It is never easy to be responsible when I am procrastinating or feeling overwhelmed. The last few weeks have been a mishmash of being in service to others, working out, writing, and learning new areas of the law. I feel a bit disoriented, and I wonder sometimes why I find it necessary to juggle so many things at once.
I also just got a client a six figure settlement, and that contentment didn’t last more than a few days. What if I have come an adrenaline junkie? The idea isn’t far-fetched. It is also the realization that not many days go by and I don’t think about Papa or Baby Maasi, or Bebo and a dear friend going through her second round of Cancer treatment.
It just feels that part of life that gets you down can really pull you down if you let it. There are days that I do want it to. When I just want to stay in bed, sleep in, snooze, pretend that with my eyes closed, all is well, but I hear the dog’s gentle snore, and I feel the sunlight hit my eyes, and then again I squeeze my eyes and look over to see my beautiful wife, and I am just grateful.
Being responsible is not half bad. Most days. Happy Monday!
