Idiosyncratic – Reality of Life and Goals (6)

This might be the kind of 31 days series that happens in 3 months. I'm sorry to say. But I'm also interested in the possibilities of considering the topic for longer. Because sometime no matter how much you want something or how hard you chase it, now just isn't the right time and maybe putting … Continue reading Idiosyncratic – Reality of Life and Goals (6)

The world’s not in charge of me. 

  It's amazing how much a two day conference can wear you out. I took a long nap yesterday. Plus a short nap actually. And a long nap again today. I finally feel back to normal energy levels.  Also: coming home from two days without your kids is hard. Reentry can be killer.
