed.
Obsession is just the way I roll.
Anyway, it turns out the mind is right, I need to get my work done (something about getting a paycheck).
Eventually I’ll be completely caught up, and be able to work to my heart’s content.
