These last few days have come with a heaviness and a lack of clarity. They've been beautiful in a physical sense, but I couldn't help noticing a nagging discomfort. The hours seemed to whizz by in a blur, and I felt less creative and productive.
Slowly but surely the root cause of it dawned on me. As much of a blessing as connectivity has been for me, it can also be overwhelming, draining. I like most things at a measured pace, and there are times when social media and online interactions can feel like a frenzied, dizzying dance where I'm running out of breath. Each time I pull back for a while, I feel more like myself. I observe and digest more mindfully, my thoughts are clearer, and I feel as if I'm treating myself more gently.
