Having celebrated Thanksgiving, now I return to real life — except it doesn’t feel like real life yet. When one’s patterns and routines are out of their usual paths, nothing feels normal. This is not necessarily a bad thing — it’s a prime time to try new things, incorporate new thoughts or habits, and get some things done — but it needs to resettle quickly.
I guess I’m feeling particularly out of synch right now because I’ve been out of town, and yet now am not celebrating the holiday with my family. Usually this would be another lazy day, but instead I’m working. And truthfully, I want to be working. I don’t really want to be out in Black Friday.
Here’s to another out of synch weekend, with the prospect of returning to pattern next week. By this time on next Friday, I’ll be feeling amazingly normal, I have no doubt.
