With the many impending changes, sometimes it’s difficult to stay calm. These days I feel like my brain is always busy with flights of ideas and a frenzy of worries, that I have to mentally & physically pause and just let myself take it all in. Then resolve to remind myself that despite the frustrations and everyday obstacles, I am also privileged with opportunities, simple pleasures and adventures that not everyone get to experience.
Things as simple as going to this year’s Spring Tradeshow–where we found a few interesting things, indulged in junk food, splurged on some spices, and even got spoiled with a bunch of free stuff;
Or learning a card game
(and, in the process, trying to learn not to be so competitive);Or dealing with a terribly cluttered room (desks filled with knickknacks, stacks of boxes, etcetera etcetera) knowing that it will get better once we finish packing for the move (which is another story).…and then there’s the renewed interest in escapist literature, sparked by a book that I have tucked away and almost forgotten about.
