We are up at my sister’s house, where it seems as though all we do is eat and sit in front of their big screen TV. On the one hand, it’s great. There’s no real responsibility, my brother in-law creates these amazing meals, and they have “On Demand” which allows us to watch things we’d otherwise never see. So far, we have seen almost the entire first season of HBO’s much talked about series “Girls”, and this afternoon we ordered up “Moonrise Kingdom”. We also watched “In Time”, the sci-fi movie with Justin Timberlake where time is used as currency. All three have been strange and yet enjoyable just the same.
The downside is that although it’s nice to be away from the constant stress of home, I feel as though it’s lurking just around the corner. Not only that, but I’m not doing much to propel myself towards the life I want. Now granted, I’m not sure what my next move should be, so if I was at home I’d probably be just as unsettled.
I feel as though I’m so close to finding my audience and making my books the financial success I need them to be in order to live the life I desire, that it’s maddening. It’s like having a word on the tip of your tongue and yet you can’t come up with it no matter how hard you try. It’s there, but just out of reach. Oh, well, I have until the end of the year to relax and see if it won’t come to me when I stop pressing so hard.
How about you? Are you taking some time to relax and reboot?
